A Conversation with Russell Delman

In this episode we speak with Russell Delman, founder of the Embodied Life School and Feldenkrais Method (R) trainer. In our conversation we explore Russell’s reflections on what embodiment means and why it matters in the modern world. We talk about our tendencies to reify life and how being in living relationship with our bodies, minds and world changes everything. We explore the difference between concept and direct experience and how useful it is to return to lived experience in many contexts, from physical pain to political situations.
