The last weekend in October was a memorable time in Oaks, Pennsylvania. Quite unexpectedly, and very early for that part of the country, a significant snowstorm occurred!! It took a lot of folks by surprise! The other unexpected event that occurred was a presentation at the Mind/Body/Spirit Expo, conducted by Joe Weldon, Master Synergist and Co-Director of the Rubenfeld Training Institute. About 25 people, most of whom had never heard of Rubenfeld Synergy, were surprised and amazed by the gentle power of the work and the mind/bod/spirit awareness they experienced— the connection that is their natural birthright!!

Joe started the presentation by breaking the group into pairs and asking them to become aware of what they noticed in their bodies when they received a compliment. He then went on to show them in a very tangible but gentle way, the felt sense of how “in order to relax, we need to be lax and to be long. Using a classic Rubenfeld Synergy body-mind exercise called Moving Like a Bamboo Tree, Joe gently showed participants how they could expand their visual awareness and ease of movement in the world. This was followed by a demonstration of another classic RSM technique called a Shoulder Release. During this demonstration, Joe touched the lives of all participants, as he showed them the weight/impact of some emotional material on their shoulders and how their bodies responded to support given to the shoulder when it was ‘listened to” by the gentle touch of another.

The Rubenfeld Synergy booth at the Expo was very busy all weekend and it was great to talk to so many people about the work. It was particularly heartwarming to see the outpouring of interest after Joe’s presentation as people came to express their thanks and to inquire about the work and the training. On that special day in October, I was more proud than ever to be a practitioner of this important work.

So, don’t wait for the next snowstorm to find out about the Rubenfeld Synergy Method!! Give yourself the gift of this awe-inspiring work and experience your natural birthright!, Go to and find a practitioner in your area today. You won’t be disappointed!! And then, after you have made your first appointment, go give someone a compliment and tell them about the Rubenfeld Synergy Method too!! Happy Holidays!! Lori R.
