BUSY BRAIN, STRESSED-OUT BODY
Tools for staying balanced, with Jane Burdick, Certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner, Sunday, June 3, 2018, 1-4 P.M., 222 St. John St., Suite 240, Portland, ME 04102. Cost $75.
It’s now well documented that our overly stressed minds are causing most of our bodily illnesses. Isn’t it worth it to consider intervening now? I mean, right now…not when we have some imaginary time later. Most of us think we’re handling stress all right, but often we’re the last to know. And it’s coming at us fast and furious these days, so how do we find a way to calm our bodies and return the nervous system to a peaceful level on a regular basis and…at the same time…invite the mind to relax? One system working what we’ve thought of as separate, the body and the mind.
In Feldenkrais® we use the body as our best entry to our minds. We sneak up on it and before we know it, it’s deeply curious about what’s going on in the present moment, in movement sequences designed to be pleasurable, interesting, and slow…unifying two systems back into one, like when we were kids.
Come and experience the good news of Feldenkrais®. Join me for an afternoon of practice. Go home with some real tools for your tension. You’ll get a routine that will be truly helpful in the years ahead. As the world goes askew, it is possible to not only stay balanced, but to share your sense of balance with others simply by being yourself…your true self…embodied. It’s powerful stuff.
