The Rubenfeld Synergy Method, created by Ilana Rubenfeld in the 1960s, is an elegant, powerful system that integrates bodywork, intuition, and psychotherapy. Memories and emotions stored in our bodies can result in energy blocks and imbalances. Rubenfeld Synergy utilizes talk, movement, awareness, imagination, humor, and compassionate touch as gateways--contacting and melting frozen tensions and emotions, freeing the body from pain and the mind from suffering. Trained as a conductor at the Juilliard School of Music, Ilana originally turned to bodywork to heal the muscle spasms that were paralyzing her arms. Now she has distilled her experience with thousands of clients into a dynamic program anyone can use to discover the inner "music" of their own life. The Listening Handincludes: Body-mind exercises designed to awaken awareness, free your breathing, and reveal the body metaphors that tell your life story Guided steps to change that break through inner barriers and lead to concrete improvements in your daily lifeand relationships Energy explorations for contacting the energy field in yourself and others--and how you can use it to heal Talk and touch duets that allow you to "hear" the nonverbal messages of your body Experiments for couples that gently increase communication, intimacy, and sexual openness A self-care toolbox--practices that enable helpers to avoid physical, emotional, and spiritual burnout Plus a complete Seven-Day Mind Your Muscles Program for tension release, body alignment, and enhanced flexibility Filled with Ilana's trademark humor and marvelous storytelling,The Listening Handis a treasury of techniques and insights, an extraordinary gift from an extraordinary healer.
