Mindfulness in Motion:
A Path to Authentic Presence
Suzi Tortora, Ed.D, BC-DMT, LCAT, LMHC, CMA
Authentic Movement is a type of meditation that involves listening to your body and allowing it to move or not move; to ‘speak’ the present moment. In the workshop the experience takes place in pairs. One person moves while the other person witnesses from a place of respect and attunement. The witness never assumes s/he knows what the other’s experience is, rather s/he attends to the images and sensations that arise within, while witnessing.
Dr. Tortora is a board certified dance movement therapist, Laban Nonverbal Movement Analyst, and specialist in the field of infancy mental health and development. She has collaborated with psychoanalysts in the treatment of infants and adults. In addition to her private practice she is an internationally known speaker about dance therapy, and nonverbal analysis of infants, children and families. She is the author of The Dancing Dialogue: Using the communicative power of movement with young children. New York: Paul H. Brookes, 2006.
