Teaching by Hand, Learning by Heart (paperback) is a collection of illuminating
stories drawn from Bruce Fertman’s teaching of the Alexander Technique
over many years. They show how people from around the world, beginners
or experienced pupils and teachers, have learned from Bruce’s
explorative questioning, his suggestions and his use of touch.
Bruce’s multi-layered approach to teaching the Technique includes anatomy, imagination, sensory guidance, movement, thinking rather than doing, change of intention, and even the recreation of a difficult situation so as to meet and deal with them differently, consciously and with clear intent.
The stories in this book illustrate the many aspects of the Alexander Technique as it deals with the whole human being. Thinking, feeling, sensing, reacting, wishing, breathing and moving are all simultaneous processes of the whole individual, and Bruce delves into these processes, both singly and in combination, facilitating a fundamental change: a change in the response to a stimulus.
Such a change creates a more unified individual. These stories exemplify the indivisibility of the self. They enlarge our understanding of the many layers through which the Alexander Technique works.
of the foremost representatives of Marjorie Barstow’s lineage, Bruce’s
work is unique and innovative. Bruce is especially gifted when it comes
to teaching in groups. He’s a philosopher, poet and writer who gives
voice to what is wonderful about the Alexander Technique.
