The subject matter is Alexander Technique and homeopathy.

Keith Silvester writes:

The process of psychological and emotional change cannot be divorced from the body. The problem is that the body can get ‘stuck’ in habitual patterns through poor use. FM Alexander’s discoveries in the early years of the 20th century, obtained by close self-observation, were that such habits can gradually change through processes which involved ‘inhibition’ and the re-training of ‘direction’, such that the relationship between head-neck-back.

The role of the mind and our habitual way of thinking are crucial to the way we use and mis-use our bodies. What is not so obvious is that the effects may work the other way too: changes in the way we use our bodies affect feelings, thoughts, and subjective experience. Sometimes an Alexander Technique lesson can evoke spontaneous and unexpected reactions rooted in past experiences, and the effects on emotion and ‘sense of self’ can be profound and life-changing.

In this presentation there will be some experiential work involved.

Alexandre Winkler writes:

“Homeopathic provings and their therapeutic applications have demonstrated that all disturbed physical and psychological functional patterns, fixations and crises have macroscopic substance likenesses “out there”. That means our complexes are in functional correspondence not only with the code systems of our organs – our muscular body armour, acupuncture meridians and points – but also with the informational systems encoded in the various substance patterns and field systems of the outside world.“
