The Esalen workshop was an extended program taught to a small group of professionals in 1972 with the intention of introducing the participants to the breadth and depth of the Feldenkrais Method and eventually forming them as teachers of the Feldenkrais group work, Awareness Through Movement. The participants included many of the leading people in the humanistic psychology movement, thus the atmosphere was lively and Moshe was highly engaged. The course took place over a five-week period and included 46 outstanding Awareness Through Movement lessons (three of which do not appear in the manuscript version), each highly structured and suited for a 45 to 60 minute class. The lessons include versions of classic lessons not seen elsewhere and a range of powerful lessons unique to this setting. It is one of the most valuable teaching resources available to a professional Feldenkrais practitioner (IT IS AVAILABLE ONLY TO PROFESSIONAL FELDENKRAIS PRACTITIONERS AND STUDENT PRACTITIONERS).
