Listening Council

This is an invitation to gather and listen to each other.  Being together in Berlin offers us an opportunity to share our hopes, dreams, fears, and fantasies about the current qualities of our community, as well as any directions we would like to see in the future.

We will use a process called Council. Council is a non-hierarchical, confidential form for speaking and listening
from the heart, created and evolved by indigenous cultures worldwide, and shared as a wisdom tradition for all people. Council practice elicits the co-creation of community, recognizing that each voice needs to be heard, and that every person has a gift, a story to share, and a piece of the whole. Rather than having a discussion, Council Circles offer a place for offering and receiving; a container where each story is heard and held, allowing the deeper wisdom of the group to be revealed.

Everyone is welcome, and you always have the choice to share, to pass, and/or to witness.

Let’s listen to each other.


About Robyn Avalon

Robyn has been studying Alexander’s Work since 1975, being first introduced to it as a young professional performing artist. She is the Founding Director of the Contemporary Alexander School, offering self-paced, non-residential teacher training programs in Santa Fe, NM, Portland, OR, & NYC, and in satellite cities throughout North America; as well as Co-Director of the Alexander Alliance International, offering workshops, teacher training, and post-graduate studies throughout Europe and Asia. Robyn is also the Creator of Living in a BodyTM, a Professional Body Mapping Certification Course translated into 6 languages and taught worldwide.
Robyn’s primary studies were with Marjorie Barstow, Bruce Fertman, and the Alexander Alliance, and she now continues Marj’s lineage in her own training programs. In addition, Robyn has also had the pleasure of being mentored by numerous first and second generation teachers over the past 45 years, and enjoys exploring ways to bridge all styles.
At this point in her teaching career, Robyn’s main interests include training Alexander Teachers in Group Teaching/Crafting of Alexander Games; teaching in real life Situations and Activities; incorporating Body Mapping (LIABTM), Bridging Classical and Contemporary styles of the Work; and helping bring more awareness to Equity and Diversity issues within our profession.
Robyn lives in New Mexico & New York City, USA, shares her life with her wife of 30+ years, 2 adult sons, and 4 cats, and loves to tap dance.
