Authentic Movement is a simple yet profound practice of self-awareness and discovery. Listening to the body, and finding movement from within, we explore the dance of presence, witnessing ourselves and others as awake and open as possible. Find depth and aliveness in and through your body!
Fall/Winter Authentic Movement Groups
Monthly Saturday Group
One Saturday a month, 2:30-5:30pm $270
Sept 25, Oct 23, Nov 13, Dec 4, Jan 15, Feb 12
In this open level group, we will enter together into self-exploration through the practice of Authentic Movement. Finding our way as movers, we will foster the pathways that enable us to listen internally and allow movement to emerge through our bodies. In time a stronger witnessing presence develops, as we see ourselves and one another in open and compassionate ways. This is a wonderful place to begin if you are new to the practice, or to return to over and over again.
Monthly Sunday Group
One Sunday a month, 11am-2:30pm $300
Sept 26, Oct 24, Nov 14, Dec 5, Jan 16, Feb 13
This group is for those with experience in the practice of Authentic Movement, who are interested in deepening connection to self and others. We will move together, witness one another, and keep refining our language that is both expressive and spacious. Over and over we will enter, open, discover and articulate what arises individually and collectively. And by giving over to what is not yet known, we are moved into authenticity, surprise and deep enjoyment.
All groups will be held in Fremont at 226 NW Bowdoin Place. If you would like to register, or for information about Body-Oriented Psychotherapy, contact Susan Baum at (206) 778-9183 or authenticmovement (at) hotmail.com or www.susanbaumtherapy.blogspot.com
