  3. Dear Robert:
    Wow! Thank you!! I may be a lot like John Dewey, as I had one of my greatest Aha moments during the time I was diagnosed with MS. The Alexander Technique is in me in my every intentional thoughtful movement that I make and has been life giving to me.

  4. Great post, Robert. The research pilot study that I was involved in at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center a few years ago focused on the use of the Self of surgeons using laparoscopic surgical instruments during minimally invasive surgery. Hopefully, we will be able to continue with this research at some point to bring home to more people the fact that, even though the ergonomic design of the objects we manipulate is important and helpful to consider, it is the self-use of the one who is using the technology which is essentially important to well-being and optimal functioning of both the person and the technological instrument he is using.

    • Hi Jennifer,

      That’s a great example of a technology that has all sorts of benefits and yet only works at it’s best when the human operators (surgeons) a using themselves well.


  5. Robert, I like this hugely, thank you! To me it is actually nearer the AT than ‘the usual concerns’; what happens at the point equipment (life) and I meet, no matter what I am doing. I hope lots of people read this and gain much needed hope and direction out of these very modern situations – RSI and CTS, etc, etc, and sadly etc…
