Alexa is a clinical creative arts therapist who is passionate about combining creative and somatic modalities to promote self-understanding, connection and healing. Authentic Movement is the heart piece of her inquiry into intimacy, authenticity, belonging, uniqueness, presence, the unconscious and mystical experiences.
Dancing the way to Human Wholeness
The practice of Authentic Movement can be considered a movement meditation based on a collaboration between a mover and a witness. In the presence of a compassionate witness the mover closes their eyes and listens to the inner stirrings, expressing them in spontaneous movement impulses. The experience is contextualized through reflective practices of writing & drawing, and shared through mindful, non-judgemental speech.
Both mover and witness practice deepening awareness of energetic phenomena, the body, the psyche and Self.
