Abraham Mansbach is a scholar in philosophy and a Feldenkrais practitioner.

Abraham is a professor emeritus on philosophy at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel). He specializes in the relationship between identity, selfhood, and the body, and, more specifically, in the ways in which language and practices shape persons and their identities.

His books and scholarly articles are phenomenological studies of human experiences, such as being in the world and using tools, artistic creation, and practices that are exercised in the public sphere such as truth-telling (whistleblowing). Most recently, he has published on intersections of the Feldenkrais Method with the cultural domain as representative of a wider “somatic turn” of Western culture.

As an accreditated Feldenkrais Practitioner, Abraham has taught and directed workshops at venues in Europe (Barcelona and Berlin) and Mexico. In his private practice in Israel, he works with groups and in person-to-person lessons with people interested in self-healing and self-change.

In his forthcoming book, The Feldenkrais Method: Power of Self-Transformation, Abraham threads together the themes of selfhood, identity, and the body, with a somatic practice.

Examining over sixty lessons of the Feldenkrais Method, the book presents the principles governing self-transformation, their scientific basis, and how they are activated and staged in the method. The book shows how practicing the Feldenkrais Method makes self-healing and self-change possible.
