Thank you so much for a deeply restorative and inspiring week . You wove the wisdom of The Alexander Technique so lovingly and sensi-tively …facilitating tender and caring song lines in our feet as we re-acquainted ourselves with the wisdom that lives in our bodies. Thank you for all the love and deep commitment which lives in your gentle hands which met our bodies with such deep respect and care. Thank you for protecting this seed for the future of human evolution – this seed called The Alexander Technique. Thank you for giving us glimpses of who we truly can be in our bodies and on the body of this sacred earth K.B.
I value so much what you have opened me to over the years. It has sup-ported me in obvious and also subtle ways, through my reading and writing, taking me through the changes in my life C.R.

MINDFUL BODY – EMBODIED MIND
The attentive mind is like a well-trained athlete , a disciplined dancer, a chess or aikido master – a mind that has all the subtleness, suppleness, flexibility, and appropriated knowledge to deal with every person and every situation in a totally focused and appropriate way.
