Join us in an ideal pastoral setting for continuous learning and personal growth in the Company of Support – The Heart in Teaching the Alexander Work and the Heart in Learning. At Essex Woods we’ll have air-conditioned rooms, hot tub and sauna, and proximity to the ocean. We’ll have morning, afternoon, and evening workshops and special presentations with time set aside for reflection. Our time together will focus on individual growth and the positive application of the Alexander Technique in all aspects of life’s daily activities, performances, visions, and interpersonal relationships.

Did you know that there are receptors in our fingers and our hands which are connected to the centers in our brain responsible for conveying compassion? Could not Alexander teachers instill that same non-judgmental, compassionate touch already built into the system within the quality of their touch and invite their students to accept their new experience as an already existing part of their identity less foreign to them? This would require both heart and reasoning. With this in mind, we will explore the “heart” in the Alexander work, and as always “in the company of support “.

We will all arrive on Sunday afternoon, August 5th after 2PM, and gather as a group for an evening meal around 6PM. Our last event will finish on Friday August 10th at 2PM.
