Authentic Movement Ongoing Group Sessions
2023-2024 • All Genders
Authentic Movement is a practice that needs to be lived in order to be comprehended. In the ongoing groups, though your experience is still individual, we all share the power of being together in community to find healing through movement.
We begin with a rediscovery of your physical self through a series of semi-guided, warmup explorations.
We then progress to creating a space where you are free. Free to listen to your body, free to follow the guidance of your soul. In this space there are no rules, except those that you create; there is no obligation, except to yourself.
In the group sessions you are the mover and I am the witness, and there is a specific time for movement / stillness with the eyes closed. After each exploration, there is additional time for the movers to use journaling, drawing, sound, clay, or movement with open eyes to integrate the experience, before we all come together and share in our final circle.
By participating in the group you will be able to find :
healing for your inner child
release from embodied wounds
connection with your higher self and true desires
Experience has shown that the major benefits of this practice come when being part of a committed group in which each mover is opening up themselves to a process. That is why your commitment to the entire or part of a cycle is required to be part of the group.

What Movers Say
"The Authentic Movement group is a space I can come to for spiritual growth and practice
where I am able to engage with myself and my process in the presence of a witness.
Having a group to attend regularly is an ongoing exploration,
and it allows me to feel more aligned, in touch, supported, and connected.
After each encounter I feel more self-accepting, more grounded, and more peaceful."
— Lauren, Psychotherapist
