Graduate Movement Mentorship Retreat

Salzburg, Austria (Johannes Schloessl Pallottiner Retreat Center)

Times - begins lunch Friday at 12:00, retreat ends lunch Sunday at 12:00

"We must start quite far down at the bottom when we wish to tread an inner path, even as the Earth begins deep down when bringing forth new life. We will hang in mid-air throughout our life if we do not start deep within. Profound concentration, quiet and devotion are required for this." ~Emil Bock

A New step for Embodied Life Teachers and Students!

Guiding movement in an "Embodied Life" Way.

The Embodied Life School™ presents: A Movement Mentorship Retreat "Entering with Presence" in Salzburg, Austria ~ June 26, 27, & 28, 2020

An Intimate Gathering for ELMP Graduates

15 Student Places with 4 Teachers

In all the Embodied Life programs, we offer various approaches to movement: from short powerful movement experiments, to adapted Feldenkrais lessons, standing gestures and dynamic spatial experiments. Embodied Life teachers throughout the world have been asking for more guidance in how to present the movement practices. In this graduate retreat, we will focus on the most important movement experiments. Our goal is, like the opening quote from Emil Bock, to start deep down into the moment of being with the movement in a new kind of presencing.

These movements can be used in classes, seminars, and talks to give an immediate, potent experience of embodiment. This New program is designed to support graduates who would like to deepen their understanding of movement as a key to Embodied Movement, and to assist those who are teaching or want to begin sharing this work with others.

Imagine being in a small group of graduates who are preparing to go deeper with themselves and the work of understanding the living qualities of movement. There will be opportunities for sharing, and questions within the group. There will be readings sent out before we meet as preparations for our journey together.

This is an opportunity to expand your capacity to lead and understand movement in the Embodied Life presencing way. Join us for this pioneer adventure.

The Johannes Schloessl Pallottiner Retreat Center
