Pete’s Blog – Sunday 18th Sept – “Purity and Simplicity” in the Alexander Technique

I went to the launch of Sue Laurie’s new book, “Touching Lives” last Wednesday and was impressed by the simplicity and economy of her presentation. I know the science of the Technique is complex but the human mind seems to prefer simplicity over complication for everyday purposes. That includes the Alexander teaching situation. Sue’s presentation was both simple and economical and left me refreshed and uplifted after a busy day. I hope the experience will continue to influence my own teaching. Stopping, directing oneself and being imaginative in the way one applies the work goes a long way.
