Enjoy a day revitalizing both your mind and body, using the practices of Buddhist Insight meditation and the Feldenkrais Method®, the brilliant sensory-motor approach to reeducating the nervous system and developing self-awareness.
Throughout the day we will alternate periods of meditation with guided Feldenkrais® movement sequences, so that the techniques support each other to promote presence and ease. Ample time will be allotted for discussion, as well as attention to individual difficulties. Poetry and good humor will be interspersed through the day.
Some of the work will be done on the floor, so please bring a yoga mat and blanket to use if you wish. The workshop is appropriate for both experienced and beginning students of either meditation or The Feldenkrais Method®.
