Embody Freedom Practice

The Embody Freedom Practice (EFP) draws heavily from (but is not defined or limited by) the rich practices of Contemplative Dance & Authentic Movement. Each Embody Freedom Practice session includes:

  • Exploration of spontaneous movement, contact improvisation and vocal / sound improvisation integrated with conscious witnessing practice;
  • Creative forming through drawing, journaling, working with clay, etc;
  • Deep listening and reflection.

An ongoing peer-based practice group currently meets weekly in Providence.

This is NOT a drop in practice– the depth of the container requires long term weekly commitment as well as considerable vulnerability, risk taking, strong boundaries, curiosity, confidentiality and a high degree of emotional and spiritual maturity. While no authentic movement experience is required, participants must have significant experience in contemplative practice and/or other embodied movement disciplines. Participants must also be comfortable with and open to exploring physical contact.

NOTE: If you are interested in exploring this practice but either a) would like more context or experience under your belt or b) would prefer more one on one support, please consider beginning with Embody Freedom 1-to-1 sessions with Rebecca.


“If our sanity is to be strong and flexible, there must be occasional periods for the expression of completely spontaneous movement . . . for following any motion to which the organism as a whole seems to be inclined.”             –Alan Watts
