About Authentic Movement…
The AM is an approach movement, which allows access to the source of that moves within us, and what we can remember to freely express our creativity. Eyes closed, we welcome the sensations, images, impulses which emerge gestures and movements. He / she who moves experienced this inner listening and movement during an agreed period, under the gaze of others. A witness chosen in advance is particularly attentive to the experience, while observing itself that it generates. The witness used container to deploy safely. Another important phase of the process is the result of a moment of silence, a time to write or draw, before making a verbal sharing.

For people in the scene, Authentic Movement is a tool developed to monitor presence, free of judgment, the creative process of the unconscious to its manifestation.

Her journey through different approaches of the movement was the anchor to the Authentic Movement (AM) in 1987. Since then, she has trained with Janet Adler. AM is part of his personal and professional life. She sees this form as a physical practice that brings more presence to oneself and the other. Her psychotherapy training allows her to safely accompany participants, both individually and as a group, in this deep and transformative process.
