Full Description:

The Alexander Technique is a powerful resource for resilience and calm. It enables us to gain insight into how we deplete ourselves if we care for others without proper care and kindness for our own self. The Technique equips us with practical skills to provide compassionate care to others while looking after ourselves.

This 8 week course is offered to support anyone who recognises a need in themselves for care and kindness, and to those who have formal or informal caring roles. This may be caring for family at home, professionally at work, or in our passion for a cause, such as climate activism or social justice.

In the midst of life's challenges, we can inadvertently be causing ourselves harm as we try to juggle our responsibilities to meet the various demands on our time and energy, as well as what may seem like our limited or depleted reserves of kindness and patience.

We may be yearning to connect with compassion to those in difficulty but in opening to suffering, we seem drained, frozen, and find ourselves turning away. How can we stay sensitive yet strong and resilient when faced with suffering? Can we strengthen ourselves without becoming numb or hardened? We are the primary instrument in our caring and need to be nourished if we are to be strong for others.

In this course, we work as a supportive and non-judgemental group, respecting each other's vulnerability and confidentiality. The course is open to all who are happy to work in that way, from beginners to those with prior experience of Alexander Technique.

While the live workshops will take place in Zoom all participants will receive an invitation to join our Basecamp online forum for additional support and group communication.
