GODDESS WITHIN – Authentic Movement Workshop and Retreat in Italy


Authentic Movement Workshop

The Goddess Within Workshop creates a space to connect to, discover and honour your inner feminin aspects through the work with Goddesses of different cultures from all over the World. 

19th and 20th of MARCH 2022


The Goddess Within Workshop creates a space to connect to, discover and honour your inner feminin aspects through the work with Goddesses of different cultures from all over the World. 

The work itself happens through Authentic Movement  which is a movement practice that offers a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious.

The form of Authentic Movement explores the relationship between mover and witness, being seen and seeing. With eyes closed, the mover listens inwardly and finds a movement arising from inner cellular impulses. Gradually the invisible becomes visible, the inaudible becomes audible, and explicit form is given to the content of direct experience.

The witness brings a receptive quality of clear attention to the mover. The witness is mindful of the inner world of sensation and meaning, of images, thoughts and emotions arising. The mover and the witness together can achieve a level of perception of self and other that furthers  deep respect and empathy. You will experience both roles.

This beautiful practice will be happening in the context of a Goddess that you pick for yourself in the beginning of your movement session. Every Goddess offers a message and a quality that you will integrate through your authentic movement and your witnessing.

  • Acquiring the practice of Authentic Movement
