Authentic Movement is a newly emerging discipline of kinetic meditation through which the participant can learn to engage with a direct experience of herself, the group and the transpersonal. This is an experience beyond words and concepts. It can assist in developing body awareness, and body-mind-spirit connections. By gaining access and giving creative expression to inner worlds the invisible becomes visible or "authentic‟ as Californian founder Mary Starkes Whitehouse (1979) claims.
