Joining Hands – L´Estudi Centre Tècnica Alexander Barcelona and The Alexander Alliance Germany meet in Barcelona for an Autumn Retreat – Oct. 16-23, 2016
Only a few spaces remain for guest Alexander trainees and teachers to join our inquiry into the interface between the Carrington and Barstow traditions. Nica’s trainees and our trainees will be joining hands, getting to know one another, and each others work. We’ll all be opening our minds and hearts and, together, letting in the new and unknown.
Nica Gimeno has been teaching AT for 29 years. Her devotion to Carrington’s vision of Alexander work is strong. At the same time, Nica teaches through who she is. She possesses a rare blend of qualities; she’s deep and lighthearted, clear and creative, organized and spontaneous. She’s a natural teacher who can pass on what she knows.
Robyn Avalon, director of the Contemporary Alexander School, will be with us only for one day, but Robyn can accomplish more in one day than most experienced teachers can in one week. Robyn’s a whirlwind of knowledge. She will sweep you off your feet while leaving you firmly on the ground.
It’s an honor to be working side by side these two gifted and seasoned teachers.
This gathering will happen in Barcelona at Fundacio La Plana. Click on their link and have a look.
Here’s a bit of information about the retreat. To register for the event write to Celia Jurdant Davis.
Dates: The retreat begins on Sunday, October 16th after lunch and ends on Sunday 23rd of October after lunch.
Place: Fundació “La Plana”, Spain / Catalonia
Other places shown in the map are important for traveling: El Prat => airport, Santa Maria D’olo => nearest place (on weekends) for public transport, Manresa => nearest train station)
Tuition (630 €) + overnight and meals (48€ * 6 night= 288€) = 918€.
If for whatever reasons you cannot be with us for the entire retreat, and if you would like to attend for part of the time, that can be arranged.
Food “La Plana” offers:
Normal (includes meat), vegetarian, lactose free, and wheat free.
Due to the accommodation situation in “La Plana” it’s not possible to arrive earlier than Sunday, 16th.
We’ll hire a bus for the forenoon of Sunday 16th from Barcelona center to La Plana. We may be able to pickup students at the airport as well, but that’s, as yet, not certain.
There will also be a hired bus on Sunday 23rd which brings us after lunch back to Barcelona (definitely to Barcelona airport, and likely to Barcelona center as well). With the bus it will be feasible to get a plane which starts at 19h or later. For earlier planes we’ll have to check. There is place for additional people in the bus. Prices for the hired bus will be around 20€ to 30€ per person.
There is also a bus from public transport from Barcelona to “the area” of La Plana. Depending on the day of the week, the bus ends about 5km to 20km away from La Plana. A private transport, taxi, is necessary from there on.
For accommodation options contact Celia Jurdant Davis.
Last I heard there were opening for 6 more guests.
Join us if you can.
