Authentic Movement: The Dance of Self
Workshop given by Tina Erfer , BC-DMT, LCAT
Sat-Sun, Dec 14-15, 2013
1:30-6:30 pm, 2 sessions. $200.
Authentic Movement is a simple form in which the mover moves with eyes closed in the presence of a non-judgmental witness. Movers explore spontaneous gestures, movement and stillness, following inner impulses in the present moment. We wait for our inner impulses to move us, so that we are "moved", rather than follow steps from outside ourselves. Discover the richness that this discipline has to offer, as a meditative or spiritual practice, a form of psychotherapy, a way to support creative expression, and a forum for building community.
