A path to consciousness

Authentic Movement expands and deepens personal awareness and creativity in every respect: through body, psychological and spiritual receptivity, through spontaneous and "self-directed" movement

This work began in the USA in the early 1960’s by Mary Starks Whitehouse, a pioneer of dance movement therapy who had studied the principles of Jungian analytical psychology in Zurich. Initially she named it as “movement in depth”. The practice of Authentic Movement is done with eyes closed in order to listen more closely and deeply to inner impulses of movement. It is a work of great depth that can induce changes in states of consciousness. In its basic form Authentic Movement consists of a relationship between two people or two groups, who alternate in the roles of those who move, ”movers”, and those that observe, “the witness”. Seeing and being seen, sharing of direct experience through verbal and physical language, opening to new psychic spaces in the individual and in the group are part of the practice, as is becoming aware of psychological dynamics that often hinder the perception of oneself and of others.

“When we were young, when we looked at an airplane in the sky the whole body looked up. When we bent to look at an insect, the whole body looked, bent down, then gradually, with only the eyes, with a limited movement of the neck they looked. […] Bodily excitement shattered into separate gestures. The beautiful flow of energy, the sense of connection, has disappeared “
