Last September, we started a five-day GRAD ZOOM program (five, one-day meetings, five hours each), with about fifty of your colleagues. We have been going much deeper into various aspects of the work and the results have been extremely satisfying.

NEW: We are creating a second, five-week group for those who missed the first one. We will meet five Saturdays, March - July. If you cannot attend a week, the recordings will aid you in making up the information and experiences.

To give you a more concrete idea, our current curriculum is (subject to change):

Week 1 - Embodied Meditation - Deepening your practice in community is a great gift. We unpack in detail the essence of our approach to meditation, uncover what is unique about it and how to guide others.

Week 2 - Felt-Sensing - This great discovery by Gene Gendlin is an often misunderstood doorway to inner transformation. It is the essence of Focusing yet much more also. Learning to bring this skill into every day life has transformative effects.

Week 3 - Embodied Movement Practices - These are the many short, 5 - 10 minute, practices that easily and reliably give people an experience of the most important aspects of embodiment. Offering these to others is the fastest most reliable way of understanding The Embodied Life teachings.

Week 4 - Resource Growing - This is our powerful practice for using one's own experience to cultivate life-giving states. Many people find that these are provide the basis or blueprint for developing new actions.

Week 5 - Spatial Awareness - Learning how sensing space within the body AND tuning into the external space is a key for growing awareness and inner freedom. This capacity influences everything from meditation to relationships in the world.

Costs, Dates, Time:

The entire program is $500 or E500 (payment plan available if needed). No one will be refused for inability to pay.

COMMENTS from participants in the current program:

"A wonderful opportunity to immerse myself in ongoing learning with Russell and Linda as they continue to develop and refine their teachings and practices, always presenting them freshly in the moment. One gift has been engaging with the learning directly in my home environment and letting it take root there. It has been of great value for my personal journey and in my teaching, especially in contemplative spirituality. Highly recommended!"
Jennifer Guild, Australia
Background in dance and as a physiotherapist, certified Feldenkrais practitioner, qualified spiritual director, and Embodied LifeTM workshops.

"I am so very grateful to have been a part of the Zoom ELMP graduate program over the recent months of 'stay-at-home' solitude. With plenty of time to go inward alone, it surprised me to discover how important it became to deepen the 'listening/speaking' practice with others. The commitment we graduates share of being present, 'lean of words', open-hearted, dropping her/his-story to invite what is fresh....well, we met with greater intimacy and generosity than ever."
Barbara Forbes, New York, USA
Teacher of the Feldenkrais Method®, Embodied Life® practices, movement and dance.

"Each of the Graduate Days has been a great opportunity to deepen and strengthen my inner growth. I take great support from working together with Russell and Linda and the community. New insights have been growing within me and I always leave with a strong sense of inspiration and curiosity for my own teaching. I really enjoy the exchange with other students in the break out groups. The sharing of our experiences and the practicing with each other in a safe and supportive environment opens for me a great field for learning."
Jutta Wakley Neuninger, Germany, Feldenkrais Practitioner, EL Guide

"This next level of integrating EL teachings feels precise and valuable. I like the multi-layered experiential approach as it combines with a more theoretical, meta framework for working with others. In the break-out rooms, I immediately sense mutual trust and receptivity among participants from other countries whom I'm meeting for the first time. While I don'' love the ZOOM format, Russell and Linda are making great use of this platform during these times when we must remain distant from hugging one another."
Sharon Bard, Santa Rosa, USA, Ph.D. in Holistic Health Sciences and Educational Psychology

"The ZOOM program has been a welcome opportunity to connect with colleagues around the world, to have real-time conversations with them and to practice leading each other in meditation, movement and embodied inquiry. I didn't want to wait for post-pandemic times to continue my ELMP studies in person, as the world has such great need of Embodied Life practices and facilitators in this very moment. I'm grateful I've been able to keep moving forward with this life-giving work while so many aspects of "normal" life are on hold."
MaryBeth Jarvis Clark, Salt Lake City, USA Feldenkrais Practitioner, River Writing Facilitator
