Why Making Peace with yourself ?

Identity is a key part of what the Alexander work is all about: it enables us to forge a deeper sense of who we are.  We will be looking at identity in a lighthearted and supported way. We'll look at topics such as fluidity of identity and identity in relationship, and identity as attachment to personal narrative. We will provide the time, space, and support to explore who you wish to be and quite possibly have always been. For the ultimate use of self is to make peace with yourself so that you can be at peace with yourself... and others.
Join us again ... or for the first time and welcome to another summer 'In the Company Of Support'.
