Book Details

Description

Here's what many spiritual seekers have called "a cup of water in the desert of theory."  McGowan develops his perception of how the body's "here and now" can enhance the development spiritual awareness. His method combines Alexander Technique with the Ramana Maharshi/Paul Brunton (mentalistic) perspective on spiritual development. 

McGowan, a teacher/trainer of Alexander teachers, focuses in this book on how a proper head-neck-back relationship heightens moment-to-moment awareness of the unity of mind-body-world. He expands this discussion to explore how a pain-free body serves as a springboard for attaining high spiritual aspirations.

From then until 1980 he had regular lessons with Jeanne and Aksel Haahr who studied under Walter Carrington in London. Walter Carrington studied under F.M Alexander and took over F.M’s training course after he passed away in 1955.

From September 1980 to July 1983, Danny undertook the three-year training course for teachers at the Alexander Technique Training Centre (A.T.T.C) in Dartington, England. Jeanne and Aksel Haahr were the Directors of this centre, which was run in association with Dartington College of Arts.

In July of 1983, he qualified as a teacher and started teaching immediately. He gladly accepted was a post Jeanne and Aksel offered him as a teacher at the A.T.T.C. and began work there in September 1983.  Since then he have always been a training-course teacher.
