About this event

FACING RISK AND UNCERTAINTY WITH CURIOSITY

Do you know that feeling of uncertainty when you are thrilled with the aliveness and newness of your sensory experience, yet it’s a bit scary?

Have you been in an Alexander lesson where you are more UP than you have ever been and you have that moment of panic that you don’t know how to move from that place?

Let’s look a little deeper into experiences like this so we can bring more self-awareness into those moments and perhaps even seek them out. We’ll explore the cautiousness associated with letting the head release with gravity. We’ll ask, “Is there a sweet spot here?” “What is the relationship between accepting that our brain needs to avoid risks and having the courage to take a leap of faith or dip a toe into unfamiliar waters?”

Bring your curiosity.

Have space to lie on the floor with a mat, a rolled towel and some books.

ABOUT KATHRYN MIRANDA

Kathryn Miranda has been teaching the Alexander Technique for thirty years and directs a teacher training course in Syracuse, NY. (www.alexandertechniquesyracuse.com)

She is on the faculty of the Syracuse University’s Drama Department and Setnor School of Music.

She has an ongoing interest in the evolutionary, biological and yet-to-be-understood underpinnings of the discoveries of F. M. Alexander. She attributes her openness and curiosity in lifelong learning to the influence of one of teachers, Judith Leibowitz. She carries on Judy’s legacy of amazing teaching by the work she does today and by organizing and editing a variety of original transcripts and recordings into the book Dare To Be Wrong. https://www.acatnyc.org/blog-posts/2014/10/02/dare-to-be-wrong-by-judith-leibowitz-now-available-on-kindle
