About Authentic Movement
Authentic Movement technique (AM) is a simple yet profound movement practice that brings awareness to sensation and information streams stored in the body/mind and psyche, potent energy sources for dancers, therapists, performers, parents, teachers, healers, and all beings!
By creating space for allowing spontaneous streams of movement, Authentic Movement (AM) cultivates an embodiment practice, cultivating awake presence. Through movement investigation one learns to embrace all aspects of one’s movement and body sensations with curiosity while tuning into a place of freedom that exists within the present moment.
A solo practice, with the support of an external witness, we will dance both within our group as well as in pairs, experiencing the different roles of witness and mover.

MEDICINAL DANCE: An Authentic Movement & Contemplative Dance practice.
The basic human desire to be seen and accepted is one of the driving forces of life.
During an Authentic Movement (AM) session, students work in a safe container at their own pace, listening to inner experiences and movement impulses to find ways of moving that feel nourishing and satisfying. The practice can be with groups or dyads but involves one person/s working in the role of “mover/s,” while another serves as a “witness.”
For the mover, deep intimacy with oneself emerges as inner states are revealed through contemplative practice, playfulness and the unwinding of unwanted tension. Subtle and profound insights come to us and awareness arises from the roots of the body. Sensation, feeling and action are sourced. Over the course of time, the relationship between self and other deepens and transforms into profound insight and trust.
All are welcome. No dance or movement training needed.
“Movement is the unifying bond between the mind and the body, and sensations are the substance of the bond.”
