When the great swing has taken an individual into the world of symbolic mysteries, nothing comes of it, nothing can come of it, unless it has been associated with the earth, unless it has happened when that individual was in the body... And so individuation can only take place if you first return to the body, to your earth, only then does it become true.
— C.G. Jung

Foundational Studies

Authentic Movement: Origins, Theory, Practice


Dyad - In supervised sessions, partners met regularly to study the dynamic relationship between mover and witness. Learners explored ways to connect their inner experience to language. (Ten hours of dyad time)


Group - During five weekends, learners met in the studio to explore the boundaries between the individual, the dyad, and the group. Shared stories and myths emerged as an amplification of the collective.


Seminar- Each weekend included a three-hour seminar. Learners had the opportunity to articulate and integrate their movement experience through reading, theoretical discussion, artistic expression and the development of a personal portfolio. Linda Aaron-Cort, Joan Chodorow, Tina Stromsted joined as guest lecturers.
