Description:
By changing our habits of movement and thinking, we can relax and awaken the body-mind. We can then join in the dance of existence with more freedom and ease.

This day retreat combines mindfulness meditation with Feldenkrais Movement lessons. Feldenkrais is the brilliant sensory-motor approach to re-educating the nervous system and developing awareness. Periods of meditation will alternate with guided Feldenkrais movement lessons, allowing the practices to promote mind-body connections, vitality and well-being. Ample time will be provided for discussion. This workshop is appropriate for experienced and beginning students of either mindfulness meditation or The Feldenkrais Method®.


Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals and K-12 educators, as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients. This program will provide health professionals with specific mindfulness and somatic practices that can help their clients reduce stress, feel greater physical ease and less pain, and help clients move more effectively. Continuing Education (CE) credit available. See below for attendance requirements and more information.

Learning Objectives for participating health care professionals-
At the end of the program you will better able to:

• Describe how increased coordination, flexibility, ease of posture and breathe reeducates the nervous system and develops self-awareness;
