This article provides a rationale for how the discipline of authentic movement can be employed to support the development of an ecological self. The way humans treat animals and our alienation from nature results in the deeply held separation between humans and the nature. Humans disregard the interdependence we have with the earth, acting unethically without thought for the ecological damage ensuing, destroying our own habitat. The argument here, based on a phenomenological perspective, is for engaging, through the discipline of authentic movement, with movement and our inner witness sufficiently to deeply connect with nature and acknowledge a conscience to act more responsibly and mindfully in the context climate catastrophe.
