The Feldenkrais Awareness Summit: Resiliency, Freedom, and Evolution

No Comments

We see every day that technology can be used for ill both unconsciously and consciously. But technology can also be used for good.

This is definitely the latter.

The Feldenkrais Awareness Summit: Resiliency, Freedom, and Evolution—sponsored by Future Life Now OnLine and running from May 1st to May 8th—is the perfect opportunity for practitioners and students to come together and learn what’s going on in the world of Somatics. The event will be hosted by Cynthia Allen and co-hosted by Lavinia Plonka

Listen in live with me or log on to watch the recordings of past presentations to grow and transform as over 25 leading teachers and visionaries help us return to our bodies and emotions to untangle those habits that get in the way of our resiliency, freedom, and evolution.

I will be presenting Tuesday, May 8, at 8:00 am. Hope you can make it!

Plus, at a yet undisclosed time during the summit, there will be a single Awareness through Movement lesson that will be shared in 17 different languages from 17 practitioners around the world.
