FORGING PATHWAYS: Charting a course to a better world

  • How do Alexander Technique teachers and practitioners build new kinds of maps together? 
  • How do these maps -  the pathways we forge -  impact or inspire personal growth, research inquiries, social change, and the evolution of ATI alongside our various cultures? 
  • In what ways can AT teaching incorporate ideas and offerings from the study of neural plasticity and brain functioning? What learning maps are possible from the intertwining of these two paradigms? Or, in what ways are we charting a new course through the intertwining of these two paradigms?
  • How does AT promote goodwill in teaching methods and practice? In what ways does the Technique encourage or impart kindness, compassion, and understanding? 
  • How can ATI improve or sustain leadership that directs the energies of our organization in forging pathways? How can ATI model goodwill and actions that lead our culture toward a better world?

At this conference, we are excited to share in all of the research, course material, teaching strategies, papers, and performance ideas that Alexander Technique facilitates all over the world! Let the prompts above inspire your thinking.
