Finding Quiet Strength (FQS) is a practical philosophy that connects to both ancient wisdom and modern neuroscience.
At some point, most of us need help with the challenges of life. FQS is a practice of being present in a way that develops our emotional intelligence and embodied awareness enabling us to navigate the many ups and downs of being human. The work helps us to develop a deep and gentle self-acceptance.
A core element of this work is inspired by F.M. Alexander's principles of inhibition and direction, stopping, thinking and connecting. With practice, we can take a moment to pause and consider how we might be limiting ourselves and begin to notice the interconnection of our mindset with our bodies. Often the patterns of worrying and anxiety that we embody can be below our conscious radar and can start to limit the joy, peace and ease which we find when we feel in charge of ourselves.
Finding Quiet Strength integrates Alexander's discoveries with Chi Kung and Tai Chi. These ancient traditions help us recognize the signals of threat that trigger old patterns of defenze and fear and restore us to a sense of being centered and to regain conscious control. FQS works on the relationship between thinking in stillness and thinking in activity to find a sense of wholeness in whatever we do so we can feel at home with ourselves in all situations and our lives can become more joyful.Key Points
