O other (link with chi)
This is a presentation establishing the link between F. M. Alexander's 'direction' and what several modalities -- Tai Chi, Qi Gong -- refer to as Chi. Patrick Macdonald also spoke of 'the life force' and remarked to his trainees that 'you have to produce the flow in your student.'
I will explore the active recognition of that energy on the part of both teacher and student, its relation to meditative states, and how it can help us achieve the seamless continuity from interior flow to spatial displacement.
