Yochanan Rywerant thought a basic training in 90 days. In his opinion 450 effective hours over a time span of 3 years was enough to acquire the basic skill to set up a practice and teach both ATM and FI. He had an overall planning, and a daily planning, that he adjusted according to the process of the day and what happened in class. Flexible. He was fluent in all what he had synthesized and conceptualized both in ATM and in FI. He did not teach body parts; he was concerned with the image of action and did not give ATM’s name.
He sometimes used the morning to prepare a sequence to be handled in the afternoon. Do not read that an ATM was transformed to a FI. In his system of thought this was not plausible.
He did not teach function per se, instead he taught the very elements of function.
Like an alphabet. If you know the letters, you can write literature, both of love and of hate. And read and understand meaning. The very same letters.
He taught the elements, the strategies and the tactics. He taught the importance of a line of consequence in a lesson to get acceptance and create process, in ATM as well in FI.
He was teaching and meta teaching in an integrated whole, all the time adjusting to both individuals and the group. Often explaining in detail what he was doing and thinking while demonstrating a FI. But not all the time. If the student at the table needed him to be quiet, he was, of course.
He taught one ATM a day, in Israel sometimes two. He began the day with ATM. He wanted his students to be alert and concentrated in the afternoon. All 90 days ATM, FI demonstrations, after lunch he did supervise FI practice where he was attending most couples for personal instructions. Often a clarification for everybody if needed.
Alon Talmi also taught one ATM a day.
