July 6th

    When you meditate, you begin to notice thoughts, fantasies, storylines, emotions, mental clarity or mental fog. All of these have physical manifestations in the body- illuminating that mind and body are not seperate. Some traditions use the term “mindbody” to describe this knowledge.

    F.M. Alexander used the term “psycho-physical unity” at the turn of the 20th century. Alexander has been credited as the first Western somatic educator.

    Having seven years of intensive training and personal experience in somatic work, including a somatic-based yoga nidra meditation and The Alexander Technique, Suzanne will be speaking about her experience with psycho-physical unity and how it relates to mindfulness-awareness meditation.
