Authentic Movement

What is Authentic Movement?

Authentic Movement (AM) offers a space to be present in the here and now, to arrive at yourself, to find a break in everyday life and to find space to move what wants to be moved.

The form in which we practice gives you the possibility to invite the not-knowing and to dive into your own flow of movement that arises out of the moment. An external witness accompanies this process. (S)he offers a non-judgmental presence to give you an invitation to show yourself in this moment in the way how you are right now. As a mover you follow the impulses of your own body letting the 'not-knowing' take the lead, allowing yourself to discover new facets of yourself. Accompanying people with your attention as a witness develops understanding about being and life. Writing and talking about your experiences in a non-judgmental way allows you to change your usual perspectives and habits.

What is Authentic Movement?

Authentic Movement creates a space in which the mover enters the not-knowing. The mover asks herself and the space which movement she should make next, which inner impulses she should follow.

At the same time they are expressed and witnessed by the mover with her movements in the space. The witness gives her attention and presence to the mover. In the further development of the practice of Authentic Movement by Janet Adler, there is a process of reflection following the movement time. Through certain forms of exchange, this creates a space for exploring individual and collective processes.

"Authentic movement as a path enables experience of being part of a collective body as well as an individual body, and also both at the same time." Cornelia Schmitz
