Welcome to the Thinking Body Institute!
Our mission is to promote understanding of the approach to somatic movement education that was created by Mabel Elsworth Todd, interpreted by her protégés, and developed by their students. Please visit the five areas below to learn more about the website resources.
ONLINE STORE offers materials for purchase published by TBI Media, including reprints of the original texts written by Mabel Todd, books exploring the development of her approach, and audio materials. ►
HISTORY OF THIS SITE
The Thinking Body Institute website is the outgrowth of www.ideokinesis.com. That website was launched in 2005 but then retired several years later when the platform became incompatible with mobile devices. In 2016, the materials from the 2005 website were relocated to the current Thinking Body Institute Education page. That date also marked the beginning of the acquisition and organization of many additional resources that are now available in the Thinking Body Institute Archive. If you would like to revisit www.Ideokinesis.com, it remains accessible through the Wayback Machine Internet Archive. Click here to see the original site.
NOTICE TO USERS
Over the years, as the global reach of the TBI website has expanded, we have become increasingly concerned about the duplication of our materials and their subsequent reappearance in areas wholly removed from their proper context.
If you would like to utilize materials from our website for professional or educational purposes, please prepare a written description of your planning and submit it using our Contact Us form. We look forward to expediting your goals.
We welcome your interest in our website as a “digital reference room” devoted to Mabel Todd’s unique educational approach. Please explore its resources freely and often, but remember that without our permission, TBI website materials cannot be “checked out.”
