"Cranio-Sacral What"!!!??? Love it!!!
I lent this book to a client who was coaxed back for another session after just talking about this book. She was so excited she signed on for 4 sessions. She said maybe I should give the book to every client. She loved that is was "a little book" that she could read simultaneously with Keith Richards' new bio.
PLAYWRIGHT/FACILITATOR James Nemec's little primer reminded me of a book by Peter Brook "The Empty Space", which I bought when I first became involved with the Gurdjeiff Work in 75'. Peter Brook I believe is now head of the Work in Europe and as my mind wanders back to those times, I remember going to BAM 3 days in a row to see Brook's production of the "Mahabharata", and thinking OMG!! How do they do this?! Anyway the last lines of Peter Brook's book about The Deadly Theatre, The Holy Theatre, The Rouge Theatre, and The Immediate Theatre are:
"In everyday life "if" is a fiction, in the theatre "if" is an experiment.
In everyday; life, "if" is an evasion, in the theatre "if" is the truth.
When we are persuaded to believe in this truth, then the theatre
and life are one.
This is a high aim. It sounds like hard work.
To play needs much work. But when we experience the work as
play, then it is not work any more.
A play is a play."
Just last week I rediscovered this book and put it out on top of a pile of little books I wanted to reread. And now I know why I found it!
And so I quote James Nemec; "A hope was that this primer could provide a space of calm to relax within, breathe, and contemplate anew. The few butterflies of books were made available as a small contribution to show what is possible, and to demonstrate what you can do for yourself and your loved ones at comparatively little expense to you."
THANK YOU. Without these books by JAMES NEMEC, CS would not have such a beautiful voice to get the word out.
