If you’ve ever been to a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement class, you’ve probably experienced the wonderful, and at times profound, changes that can take place through this method in your body and in your sense of self.
Now imagine what could happen over the course of three whole days, as you go deeper and deeper into your senses, and flesh out the map of your self-image.
This year’s theme: More than Meets the Eye
Unlocking the habitual compulsion of eye movements can be an essential step in the discovery of freedom from a host of habits of moving and being: deep habits of focus, effort, tension, and intention are all evident in the organization of our eyes, whether in the function of vision or in coordination with movement.
In this workshop, you will discover how to improve the movement of your eyes, differentiating and re-integrating them with the movement of the rest of your body; change the actual function of seeing to improve depth perception and focus; understand how the organization of the eyes relates to effort and tension patterns and discover your dominant eye.Get curious about yourself and the way you move through the world, and learn to see both the world and yourself in a new light!
This retreat is modeled on the process used in professional Feldenkrais Practitioner training. We will do at least three Awareness Through Movement lessons each day, allowing time for both rest and discussion between lessons to help you integrate what you have experienced. The program will take place in the morning and early afternoon, leaving you free to enjoy everything else that World Fellowship has to offer for the rest of the day.
Bring the whole family!

Lodging options vary from camping to comfy.
Delicious home-style meals feature fresh-baked bread and produce from World Fellowship’s on organic gardens. (Meat is also served.) The cooks are responsive to individual dietary needs, and there are also modest kitchens where you can make your own food.
|There’s also a beautiful lake with swimming and boating, lots of hiking nearby (stay a few days, and enjoy hiking in your tuned-up post-retreat body!), and lots of fascinating programming going on all the time.
