Inspired by Carl Jung's practice of Active Imagination, Authentic Movement uses movement as a path to discovering and expressing your whole self. Connect to exactly where you are in the moment and follow your internal impulses to move or be still. The practice looks like everything from gentle movement exploration, improvised dance, to deep rest. There is time for creative practice as integration after each movement session including writing, drawing, collage and time to share in a small group. (This practice was originated by Mary Starks Whitehouse in the 1950's, originally called, "Movement in Depth.")

"Authentic Movement with Tiffany opened up an enormous amount of freedom and possibility that I didn’t realize I needed and wanted.  The practice of tuning in to how I want to move my body or rest my body at any given moment has helped me learn to listen more deeply to my inner impulses, needs and desires and helped me access my own intuition, creativity, playfulness, joy, and authenticity. "
