Embodied Life Public Retreat

Penzberg, Germany  (ZIST)

Bi-annual retreat at ZIST in Germany with Russell and Linda Delman

Join Russell and Linda for their bi-annual retreat in ZIST, Germany. These retreats are a favorite amongst students! This is a Public Retreat, so all are invited to attend.

The Embodied Life School™ is an integrated teaching developed by Russell Delman that is based in the Zen practice of "Just Sitting" (Shikantaza) and more than fifty years of studies in human potential.

This work stands on three legs: 1) Embodied Meditation - sitting and walking meditation, 2) Embodied Movement - Feldenkrais Method and original standing movements, 3) Embodied Inquiry- which includes various awareness practices based in Focusing, Non-Violent Communication and deep listening.

The Embodied Life teachings are a path of Awareness and Loving-Kindness, which are seen as the most essential qualities for human beings. Moving from habitual patterns of fear to a natural openness to and celebration of life - Fear to Love as our basic operating principle - is the direction of this study.

This potent retreat is of interest to both those experienced in these practices as well as those who are completely new. Each retreat is unique, changed by the presence of the people in the room. In this way, each person has their most important questions addressed. Most people find the retreats both joyful, with much humor, as well as deeply moving and even transformative.

Date:   February 3rd to February 6th (Thursday to Sunday)
Time: 6:00pm (Thurs) - 12:00pm (Sun)
Location: ZIST
