Embodied Life Graduate Program

San Rafael, California (Santa Sabina Center)

Week 2

With Russell and Linda Delman

We have heard from many of you over the years requesting a study group dedicated to graduates of the ELMP. We are now ready! We are excited to experience what happens as individuals and as a group when we are all starting from known and familiar language, attitudes and practices.

As you know, our basic six week ELMP is both an excellent introduction to the essential skills of Embodied Presence and too short for developing mastery in these practices.

Also, you have likely discovered that maintaining these practices on your own can be challenging. Many people are often amazed at the surprisingly potent value that comes from working together with a group of committed individuals. Even those of us who are more "solo-learners" usually find that there are important lessons that can only happen in a safe group setting. A community of learners or Sangha, seems to be an essential element to make profound leaps in our learning.

Even if you have not continued in your practices of meditation, Focusing or Feldenkrais, we are confident that the "group mind" will support you in connecting to your past learning.

We will start with dinner on a Tuesday nights and end at 11:00 (before lunch) on Sunday mornings. This will allow most to make their plane connections without leaving early.

Our curriculum will be guided by the needs of the group and the continued evolution of our teachings. We anticipate three main groups: 1) those active in the work who want support in presenting the work to others, 2) those who have been maintaining their practices and want to go deeper and 3) those who have not been maintaining the practices and feel drawn to return.

All groups will receive support for their intentions. Those who want to be guides for others will be encouraged to also do auxiliary work, make presentations and do some writing connected to their experiences.

Additional Opportunities

As each person brings unique gifts and understandings, we will create a variety of contexts to learn from each other.

Peer learning will be encouraged through opportunities to present teachings to each other as well as interactive conversation.

Deepening of Listening-Speaking will be supported through organized practices both during the course and between sessions.

ZOOM will be utilized to support learning between the meetings. The program will be recorded and these helpful resources made available.

We will invite Feldenkrais Practitioners, both those in the program and locals, to offer individual lessons at lunch time, at very reasonable prices.

Wishing you well on your journey...Russell and Linda
