As long as there has been sleep, humans have had difficulty sleeping from time to time. Mostly this is a passing thing but, when it becomes chronic, the quality of life diminishes rapidly. In these trying times more and more of us are having insomnia, or our already hampered sleep has become worse.

I am offering this workshop, to restore your ability to sleep soundly and restoratively. I look forward to meeting you.

Warmly,
Paris Kern

For those who have already taken the Friday / Saturday Sounder Sleep Sominar with Paris, this additional day and a half can count towards three days of the nine day teacher certification.

What is it? – The Sounder Sleep System® is a holistic insomnia solution inspired by the Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education as well as Qi Gong, Yoga, and meditation techniques. This system of gentle, sleep-inducing gestures, called mini-moves™, quickly lulls you into a state of blissful, restorative slumber. If you wake during the night, the mini-moves will get you back to sleep fast.

The Sounder Sleep System is based on the discovery that special physical movements can shift us from an alert, waking state to one of profound physical and mental repose. In that tranquil state, if you need sleep you will fall asleep.

The Teacher – Paris Kern, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Trainer® and Sounder Sleep System™ instructor, has been teaching groups and individuals for over 25 years.

The workshop will consist of gentle mini-moves, sleep hygiene information, handouts (pdf will be emailed to you) and a link to a recording of the workshop.

In this workshop, using iconic Feldenkrais lessons, Mary will share her experience and thinking on how to live fully and be present with ourselves and others during these strange times.

Come Join us for this Online Workshop!

We are living in turbulent and challenging times. It may even seem that we have no control over what’s happening in our lives and our environment- and that we are at the mercy of unsettling events, ambiguity, perceptions, ideas, and the dictates of others. However- we are able to find hope: that we are able to take care of ourselves and find ways to mitigate the stress and anxiety that have become the reality for many of us.

My own journey is ongoing and I wish to share my experiences with you. Acceptance of what IS was my first step. That took months of self-inquiry and looking clearly at my reality. Appreciation, gratitude, kindness towards myself and others, and compassion for all of us have become my template on how to deal with our uncertain existence. It has been a daily and -even hourly- challenge.

As Feldenkrais teachers especially, we are fortunate to have the greatest tool: awareness! and-learning. I am learning to notice and change my reaction to events and situations to which seemingly, I have no control. Then the question becomes – what can I do for myself and others. And- importantly- what tools do we have- as humans, and Feldenkrais teachers, to help ourselves and others?

We have the ability and the in-depth training – to feel, sense, think, and act. In this workshop, using iconic Feldenkrais lessons, I will share my experience and thinking on how to live fully and be present with ourselves and others during these strange times.

What Can We Learn from Esalen?

with Anastasi Siotas, Trainer Candidate

November 14 & 15, 2020, 10:00 am-2:00 pm PDT

Watch an interview with Anastasi Siotas about this online program.

EsalenNov2020

Registration opens globally October 20.

Registration priority is given to NW Region Members until October 20.

  • NW Region Members: $45
  • Trainees in any accredited Feldenkrais training program: $45 (proof of trainee status needed – send to feldenkraisnw@gmail.com):
  • FGNA members in other regions: $55
  • FGNA members in Canada: USA$41
  • Members of Feldenkrais Guilds in other countries, certified-only Feldenkrais practitioners, Anat Baniel Method & Mind Body Study practitioners: $65

Note: This program will not be recorded.

Given to 14 practitioners of various disciplines, the 1972 Esalen Institute Workshop was the first organized workshop Moshe Feldenkrais taught in the USA. The 45 Esalen lessons provided a powerful introduction to what we call the Feldenkrais Method®. Drawing on decades of experience working with the original Esalen audio recordings, Anastasi Siotas will guide us to ponder the question, What can we learn from and how can we use Moshe Feldenkrais’ first lessons taught in the USA to help us realize unavowed dreams of worldwide broadcast in this world of online teaching? Anastasi has many insights regarding the Esalen lessons, including differences between the audio recordings of what Moshe actually said and the Stransky notes. He will select particular lessons and provide insights for simplifying or breaking one of these “packed” lessons into two or more.

During this Covid-19 pandemic era the work of Feldenkrais practitioners® has shifted from face-to-face settings to a virtual world – another first. It was Moshe Feldenkrais’ dream that the body of work be televised globally as it was being taught; this now is happening. The Esalen lesson audio recordings can be purchased from the IFF website.
