The Space Within, Around And Between
Within but not enclosed, without but not excluded.
Hildegard von Bingen
The world is our consciousness, and it surrounds us.
Our souls dwell where our inner world and the outer world meet. Where they overlap, it is in every point of the overlap.
I don’t paint what I see. I paint what is between me and what I see.
All I’m trying to show you is a little bit of nothing.
Marjorie L. Barstow
The Alexander Technique is as much about the metaphysical as it is about the physical, as much about the mind as it is about the body, as much about the spirit as it is about the senses, as much about stillness as it is about movement.
Good postural support and moving well are wonderful, but they’re not, essentially, what the Alexander Technique is about. They’re perks.
The Alexander Technique is about space, space deep within us, physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s about presence through absence. It’s about the space all around us, beside us, behind us, before us. It’s about the space between; it’s about closeness through distance.
In this workshop you will learn, practically, how to bring greater spaciousness into your body and being. It may very well change the way you relate to yourself, to others, and to the world at large. It’s not difficult.
Whether you are new to the work, studying the work, training to become an Alexander teacher, or an Alexander teacher, I invite you to join me for a day you likely won’t forget.
