Alexis' Speaking in Silence workshop changed the way I think about my physical communication, and about how I stand. I am still thinking about these things many years later.
Speaking in Silence offers teachers the opportunity to become aware of how their physicality impacts their presence in the classroom. They become wide awake (to borrow a phrase from Maxine Greene) to the ways in which their bodies are communicating at cross purposes to their words and how they can bring both messages into alignment in order to effectively reach students.
Whole-person communication creates possibilities to exist in different ways of thinking and being. There is something very futuristic in Alexis' approach that has the potential to create positive change on a global level.
