Awareness Through Moving and Stillness: Feldenkrais and Meditation

Katharine Kaufman and Kim Hansen

September 6–8, 2013

Tuition $170 + 2 nights

This weekend retreat offers a rare pairing of the Feldenkrais Method combined with sitting meditation. The Feldenkrais method works with gentle novel movements that stay within a range that is easy. Through this guided personal exploration we shine a light on multiple ways of doing any task. By playing with the actions of lying, sitting, standing and walking practices in new ways, we understand our natural elegance and direct unencumbered movement and stillness.

Open to all
