Tour of Wisdom of the Body

What is the Wisdom of the Body?

It is a System of Physical Movements.
It is not only a system of movement it – is an approach – an attitude toward the body – which encourages mindfulness and listening to what the body itself has to say.

Why

Because the human being at his time in history is at a critical juncture.
The choice is to become more robot like, more mechanical or …
more human. This is even more true with children and more urgent.

 

What Happens

The base of the brain is re-booted or re-set. I teach the movements to re-set or re-activate the primary instincts or primary brain-heart-gut centers. The experience of this is “getting back into your skin”. Or grounding yourself back into your body. Rediscovering your body.

 

What Are The Results

So far I have taught Wisdom of the Body for about seven years. And it has split into specialisations and special branches annotated to different needs. Without fail I can say each person and each group has found it helpful and effective to whatever their needs were and are. I am teaching at present in about 6 countries using the Wisdom of the Body as the axis of my teaching and it is indeed getting traction but I am fairly slow at spreading it as I want to maintain a certain level of quality.

  3. “as a younger man had held the squat record in Ireland at 1400 pounds”

    The world (not just Ireland) squat record in 2017 is 1,260 pounds. And that’s with equipment. Without, it’s under 1,000 pounds. How do you explain this?

    1. the squat was on the back holding up a draft horse on platform….should be a photo on the site…will go back and check…

      1. That’s a leg press, not a squat, there’s a difference. I can leg press 700 pounds but I can’t squat 300. People stronger than me can obviously better these numbers, but there’s still a difference. You misrepresent a lot. Bobby Q. Smith, far from being against weight lifting took Draeger’s “Iron Pill” and had weights in his home. He wrote about some of his teachers being against weight lifting so you may have gotten the story mixed up.

        1. agreed if you consider “squat” is a position of the body or a technique with steel. Babies squat. But not with weights..but I see what you are saying….a leg press uses the same position as a squat…still you must admit 14-1600 pounds is considerable. Who is Bobby Q. Smith? well I can say he was against me weight lifting…

    2. have attached photos to article on Tim Geoghegan and you can see the set up or can send you photos..

      ap

    3. yes I say “squat” referring to his position…in the U.S. we would say “Leg Press”…in these presses Tim was on his back and the horse was put on a ramp above him for the squat/press…pictures are on the article about Tim Geoghegan which is on the website..

  4. “education” to work with machines. That is a theme of the books by John Taylor Gatto and others for one of the not so covert purposes of government schools. It’s a system now beyond obsolete if it ever even was appropriate. Gatto is worth reading. Richard Mitchell of Less Than Words Can Say is also good. I believe that his 14 volume newsletter “The Underground Grammarian” is online.

    1. I agreement with you Tom—Gatto has nailed it on the head with education…good to hear you…also good to hear about Richard Mitchell…thank you!

  5. So inspiring to read your life story and the astonishing amount of knowledge/experience you are bringing to the world. Looking forward to your next visit to the cold north.
