Combining the Alexander Technique
Using the power of awareness to awaken the inner wisdom of your living body
Alex Maunder has been an Alexander Technique Teacher for over 25 years and a Focuser for 24 years. He met Kevin McEvenue the founder of Wholebody Focusing 12 years ago and has been working closely with him ever since. WBF combines Focusing with Alexander Technique.
The A.T. gives you a sense of interconnected energy flow within the whole body and a solid, supported, grounded presence. This gives the safe container within which the process of transformation can take place. Feeling safe and grounded is essential for releasing stress and trauma. Focusing gives you the insight into the emotional and psychological significance of your present physical tension patterns and blockages. So it helps to clarify a meaning, it gives an understanding, a context to the intensity of the pain and the emotions that might otherwise just suck you in.
By having the safety of the container it is possible to stay with these uncomfortable feelings in conscious awareness and then from this position of being the detached observer you can create space for your inner Body Wisdom to work, to release the tension and to bring you back to a place of balance and calmness again, a new understanding emerges that is also a new vision of your forward moving Life Direction.
I Just want to say a big THANK YOU for the work we've done in the last two weeks. It's brain-changing (and therefore LIFE CHANGING). As a direct result of last week's session, I'm working more creatively and producing some of my best work ever. As a direct result of this week's session, my time and energy is not consumed with anger about my pain and I have more control than I thought about what I think about.I can't believe we can achieve all this by Skype!
