The Act of Living by Walter Carrington

The Act of Living: Talks on The Alexander Technique

by Walter Carrington
Foreword by Tris Roberts
Introduction by Glynn MacDonald
Edited by Jerry Sontag

About the Book

For almost 50 years, Walter Carrington has walked into the teaching room at 18 Lansdowne Road in London, sat down in a chair, picked up one of F.M. Alexander’s books and begun to read aloud. The point at which he stops reading and begins sharing his thoughts, observations and experiences of the Alexander Technique with the assembled audience is the point at which this book begins.

The 29 talks in The Act of Living range widely in subject, from breathing and the 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, or the man who wants to change without changing, Walter Carrington gives the reader an inside look at this educational 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. The book is invaluable for anyone interested in directing his or her energies towards a freer, more spontaneous exploration of the world in which we live. It will change how you see, think and feel about yourself.

Thinking Aloud by Walter Carrington

Thinking Aloud: Talks on Teaching the Alexander Technique

by Walter Carrington
Introduction by John Nicholls
Edited by Jerry Sontag

About the Book

Thinking Aloud is a serious exploration of the Alexander Technique that goes beyond the standard introductions to this educational method. Walter Carrington, the author, condenses 50 years of teaching into 25 straightforward essays on all aspects of the Alexander Technique. The book was originally designed for teachers and teachers-in-training, but has proven popular with those readers interested in learning more about this approach to changing habitual behavior.

In Thinking Aloud, Walter Carrington takes a commonsense approach to the most commonplace of problems–the ways we use ourselves in daily life. Mr. Carrington is renowned for his hands-on teaching skills. He also has a remarkable ability to communicate complex ideas in an accessible way to teachers and students alike. The reader will find the relevance of these essays reaches far beyond the confines of a specific professional training program. The fundamental ways we think and function in daily life are the true subjects of Thinking Aloud.

How we use and take time is a recurring theme throughout Thinking Aloud. If there is any ticket for admission to this book, it is that time be taken while reading each of these talks. For the interested reader–whether one sings or plays a musical instrument, sits at a computer all day, or lifts children in and out of car seats–that investment will be repaid many times over.

It is the most comprehensive biography of Alexander’s extraordinary life published to date. For twenty- five years Jones conducted original scientic research into the Technique using a variety of methods including multiple-image photography (investigating changes in movement patterns), X-ray photography (examining the head-neck relationship) and electromygrams ( measuring muscles in different head-neck relationships). The most important results are presented and Jones explains some of the underlying mechanisms at work, including how the conscious mind activates anti-gravity reflexes. In « Notes on Teaching, » Jones summarizes his teaching experiences and sets out principles for good teaching practice.
