We work inter-generationally for social and economic justice, environmental stewardship, and sound governance. Constance Washburn M.A., is an activist, educator, director and facilitator. She and Molly Young Brown, co-author of Coming Back to Life – Guide to the Work That Reconnects, have been leading retreats and workshops in Northern California since 2013.

14:00 [14:00] Feldenkrais Method - with Jackie Adkins
Feldenkrais Method Edinburgh Workshop Series - 2018 with Jackie Adkins Experiencing connectedness throughout our whole self can bring a greater sense of freedom, articulacy and groundedness to everyday life as well as to specialised activities such as yoga, sports, playing a musical instrument or horse riding. While each workshop takes a different area of the body as a starting point, throughout the lessons you are continually developing your ability to attend to a specific part in relationship to the whole. The series offers the possibility to explore the Feldenkrais Method in a more concentrated way - deepening your self awareness and expanding your options in movement and life. However, you can come to one, some or all of the workshops.
