"One of the most potent avenues I have found for recovering the body/psyche/soul connection is Authentic Movement. The practice can provide a powerful avenue to engage the unconscious through bodily expression, bringing clarity and healing to our woundednesss and allowing exploration and expression of the new life energy seeking to emerge.
The journey through life is not simply metaphorical, psychological, or spiritual, but also concretely experienced in the body. Together with our dreams and intuition, the body can act as a compass to guide our lives." ~Tina Stromsted
We'll explore such questions as:
What is Authentic Movement?
How does it help us heal?
Why have we been so disconnected from our bodies?
How can we return to a sense of home in our body?
