Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.
By changing our habits of movement, we awaken the body; by changing our habits of thinking, we awaken the mind. We can then join in the dance of existence with more freedom and ease. This daylong combines mindfulness meditation with sessions of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons, the brilliant sensory-motor approach to re-educating the neuromuscular system. Meditation will alternate with guided Feldenkrais movement lessons, allowing the techniques to support each other and enhance mind-body connection and well-being. There will be time for discussion.
The workshop is appropriate for beginning and experienced students of either mindfulness meditation or The Feldenkrais Method®
All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
