FACILITATOR: GERMAINE FRASER, RN, MA
Authentic Movement (AM) is the sublime movement and sound exploration of self: one’s spirit, one’s creative capacities, one’s unique journey and purpose. Through listening to one’s innate movement intelligence and following those impulses, one’s sometimes surprising and always curious universe is revealed.
This workshop is an opportunity to study more deeply the witnessing and mover roles. There will be an introduction to the long circle, ‘breathing’ circle, exercises in tracking movement in oneself and others and witnessing exercises, as well as concepts and framing skills to help better understand the practice. There will be plenty of time for using art and writing materials and for verbal processing.
A full day of experiencing the form is to luxuriate in the care of oneself, to open one’s universe to that which is more subtle, quiet and opaque; time to stay in that evocative and embodied place for long periods of time. The internal private life has an opportunity to create an intimacy and understanding with our more public, external self.
