Alexander Technique

Over the last few days several people have been asking me about anxiety.  I am not a mental health practitioner and always suggest that people seek appropriate medical advice, but do find Alexander’s writings on breathing are very helpful.  F M Alexander first marketted his approach as “Respiratory Re-Education.” He refused to separate the concepts of mind and body, using the phrase ‘psycho-physical unity’.  I have found Alexander lessons have helped pupils with anxiety, grief, depression and paranoia.  If you would like to know more, contact me!

I woke up this morning to a New Moon, this time in Pisces. Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, is also in Pisces, is retrograde Mercury.  That all sounds very technical but maybe the message is to loosen up, to imagine and to dream.
