Authentic Movement: Moving from Within

November 14, 2008 - November 16, 2008

Authentic Movement, a meditative and therapeutic form of dance/movement therapy, explores the relationship between the mover/client and the witness/therapist—seeing and being seen. With roots in the psychology of C.G. Jung this natural, depth-oriented approach supports the capacity to be present, in a more vital, increasingly conscious relationship. Safe and non-directive, the practice invites a perception of self and other that can evoke embodied resonance, deep respect, and empathy. Theoretical material will be integrated with experiential explorations, assisting you in rediscovering your natural rhythms, bridging body, psyche, and soul through expressive movement, embodied dreamwork, drawing and writing. No experience in dance is necessary—only a desire to feel more at home in your body, and the courage to live your dreams.

This is a weekend course taught for the Expressive Arts Therapy Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). Auditing the course may be possible, if space allows.
