Self-Discovery supports memory

Does one remember better through memorization techniques or insight?

The following study explores the above question, something Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc.  believed to be true years ago as he observed children developing their patterns of action.

He designed Awareness Through Movement lessons so you had to think your way through and discover new ‘insights’ to how you could move more efficiently/easier. He wanted everyone to experience that ‘ah-ha moment in discovery.   In individual or Functional Integration sessions, his idea was to offer just enough information through touch/awareness so the client’s brain made new connections.   Wayne Dyer called it ‘filling in the gaps’.
