Trager for Self-Healing
From the Back Cover
Find Enlightenment Through You Physical Body
Audrey Mairi views enlightenment not as a philosophical puzzle to solve or a spiritual epiphany but instead as an everyday experience grounded in ordinary physical movements. Designed for all ages and fitness levels, Trager for Self-Healing presents simple ways to increase awareness of the present moment. While many books offer advice about being in the “Now”, few point out practical ways to experience what that actually feels like. The exercises in this book are designed to anchor the feeling of presence in the body/mind.
From the Foreword
The successful use of this book will require active engagement on the part of the reader. It will be to no avail if you simply read it, close it, and say, “I got it.” Let your reading be an opening to a doing, to a practice and refinement of the simple but powerfully effective meditations in awareness and movement you will find here. And why not? The engagement called for here is with yourself–the most accessible and most important person in your life. So take this book home not as a weekend read but as a long-term companion. As they say in Alcoholics Anonymous, “Keep coming back; it works if you work it.” Here is a guide out of the cul-de-sac of impotence and debilitation. Work it. Lighten up.

Praise for Pathway to Presence Combo

Praise for Pathway to Presence E-Book
“Pathway to Presence is absolutely fabulous. A gem of a handbook to happiness. The shifts from narrative to scenarios to exercises are perfect.”

Praise for Pathway to Presence CD
“Audrey, I love your CD. Almost always the voice carrying a guided meditation is "off" in some way that leaves me feeling irritated. Not yours. I love the clean authenticity of your delivery, congruence of content and form. What a relief to be able to wholeheartedly recommend it with no caveat or qualm!“
Susan Holper , Senior Trager Practitioner, Tutor.
Praise for Audrey’s Workshops
“My two day experience in Audrey Mairi’s workshop resulted in a definite shift in my sense of alignment within my body and in relationship with the earth. Not only do I feel more grounded but also noticed that most of my aches and pains have disappeared. Her teachings are clear, the exercises and concepts profoundly simple and mightily effective. I had fun learning and therefore can remember each segment easily and with joy. I highly recommend her workshops, her book, her CD and deeply value her private sessions.“
