I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion and flexibility, and help all of us feel more comfortable in our bodies.
Andrew Weil, MD, www.drweil.com



Learning to be more fully PRESENT for life, in our personal and professional relationships, as well as in ourselves, is the key to fulfillment, meaningfulness and joy. The Feldenkrais Method and Awareness through Movement® in particular, point us in this direction. Growing new neural networks for responding freshly to life rather than using familiar patterns and reacting habitually is the essence of true freedom!

Russell Delman, a Feldenkrais Teacher for more than 40 years has developed a holistic approach to awareness and freedom called The Embodied Life™, that integrates movement, meditation and self-inquiry in seamless ways. He teaches “Embodied Meditation” based on his almost 50 years of personal Zen practice. In this approach we learn to be with our inner voices from a unique vantage point, rather than controlling the mind through concentration, we learn to befriend and gently de-energize unhelpful thought patterns.

In addition to the Feldenkrais Method, two other practices of somatic inquiry, have had an important influence on Russell, ‘Focusing’, developed by University of Chicago psychologist, Eugene Gendlin, and ‘Non-Violent Communication’, developed by Marshall Rosenberg. Unwinding the unhelpful ways we carry our personal history in our bodies allows us to feel truly more aligned with ourselves and the external world. By uncovering the essentials of communication, we can “seek to understand before being understood” and thereby create the context for authentic, effective connection. This seminar is open to Feldenkrais Practitioners, other health professionals and the general public.

Russell Delman began his study of Zen meditation in 1970 and graduated from Moshe Feldenkrais’ first North American professional training in 1977. Since becoming a Feldenkrais Trainer in 1984, he has taught in more than 50 international programs. Russell views with deep gratitude, how his personal relationships with Dr. Feldenkrais and Eugene Gendlin, have influenced his learning and teaching. He teaches The Embodied Life throughout the world. For more information about Russell, go to: www.russelldelman.com

Teacher: Russel Delman (Guest Faculty)

Russell Delman began his study of body/mind perspectives and human potential in 1969 as an undergraduate student in psychology. His life long commitment toward awareness and freedom began consciously at this time along with his practice of Zen meditation.

Through workshops at The Esalen Institute (1971), living at the Gestalt Institute of Canada (1972), travels in the jungles of South America (1973), being trained as a yoga teacher (1974) and studying Gestalt therapy with Dr Robert Hall (1975-1978), he deepened his self-knowledge. His training and deep personal relationship with Moshe Feldenkrais began in 1975, during the first professional training program offered in the U.S.

In 1984, Russell became one of the first people in the world authorized to lead Feldenkrais® Professional training programs. Since that time he has taught in more than 40 of these programs internationally and directed/designed 10. Russell has helped in the training of more than 2500 Feldenkrais teachers. In addition, he maintains a private practice at his home in northern California and teaches public workshops throughout the world.
