Authentic Movement - Maria Flegas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Authentic movement is a contemplative practice of moving from a place of impulse~ most often done with the eyes closed, and with a witness. This form is free from agenda or interruption ~ allowing a deep un~sequencing and revealing of the inner animal and mystery. It can offer liberation and sharing of the stories lying below the surface~ yielding to the language of the soft tissues. This form provides a place of deep and delicious satisfaction through inner contact and integration. By engaging what Carl Jung called "the active imagination" you may encounter image, sensation, memory, insight or an awakened dream state. Come dive in! Trust your impulses, be held in an unconditional space, and allow the magic in the environment to infuse you too.
Maria Flegas has been dancing since the womb. She is influenced by her Greek ancestral (ecstatic) dance, as well as many other forms such as Butoh, Yoruban, Modern, Tribal Fusion, and Acro Dance. As a former US gymnast and circus artist, her spirit has a propensity to fly as well as draw influence from deep in her body, the earth~ and stories of origin. Maria loves to facilitate Authentic Movement ~wherein the raw, uninterrupted impulse of the body can emerge from the softest of tissues. She also draws from elemental, ancestral and imagistic influences in facilitating Butoh and Ritual Movement. She is especially excited about working in different landscapes and building a fun and adventurous community experience.
