Alex Maunder & Susan Miles

Beneath our stress and trauma lies an inner wellspring of intelligence and vitality that knows how to move our life situations forward. Invite your power of awareness to awaken this wisdom of the living body through the natural process of Wholebody Focusing.

Combining elements of the Alexander Technique with the Focusing practice developed by Eugene Gendlin, Wholebody Focusing encourages more of the body into the process of self-enquiry, increasing grounded presence and energy flow.

Please note: Wholebody Focusing includes aspects of The Alexander Technique. No prior experience of this work is necessary, but some hands-on bodywork skills will be taught.

We will also explore the value of intuitive listening with Wholebody Focusing. When connected to our grounded presence, our body wisdom knows how to be with and listen to the other person in a way that we do not. Going beyond the cognitive mind and all theories to a place of pure intuitive knowing, words come that are exactly the right thing to say at the moment as a way of supporting the speaker.
