Constructive Awareness

  • image
Daniel McGowan

Subtitled Alexander Technique and the Spiritual Quest, this book sets out to explain the benefits of the Technique (here called “Constructive Awareness”) for spiritual work. He emphasizes that spiritual work starts with being in oneself, here and now, and points out the dangers of physical misuse during meditation, breathing exercises, and hatha yoga. The principles of inhibition and directions are described using almost exclusively Alexander’s choice of words and style of phrasing. The spiritual philosophy adhered to is that of Paul Brunton’s whose key concepts include reincarnation, the “Overself” and mentalism. The author also discusses detachment and the way of inspired action (necessary when aspiring to the state of Sage or Master). [111 pages, 216x140mm, 1997, Larson Publications]
