The practice of Authentic Movement speaks to people on many levels. Some come to nourish their body’s physical creature needs, others come to surrender to the moment and welcome the unknown, others touch into places of personal history in need of healing, some discover their playful nature, and sometimes one has a powerful, numinous experience. The beauty of the practice is in its openness. 

About the practice: Authentic Movement, a physical practice of self-inquiry and expression, has been used as a spiritual and artistic resource, and a supportive process for bodymind integration and healing since the 1960’s. 

In the receptive presence of an experienced witness, and with eyes closed, we turn our attention inward and move, following the impulses that arise from within. Stillness, sound, subtle or large scale moving through space may all be part of the experience. There is no right or wrong way. At the core of Authentic Movement is the belief in the wisdom of the body.

No prior movement experience is necessary. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may wish to bring a journal and water to drink.

Cost: $10-$15
