Hey all. I've started a blog about my experiences and thoughts with RSM. Oddly enough, the post I made today is about choral singing.

Please check it out, comment, and tell people if you like it!

Hello, all,

I recently entered my internship year as a student of the Rubenfeld Synergy Method. What this means is that I can now see clients for fee, and I am charging a special internship rate of $65 per session. I will also offer packages of 5 or 10 sessions at a further reduced rate for an up-front payment.

The Rubenfeld Synergy Method is a dynamic healing system for the body, mind, emotions and spirit. The Method has been known to help people with problems ranging from chronic pain to PTSD, and is based in the core belief that freedom of fluid movement - both in our bodies and in our lives - is our birthright.

Sessions take place on a massage table, fully clothed, and involve both gentle touch and talk.

In order to become a client, we must not know each other well. A good rule of thumb is if I have friended you on Livejournal, or if you regularly see me at parties, we are too close. Of course, with our intertwined community being what it is, it is close to impossible to expect that we will not intersect at certain points. But if we are already on hugging terms, I cannot be your Synergist. If there is a conflict, I can refer you to my friend and colleague, [ profile] mattlistener.

If you are reading and I haven't friended you, however, please feel free to contact me if you are interested. Even better, please feel free to pass this message along to your own friendslists and any communities to which you belong that you feel might have an interest; it would be greatly helpful.

I finally got around to watching this TED talk on vulnerability, which, it turns out, is the core of a fully lived life.

You should watch it too.

Hi, all,

The introductory workshop on Rubenfeld Synergy Method is happening this Friday evening! I know, I know, it's a Friday evening in the middle of summer. But please - come out and get exposed to this amazing healing technique.

If you're on the fence, or planning to go but just haven't signed up yet, now is the time - you can save $5 off the price ($20 rather than $25 at the door). We'd like to have a sense of how many people are actually going to attend, so please, contact Matt at and let him know you're planning to come.

Looking forward to it!

I hope to see a lot of you there!

[ profile] mattlistener, my esteemed colleague, and I have started a new LJ user called [ profile] boston_synergy. It's a journal for both of us to use to post news and announcements about our work in Rubenfeld Synergy Method in the Boston area.

If you've been interested in the work I've talked a little about in this journal or to you in person, go friend it!

The Rubenfeld Synergy folks have known for a long time that our bodies take what we say literally. We "dig in our heels" and "put our foot down," or we "bend over backwards." We feel "down" or "uptight." We "can't stand it!" We're "hip to it." We may feel "beaten down" or like we "shoulder" too many burdens, but we're told to keep a "stiff upper lip" and "keep our chins up." But we need "elbow room," "breathing space," and for someone to "have our back" if we're going to get "back on our feet." When we can "stand tall" in our spines we know that we can "be-long."

And now, The NY Times presents a survey of studies showing that this stuff is all true.
