How to Feel

In this session I would like to explore with the participants one of the the greatest human abilities we call “feeling”. We shall also look at the brilliant but widely misunderstood, even misused discoveries of F. M. Alexander “Faulty Sensory Appreciation”. Sensing, feeling and awareness are essential aspects of becoming conscious, but we must understand the differences and where our all too habitual interpretations can go wrong. Our focus will be a positive one, discovering how much we actually CAN trust!

The vital process of learning what and how to feel and learning to trust our feelings is central to our healthy sense of self. This is an enormous area of study and experience so we will keep it simple and direct and in connection to our work as Alexander Technique practitioners.

There will be time for questions and answers.

About Nadia Alexandra Kevan

I was born and grew up in England where I trained to be a dancer and actor. After performing with several national theatre companies in Germany and then free lancing as a dancer/performer, I trained to be an Alexander Teacher in Denmark with Karen Wentworth and Dr. Chris Stevens. I developed the approach to teaching AT through the Support System with Chris who was then my husband. I have been training Alexander Teachers in Germany and Netherlands for 30 years incorporating the Dynamic Breathing and Voice work by my late husband Ron Murdock. Our way of AT teaching is called the Psycho-Physical Support System. 1993 -2021 I was professor of Body Awareness at the Folkwang University of Arts in Essen, Germany, where I also chaired a forum for Body Awareness and co-founded a movement called \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”The Psychology of Creating Art\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”. I am founder and director of a practice and training called \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”Dance of Life\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” and I also research, perform and run a healing practice through Reiki energy, Spiritual Awareness and Heart Centred Contemplation.
