Welcome to the home page for Russell and Linda Delman and The Embodied Life School™. We offer seminars, retreats, training programs and consultation dedicated to human transformation through the unfolding of awareness at all levels: physical, mental, relational and spiritual. Russell and Linda guide individuals, groups and businesses internationally.

Russell's dedication to the study of awareness and human potential began 1969. The main influences on his teaching are almost fifty years of Zen meditation, close relationship and training with both Moshe Feldenkrais and Eugene Gendlin, deep study of somatic psychology and his rich family life. (see biography)

Programs called The Embodied Life™ which integrate Zen-based Meditation, the teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais, Focusing, Communication Practices and Guided Inquiry are offered throughout the world. Freedom from self-limiting habits/beliefs through awakening to our human potential is the intention. Some of these programs are offered as day/week-end workshops, others as residential retreats. Russell's study of communication, human performance and conflict resolution have led to programs for businesses. CD's and DVD's are available for home study.



Linda Evans Delman has been an international consultant and educator in the fields of Psychology, Conscious Movement, and Spirituality for over 30 years. She trained directly with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. She has been deeply influenced by Spacial™Dynamics, Eurythmy, Meditation, Prayer and Mother Nature. She joined the faculty of The Embodied Life School in 2015.

Russell Delman began to study Zen meditation and somatic psychology in 1970 as undergraduate student in psychology. His training and personal relationship with Moshe Feldenkrais began in 1975, and he has since helped train more than 2500 Feldenkrais teachers all over the world. Russell's close friendship with Eugene Gendlin ("Focusing") has strongly influenced his work. Other powerful influences include Non-Violent Communication and the experience with Linda of working with Mother Theresa in India.

Living in Awareness, Moving Toward Freedom

From Russell:

"We are living in a powerful historical moment with both vast potential for life to blossom and great challenges. As more people develop the capacity for authentic, holistic awareness, there is a spontaneous movement toward caring for Life. The Embodied Life School is one of many small groups of people throughout our planet dedicated to the realization of Love, Wisdom and Freedom as the evolutionary direction for humanity."

"Russell is a true teacher and healer."
(Ram Das- Dr Richard Alpert)

"I am a Feldenkrais Graduate and new to the Embodied Life work. Linda was the Educational Director of my training and now teaches with Russell in my Embodied Life Mentorship program. For me it feels so whole to have both a man and a woman's voice in the room, as well as their different styles of teaching and different ways of "knowing" wisdom. I am very grateful."
(Cynthia Rogers, USA, Feldenkrais Teacher)
