Workshops & Class Series

Authentic Movement Foundations

6 Session Series facilitated by Jane Blount, HHP

When: 2nd & 4th Mondays, 7 – 9 PM (May 8, 22, June 12, 26, July 10, 24)

RSVP Required

Center, enter, uncover, and deepen conscious embodiment through the healing and transformative practice of Authentic Movement. This profound discipline, involving inner-initiated movement, with eyes closed in the receptive presence of a witness connects us to the inner wisdom of the body.

In this foundations course we will explore the elements of Authentic Movement: seeing and being seen, the roles of mover and witness (both inner and outer), how to connect with one’s authentic movement, silent witnessing, gesture witnessing, verbal witnessing; conscious use of language; various forms of practice such as dyads, the breathing circle, and the long circle.

Stillness, movement, rest, play, silence, sound, laughter, tears, and more may all be part of the experience. There are no movements to learn, only one’s own to discover. In each session there will be time for reflection through journaling, drawing, and/or speaking to integrate your experience.
