I feel deep care for our planet. I sometimes feel despair for the tiny influence I have on influencing the systems that lock people into their habitual patterns that disconnect them from their innate love and care.
My main interest in life (apart from my family) is growing my capacity to live with compassionate, skillful consciousness - for myself, others and the planet - and supporting others to do the same.
I bring this consciousness, to the best of my ability, into my Alexander Teaching, the group NVC retreats I run and individual Compassion Coaching.
I offer deep gratitude to many people in my life including my family.
The main Alexander teachers who have influenced my work are:
My father (who was taught by FM Alexander himself and who introduced me to the Alexander Technique and gave me lessons as a child)
FM Alexander - whose books and work I studied
Margaret Goldie - who was on Alexander's first training course for teachers and, over 2-3 years taught me the deepest lessons about non-doing
Walter Carrington - who, with his supporting teachers, trained me to become a teacher
