</p> <!-- /wp:shortcode --> <!-- wp:paragraph {"align":"center"} --> <p class="has-text-align-center">Pre-registration Required</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>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.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>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 has become my template on how to deal with our uncertain existence. It has been a daily and -even hourly- challenge.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>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.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph {"align":"right"} --> <p class="has-text-align-right">-- Mary Spire</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Don’t miss out on this opportunity to connect with fellow teachers, share your experiences and to recalibrate to better deal with the challenges we face now.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:ugb/columns {"uniqueClass":"ugb-87de6bf"} --> <div id="" class="wp-block-ugb-columns ugb-columns ugb-87de6bf ugb-columns--design-plain ugb-columns--columns-2 ugb-main-block"> <div class="ugb-inner-block"> <div class="ugb-block-content"> <div class="ugb-columns__item ugb-87de6bf-content-wrapper"><!-- wp:ugb/column {"uniqueClass":"ugb-f282ebf"} --> <div id="" class="wp-block-ugb-column ugb-column ugb-f282ebf ugb-column--design-plain ugb-main-block"> <div class="ugb-inner-block"> <div class="ugb-block-content"> <div class="ugb-column__item ugb-f282ebf-column-wrapper"> <div class="ugb-column__content-wrapper"><!-- wp:paragraph --><strong>Mary Spire</strong> is an experienced teacher and trainer of the Feldenkrais Method ®. A Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, she has been actively teaching since graduating in 1987 from the Feldenkrais Foundation Training and, for the last 18 years, has served as a trainer and educational director in Feldenkrais® Professional Training Programs worldwide.
