Meditation, Deep Inquiry, and the Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais
June 16-18, 2017
Friday-Sunday, 2 nights
Plus 2 nights all-inclusive accommodations priced separately below.
Step into the fullness of your potential. All methods devoted to human potential emphasize the importance of awakening to the present moment. All that we long for—love, joy, peace, harmony, truth—require this fundamental capacity. Successful, inspiring leaders and skilled communicators radiate this quality of presence.
Not surprisingly, embodiment, being grounded in our bodies, is a reliable and skillful way to become present. In this workshop with world-renowned teacher Russell Delman, you will learn ancient and modern methods for directly and simply uncovering your natural capacity to be fully in the moment.
Put simply, this means:
The result is truly transformational. This weekend—through meditation, movement lessons, guided inquiry, and meaningful conversation—you will discover how to be at home in your body with a caring and curious presence around thoughts and feelings as they arise.
The meditation we will practice is a bare-bones approach to experiencing the present moment as it is. The movement lessons of Moshe Feldenkrais—perhaps the most neurologically sophisticated and effective way of transforming our motor patterns and self-image—will help you connect to the sensations of the body in interesting and fun ways.
You will leave more present and connected to inner joy, with practices for continuing to embody your best potential in life and work.
Russell Delman, the founder of The Embodied Life School, began his study of body-mind perspectives and human potential in 1969 and has since dedicated his life to the study of human transformation.
A Zen practitioner for more than 40 years, Russell has studied somatic psychology and is indebted in his work to his training and deep personal relationship with Moshe Feldenkrais. He became one of the first people authorized to lead Feldenkrais Professional training programs, helping to train more than 2,500 Feldenkrais teachers over the years.
With his longtime wife Linda, also a Feldenkrais trainer, he created the Feldenkrais-India Project, bringing the Feldenkrais method to India for the first time. In India, Russell and Linda worked at Mother Teresa’s mission in Calcutta and were blessed and influenced by numerous private meetings with her. Russell maintains a private practice in Northern California and teaches programs throughout the world.
Show up fully present for your life, by learning practices to help you become grounded in your body and able to ride the variability of your own thoughts and reactivity.
Develop the ability to be both stable and flexible in the business world, with greater capacity to flow with change, improve communication, and clearly define and reach your goals.
Experience true satisfaction and meaning in your life by being consciously alive, here and now, moment by moment.
