This is our 8th Summit. We know what we are doing. Still, you might be thinking, you have come to the first seven, what could be new? We have secured all new Summit speakers. Each of these new-to-the-summit experts are experienced thought leaders, authors, and somatic professionals.

Let these experts in body/mind movement guide you to a new understanding of yourself. Through riveting talks and short explorations; allow yourself to experience how awareness heals.

Keynote Speaker: Neil Theise

Neil Theise, Move Better Feel Better 2024 Summit

The Boundless Body: Complexity, Consciousness, and Being

Dr. Theise will take you on a scientific journey, into how our complex physical beings are woven from the processes of biology, chemistry, and quantum physics, using principles of complexity theory that show the universe to be a self-organizing, self-generating system. In doing so, they can re-experience that sense of connection with which we are born, understand how consciousness relates to existence, and appreciate how Wisdom – understanding the true nature of reality in keeping with all contemporary science – leads to Compassion as a fundamental expression of our lives.

Neil Theise is a professor of pathology at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. Through his scientific research, he has been a pioneer of human liver pathobiology, adult stem cell plasticity, and the anatomy of the human interstitium as a body-wide communication network. Dr. Theise’s studies in complexity theory have led to interdisciplinary collaborations in fields such as integrative medicine, consciousness studies, and science-religion dialogue.

Understand the somatic power of making the impossible, possible… like never before

The Move Better, Feel Better Summit will help you uncover insights into the way you use your brain, which influences pain, physical limitations/injury, and emotional challenges that you may be facing.

Join us to learn how harnessing the power of neuroplasticity allows you to make the impossible, possible.

“What I’m after isn’t flexible bodies, but flexible brains. What I’m after is to restore each person to their human dignity.”
~ Moshe Feldenkrais

What’s holding you back?

Have you ever felt as though you’d just like a whole new life? A new body that you feel you can work with, rather than battle with? How about a little dignity?

You’re not alone.

And now you can access important pathways so that you can get what you need, as you learn “from the inside out”.

It’s a journey like no other, full of healing through awareness.

We’ll explore Awareness Through Movement, the Feldenkrais Method, Yoga, the Mystical, Voice, Corrective Exercise, Ritual, Community, Mindfulness, NLP, Anatomy and Consciousness.

Different to the prescriptive approach you have seen elsewhere? Yes!

During the 5 days of the Move Better, Feel Better Summit you will weave a new story for yourself; one in which health can spontaneously arise … and one that may contain a few surprises!

It’s natural to think “this can’t help me; I’ve tried everything.” But that doesn’t allow for the stories of change that pour in from participants who have attended in previous years.

The beauty of the Move Better, Feel Better Summit is that you can attend from your own home. You can join us live for the sessions that interest you, and that fit your schedule.

And you can participate from where you are currently at in terms of your physical, mental and spiritual health.

After the Live presentations, watch any that you couldn’t attend on the 48-hour replay so that you don’t have to miss a thing.

“Thank you for such an opportunity and incentive! So many wonderful sensations and experiences. The closest description of the feeling that I kept experiencing is the felt sense of ‘replacements’ with no surgery, pain or recovery time! Hip replacements, shoulder replacements, spine replacement, jaw replacement, right lung replacement, leg replacements. It currently feels to me like a whole ‘body replacement’! Thank you to everyone who helped make this summit possible. I feel so appreciative.”

Move Better, Feel Better Summit?

The Move Better, Feel Better Summit is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join LIVE to learn from an unmissable panel of Somatic Speakers, each bringing you content that will help you explore what is possible for your own experience.

What past participants say about the Move Better, Feel Better Summit

Icon Move Better Feel Better 2024 Summit Awareness Heals
“I would like to thank you, deeply! The teaching of your summit, your wisdom, your listening and your rich questions and exchanges in each and all of the lessons were truly inspiring.

I found many of them extremely rich and bringing such quality: Anatomy, improvisation, writing, reflection. Wow! There were some moments when it felt like a dream to be able to have such an opportunity to slow down and think, feel, listen, observe and share.

I have already felt subtle changes or acuity in perception; not only physical but also personal and cognitive. There was some kind of a shift in my way of being and engaging within my own reality. I really want to thank you.”
