By happenstance, I reconnected with an old college friend I haven’t seen in years. Back in the day we used to philosophize about life and the meaning of it all – hey, it’s what we did in the 70s. Seems those early chats worked their magic on both of us sending us into parallel universes that now seem to be converging.
For my part, I discovered the Feldenkrais Method and other manners of inquiry, drawn by the potency of paying attention. Bill did the same but from an organizational perspective. Beginning with the work of management guru Dr. Deming, Bill and his group have made thinking about thinking a focus of inquiry itself. They are bringing their ideas into the corporate world and guiding organizations to recognize what it is they do and how they can shift to be more effective, effortless and integrated. (Sound familiar??)
The more we talk the more I’m taken by the similarities and relevance of our work. To see what Awareness Through Movement looks like from an organizational perspective, check out http://www.in2in.org
