Here’s F.M. Alexander on welcoming the unknown:

… that the attempt to bring about change involving growth, development and progressive improvement in the use and functioning of the human organism, calls necessarily for the acceptance, yes, the welcoming of the unknown in sensory experience, and this unknown’ cannot be associated with the sensory experiences that have hitherto felt right’.

From p.19 of The Use of the Self.

I just love that Mr A is simply saying that it must feel wrong. It is as if dance training has it all back to front with its reliance on the desire to have movement actions make sense.
