Authentic Movement


Authentic Movement was developed by Mary Whitehouse, a dancer and psychotherapist who applied C.G, Jung's method of Active Imagination to movement. The form of Authentic Movement explores the relationship between a mover and a witness - the process of seeing oneself, and seeing another. The mover, eyes closed, learns to follow the deep impulses of his/her unique movement, emotions, memories, images and thoughts. While watching the mover, the witness tracks her/his responses to the mover, as a compassionate witness. The attention brought about by the relationship between the mover and witness allows for creative, growthful and spiritual aspects of both to emerge.
