Explorations in Feldenkrais® lessons & Breathing at the Dharma Centre of Canada 1267 Galway Road, Kinmount, Ontario

Friday, June 14 to Sunday, June 16, 2024
These classes aim to cultivate awareness, mindfulness, and physical ease by intertwining Breathing Meditation with Feldenkrais® movement explorations.

Meditation combined with Feldenkrais® lessons proves beneficial as it gradually unravels soreness, discomfort, and enduring structures of physical and emotional pain.

There will be guidance on merging meditation and the Feldenkrais® method of somatic education for individual practice.

Please wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a cushion(s), blanket(s), and food to nurture yourself during the day.

What is Dana? Teachers give the teachings of awakening (Dharma) freely so that anyone, no matter their financial means can attend classes. Each time one receives teachings, it is an opportunity to consciously practice generosity. Giving money and other means of support expresses gratitude and support to the teacher and helps to ensure that these teachings continue. Each person receiving Dharma teachings determines the kind and amount of Dāna according to one’s heart and one’s financial means. When deciding how much to offer, one should think about what these teachings mean to you and try to give accordingly. It is recommended that students make an offering of dāna at the beginning of a class or retreat to establish the intention to make the most of this opportunity for one’s own progression and for the benefit of all others.
