Embodied Life Seminar

Vienna, Austria

Fear to Love: Wholehearted Living in Challenging Times

with Russell and Linda Delman

For many of us these are challenging times. In addition to our individual challenges, we are concerned about the planet and the many societal conflicts that abound. It takes great courage to show up for the joys and sorrows of everyday life. Learning to be wholeheartedly present to life as-it-is is the key to growing the world we want for ourselves, our loved ones the next generations.

When our hearts are constricted in fear, our natural caring, our joy and capacity for love are hindered. With guidance and practice, we all can learn to be more fully present for this precious life.

The Embodied Life teachings focus on three doorways for growing this wholehearted presence. Simply said, we need the capacity to: 1) befriend our own thoughts, 2) warmly welcome our feelings/emotions and 3) find a grounded, centered ease in our own bodies. Embodiment is a profound and reliable doorway to the present moment.

Our practices:

Embodied meditation is based in the Zen practice of "just sitting". We learn to experience the moment just as-it-is. Chairs are available.

Embodied Inquiry includes a variety of awareness experiments based in the Focusing method of Eugene Gendlin.

Embodied movement is based in the lessons of Moshe Feldenkrais. These are very effective ways of transforming our movement patterns and growing bodily awareness. In addition, we have developed powerful vertical movements that directly impart the essentials of embodiment.

These days will be primarily experiential with: Guided meditations, Movement lessons, Awareness processes and Conversations. We expect that you will experience yourself in delightful and perhaps new ways!

Wholeheartedly and Warm-heartedly living into our one precious life is the gift we can give to ourselves and to each other. We invite you to join us in this journey.


Dear Colleagues,

Our work extends the teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais in ways completely harmonious with his larger intention and vision.

We were very close to Moshe both in San Francisco and in Israel. During the last years of his life he came to know "The Embodied Life" teachings and was very positive about this integration.

The practices in this seminar will be useful for you in your work if you are offering classes and/or private sessions. Thank you for the work you are doing in the world.

We hope to see you...Russell and Linda Delman
