Description

A fascinating memoir, in interview form, on the life and thoughts of Marjory Barlow. Marjory Barlow grew up with the Alexander Technique, and the Alexander Technique grew up with her. She started daily lessons on her 17th birthday with her uncle F.M. Alexander, and joined his teacher training course a year later. She was 21 when she qualified as a teacher of the Alexander Technique and she stayed on as her uncle's assistant for a further four years. She ran her own training course from 1950 until the 1980's. An Examined Life is Marjory's opportunity to gather and share the unique experiences of her seven-decade career.

For those of you who know Marjory Barlow, you know you are in for a treat. And if you haven't had that good fortune, these conversations are a generous invitation to share the benefits of an examined life.

An Examined Life is a beautifully designed hardcover edition. It includes Appendices with Marjory Barlow's two Memorial lectures, as well as stories and aphorisms collected by several teachers trained by her.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us. He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with that all-important business contact."

Churton, Tobias
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?
