Olivia Cheever: Mending the body by moving the mind
Quotes from Clients

Welcome
If you’ve found your way to a website about Feldenkrais Method®, Bones For Life®, and Leadership Embodiment work, you’re most likely someone who struggles with chronic pain or stress...or carries tension from huddling over a computer in a high-stress work environment...or reaches for peak performance as a leader, musician, athlete, equestrian, or dancer but finds your own body dynamics under pressure getting in your way.

I’m Olivia Cheever, and I teach these methods of somatic/movement awareness in order to help people learn to lead the lives they want. That can mean hitting a high note you’ve never been able to sing before, or standing up from a chair without your knees hurting, or being able to notice your body's immediate reaction to pressure and/or stress so you can do something about it before it takes over and overwhelms you!

It’s not a one-time fix I’m talking about, like feeling better when you get off a massage table but not knowing why, or how to keep from tensing up again. The message I want you to get is that change is possible, and you can be in charge of it.

"You can't change a system by fighting with it. You have to bring forth something else which makes it obsolete."
—Buckminster Fuller

News from Vermont–More on Heart of Compassion Elders Gathering

What an amazing Heart of Compassion 31st Elders Gathering we all had July 24-26, 2015 at Sunray Peace Village in Vermont!

Our hearfelt thanks to all who attended and all who contributed in person or online.

This was truly a multicultural celebration with over 250 participants from many nations coming together at the fire in the sacred Arbor during the three days to pray, share and study ways that we can contribute to planetary transformation and healing for the environment—with many enjoying our beautiful campground.

Our beautiful ancient healing ceremony was seen all the way to China!

His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche and Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo—in fulfillment of the prophesies—engaged with scientists from Harvard and MIT in important dialog about global warming and what can be done to sustain our planet at this critical time.

Thanks to all of you who contributed to make this such a success—both in person and through our online Indigogo site. You can still contribute before we close it down if you wish!
