("Neuromalleability" perhaps?  It would be great to decrease my use of plastic.)  
The term neuroplasticity describes the flexibility of our nervous system.  It is an idea that Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais was keen on already decades before it was confirmed by the scientific community.  As I have previously mentioned, our nervous system is constantly changing, and so we are constantly being updated.  We have the biological possibility to learn and alter our habits, and that is due to changes in our neural wiring.  We can learn new ways of doing things by deepening our manner in which we sense and listen to ourselves.
Our nervous system is good - state-of-the-art, in fact.  It works day and night for us, and it is always looking for solutions to our needs.  Our thinking can be rigid, but our nervous systems are not necessarily so!  The Feldenkrais Method is a powerful way of developing and expanding the capacity of our nervous system... the capacity of ourselves.

It makes me wonder if imagination is in connection with neuroplasticity?

This is Hector Picard:

How differentiated can you be in order to use your feet like hands?  Or maybe we just haven't realized the full potential of our feet...

Looking back, I see that I have been frustrated for most of my dance career.  "Fake it until you make it" seems to accurately describe how I managed.  I was dissatisfied with my dancing, always dreaming of what embodying freedom would feel like.  There was a nagging voice inside that reminded me that I didn't really know what I was doing, which stirred up so much doubt. 

Two minor hernias in my cervical vertebrae led me to a rehabilitation program.  However, feeling that it was only holding my broken self together, I sought other methods and gratefully came across the Feldenkrais Method!!
