Magazine, Journal of Ordinary Thought
Date: 
Winter 2013
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
From introduction: "...60 writers take on the on-again, off-again affair between mind and body. They take inventory part by part, feeling by feeling, urge by irresistible urge. They address birth and death and everything in between. The struggle to resist the status quo and take ownership of how we see and think about ourselves is fought in many ways on these pages. Not unexpectedly, the writers prove once again, hilariously, mournfully, tenderly, that the personal is political." Writers for this issue come from St. Leonard's House and from the following Chicago Public Library branches: Bezazian, Budlong Woods, Richard M. Daley, Hall, King, Mabel Manning.

Moshe's Healing Touch

Catalog Number: 
Other, Moshe's Healing Touch
Date: 
August 1976
Abstract: 
Bruce Holmes is a runner who has chondromalacia of the knee, and he cannot run more than 50 miles a knee without his knees "fall[ing] apart on [him]." To deal with this, he refers to the writings of Moshe Feldenkrais, a "72-year old Israeli" who has a doctorate in physics, and the creator of a therapy based on his theories about human thought and the flaws therein. He suffered a debilitating knee injury which the doctors told him there was no solution for, and he came up with theories of his own regarding human musculature. He wrote up these theories in a book entitled The Body and Mature Behavior. The article tells of the author's relationship with Feldenkrais and how he came to be healed.
