Spinal Awareness? by Ellen Bierhorst

I love studying the Alexander Technique with Yehuda Kuperman, whether in Israel (He is now back in his Jerusalem penthouse apartment), In Cincinnati, or at an ACGM — or at the 10th International Congress in Limerick, Ireland August 2015 — And Yehuda is always talking about the teacher’s ‘connection’ to the sky, to the forces of Nature all around, the invisible cords connecting him/her to the heavens and to the pupil.  When I think of this, and reach out my awareness it can feel sometimes like my spine is a sensory organ, picking up the connectedness, perhaps also beaming out the connectedness.  And when I spend a few moments in the morning thinking about this and feeling for it in my awareness, I always have, curiously, a much better day, graced with inner happiness.
