Move From Force To Power
In this special free class, you will be guided through archetypal postures and movements that evoke different levels of consciousness.
In the tumult of the last year, I’ve been inspired to do this practice often and share it with my students. It feels especially apropos as we inaugurate a new year and a new era based on more empathy, compassion, and kindness.

What is BodyLearning?
Life Energy Fitness classes are open to students of any age and fitness level who want a safe, easy, fun and effective approach to cultivate, mobilize and strengthen vital power. Complete beginners are welcome. No prior experience in Alexander Technique, qigong or tai chi is required; and advanced practitioners and teachers of these modalities will discover new dimensions of simplicity and insight to enliven their practice and teaching.
Combining ancient wisdom with contemporary neuroscience, these classes bring together the best of East and West so you can experience more energy, joy and happiness in your daily life. Drawing on more than 40 years study of the Alexander Technique, aikido, qigong, tai chi, and meditation, Michael teaches what he practices and practices what he teaches.
"Everything connects to everything else."
- Leonardo da Vinci
When a stone is tossed into a still pond the water ripples out in circles. This was one of Leonardo da Vinci’s favorite themes for drawing and contemplation. Leonardo observed that “everything connects to everything else.” In Power vs. Force, Dr. David Hawkins writes that “to become more conscious is the greatest gift anyone can give to the world; moreover, in a ripple effect the gift comes back to its source.”
Hawkins presents a scale with a progression from lesser states of consciousness (the realm of Force) to more evolved states (the realm of Power). The realm of Force is the province of shame, guilt, apathy, dependency, fear, desire (craving), anger, and pride. The realm of Power includes the following levels (with the quantitative measure assigned by Hawkins):
- Courage (200). We face and embrace the truth in our lives.
- Neutrality (250). The beginning of the capacity for nonjudgmental awareness.
- Willingness (310). Every experience is embraced as an opportunity for growth and learning.
- Acceptance (350). We accept full responsibility for our lives.
- Reason (400). Deliberate, clear systems thinking
- Love (500). Forgiveness, compassion, and unconditional love.
- Joy (540). As William Wordsworth expressed it, "With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things."
- Peace (600). This is “the peace that passes all understanding.”
- Enlightenment (700–1000). Timeless, non-dual, abiding in permanent grace.
Let these movements uplift your consciousness.
