Getting to the Public Workshop or the Advanced Training
Both the Public Workshop and the Practitioners' Advanced Training are
held in the Lithuanian House located at 1573 Bloor Street West, Toronto.
Transportation to the Lithuanian House is easily available.
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) offers subway, streetcar or bus to the
Dundas West TTC Station. Make sure you go to the Dundas WEST Station and not just the Dundas Station.
The TTC have a very nice travel planner that will provide a complete map including all subway stops, streetcar numbers and bus numbers. http://www.ttc.ca/Trip_planner/index.jsp
The Union-Pearson Express train (the 'UP') offers an express train directly from the airport or from Union Station to the Bloor Street stop. The Union-Pearson Express (the 'UP') has a map that shows their stops.
Lithuanian House is 1/2 block south of the Dundas West
TTC station and then 1 block west (turn right at the stoplights).
Lithuanian House is 2 blocks west from the UP Bloor stop
if you exit at the Bloor street exit.
(turn right when you exit the station onto Bloor Street).
Public Parking Lot on Dorval Road - 1/2 block away.
From within the city:
Subway - take the TTC subway (line 2) to Dundas West TTC Station.
Make sure you go to the Dundas WEST Station and not just the Dundas Station.
Streetcar - take streetcar number 504 or 505 directly to the Dundas West TTC Station.
Bus - use the TTC trip planner to find the bus numbers to go to the Dundas West TTC Station.
Using the bus might involve several transfers to different buses and/or transfers to subway or streetcar.
From Union Station: (Union Station is downtown Toronto and is the hub for VIA rail, GO trains, GO Buses, the 'UP' and TTC subway)
The 'UP' is highly recommended. Cost only $5.30 if you buy on-line - seniors are half price. If you decide to pay on the train there is an extra $2.00 admin fee - credit card only. Trip time about 12 minutes in a new train with very comfortable seats, lots of space for luggage and conductors to assist you. Take the 'UP' to the Bloor Street stop. https://www.upexpress.com/Tickets/Tickets
TTC subway - the subway is OK, but you must transfer (lots of stairs and a fair amount of walking) and it will be crowded in the morning and will take longer than the UP. Take line 1 north to Bloor St. Then transfer to Line 2 heading west to Dundas West Station.
Taxis - taxis are OK, but they are expensive and during rush hour it will take longer than the 'UP'.
From the airport:
The 'UP' is highly recommended. Cost only $5.65 if you buy on-line - seniors are half price. If you decide to pay on the train there is an extra $2.00 admin fee - credit card only. Trip time about 15 minutes in a new train with very comfortable seats, lots of space for luggage and conductors to assist you. Take the UP to the Bloor Street stop. https://www.upexpress.com/Tickets/Tickets
Taxis - taxis are OK, but not great. If using a taxi during the rush hour traffic it could take 1 hour or more. Average cost around $50 to $60. Some may want to charge up to $100 which you should not accept.
TTC bus is not advisable. Regular city bus express to the subway. Standard old TTC buses (not comfortable), plus a long trip of close to 1 hour. You arrive at the Kipling TTC station and then must transfer to the subway (a lot of walking). Cost is $3.25 (seniors $2.20) - exact change only if you do not have a 'PRESTO CARD'.
Public Workshop (March 21 and 22)
with Julie Peck and Gisele St. Hilaire
For Feldenkrais Practitioners Only
Announcing an Advanced Training with Julie Peck in Toronto
March 18, 19 and 20
How clarifying the orientation aspect of movement is invaluable in:
Learning to inhibit parasitic action
Clarifying our self-image and enhancing our self-knowledge
Directing ourselves clearly and effortlessly
Heightening a truly healthy joy of living
We’ll be furthering our skills in directing our attention more seamlessly and reversibly:
From our internal to external environments
From the big picture to the details
From the focused to the diffuse
More specifically, we’ll be exploring:
The relationship between particular organizations evoked by different types of lessons and orienting
How different ways of orienting impact our actions
The relationship between attending and orienting/orienting and attending
This helps us to be more selective in:
Choosing lessons for ourselves and our clients
Highlighting or pulling out different meta-themes within lessons
Choosing the quality of touch in FI™
Identifying our own and our clients habits of attending and orienting
Recognizing when orienting is the element of action that is in need of clarification and how to impact it
