Embodied Life Seminar

Vienna, Austria

The Embodied Life™ with Russell and Linda Delman

Cultivating Awareness through Meditation, Movement, Inquiry and the Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais.

Language: English (German translation partly possible)

All methods devoted to human potential emphasize the importance of awakening to the present moment. All that we long for - love, joy, peace, harmony, truth - require the capacity for PRESENCE. Simply said, we need the capacity to sit with our own thoughts, welcome our feelings/emotions and find comfort and ease in our own bodies.

The MEDITATION we will practice is a profound and simple approach to experiencing the present moment 'As It Is'- this is the basis for being at home in ourselves. Beyond ideology, it directly addresses the question: Can I be at ease within my own self-created mental stories and images? We will be meditating each day for periods of 15-20 minutes. Chairs are available and help is given to those who find sitting challenging. This work-shop will be of interest to both beginners and those experienced in these approaches.

The MOVEMENT LESSONS OF MOSHE FELDENKRAIS are perhaps the most neurologically sophisticated and effective ways of transforming our motor patterns and self-image; these lessons are also interesting and fun. Our physicality can be a great help in the process of awakening. Learning to sense our breathing, standing, sitting and other activities with greater clarity, while moving in easier, more satisfying ways, can help us to experience more joy and lightness.

GUIDED INQUIRY includes a variety of awareness practices based in the Focusing Method of Eugene Gendlin. Russell has been developing these experiments for more than 30 years. Learning to bring a warm, caring, curious presence to our feelings/emotions is truly transformative. We will explore in direct, interesting and transformative ways, two main themes: How to be with the challenges in our lives in ways that help them to move forward and growing our capacity for deep and spontaneous gratitude.
