Embodied Life Retreat "Embodiment and Beyond: Deepening into the Ground of Being"

Ytterjärna, Sweden  

Dear Friends,

"Let the Beauty that you Love Be what you do"


Being grounded in our bodies AND on the planet are essential steps toward living in harmony.

"Beyond Embodiment" implies an intimacy with nature, spirit, and personal relationships. Also, connecting to the wisdom of the earth and the cosmos.

When our thinking, feeling, moving, sensing and the greater world are in harmony, we deepen into the Ground of Being. This profound grounded-ness invites the experience of interconnectivity, in fact inseparability, between self and world.

Through Feldenkrais Movement and other Embodied Practices, we will experience the ever-present support of the earth. Through fascinating and effective breathing experiments, we will learn to shift into a more regulated state of equilibrium.

Embodied Meditation will take us through the body to "beyond embodiment", where we can sense who we are before our thoughts, self-images, stories, and inner dialogue.

Embodied Inquiry will help us cultivate and access the neural networks of already known, life-giving states. We learn how to interact with our own thoughts, feelings and memories in ways that promote healing and joy.

Please join us for a deep, playful, expansive and restorative journey into the Ground of Being.

Linda and Russell Delman

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, is the author and editor of The Essential Movements Book. 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 it's 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.
