Intelligent Feet – Elegant Action

 

Workshop: Based on the Feldenkrais Method® Awareness Through Movement®
Saturday, October 20 2018 10:00am to 5:30pm

By refining sensory awareness during guided movement explorations, combined with imagery practices to enhance the accuracy of your self-image, you will discover a graceful quality in your actions, accompanied by a more direct, clear and fulfilling perception of yourself.

Your feet carry your whole self, they are your base. As you learn to use them beautifully, and as you clarify your feet’s relationship to your legs, knees, hip joints and pelvis, you will find increasing comfort, you improve your balance and coordination, and you may experience yourself both more grounded as well as pleasantly light.

These gentle and attentive verbally guided practices follow sophisticated neurological principles for optimal learning; they are effective and interesting. You will find yourself surprised in how they positively affect your well-being from the tip of your toes to the top of your head.

This workshop is suitable for all levels.

Movement lessons offered involve the whole body, and will help anyone in many surprising ways and beyond the highlighted topic.

Improve Jaw & Neck Functioning
Release TMJ, Find Emotional Balance & Inner Quiet

Workshop: Based on the Feldenkrais Method®
Saturday, October 27 2018 10:00am to 5:30pm

Whether you find yourself grinding your teeth at night, or whether you only once in a while notice a tightness in your jaw during challenging moments of life – for most of us, difficult emotions or stress result in chronic tension of the jaw musculature. Gentle yet precise movement explorations, with an emphasis on sensory self-awareness, not only result in a more functional and effective use of self and in bodily well-being and relaxation, but can also free us from emotionally stuck places.

Just as for example fear manifests itself in the body in the form of increased flexor-activation, discovering how to release these often chronic muscular holding patterns can free us from a constant inner background atmosphere of fear that may have become a life-long habit.

Whether your goal is more physical comfort and relaxation, an improved quality of action, or emotional and mental clarity, these practices of movement awareness will lead you in the right direction.

Forming habits is one of the most essential keys in life-long learning, and very necessary for survival, in other words tremendously valuable. As life keeps on changing many of our habits become outdated, limiting and painful. Unless we take a conscious decision to actively explore ourselves in order to make those outdated elusive habits visible to ourselves and in order to find ways to replace them with fresh possibilities – appropriate to  the right now – we remain stuck in what was ingrained in us over a long period of time.

Join this exciting journey in discovering more about yourself, of becoming your own authority and living your potential, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Movement lessons offered involve the whole body, and will help anyone in many surprising ways and beyond the highlighted topic.

Learn to Speak & Listen from the Heart

Workshop: Based on the Focusing Method by Gene Gendlin
Sunday, October 21 2018 noon to 6:30pm

In the Focusing Process the Focuser becomes deeply present to the happenings in the body; to sensations, qualities, the inner atmosphere, and all else that arises out of the inner space; images, memories, gestures…
Occasionally the Focuser expresses what is happening, and both, Focuser and listener hold the space in a friendly, accepting and compassionate attitude toward whatever is arising.

As you learn to be a deeply listening, safe and steady presence to the Focuser, supporting him or her to be with whatever shows itself, you will find this to be the most powerful catalyst for acceptance and change.
Gradually you also become able to offer this heart-felt presence to all of your own inner confusions and pain, and thereby learn one of the most powerful self-help tools.

This workshop for all levels.
