Abstract:

The 29 talks in The Act of Living range widely in subject---from breathing and balance of the head on the neck to the pain of sciatica and the effect of gravity on our lives. Whether he is speaking about the bones of the pelvis, of the man who wants to change without changing, Walter Carrington gives the reader an inside look at this practical technique for changing habitual behavior. The Act of Living serves as a gentle reminder for teachers of some of the thoughts worth considering in a lesson; it helps students quicken their understanding of the fundamental principles of the Alexander technique. And it will help all of us direct our energies towards a freer, more sponstaneous exploration of the world in which we live.
