May 19, 2013: Greg’s guest this weekend is Joan Wulfsohn and she is fascinating and informative. She was born in South Africa, had her children abducted by her own husband, was a featured ballerina, worked with Carlos Castaneda and has written her autobiography entitled, Stalking Carlos Castaneda. I strongly urge you to listen this Sat. 11-Midnight or check out the podcast, it will definitely be an enthralling journey.
Joan Wulfsohn, a student of Carlos Castaneda, was a soloist in the National Ballet of South Africa and has taught dance all over the world. In 1972 she underwent a double mastectomy and her soon-to-be-ex husband abducted their 3 children, spiriting them away to a foreign country. Joan felt she should have died yet she did NOT! In her book, Stalking Carlos Castaneda she chronicles her journey by way of lessons learned from the colorful people she met and worked with. This is the story of how one woman learned to live a magical life filled with wonder and transcendence. Today on InTouch Interviews I have the pleasure of welcoming Joan to the program. And you are encouraged to listen and be fascinated with her story as well as the bodywork technique she developed known as Cellular Recall Therapy to help others access a spiritual path through their bodies.
There was a tree in the orchard, larger than the others; no blossoms adorned it. It bore no fruit. It towered above the surrounding arboreal splendor, whose froth of pink and white promise shivered in the breeze; frivolous springtime bridesmaids surrounded the aging groom in whose grey arms she sat. Sturdy branches spiraled around a scarred trunk, some so low they touched the ground; low enough for fairly small children and one pregnant woman to climb. She sat high enough in the branches to be safely hidden, for who in their right mind would look upwards for a pregnant woman? She perched, immobile. Only her hair stirred. The soft air, alive with singing insects, buzzing wasps and the perfume of a Cote de Azur afternoon dried the moisture on her face and between her legs.
She leaned her back against the trunk and rested one hand on her huge belly.
Hidden, hidden. She longed to stay invisible forever, never to be found by the two visiting mothers, the three older children, the au pair (missing for two days already), and the husband, who only stopped lusting after the au pair when he got up close enough to observe that she was not attractive. (“She’s not even pretty,” he complained, impervious as usual, to any lack of discretion or sensitivity.) She wanted to sit there until the hoped-for son slid out from between her legs, red, healthy, and above all, male. Continued…
The class offers both dancers and non-dancers a gentle non-invasive exploration of body-mind techniques that expand range of movement and flexibility, improve posture and relieve chronic pain.
Whether the student is a dancer or a beginner the work will develop a long, flexible musculature.
Compulsive holding patterns created by injury, faulty training and past trauma can be freed from auto-pilot mode, making way for re-education and greater freedom of movement. Students will work at their own pace.
The class is designed to accommodate all levels of expertise, from beginner to professional.
The class includes exercises from the Zena Rommett and Kniaseff floor-barres, the Moshe Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement classes and mind-body techniques exploring movement via the muscular, skeletal and energetic systems.
The Zena Rommett Floor-Barre Technique® is a gentle and highly effective method for correcting and refining body alignment, building muscular strength and length, strengthening joints and increasing vitality and artistic expression.
Also widely recognized is a technique developed by Russian dancer Boris Kniaseff in the 1950s.
His barre au sol, has been carried on by dancers and teachers, Jacqueline Fynneart, Zizi Jeanmaire, Roland Petit, and Stéphane Dalle. According to Jacqueline Fynneart in an interview published at Danza Ballet, the technique is meant to be added to a traditional class (rather than as a replacement) and was “developed by combining Graham style floor exercises with classical form).
The Feldenkrais “Awareness Through Movement” combines teaching through description and observation rather than imperative and command. Awareness Through Movement® classes are nondirective, nonjudgmental, and exploratory.
Here is a mode of non-directive learning that brings movement to the surface and allows it to shine through a self-reflective mirror. Nowhere is there a model for learning that is so centered on the self-perceptions of the student.
Joan Wulfsohn has taught dance and healing techniques in eleven countries. Her engagements include the Centre International de Danse Rosella Hightower in Cannes; Teatro National de Barcelona; The Nice Conservatoire de Musique et la Danse; the Universities of Nice and Nanterre (Paris); the Lee Strasberg Institute in Los Angeles and the Mind Body Spirit Festival in Sydney.
The woman had a new maid. Despite having been born at the opposite end of the social spectrum, being servant, not mistress, Miss Sarie Julie had some things in common with her namesake, Mr. August Strindberg’s tragic heroine. She did not have the vote; her social status was dictated by birth, she had little or no responsibility for her fate, and her boyfriend was crude, worthless and controlling. While he did not send her to her suicide, he did cause her to go (occasionally) to the VD clinic for painful injections. He also required her to extract her entire row of upper teeth, which marred her generous smile, but enhanced the fulfillment of his less than generous sexual demands. With the insertion of a few words, Mr. Strindberg’s preface to his play could well describe this Miss Julie. Viz;”She is the victim of false belief-namely that a (Colored)woman-this stunted form of human being compared to (White) man, the lord of creation, the creator of civilization-is equal to man or might become so.”
Also, in a letter to the poet Verner von Heidenstam; Mr. Strindberg elaborates; “PS. (Colored) Woman, being small and foolish and therefore evil, should be suppressed like barbarians and thieves. She is useful only as an ovary and a womb….” In this case while Miss (Sarie)Julie did, on occasion thieve a minor trinket here and there—she always returned it ruefully when her employer, the woman, asked for it back-she was historically deemed useful only as a cleaner of White Madams’ toilets and caretaker of their children.
