Mia Segal was Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais’ first observer, protégé and trusted collaborator in perpetuating his masterful work. Mia is joined by her daughter Leora Gaster in recounting moments from their close personal relationship and home life with Moshe. This has afforded them unique insight and perception into the spirit of Moshe's artful attitude and approach to improving human ability. Mia and Leora speak passionately of the importance of the work for teaching responsibility and autonomy to children, its ground in Judo principles and the art of gentleness. Mia, together with her daughter Leora, still loves actively teaching and sharing the system of questioning and refinement of learning evolved by her close association with Moshe Feldenkrais. Mia’s work over seven decades has enriched the lineage of already potent teaching and learning of practitioners today. Leora and Mia support how research is widening to encompass the interlacing of individual aspects of cutting-edge science as we contemplate how humanity fits with our environment. They conclude by highlighting the importance of research in confirming Moshe Feldenkrais’ work today.
