View Full Version : Reading lists from Coach Sonnon, Dr. Cobb & CSTers

I just picked up "Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma" by Peter A. Levine, after seeing it mentioned in one of Coach Sonnon's recent posts.
Since this is a well-read and eclectic group, I'd be interested to know what others read for CST/Body-Flow related education, other than Coach Sonnon's books, which I take as a given.
My Thanksgiving reading includes Circus Techniques: Juggling, Equilibristics & Vaulting by Hovey Burgess (out-of-print, unfortunately). Next on the list is a book/video on Capoeira, since some of the movements seem complementary to Body Flow.

These simply reflect my personal interests. Not definitive by any stretch of the imagination -
By Feldenkrais -
The Case of Nora
The Elusive Obvious
Body and Mature Behavior - A Study of Anxiety, Sex, Gravitation and Learning
"The Feldenkrais Method: Teaching by Handling"
Job's Body: A Handbook for Bodywork
The Use of the Self
Original Writings of F.M. Alexander: Constructive Conscious
The Chair - another Alexander Technique book, but I'll be damned if I've ever been able to find it. Has to do with mechanics of sitting.
Motor Learning - Concepts and Applications
SuperTraining - I *cannot* find a copy of this book ;-(
Pretty much anything by Ruthy Alon. I went thru her "Bones For Life" training - pretty groovy. She has a video that's in the exact same spirit as bodyflow IMHO
Pretty much any breakdancing video. I just got one - some kind of international championships - and it's frikkin amazing.
Any introductionary seminar in the Trager Technique. Worth their weight in gold.
Tons more, but we start getting into therapeutic applications and such.
Books are great. Direct experience is better ;-) Spend a few months exploring Alexander, Feldenkrais, Trager, breakdancing, capoiera, aikido, bjj, judo, bodywork (hakomi, hellerwork, zero point balancing, craniosacral).....well, you can see, it's a never endding list of things to play with ;-)

I fogot to add these -
Charlotte Joko Beck
If I'm ever stuck on a desert island, these two are coming with me. Incredible books dealing with the mental aspect of flow.
Athletes' Guide to Mental Training
I've not seen any of his nwer books, but IMHO this is a golden oldie.
