Russell Delman: The Embodied Life (Portland)

Finding a Safe Harbor in the Storm: Cultivating Grounded Presence, Warm-Heartedness and Joy in Everyday Life

Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to return to Portland and to share "The Embodied Life™" with you. When deeply connected to our inner/outer world and we embody a grounded presence, we become a place of solace - a safe harbor in the storm for ourselves and for others.  We also experience the simple joy of being alive!

These are challenging times. Inner and outer voices are often clamoring to be heard. When we can remember our connectedness to all “others”, as well as to Truth, Beauty and Goodness, we become a healing balm for personal and societal conflict. In The Embodied Life School, we work with practical and reliable practices that help us cultivate this deep connectedness in everyday life. We grow the neural networks of inner safety, grounded presence, joy and natural empathy.

In this seminar, we will learn:
- to be the best friend of all our inner voices,
- to meet divisiveness and conflict with authentic confidence and care
- to experience the shower of beauty and goodness that surrounds us.

Through the transformative practices of Embodied Meditation, deep listening based in Focusing®, plus the powerful movement lessons of Moshe Feldenkrais called "Awareness Through Movement®", we will deeply, and often joyfully, experience our potential to become places of healing, connectedness and solace.

At the end of my professional training with Moshe Feldenkrais, he said "if you teach people to stand on their own feet and to love, you will be wanted anywhere in the world". The good news is that these are learnable states of consciousness.

I hope you will join me for an inspiring week-end of learning together.

Here's what Russell has to say: 

Dear Friends,
I enthusiastically anticipate my return to Portland. With a core group of consistent people and the fresh energy of new folks, we always seem to explore essential human questions with both depth and lightness.

This year our focus is: "The Challenges and Opportunities of Awakening Humanity". When I use the term Awakening Humanity, I am suggesting that there are groups of people around the world, often living in certain communities, who are on a journey of uncovering their human potential. I suspect that Portland is such a community, and we can ask, what does living in a more awakened way really look like, for ordinary people like you and me?

By this term, I also mean that we are each having influences on the world around us through which our consciousness and actions can help to awaken others, or not, in both close personal relationships and in the wider world. I am curious to explore this as well.

What an extraordinary time to be alive! 
I hope you will join us for this weekend.
