Liberation Through The Body
A simple and direct way of awakening to the present moment.
All of our past experiences are stored in the body becoming our habitual patterns. Through gentle movement explorations we can release these patterns and open to our true strength and naturalness.
An interesting and amazing transformation can take place which often surprises.
Learning to recognise the wholesome qualities of mind that come forth from exploring in this way and resting in them deepens insight into the nature of mind.
We become an embodiment of the present moment. A new found confidence emerges and continues to grow as we bring this empowering way of working into our lives.” – Leander Kane
Leander is a New Zealander. She combines more than 22 years of experience in Buddhism with her Body-orientated work as a Feldenkrais Practitioner; student of Kum Nye and Massage Therapist. She studied with Tarchin Hearn in the early years; traveling with him and attending yearly three month Retreats. He inspired her to Teach. Other teachers have been Venerable Namgyal Rinpoché, H.E. Beru Khentse Rinpoche; Bonni Ross; Cecilie Kwiat and the work of Moshe Feldenkrais.
She has crafted a unique and direct way of the unfolding human consciousness through the explorations of Body. Working this way deepens the understandings of the mysteries of Body/Mind for the liberation from suffering. “All of our past experiences are stored in the body becoming our habitual patterns. Through gentle movement sequences we can release these stuck body/mind patterns. We become an embodiment of the present moment. A new found confidence emerges and continues to grow as we bring this empowering way of working into our lives.”
For the last 20 years Leander has given residential retreats of 2 – 23 days at the Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre in Nelson. She also travels and teaches around New Zealand and Overseas in Australia, Canada and the United States.
