During this workshop we will explore gentle and precise movement using The Feldenkrais Method®. The movements are done with guided awareness to balance your eye muscles, along with softening the muscles of your neck and shoulders. The ease this creates can have far reaching effects throughout your whole system.
Many spiritual practices see the eyes as the window of the soul. Our eyes tend to work very hard for us each and every day, particularly with all electronic devices we now use. Let’s give them some much deserved attention, restoration and rejuvenation. We will explore practices that allow the eyes to soften and rest and revive and use our eyes in different ways. This can revive and rejuvenate our whole system and give us a real sense of freedom.
The Eyes have it focuses on softening your whole musculature and balancing your whole nervous system. Regaining balance in your nervous system can bring your physical body, emotional state, mental outlook and spirit into greater ease. Your state of ease is the territory that we will explore and develop during this workshop.
