REACH YOUR DREAMS is an introduction to the F.M. Alexander Technique from the point of view of the Interactive Teaching Method.
The Alexander Technique is a life-changing constellation of principles, disciplines and practices that everyone can apply to their every day and specialised activities in order to make their lives simpler and more effective.
Based on Alexander’s own observation that his work is “an exercise in finding out what thinking really is,” the Interactive Teaching Method shows students how to organize their thinking in new and different ways in order to learn how to have more fun, get more life out of life, and reach their dreams.
In WHAT YOU THINK IS WHAT YOU GET, Don Weed provides the best possible foundation for students to master the work of F.M. Alexander. With remarkable simplicity, precision and humour, he clarifies the central ideas at the heart of Alexander’s technique for self-improvement and reaching your dreams.
FOUR DAYS IN BRISTOL captures the intensity and excitement of Don Weed’s first visit to the Bristol Alexander Technique Student Association (BATSA) training course in 1993 as well as the reactions of the teachers, trainees and trainers who were present. This four-day workshop provided a unique opportunity to articulate and present many of the basic principles and processes used by Don when teaching and, as a result, this transcript gives the reader an in-depth overview and introduction to the Interactive Teaching Method for the teaching of the F.M. Alexander technique.
ESCAPE FROM THE MONKEY TRAP is an in-depth look at the first three chapters of Freedom to Change by Frank Pierce Jones. In addition to the wealth of information from Jones’ text, this book also introduces many of the most important analytical and practical tools used in the Interactive Teaching Method to study the work of F.M. Alexander. Using an innovative format, readers are brought directly into the ITM classroom experience as their personal journey towards understanding the Alexander Technique begins.
