What happens when Feldenkrais Method® meets Deep Listening® ?

Join Thomas Kampe (FM) and Jon Petter (DL) for an exploratory dive into the worlds of Feldenkrais Method and Deep Listening.
These three Sunday workshops are for anyone interested in movement, vocal practice, self-development & embodied creative practice. They offer us resources for greater creativity  & improved wellbeing through holistic communal vocal & movement experience.  During the workshops we aim to build a practical, reflective & co-creative space to make connections between the 2 practices and with each other, and use that connected space as a launch point for improvised play and exploration.
The days will work as standalone workshops, but we welcome you to come to all 3, to deepen  the experience of the meeting-points between the 2 practices.


Session Dates:

Sunday Jan 29th 2023
Sunday Feb 26th 2023
Sunday March 26th 2023
The day runs from 10:30am-1:00pm and 2:00pm-4:00pm
Join us for the full 3-session workshop series or drop in to one or more individual sessions of your choice.

What is Deep Listening?
Deep Listening® is a practice developed by US composer, humanist, activist, accordionist, technologist Pauline Oliveros and a large community of her Deep Listening colleagues – in particular Heloise Gold and IONE - over many years.
Deep Listening is exploring the relationships among any and all sounds whether natural, technological, intended or unintended, real, remembered, imaginary or dreamt.
Deep Listening is listening in as many ways as possible to all that can possibly be heard all of the time.
Deep Listening is improvisatory, creative, playful, healing, connecting. It is a serious application of attention that happens to involve lots of fun.
During a Deep Listening session we hold space for each other, creating the conditions for self and group care. A session involves breath and body-work; Listening or other Meditation; activities to promote connection; exploration of Oliveros’ Sonic Meditations and other text scores; sounding, singing, dancing and playing together in open or guided improvisations. For more information about Deep Listening®, please visit https://www.deeplistening.rpi.edu/

What is Feldenkrais Method?
The Feldenkrais Method® was developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984) as a gentle embodied educational process concerned with self-discovery, wellbeing and improved function. It uses movement, sensation & reflective experience as organic learning modes to support us in our ability to interact with the world in new ways with comfort, ease and curiosity. The Feldenkrais Method invites us to slow down, re-tune and listen to ourselves, and to playfully explore the world of our internal sensation. It supports our nervous system to form new pathways beyond our habitual capacities. The Feldenkrais Method® is taught in ‘Awareness Through Movement’® group lessons, guided through verbal instruction, and one-to-one touch-based ‘Functional Integration’® lessons.
