Event Description:

The One and Only Fourth Annual Mid-Summer’s Dream Intensive: Awareness Through Movement® Intensive

~ Guaranteed to meet or exceed your minimum yearly requirement of Awareness!

with Dennis Leri & Carol Kress

This 5-day intensive is designed to give participants a feel for the depth and breadth of the practice of self-inquiry known as Awareness Through Movement. We will present 4 lessons a day - 2 before lunch and 2 after lunch. Some lessons will require slow, small movements while other lessons will necessitate large, fast actions.  Some lessons will give you access to positive behavioral change via a somatic re-imagining of your modes and ways of acting.  Other lessons will allow you to observe and change your imagined limitations by first acting differently and in novel ways. Feldenkrais’s understanding of awareness and his unique means to achieve it will challenge your self-limiting habits of knowing, thinking, sensing and feeling.  In other words, the intensive will be provocative and fun.  Come join us!
