Moriah Moser began her work in the Discipline of Authentic Movement with Janet Adler in 1978. Beginning with four years of individual sessions before attending group sessions and retreats, Moriah has continued to study with Janet at intervals over the last 35 years as the discipline has evolved. Although Janet has continued to be her primary teacher, she has also studied with Alton Wasson, Carolyn Sadeh, and Joan Chodorow. Moriah presently travels to Galiano Island to attend retreats with Janet.
Other important teachers include, Mara Capy, a Jungian Movement Therapist; Zuleikah Bethane, a Sufi Dancer and teacher; Christopher Bamford, an Anthroposophical author and meditation teacher, and Oh Shinnah Fastwolf, a Native American Elder. In 1993, Moriah was initiated into the Sisters of the Violet Flame, a Mystery School dedicated to the study and teaching of spiritual healing and wisdom practices.
Moriah offers private sessions in the Discipline of Authentic Movement and is available for supervision and retreats. After retiring from twenty years as a Waldorf Teacher, practicing witness consciousness in the classroom as her students developed from age 6 to age 14, Moriah has now rededicated herself to her movement practice and teaching. She also offers, The Inner Dance, a class she first developed in 1980, which includes the ground form of the Discipline of Authentic Movement, ancient wisdom practices, art, and song. For Moriah, this class has always been a vessel to hold and integrate questions and insights arising out of the discipline.
Presently, mystical practice, somatic healing arts, and Initiation inform Moriah as her own deep transformation continues. She integrates pastel painting into her meditative practice. She draws on her many years of study with teachers in spiritual traditions to develop a way of teaching in which the essence of sacred teachings is distilled and refined, determining the core of her work in a way that allows integration, balance, and presence.
Moriah Moser received her BA from Trinity College and a Masters Degree in Dance Movement Therapy from Antioch/New England. Moriah returned to Antioch/New England and received a Waldorf Teacher training degree in 1994. For the past four years she has been a student at The New Chartres School of Wisdom University. Her Master thesis, entitled “A Phenomenological Study of Guided Imagery”, can be obtained from Antioch/New England.
