The Art of Unlearning

"The Alexander Technique is not a method to accumulate information nor the art of learning something new. It is, instead, the art of unlearning, which is much more subtle and, sometimes, a more difficult endeavor - unlearning that which is habitual, instead of natural; letting go of old patterns and of those repetitious opinions arrived at in times and circumstances totally different from those of the present."
(Laura Huxley, in: Michael Gelb, Body Learning, London 1987, Foreword to the new edition)

Die Kunst, alte Gewohnheiten abzulegen.
