About The Event
Do you feel like doing something different, playful and meaningful with your partner while being at home? Join the Authentic Movement experience for Couples, a date designed to help you strengthen connection and enhance intimacy through loving presence, playful movement, and non-sexual touch. Couples of all genders and sexual orientation who are already in a relationship are welcome.
I will guide you on a journey to experience each other as you may never have before. We will start with simple movement exercises that are playful to encourage even the shiest part of yourself to relax and have fun. Then you and your partner will continue with guided explorations of mirroring, eye contact, and physical touch with eyes closed, that will help you to see, listen, feel and appreciate each other in new, wholehearted ways.
To prepare for the experience:
- Make sure that you and your partner are in the same physical space and can have some privacy during the workshop
- clear out or open up the room from furniture so that you have some more space around you to move freely
- have ready some drawing materials that you can use and a big white paper (if you do not have one just tape together 6 white smaller papers)
- Wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move and bring your open presence and beginner’s mind as this workshop is mainly experiential. Movement explorations are adaptable to all physical abilities and conditions.
Group is limited to 11 couples
All ages, genders, spiritual beliefs and physical abilities are welcome
Upon registration you will receive by email the intructions to connect via zoom.
About Authentic Movement:
In its traditional form, Authentic Movement is a practice that helps you develop a compassionate, non-judgmental understanding of your unique creative voice and essence. In this workshop we use the principles of Authentic Movement in a newly designed approach to help you connect with your partner, appreciate each other’s uniqueness and deepen the love for each other.
