Anytime, anywhere, under any circumstance, this is our essential beginning.TAGS: 5 rhythms, 5Rhythms, 5Rhythms OneTribe, 5Rhythms Teacher Association, 5RTA, Chaos, Conscious Dance, dance movement therapy, ecstatic dance, five rhythms, Flowing, gabrielle roth, Gestalt Therapy, jonathan horan, Lyrical, Maps to Ecstasy, Medicine Dance, meditation, movement medicine, moving meditation, on-demand, online, Open floor, shamanic dance, Staccato, Stillness, sweat your prayers, The Moving Center
