"An idea must be a pure image completely stripped or void of affect before it can reach the unconscious..." -- Dr Moshe Feldenkrais. "Reading Avi Shoshani's book... is a unique experience -- the experience of a journey into man's spiritual world. This world is complex and complicated, but always attractive and interesting. Avi Shoshani's knowledge is extensive, amazingly profound, without stifling academics. One cannot but be impressed by the intellectual work invested in the writing of this book. The exciting encounter between the worlds of psychology and education lends a special quality and is intellectually challenging. The author successfully provides a new perspective while carefully maintaining the laws of science in the realm of the soul. Recommended to everyone who loves to know, think and feel." -- Dr G Katz, Lecturer in Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem. "...Shoshani confronts a challenging topic. For this confrontation, he enlists, on one hand, his rich experience in mentoring students in various art disciplines and, on the other hand, his accumulated knowledge of neuro-physiology, psychology, philosophy, and education. Dr Shoshani's preparation of the student is not a training technique. His every word is charged with profound educational meaning. The student learns more than the different implementations, he learns about himself as performer, according to the path that the author has outlined for him. This work offers thinking challenges to the interested reader and inspiration and guidance to anyone involved in performance education." -- Professor Zvi Lam, former Head of the School of Education, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem.
