We are very excited to welcome Russell and Linda Delman back to the Bay Area for a special two-day workshop. Most meditation traditions focus on breath awareness as a key practice. From ancient yoga teachings to modern physiological research, the power of breathing practices to change one’s physical and emotional states is well known and well-researched. In this seminar, we will explore reliable methods that can be easily learned, taught and employed in daily life.
Spatial Awareness is an often missing or undervalued component in somatic teachings. To sense space around and within the body can vividly influence one’s inner state. Understanding how to shift awareness into the outer environment can often mitigate even intense physical pain. To paraphrase Moshe Feldenkrais, “… the human body and the environment are a functional unity.” In this workshop you will learn how to combine mindfulness, embodiment and a directed spatial awareness.
This special seminar is designed for people who either work professionally or are serious students of mindfulness and human potential. In addition to sharing these unique practices devoted to self-transformation, we will be offering guidance for applying these teachings in one’s role as a healer and teacher.
Russell Delman is deeply indebted to his more than 50 years of Zen meditation, movement awareness, and the study of somatic psychology for his learning. Personally trained by Moshe Feldenkrais from 1975-1978, he has helped train more than 2500 Feldenkrais practitioners worldwide in 55 professional training programs. His teaching is a deep integration of Zen-based Meditation, Feldenkrais Movement, and Embodied Inquiry, which includes various awareness practices devoted to deep listening to self and others.
