feldenkrais® and interpersonal neurobiology becoming a mindful

 POST TRAINING ADDRESSED TO FELDENKRAIS® PRACTITIONERS FELDENKRAIS® AND INTERPERSONAL NEUROBIOLOGY BECOMING A MINDFUL PRACTITIONER This post-­‐training will be preceded by two meetings held by Donna Ray in Milan: the conference “Interpersonal Neurobiology and Somatic Education in the Practice of Psychotherapy: A foundation for Psychotherapy and Somatic Practices”, which will take place at the Psychotherapy School of Transactional Analysis of Milan; the seminar “Interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), self-­‐awareness of oneanother in the mindsight practice and the Feldenkrais® method” addressed to a mixed group of therapists and Feldenkrais® teachers. Common topics of these two meetings are Interpersonal Neurobiology, the Mindful Process, and The Body-­‐Mind Relation. The post-­‐training, compared to the contents of these two previous meetings, offers a specific path for Feldenkrais® teachers who are seeking to go deeply into the above-­‐
mentioned topics and want to apply them in their Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) and Functional Integration® (FI) practice. Working in a small group will allow those present to have more chances to improve their knowledge and create enriching interactions with the other participants. The intimate contact with nature, the conviviality and the beauty of the location will facilitate your learning process in a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere: a study holiday in the heart of the Langa Astigiana (UNESCO World heritage), surrounded by the green hills of Asti, vineyards, woods, and medieval castles. “The science of Interpersonal Neurobiology applied to Awareness Through Movement® and Functional Integration® helps us to become clear about what we are doing as Feldenkrais® Practitioners. Feldenkrais’s statement “know what you are doing so you can do what you want” will be addressed in this course. Attention is the elixir of neuro-­‐plasticity. We will spend the days experimenting with relationship, movement, understanding the nervous system and seeing how all of these sub-­‐systems work together shaping and creating new patterns of behavior in ourselves and others. By sensitizing ourselves we become able to detect the subtleties of functional movement, emotion and communication simultaneously. Applying this information to your ATM® and FI® practice will benefit you and your students. It will increase your ability to relate to others within our Feldenkrais frame and to effectively direct your attention and your students attention to maximize change. We will all learn and benefit personally and professionally by attending this course.” Donna Ray INFORMATION WHERE IT IS AND HOW TO GET THERE Feldenkrais Center Movimento! of Gabriella Icardi is located in Cassinasco (AT) on Rio Milani 161, a mountain community and protected area, in the heart of the region Langhe Piemontesi (UNESCO World Heritage).
