Melting Our Hearts into Gratitude

Sunday, Nov. 1st, 10:30-1:30 PM Hawaii time -a life interactive online workshop

 

How can we find gratitude in these times of chaos, uncertainty, and loss? How can we cultivate a supple and grateful heart as we move in this season of gratitude? You are invited to this “All Saints Day” workshop to explore the places within that are not grateful and express them into a heart capable of not only holding gratitude but also joy and abundance.

Together we will embody and spread gratitude to our own self and to a world that is aching for it. Through the ancient arts of movement, sounding, drawing, and connecting with each other we celebrate our resilient hearts to reside in peace and gratitude.

Katharine Harts and Eva Geueke are both master teachers who have decades of training and experience in helping people around the world to transform their lives.

They are both committed to sacred embodiment and have chosen the path of transformation through mindful movement, somatic awareness, expressive arts, and ritual.

Their collaboration at this chaotic time in history is a powerful force for grounding and healing.

 

They invite you to begin with gratitude.

Aloha kakou,

Here are my upcoming workshops for the rest of this month. Please forward to anybody that you know could benefit from this work. Unwanted curves in the spine are a cause for many pains including sciatica or neck pain. These workshops also strengthen lungs and heart, which is very important in these days. 

I want to announce that my colleague Katharine Harts and me are teaching our first very special workshop together on Nov 1. She is a wonderful teacher and we are excited to put both of our wisdom and experience together to lead participants deep into gratitude. All workshops are online and life interacting!

Anti-Scoliosis and Healthy Lung Weekend Day 1: 

Thoracic Spine & 7th Cervical with Feldenkrais©

October 24 @ 1:30 – 4:30 pm (HST)

One session: $59  Two sessions: $79   Golden Circle Discount: 20%

Important for a healthy respiratory system – Enhance your lung health as you straighten your spine. Eva will be offering feedback to individuals during this interactive workshop.

Through the easy and gentle movements prescribed in the Feldenkrais Method©, we learn to recognize and eliminate many of the common habits that interfere with deep breathing and good spinal organization. This workshop will focus on the diaphragm and lungs, neck, 7th cervical vertebrae, and how to lengthen rounded backs or scoliosis from the inside out.

We know that the diaphragm works, day in and day out, to move our lungs. Did you know the diaphragm also has an intimate relationship with the heart and the neck? The 7the cervical – with many nerves going down the arms and the spine – is the key vertebrae in this connection. Dr. Feldenkrais once said: “We would not have neck problems if our lungs could glide freely.”

The diaphragm is a large muscle in the center of our body that is poorly understood and neglected. When it does not move well, the diaphragm not only hampers oxygen intake but also pulls on our chest and neck.

Through mindful movement we will help the 7th cervical vertebrae to communicate with the diaphragm and lungs, freeing up the neck!

You’ll take 2 lessons with a water break in between. We plan to record the lesson and make it available to workshop attendees for a small fee.

 

Anti-Scoliosis and Healthy Lung Weekend Day 2: 

Spacious Chest, Heart & Spine with Feldenkrais / Wave Continuum- LIVE ONLINE, Interactive

October 25 @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm One session: $59  Two sessions: $79   Golden Circle Discount: 20%

The chest houses our vital organs, so it needs freedom and mobility for the health of our diaphragm, lungs and heart. In this workshop, your diaphragm and the musculature between the ribs will learn to work together: your ribcage frees up, your spine elongates and your lungs glide. Good breathing improves everything, as our oxygen is our primary source of energy, our lifeline – even before water and food. 

Get to know your biggest muscle, the diaphragm – your ‘motor’ in the center of your body – so well that you can move it with ease. This action also moves the heart, which is sitting right on top of the diaphragm and between the lungs. With extra movement and space, the heart can do its work properly. Surprisingly, moving the diaphragm and the ribcage well can also undo neck tension and immobility, as well as tightness between the shoulder blades!

To this Feldenkrais©/SmartMoves workshop Eva adds another modality, WaveContinuum, to recondition the shoulder girdle and arms, as well as enhancing chest-heart-lung mobility and health. WaveContinuum is a powerful somatic method that uses specific sound and breath techniques with a mindful wave motion to open and move tissues and fluids.

The Feldenkrais Method© and WaveContinuum form a smart union to dive deep into a conscious body journey that leaves you more elongated, mobile and oxygenated.

Effective, flexible breathing provides hundreds of benefits, including mental health benefits!

You’ll take a water break in between sections. We plan to record the lesson and make it available to workshop attendees for a small fee.
