Course Description: This class is designed to support the embodiment and resilience of counselors in their clinical work with clients by supporting mindful embodiment and processing of somatic counter-transference. Authentic Movement is a practice in which a person moves with eyes closed in the presence of a witness. The mover allows her attention to “drop in” to the embodied experience of sensation, impulse, emotion, and imagery, allowing movement to unfold from a deep inner wisdom. The witness holds the space by keeping eyes open and creating a safe container for the movement to unfold. By coming into contact with ones own embodied experience with curiosity, openness, and acceptance, we are better equipped to work with the somatic countertransference present in the therapeutic relationship.
