World Fellowship Retreat – More Than Meets the Eye!

Event Details

June 29-July 1, 2018

Quick info:

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.

Frederick Kiesler's Vision Machine

Frederick Kiesler’s Vision Machine: that which meets the eye must also meet the full complexity of a person’s being before it takes on meaning.

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!

About the retreat

This retreat is modeled on the process used in professional Feldenkrais Practitioner training. Whitton PondWe 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.
