To avoid disappointment, please book your place on the course 72 hours prior to its commencement.

Authentic Movement is a form of moving meditation based on the relationship between the mover and the witness. This one-day workshop introduces the concept of the inner witness, one of the basic elements of this practice. As you practice mindfulness in movement, you'll learn how to track your inner-sensations, spontaneous movement expression and moments of stillness whilst moving in the presence of a witness.

Course structure

  • We start with a brief introduction to the theory and history of the practice of authentic movement followed by an exploration of what do we mean by inner witness in this practice.
  • You'll then be invited to explore the concept of inner witness by engaging in your own embodied explorations.
  • We'll then look at some of the landmarks of the authentic movement practice in preparation to work in dyads and the larger circle.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course, you'll:

  • Understand the concept of inner witness in the practice of Authentic Movement.
  • Learn how to track and identify your inner sensations and spontaneous movement expression in the present moment.
  • Learn how to move mindfully in the presence of a witness.
