Alexander Technique & Authentic Movement
The Alexander Technique & Authentic Movement
How can these practices enrich and add possibilities to each other?
In this workshop we shall use the practice and form of Authentic Movement to focus on themes of non-doing, movement arising, and our modes and habits of perception.
Mary Starks Whitehouse who founded the term ‘authentic movement’ describes the process in which the person moving is ‘being moved’ as opposed to creating movement.
Participants will take equal time in being both mover and witness and explore how dropping deeply into the practice of inhibition may foster our capacity to stay with not knowing what movement and experiences may emerge. We will explore what arises in us whilst witnessing another move and practice speaking from our own experience. The invitation is to relate our discoveries to our Alexander practice.
Everyone welcome, no need for previous experience.
