Attention, Awareness, and Consciousness

Because in-person classes at the Dimon Institute have been suspended due to Coronavirus, we have moved our programs online and opened up our lecture series to include the entire Alexander Technique community. The following videos are part of the Attention, Awareness, and Consciousness Series that is being taught live on Zoom over two weeks beginning Monday, June 15. In order to include people from different time zones, we will be posting the live videos here. 


If you are interested in attending future series, you can sign up to learn more here:, or if you would like more information, please email us at


We hope you enjoy this series during these challenging times.
