Still Looking

by Janet Adler

Twenty years after Looking for Me, Janet Adler produced the first filmed sessions featuring Authentic Movement, an embodied awareness practice with roots in dance, somatic healing practices, and mysticism. In this film, Janet allows us to join her as witness to the spontaneous movement experiences of eight professional women as they explore the relationship between moving and witnessing. Learning how to see and be seen clearly in the presence of one another, the process of compassionate witnessing invites consciousness, enhancing the integration of body and spirit. (29 minutes)

$40 for both Janet Adler films.
