BREATH OF FEAR, BREATH OF LOVE

Which will it be, the BREATH OF FEAR (unconsciously held and tense), or the BREATH OF LOVE (relaxed, open, fluid and nourishing)?

Rumi tells us that the Breath of Fear always involves holding and resistance in the form of freezing and sore muscles. Unable to feel the holdings, shallow breathing turns into a strong habit unable to correct itself by a few long breaths.

By contrast, the Breath of Love is allowed to pass through the whole body, like a baby does it. Learning the Breath of Love melts even long-held stresses and tensions throughout the whole body and can always be returned to. And maybe, just maybe, it’s our breathing that causes us to worry, fear, doubt and feel unworthy. If that’s the case … there’s no time to lose!

Join me in an afternoon of learning the Breath of Love and taming the Breath of Fear.

THE SPINE: Remembering the Pathways Between the Neck & Low Back

A Transformational Workshop with Feldenkrais® Practitioners Jane Burdick and Marilyn Hardy

November 5, 1-5 p.m., Walpole, Maine

Neck pain? Shoulder pain? Low back pain?

The pathways from the brain down the spine reach everywhere and may well
be blocked by unconscious holding patterns due to sensory motor amnesia.
This “forgetting” can be reversed. Feldenkrais is like a living map that allows
us to sense, connect and heal the whole landscape of the body. It helps us
remember our original programming of coordination, balance, ease and
pleasure in a moving body.

Join us for an afternoon of exploring unusual movement sequences the
Feldenkrais way… slow, simple, enlivening and profound. Anyone can do this.
Everyone can benefit!

When: Saturday, November 5th, 1-5 p.m.
Where: Carol Zahner’s studio, 180 Clark’s Cove Road, Walpole, Maine
Cost: $75
