Miriam Mondlin describes how her stuttering ended through her study of the philosophy of Aesthetic Realism, an education taught in New York City.
Miriam Mondlin describes in an article titled, "How My Stuttering Ended," what she learned from the philosophy of Aesthetic Realism in classes with its founder, the great poet and educator, Eli Siegel. She learned that her stuttering had to do with how she saw the whole world, the way she was both for AND against it and other people. She learned that she, like every person, had a fight all the time between wanting to like the world, have honest respect for it and the desire for contempt, described by Eli Siegel as: "the addition to self through the lessening of something else." Understanding this battle in herself and how it interfered with her self-expression, enabled her stuttering to change--permanently. Aesthetic Realism sees stuttering as a manifestation of a large fight that one can have unconsciously with the world. When the fight is understood, the stuttering ends.
I think this is great good news!
