“The discipline of Authentic Movement… is about the relationship between two people, the witness and the mover” –Janet Adler
In this 8-week group we will pay attention to ourselves and to others by practicing the art of seeing and being seen in our embodied experience of movement.
This group will focus on present centered-awareness and non-judgment as its core tenants.
Authentic Movement encourages less dominant aspects of the self to arise, creating room to be moved by emotion and sensation, rather than logic. This change in attention often allows for unconscious material to come forward and by using the relationship between mover and witness we can bring that embodied material into conscious awareness.
This leads to self-trust using your body’s impulses and knowledge to create an empowered relationship with your lived experiences and yourself.
*All levels of dance experience welcome.
