Moving Body and Mind
A Collection of Writings and Exercises for Developing Kinesthetic Intelligence
by Samuel Avital
The BodySpeak™ Manual is a selection of writings, essays, poems, stories, teaching situations, and new exercises for the sole purpose of developing kinesthetic intelligence, and exploring the philosophy, theory, and the intention of the practice of the BodySpeak™ method of training.
"Move freely, but with full attention, as you make your way into the multi-layers of this marvelous book. Spend time with it, study the illustrations, read and re-read key phrases until they reveal their deeper message. Above all, do the exercises. Do them many times, alone or with others. And if you are lucky, you will one day find yourself, as I did, enjoying the fruits of Samuels teaching and perhaps planting a few seeds of your own." - From the forward by Mark Olsen
Samuel Avital was born in the town of Sefrou near the Atlas mountains in Morocco. In 1958, he moved to Paris to study with the masters of mime: Etienne Decroux, and Marcel Marceau. In 1971, he founded Le Centre du Silence Mime School in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to performing internationally, he also holds workshops on Mime and kinesthetic expression (BodySpeak™, teaches privately, and hosts a bi-weekly forum of creative expression called Café-Salon Philosophique.)
