  1. NOT sure anyone will see this…i just wanted to tell people i haven;t got back to them (from this telethon) Jana, Brenda, Patty and all…as i got something that could be life threatening symptoms and been doing all i can to get through this, find out what’s wrong (lots of tests at clinic) and will back when have the energy. too. It came on only this month but before that was just overdoing everything dealing with financial and other issues..and then hit with this…I am doing ok now and no bad news yet just was unable for all this time to even do or say much…HOpe to come back all well and pick up with things at some future time…Happy New Year to all.

    • Marian, thanks for letting us know! So sorry to hear about your tribulations. I hope you’ll have a new year with good health and with inspiration and relaxation in just your perfect individual balance. Happy New Year to you, too!

      P.S. In case something I write “sounds” weird, it’s just because of my English. All I write is well-intended. 🙂

      • thanks ..i think i will do well…just had a super scary and challenging time with it…but feel a change /shift now so will see….and will update when got something…and can. Thank you~~best new years to all…Will love when can reconnect.

    • Marian, thanks for the update. I hope you will get all the answers you need from your tests and be well on your way to better health very soon for a great 2018!

    • thanks Brenda , thanks Jana.. ..i think i will do well…just had a super scary and challenging time with it…but feel a change /shift now so will see….and will update when got something…and can. Thank you~~best new years to all…Will love when can reconnect.

  2. I’ve put worksheets and audios for my Telesummit workshops on my website. Whoever is interested, you might want to visit. My workshops were those about the instant break to regain your calmth and go back to your creativity strengthened. Enjoy!

    And here in German: Auf meiner Webseite findest du ein deutsches Handout und einen Mitschnitt der Entspannungsübung zum Anhören. Viel Spaß!

    • Even tho it’s 3 am and i have to stop these all nighters …..i couldn’t wait to at least look at what you posted for us…WOW …I LOVE what you have there … AND it’s so alligned with what i love to do with my arts and dance with others and myself too. I LOVE your pics and explanations and ideas and reading sources…wonderful. Mindfulness especially resonates and this: “Don’t avoid the tension
      , feel it. Scan your body.” much like what i do with warm ups in dance vs traditional dance (since i love tuning into body and mind /brain…and not avoiding what you feel to “try” to or change to something “better”. So was very happy to see that. ………Will get to your blog another time ..and sure i will gain from and love it..thank you so much. Wish we were all in same room talking…more …about these things we all like to talk about and share knowledge and experience. Now I am so pressed all the time with survival and that has to change…so i will ……it’s not how to live. will get more into your post to us and your blog at better time and will love it.

  3. Patti K…I just got the books a few days ago…thank you. Right now just made it home with vehicle stalling out every couple of blocks so really on the edge now to find one. The dance class i am planning to do with those with down syndrome did not get any students yet so we are working on how to advertise it and where. I hope to reconnect when i have a car and thus can allow my mind to take on more than what doing and how doing it all without one. Meanwhile did just want to let you know I got the books and happy to have them. Any body who has friends and family that were affected by these hurricanes and /or in Texas..Fla, etc…wishing/sending compassionate and healing recovery thoughts to you. That’s all for now. Thanks all again for a great day and more wonderful possibilities in the future…soon.

  4. I love Barbara’s work..Total genius from scanners information to everything else. Nothing like it anywhere else on the subject. I would be lost if it weren’t for that first bit of knowledge i got from watching her on public television talking about what a scannner is. It totally changed my entire perspective on my entire life and what i would do from that point on. I was so sleep deprived during the telesummit so still recovering and realizing what i learned. I did get some important and useful information that i can apply and that i needed in my life but i know that the real benefit of this is to take it further into action. For now i have alot to think about and alot of decisions to make but had to say this right away. I am so proud and so touched by what all the people have done with her knowledge to help others in all kinds of ways. This is so needed in our world. To help people find themselves in very real ways use what they can do and who they are more in the world or in private life ..where ever it can make a difference. I have a request that the woman who’s name escapes me but probably have it in my notes when get to look at them (it will be days ..with what is going on in my life now and preparing for in next few days)…the one who wants to help people be more mobile..physically…and with age. What i have done and know and given my age and experiences i may be able to share somethings that will encourage, inspire and assist in her endeavor and may be mutually beneficial too for both of us…I started out like her …with no idea what i was capable of , even without the knowledge or training, just that deep and sincere longing to do it…and i followed it ..and it led to the best experiences of my life . it took a leap into the unknown against all advice from everyone who thought it couldn’t be done…and i did what i wanted to do and got better and better at it from trusting what was inherent in me. Then there were others i could learn from too along the way.. of course and that made what i knew even better. And then i met people who had the same dreams and ideas as i had and were doing what i dreamed of doing and had done too and it was finding gold to me. When i heard this women share her dream about mobility it was hard for me not to interrupt when i could feel her desire over the phones and reminded me of my own ..even to this day..what more i want to do i would love if we can connect. I couldn’t interrupt what was going on already for her and then it was over and too late! i also have questions from what learned that day will be back with a few day s or more…hope this is up that long..let me know.

    • Marian, my name is Brenda and I’m the one who mentioned my desire to help people be more mobile throughout their lifetime. I would love to hear your thoughts and talk with you after we’ve both had a chance to process a great weekend. 😎 It was a great thrill for me to participate with you all and I appreciate not only the new knowledge but the inspiration. I’ve been busy brainstorming since the end of the tele-summit trying to continue to think outside the box and think about my next steps.

      My email address is brendaattheranch (at) Yahoo dot com.

      • Yes it was exciting for me too and am still processing also more than expected. It has changed my thoughts…about myself and where going. and yes isn’t it great how everyone was..i felt like i just loved everybody. This should be how it is everywhere , every day…at work,…at home…at schools…the bank…smile..etc. I hope Barbara’s ideas and ways her people carry them out become a trend . It’s time….for a more supportive world where people do what they love and don’t just survive. Ok i am very happy you got word i was wanting to connect and later for me too…this week is till a bit rough in overwhelm but getting lighter and easier with each day so far. So by end of week hope to be enough progressed in these urgent matters all at once dealing with and can reach out for more again. Thank you and Barbara and all again so much.

        • Marian, I love this comment of yours! “It’s time….for a more supportive world where people do what they love and don’t just survive.” So true! Yes, it was a wonderful day. I’m glad you feel so inspired by it all. So do I. 🙂 A lot of new thoughts running through this Scanner body now… Thanks for these wonderful words.

          • Thanks Jana. Nice to hear you feel that way too. Just back from days away and still working to clear a space to converse again more with others and see where at with everything learned and to have more exchange with more people about things learned. . I really got so psyched about writing as well as dance. And realized i wanted to do it so much more than i even had a clue of how much. so now it isn’t even about being motivated and making time…it’s just so there, so in me, so surfaced…so pressing me to do it..i just will. Also same about doing talks. Everyone made me feel so much the drive i had deep inside me to do that too but had buried it thinking: ” no way.”..Now that thinking is gone..and i don’t care ..i will just go forward and do it. So that’s another thing that came out of this wonderful day and very unexpected.

      • Brenda (.I hope it’s ok with everyone that i am posting all this info here and not inappropriate …feel free to delete if is…) :Having been involved in movement awareness a long lifetime. and with developing some of my own original you seem to be doing…..i have so many things want to share and ideas of other people whose stories in this field so hugely inspired me and gave me courage and a kind of support/confidence i otherwise didn’t have before reading about them and what they did. So while taking a moment here and might not again for awhile …want to get started with sharing a little bit here. Here is some starters tho not sure if ANY of this is what you might find useful so feel free to say if is or isn’t as these are only my favorite reading resources for movement and there are other things i can share when have more time to think about it…(for example some things i did with people when i was so afraid i didn’t have what it takes and so unsure of myself ….and what happened when i did it anyway) . For now tho great reads for more info that may even give you ideas or help overcome insecurity to put yourself out there…: Trudi Schoop was my most inspiration and one of the first dance therapists tho not named as such but her work was so outstanding (and she just only passed this plane around a few years ago, having lived quite a long life..I think she was still teaching in her nineties) and as was saying she was so outstanding that her book sells for 4 to 5 hundred dollars!,(i don’t think ANYONE has been like her) but her book is in some libraries (luckily i got it over 35 years ago for normal book prices then) (and i still cherish every word to the max) and is a thrilling read called :Won’t You Join the Dance?
        And Feldenkrais work is closer to what you might do. He was so original and the numbers of people he helped is outstanding… a huge pioneer of new ways to move and amazing results for all ages and will change everyone’s outlook on movement ..IF you get a good instructor. There’s a lot on You tube but not all are the best instructors (some are not even doing Feldenkrais and calling it that..but if you get some of his books (libraries have them) you can tell who is…Also libraries have some videos . His books are wonderful though (some are harder than others to follow so you have to read a few of them and choose what resonates best with you.

        But best i can recommend as a read that almost every one loves (and it blows everyone’s mind too)…(and will inspire you to be innovative with your very own ideas and confident about them too) is the book “The Brain’s Way of Healing” and the chapter in THAT book on Feldenkrais.which i think is better than any other written works about him or by him! And everyone should read that book but start with the Feldenkrais chapter (chapter 5) and then read to the end (it not just on the brain’s on so many things about the body) and then come back and read the other chapters ..(just my bias…the earlier ones aren’t as exciting as the chapter from Feldenkrais on are. It’s a page turner and has something for everyone. My family who never reads a single book i send them ever…Have read this one and tell everyone to read it. It is totally inspiring for whatever anyone is doing. And it is information everyone can use and should have. I am looking forward to rereads of Barbara’s now and the ones i haven’t read it…as they are right up alongside these great books. Trudi sort of is like Barbara in her incredibly out of the box and simplistic yet hugely powerful way of expressing what is obvious once said but no one before said it…(like the scanner concept is). I think Barbara would love Trudi’s book too. Feldnkrais’s writing style is not something everyone can follow…(it’s hard to really write about movement and then his approach was so unique too)…but if you do like his writing , if you can flow with it…you love it. MOre value tho is in doing the kind of approach to body awareness and movement he pioneered…that made so many people overcome any limitation…even huge ones…but better to read about it…than for me to even hint at what is almost unbelievable. The chapter on him in the book recommended above is best i ever read of him and his work..but mostly i went to workshops and private sessions based on his work . I did get to read lots more books on it and his own too after that and still i like what the person did with it all in that one chapter in the brain book best. Most people i tell about the Brain’s Way of Healing book…thank me for months and months following. The title and even the description does not really give a good clue what it is about and what a great read it is. None of the authors other books come close to this one (in my opinion) . You can find it on Norman Doidge, MD. and the latest version is best. Finally…how these other people’s work helped me was to open up my own imagination and trust to let my own ideas flow and to try them out….as this was exactly what they did do and surpassed the best in their field doing just that…(as Barbara is also a great example of for us—in finding ourselves and doing something with what we find…quite an amazing art., and one of the greatest gifts can ever give another).

        • Hi Marian,

          Just wanted to let you know I saw your post. I haven’t had a chance to review it in detail but I see you’ve mentioned what sound like some great resources to check out. I’ll be able to go over it in detail this weekend.

          I was at an intensive 3 day workshop over the weekend, through the American College of Sports Medicine that allowed me to explore the potential of Personal Training as part of the means to accomplishing my goals. And it was intense–they covered a LOT of material. So I’m brain dead at the moment.

          I look forward to reviewing your tips in more detail this weekend once I’ve had a chance to refresh. Thank you! – Brenda

          • Wonderful Brenda. Feel free to when ready ask for or dialogue more if i can add or explain anything.

        • Marian, I love Feldenkrais, too! Doing the exercises saves me from back pain every single day! 🙂

          Thanks for sharing your insights. I’m going to have a look at the book you recommended.

          • Great to hear that…love to hear that. And there’s so much more that can get out of his work at deeper levels which are not in books ..will share sometime or even send you something related…if want it…..And if you already have been to classes or workshops probably know then. (About Feldenkrais) . thanks for posting on your site ..will check soon as can…

        • Marian,

          I was reading your post tonight and I’ve taken your advice and I’ve started by purchasing a copy of “The Brain’s Way of Healing” book. Not only because you recommended the 5th chapter especially as a lead in to Feldenkrais, but I also seem to be on a roll with reading books about the brain and the influence on the body, having recently read “Brain Rules” by John Medina and “Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain” by John Ratey, both of which I loved. So “The Brain’s Way of Healing” seems to fit right in that mold.

          As to Feldenkrais, was reading about him on Wikipedia and he sounds like a true scanner and led a fascinating life!

          But I shall have to curb my enthusiasm for starting “The Brain’s Way of Healing” for about a month, as, coming off the 3 day workshop I just attended, I have decided to pour myself into my studies for the next 5 weeks then sit for the ACSM CPT exam (I took it once before about 3 years ago–very hard test–failed by a measily 7 points!).

          Actually, my primary reason for wanting to read Feldenkrais was because the Wikipedia article said “…it is not supported by medical evidence.” That right there tells me it is highly likely he was on the right track. I can’t speak for other countries, but the modern healthcare system in America contributes to why people are so unhealthy. They confine themselves to small boxes that they refuse to step out of. I’m curious to read more about Feldenkrais and see what the similarity is (if there is similarity) to osteopathic manipulation therapy. Thanks for the tips on these resources. I look forward to delving into them and seeing how it might shape my own journey.

          • wow..After reading all that ..i can hardly wait (but will to hear from you after read that book and what THEY say about him (and they are MD’S who couldn’t be helped by medicine themselves that do most of the talking in that book!) Brain’s Way of Healing…is going to send you through the roof …beyond expectation anyone could have or imagine about what we can do and is being now..even this day right now ..even in medical hospitals because of this book and these people. And you be ecstatic about FeldenKrais if you read that chapter on him and how he helped (in high places ..including world leaders) that no one else could. And never got in mainstream til now…and now even mainstream physical therapists ARE being taught some of it ..because had to…or would be made fools once enough public knew the potentials of…So will share more later about all that..and i can wait….you do what have to to get this wonderful dream accomplished with what taking on right now…excited for you. And i just got some good news too when was getting discouraged again…so. Next time more..and if in another month or later it’s all good.

    I order your stuff to take a look. Honestly, I normally wouldn’t pick this material, but I thought I would take a look.
    I was more interested in your comments about the write/speak program and procrastination but I want the bonus materials and to get to know your work. Now, it wasn’t clear what I do next to do to get the bonus materials. Plus, I am not sure what I am going to to with stuff that has excel sheets. I have a friend and virtual assistant named Ryan who has a Computer Science and Psychology. A great guy half my age that is computer literate.
    I operate better the old fashion way by phone Riverside Ca 951 area and number 334/2303 no need to call but I prefer it if there is any problem

    • Hi Jim,
      I’m sure you’ll learn a lot from Patty’s material; I had a coaching session with her during WriteSpeak and loved it! And she’s specialised on small businesses.

      To get the bonus material, you make a copy or screenshot of the receipt that confirms that you purchased the material and send that receipt via email to the email address right below Patty’s name.

      O wait, I can copy it down for you, here it is:

      When you do that, all people who have offered bonus material (me included) send you their stuff! 🙂
      Hope that helps.
