This course is being offered because a substantial number of teachers have asked me for more in-depth work on a more consistent basis, closely aligned with the content of workshops I’ve given over the past years in Europe, Asia, Canada and the USA.
Although the course is designed primarily for teachers of the Alexander Technique, there are a limited number of spaces offered to exceptional trainees and committed students of the Alexander teaching.
Course emphasis: We will be exploring ways of working with a greater degree of awareness than one might think is possible. There will be a distinct emphasis on the clarity and simplicity of both explanation and practice when using your hands to convey the principles and concepts embodied in Alexander’s teaching. We will look at the value of bringing the work to the person as compared to bringing the person to the work. Bringing the person to the work does certainly have obvious rewards; it provides the student with an integrated experience not otherwise available to them given their commitment to the habitual and familiar way of involving themselves in a given life activity. However, when we emphasize the person, we have the chance to illuminate their potential, rather than correcting their habits. We will use our habitual nature as a point of reference to look more closely into possibility.
For you personally, the course will offer authentic ways of experiencing yourself that better clarify your life’s purpose.
