An introduction to Authentic Movement and Therapeutic Presence

These single day workshops are for those interested in joining the Diploma Module that starts in October 2024, in Devon. Details can be seen here.

The day will be focused on experiencing the practice of Authentic Movement with an opportunity for immersion in your own movement process and an introduction to skills of inner witnessing of movement.

About Authentic Movement

Authentic Movement is a contemplative movement practice which has been evolved by Janet Adler and is a therapeutic and meditative movement practice. As in the discipline of mindfulness meditation, we seek to pay attention to our direct experience, moment by moment, witnessing the sensations, feelings and movement impulses which arise into consciousness.

Therapeutic Presence

In IBMT we integrate the practice of Authentic Movement to support developing presence. With continued practice the ability to be present develops and supports cultivating a therapeutic aspect in client sessions where they can feel witnessed without judgement.
