A Moving Journal (1994 – 2006), published and co-edited by Annie Geissinger, Joan Webb and Paula Sager, offered a shared space of inquiry for the diverse and international field of Authentic Movement practitioners.


…I often felt as though my body itself was being kneaded by the energy of the potential form, kneaded because of a form– a way of work–that I could never quite see.

– J. Adler

Toward the Unknown: Janet Adler and Annie Geissinger in Conversation

The rhythm, the resilient give and take of the vine as it rises up and down, comes through my legs and into my feet. A soundless ringing seems to rise up, up into the cloudless sky, and again I feel that sense of being held in the space between earth and sky.
