Complexity in Motion: Exploring Complexity by Considering the Way Very Young Children Learn to Walk, Talk, and Make Sense of the World

Very young children learn through an innate self-directed spontaneous playful whole-person process, "Organic Learning." How can we understand this process? What can we discover from it about adults? About personal healing? About organizations? About social transformation? How can we apply it intentionally, in our personal lives and in our work?

This month we will explore Organic Learning through dialogue and experientially, through movement. Steven Shafarman has been developing the idea of Organic Learning for several decades, building on the work of his mentor, the Israeli neuroscientist, engineer, and judo master, Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. In science and society, the current dominant paradigm is reductionist, mechanistic, dualistic, and deterministic. A new paradigm is emerging with complexity science, and we will use Organic Learning to formulate its conceptual foundations.

Join our guest, Steven Shafarman, who is the creator of the FlexAware® approach to fitness, exercise, and healing, He is the author of five books and recently completed the first FlexAware Fitness DVD. He lives in Washington DC, teaches individuals and groups, and educates new FlexAware teachers.
