WHO WE ARE:
The Alexander Lowen Foundation- Expanding the Worldwide Bioenergetic Community
Robert Glazer, PhD
During the year 2003, I had the pleasure of editing Alexander Lowen’s Autobiography, Honoring the Body, which was published by Bioenergetics Press (www.BioenergeticsPress.com) in 2004. I found Al always to be open to any and all questions I asked him, strongly opinionated about Bioenergetics, and very committed to working his body. At 93, he would go over the stool every day and walked three to four times a day. The Alexander Lowen Foundation was created with Al’s blessings and appreciation by Fred Lowen, John Yong, and Robert Glazer. Its purpose is to expand the worldwide bioenergetic community. The formal announcement of The Alexander Lowen Foundation, a non-profit foundation, was made over the internet on August 15th, 2007. The e-mail announcement was opened by over 1,000 individuals in 69 countries. We will be beginning our membership drive at the end of 2007.
The Alexander Lowen Foundation is dedicated to continuing the evolution and teachings of Alexander Lowen’s Bioenergetics. The Foundation is dedicated to:

The workshop was available in two tracks, following the tradition of the Pawling workshops that were offered for many years.

The workshops continue Alexander Lowen’s work.
