Embodied Life Zoom Retreat "Embodiment and Awareness : Entering the Heart of the Matter"


Dear Friends,

Immerse yourself in the practices of this unique work developed by Russell and Linda Delman, which brings together meditation, conscious movement and compassionate listening/speaking. Russell and Linda have significant past connections with Australia, having spent 12 summers teaching in the Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth Feldenkrais® Professional Trainings as trainers.

Russell's study of Zen meditation, Focusing, and Feldenkrais and Linda's background in Feldenkrais, Sacred Dance, prayer, and Spacial Dynamics™, plus 47 years of marriage, all together strongly influence their understanding of human potential and human challenges. They both recognize the transformative capacity of Awareness and its role in the evolution of consciousness.

This retreat will be of great benefit to those interested in profound embodied contemplative practices, as well as Feldenkrais teachers seeking to expand the domain of their work. In addition, those with a dedicated spiritual path will find these practices non-ideological, practical and deepening.

The Embodied Life™ is an approach to human transformation based on the integration of meditation, Feldenkrais® movement and self-inquiry. All practices are focused on being fully present in authentic, warm-hearted and curious ways. The Embodied Life™ School is dedicated to the realization of love, wisdom and freedom as the evolutionary direction for humanity.

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. In recent years, Russell's close friendship with Eugene Gendlin ("Focusing") has strongly influenced his work. Other powerful influences include Non-Violent Communication and his work with Mother Theresa in India. Russell offers Seminars, Retreats and a three year mentorship program the The Embodied Life™ School.

Linda Evans Delman, author and editor of The Essential Movements Book, will be the lead teacher for this event. Her 30 years of guiding others in Feldenkrais Lessons and 20 years of Sacred Dance, 10 years of Spacial Dynamics and decades of Counseling and Awareness practices, have come together to support the Embodied Life School and its' students. Her great hope is that each person who seeks to share their gifts with her, will be met with a deep listening, a warm heart, and her commitment to help each person find their authentic way.
