One-on-one or group / Face-to-face or online
Often used in dance therapy, authentic movement is a form of free mindful movement meditation and exploration in a safe and caring environment without judgement. Developed by dance therapist Mary Whitehouse, based one her work with Carl Jung, it involves a mover and a witness. With eyes closed, the mover is encouraged to pay attention to any thoughts, mental imagery, feelings, and body sensations and impulses, and allow these to guide her/his body movements. The witness offers a supportive, non-judgmental presence - a safe container in which all of the movers' self-expression can be held. This process enables you to practice listening to your own body and deepen your bodily intuition and trust in your inner voice, enhance your creative expression, and feel more connected to your authentic self. When done in group sessions, it also offers a deep sense of community and connection.
One-on-one: You'll be the mover and I'll be the witness.
Group: Participants can both move and witness others moving.
After moving and witnessing, we may draw, write and share our experience.
