2019 Authentic Movement retreat – Burdag, Poland

Discipline of Authentic Movement Retreat

(for those with Authentic Movement or other psychotherapeutic/somatic experience)

30 May-2 June 2019

In this Authentic Movement retreat, we will work with developing skills and working at depth. We will work with the Discipline of Authentic Movement which is Janet Adler’s current way of offering Authentic Movement. It is a ritual practice of developing embodied consciousness as a moving practice. Over the four days you have the opportunity to explore and deepen your knowledge and experience of both moving, witnessing, silent witnessing, speaking witnessing and integral witnessing – all aspects of the Discipline.

This is a depth practice which asks us to give time in order to attend and to be present to all experience, to all that we are in movement and stillness, and to work with language to find ways to articulate that experience as both mover and witness. It is relational in that we attend to both our inner world and to the witnessing other. We learn to speak in the collective circle, to listen deeply and speak from the truth of our experience. It is a ritual practice where we to attend to our inner bodily experience when we are movers and witnesses. We cultivate compassionate presence as we allow experience to unfold in our moment to moment moving and witnessing.

This retreat is suitable for those with experience of the practice of Authentic Movement or related somatic practices as well as those with psychotherapeutic experience. It may be of interest to those in the fields of psychotherapy, movement and other creative arts, spiritual and mystical practices.

Application is by short biographical letter of introduction. Please outline your journey or experience and interest in AM along with any psychotherapy experience; this may be followed by an informal interview.

Although these are not psychotherapeutic groups, the nature of the work requires an openness to the symbolic and to unconscious processes. As a Jungian Analyst, Focusing Trainer and a faculty member of Janet Adler’s Circles of Four programme to become a Teacher of the Discipline of Authentic Movement, Jane has the skills to contain and ensure the group’s safety when working at such depth.
