AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT GROUP
Cultivate Presence, Joy and Aliveness
"You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves."
-- 'Wild Geese' by Mary Oliver - New & Selected Poems (Harcourt Brace) --

Authentic Movement provides an opportunity to explore the art of relationship with youself and with others.
In the spirit of a meditative practice, Authentic Movement is a way to explore one’s inner life and how it unfolds through tracking and expressing what appears from moment to moment in one’s body.
This process happens as we participate in a circle of movers and witnesses who are developing compassionate presence within themselves and toward each other. We cultivate the quality of such presence, as each person learns to distinguish between seeing and judging.
Encouraging trust, we share our reflections with each other in a refined practice that invites body consciousness into language.
This helps us develop our capacity to be with our experiences in a way that deepens, opens and facilitates a journey of increasing intimacy and healing for ourselves and the world around us.
