Authentic Movement as Practice and as Therapy

Authentic Movement, rooted in the field of dance/movement therapy, has evolved into a unique discipline with its own integrity informing therapeutic process, contemplative practice, creative process and the healing of body, mind and soul. This retreat/study group is an opportunity for the in-depth study of the discipline of Authentic Movement as therapy and as practice. We will immerse in the practice of Authentic Movement during the day and will gather after dinner to study and discuss the questions that arise from direct experience.

Enrollment Requirements

This intensive retreat/study group is designed for trained clinicians with a minimum of five years of experience in Authentic Movement and several years of post-graduate clinical experience. If you have not previously studied with Zoë, a telephone interview is required.
