Tamar recently found this photo of her Dad from the 1960's. She was shocked to see the confluence of their views. Even way back then, her father is quoted: "The patients who do best, says Dr. Rogoff, are the ones who know the most about their disease...they learn from the staff and from each other." At the top corner of the article are a few dangling words from a sentence that is cut away: "...respect

Merri Standing On Chair

I have been taking Tamar's movement/dance/laboratory class for about ten years. I stopped going in 2011 when I developed a neurological disorder called truncal dystonia. I was barely able to walk and experienced a pulling feeling as if a cumberbund was being tightened around my waist. This feeling was severe and made me bend at the middle as if I was going to pick something up off the floor. I started seeing Tamar privately and

Robyn Lambird at the 2014 Junior National Wheelchair Basketball Championships

An update from our Australian Posse leader Robyn Lambird: Robyn Lambird (center) at the 2014 Junior National Wheelchair Basketball Championships Since first seeing the trailer for Enter the Faun I have been immensely intrigued by the techniques used by Tamar and Gregg.

Jessy Yates and Tamar Rogoff at the March 2015 NYC Cerebral Posse Meeting

I’m wondering about the role of empathy in healing. Is it true that scientists/doctors fear empathy because it may obscure the diagnosis/treatment process? Emotions might come in and we all know how unwieldy emotions can be—so it follows that getting to know your patient intimately might be a bad thing because you then could get confused on the scientific path. For me the empathy (I admit to being the empathy queen) sends me to the
