Embodied Life Retreat

Hannemo, Sweden (Hannemo)

Ever-Present Gratitude: Uncovering Our Natural Joy with Russell and Linda Delman

As we become more aware of the great social and planetary challenges that surround us, we can become heavy hearted about our collective future. Our personal struggles can also lead to a sense of heaviness. On the other hand, trying to avoid the challenges/darker aspects of life often leads to a sense of disconnection and superficiality.

How can we honor the challenges of life yet celebrate the great gifts that are also, present? Is it possible that Gratitude can be an ever-present and authentic doorway? After many years of offering retreats focused on Gratitude in the U.S., this is our first in Scandinavia.

This retreat will employ the traditional Embodied Life practices of Feldenkrais® movements and Standing Gestures, Walking and Sitting Meditation and Guided Inquiries, based in Focusing, to connect authentically and invite experiences of "Ever-present Gratitude".

Now, "Ever-Present" might see like a bit too much. We need to be honest- sometimes we might just hate our life. Still, ordinary people like us can discover that gratitude is actually never far away. Good news - there are specific practices that can reveal this truth!

We will offer movement lessons that encourage a sense of lightness and ease in our bodies as we do experiential practices to connect us more deeply to the gifts in our lives. The very special summer LIGHT of Sweden will inspire our study so that we can bring these light forces into the inner and outer winters of our lives.

Please join us for a deep, exploration of the natural joy that can emerge on the path of awareness when connected to gratitude.

Embodied Life™ seminars include: Guided Meditation, FeldenkraisĀ® movement lessons, Empowering vertical movement practices, interactive practices &group dialogues
