I am happy to annnounce that Assistant Trainer Olena Nitefor has contributed two more ATM to openATM.org: AY#60 “On the Stomach” and AY#341 “Simpler, On the Stomach and Back”. In Olena’s own words:
I teach five day advanced trainings which are dedicated fully to ATM. While each workshop has its own particular theme, I have an ongoing dedication to Moshe’s insistence that, “It will organize itself.” He does not suggest that we are learning to organize “it.” Quite a distinction to consider! From this comes my interest in how to guide the “I” so that the intelligence of “it” has time and space to emerge. Moshe in AY #478:
“Do it more easily at the points where it is difficult.Do not try to push more, but at the points where it is difficult, do it more easily, a gentler movement, more slowly. Then, slowly it will organize itself.”
Each of the ATMs below comes from the context of a different five day workshop. The way I teach, and the length, depends on the group on the floor, as well as the sequence of the particular ATM within the workshop. Some therefore, will not have a formal scan, some will have a long one. As a teacher, I am working on not starting every sentence with “so,” not to repeat “a little bit” quite so much. and how to not huff and puff into the mic. While I code the lessons as AY#, they are versions thereof.
The lessons can be downloaded at Olena’s ATM page. We hope you enjoy them and feel free to give feedback here.
