Authentic MovementRead more and order from Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Description: Authentic Movement, an exploration of the unconscious through movement, was largely defined by the work of Mary Starks Whitehouse, Janet Adler and Joan Chodorow. The basic concepts of Authentic Movement are expressed for the first time in one volume through interviews and conversations with these important figures, and their key papers. They emphasize the importance of movement as a means of communication, particularly unconscious or ‘authentic’ movement, emerging when the individual has a deep, self-sensing awareness – an attitude of ‘inner listening’. Such movement can trigger powerful images, feelings and kinesthetic sensations arising from the depths of our stored childhood memories or connecting our inner selves to the transcendent. In exploring Authentic Movement these questions are asked:
- How does Authentic Movement differ from other forms of dance and movement therapy?
- How may Authentic Movement be experienced?
