FIFTEEN FANTASTIC FELDY LESSONS
We had an inspired lunch date at a Thai restaurant as we planned it out, each of us writing down our favorite fifteen lessons between bites of green curry. We knew we’d have some common choices, but wow – we kept being inspired by one another’s choices, saying, “Oooooh, we need that one too!”
As beloved poet, Mary Oliver wisely wrote,
"You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves."
Join us in this course to dive into that rich animal-body learning. Sign up anytime and delight in exploring these potent, gentle movement lessons anytime you like. $150 is the cost for the series and the lessons are yours to keep forever.
In addition to being a gifted and beloved poet, Mary Oliver has been one of my most profound teachers in the Art of Attention. When I first started reading her work long ago, I remember thinking, “We live in the same world, but wow, I want to have what she’s having!”
Apprenticing myself to her poetry as invitations to inhabit the world with wonder, curiosity, and a presence readiness to be awed has been and continues to be life-changing.
Let’s spend a month together relishing the teachings in Mary’s words, inviting us to pay profound attention and grow our embodied intimacy with the gift of being alive in this wondrous, fragile world.
With Mary as our guide and with me as your co-pilot, let’s spend a month refining the art of paying attention.
While this class was originally recorded in May of 2019, you can now access the lessons on demand whenever you sign up. Lessons will arrive daily – though there’s no rush to work through the materials. You can take a year or more to savor the lessons if you like. They’re yours.
Each lesson will include an exploration of one or more of my favorites of Mary’s poems and an invitation to take it with you into your day. (I won’t be using just the most popular and well-known of her poems, but some of the countless other gems.)
