Embodied Life Retreat

San Rafael, California (Santa Sabina Center)

Embodied Meditation/Movement Retreat (Mostly Silent)

With Russell and Linda Delman

In all Embodied Life retreats we work with three main forms: sitting and walking meditation, Feldenkrais® movement lessons and Guided Inquires. The meditation is based on the Zen practice of "just siting", the movement lessons are gentle, brilliant explorations of "Awareness Through Movement"®, based on the work of Moshe Feldenkrais and Guided Inquiry which includes a variety of awareness practices based in the focusing work of Eugene Gendlin.

This is the first Embodied Life Retreat that will be silent outside of class times and will place a stronger emphasis on Embodied Meditation and Movement practices. Participants are encouraged to eliminate or limit internet and phone activity. We will experience the joy of practicing together without usual conversation and other interactions.

"Human transformation requires the movement from fear to love as our basic operating principle. Presence is the door, Embodiment is the key"
