A 5-week Group Series – Mixed Level Class
with Susan Bauer
Give yourself this time to settle within, and listen deeply to your own body wisdom.
This group is for those new to Authentic Movement, as well as those with previous experience in the practice. (Read more about Authentic Movement here.)
In this series, you’ll learn basics of the practice that allow you to move with both mindful awareness and a spontaneous responsiveness to your own inner impulses for movement and / or stillness.
In each session, you will have an opportunity to move, with time afterward for processing on your own through writing, drawing, or resting. We will then have a sharing circle, with each mover speaking first, followed by brief witness feedback provided by me. This is the journey of Authentic Movement, a form practiced by many since its development by Janet Adler and others (inspired by the work of founder Mary Starks Whitehouse in the 1950’s). We will open and close with a brief meditation.
This small, intimate group will be limited to 6 participants to support each participant in the practice.
Susan has practiced Authentic Movement since 1984, and has studied with Janet Adler, founder of the Discipline of Authentic Movement, in groups and individual work. Susan has facilitated Authentic Movement groups in the U.S. and Asia, and continues to be inspired by supporting others in this deep and rewarding experience as part of their own personal journey.

Here’s what previous participants have had to say:
“I have found Authentic Movement to be a deep and powerful practice. It’s given me the space to learn more about what is really going on internally, to effectively process challenging issues, and to integrate my body into my emotional and spiritual work.
As a witness and teacher, Susan is extremely intuitive and is impeccable in her approach. She sets healthy boundaries and offers clear, objective insights. I have worked with her for over five years and look forward to many more!”
–Laura, Fundraising Consultant
“Authentic Movement has made a tremendous difference in my life. It truly has helped me to experience life in more satisfying and creative ways. Susan creates a safe, comfortable space where I feel truly welcome. For me, a big part of the magic of Authentic Movement comes through Susan and the thoughtful, heartfelt way she leads her group and private sessions.”
–Diana, CEO and Massage Therapist
To Susan, with eternal gratitude for your witnessing of my gradual awakening to embodied presence. Love blossoms for all in the interplay of your shining light and my self-remembrance.
