Throughout our lives we long to be seen in our wholeness. Daniel Seigel suggests we “…not only want to be seen, we want to feel felt.”
Authentic Movement is a simple yet profound process between a Mover and a Witness. The Mover closes eyes and follows inner impulses. Listening deeply to inner stirrings the mover brings un/preconscious material through the body into consciousness. The Witness sits eyes open and tracks their own experience in relation to the mover and notices their projections, interpretations and judgements. The Witness holds the consciousness or container particularly in the beginning. The Mover is developing their Inner Witness while the Witness develops their inner Mover. This weekend retreat will offer the opportunity to deepen and glimpse into the full evolution of the form. The opening session will explore the role as a mover developing deep listening while moving in the presence of a non-judgmental witness. Dyadic and Triadic structures will follow so that the witness role develops. The final collective circles, the breath circle and the long circle will illustrate how the form evolves fluidly into an organic ritual that holds the totality of our Human Experience. Both our wounds and healing come through relationship. Authentic Movement is a practice that addresses multiple levels of relationship, self, other and collective.
