Abstract
This study contributes to an understanding of phenomenal consciousness through analysing altered consciousness induced through authentic movement (ACIM). Data derived from qualitative interviews of sixteen participants (eight female, eight male) aged 24–62 years were analysed within Moustakas’ Transcendental Phenomenological Model. Participants’ dance experience varied from less than one year to over 50 years (mean seventeen years). Data yielded the theme of heightened awareness as the essence, with twenty one themes and five processes formulated into a phenomenal descriptive model of ACIM, harmonious within consciousness research across the disciplines of psychology, neuroscience, dance, anthropology and religion.
