Annual Alexander Alliance Summer Retreat Germany
15. – 19. July 2017
Our yearly summer retreat offers 5 days of concentrated studying in a relaxed atmosphere.
Time seems to stand still during retreats. Our retreat structure allows you to have an intense, personal experience of Alexander’s work. You will have the opportunity to meet the teachers and students of the Alexander Alliance who will have their training event at the same time.
Bruce Fertman and Midori Shinkai, two exceptional members of the International Alexander community, will lead the teaching team assisted by teachers from Germany. Classes will be taught in English with translation into German.
We, the Alexander Alliance Germany, are an intergenerational, multicultural community/school inspired by F.M. Alexander and Marjorie L. Barstow. Our purpose is to train skillful and compassionate Alexander teachers, which we have been doing, ceaselessly and enjoyably, for 35 years.
Alexander Alliance students learn to free themselves, and others, from stasis, restriction, and fixation. We learn to accompany people into their fluidity, spaciousness, and poise, while making sure everyone’s feet rest comfortably upon common, and solid, ground.
We awaken people to a sensory world full of simple pleasures. Our art is human touch – an inexhaustible resource for education, human nurturance, and growth. Our job is to gently un-harness deep, naturally organized patterns of vitality within ourselves, and within our students.
This groundswell of energy strengthens the will to live, love, learn, and work, generously and freely.
There is no place quite like the Alexander Alliance Germany. I invite you to come, and to study, and to find out why.
