What Happens in an In-Town Feldenkrais® Retreat?

The Autumn In-Town Feldenkrais Retreat offers three days of gentle movement, awareness practice, self-care and restoration; a clean, quiet, comfortable space; an experienced teacher … and you don’t even have to travel to enjoy it!

Each day of the In-Town Feldenkrais Retreat will include three Awareness Through Movement ® lessons. The lessons will vary from quiet breath work to larger, more challenging (and fun!) movements. During breaks you can have tea and snacks in the center’s comfortable kitchen, or walk through Dharma Gate’s beautiful garden.

The Autumn Retreat, October 25-27, 1-5 pm

Our autumn Feldenkrais retreat will focus on the movements of infancy when, while you were learning to sit, stand and walk, you were developing your “core sense of self.” We’ll visit delicious movement patterns, including rolling, reaching, folding and lengthening. As you develop awareness of yourself while moving through these important developmental patterns, you will better organize our limbs through your “core” (center), simultaneously improving our movement efficiency AND clarifying your self-image. Many students report feeling simultaneously more grounded and lighter after these Feldenkrais lessons.

Why Come to a Retreat?

Come for some solitary time, or share introspective time with new and familiar friends. The manna we’ll all share is Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement, and the process of self-discovery it provides.

“Learning . . . is not the training of willpower but the acquisition of the skill to inhibit parasitic action and the ability to direct clear motivations as a result of self-knowledge.” Moshe Feldenkrais, The Potent Self.
