Journey into Trance

New York - 7 Jun 2024 to 9 Jun 2024
Jonathan Horan

"Trance is a tricky place, a place not many understand. It’s a mindful state that only happens when you get out of your way and fall into your true self so deeply that something inside clicks and you are simultaneously being and witnessing yourself.“ -- Gabrielle Roth

We all long for a place to call home, a place where we feel totally connected and at peace. But there is no home unless we find it in ourselves. The way home is a journey into trance. Trance is soul food, an injection of spirit that can carry us for days and weeks through subways and supermarkets, head-trips and heartaches.

In trance we move into the bigger picture. And from this vantage point we can see into the dark of our own hearts and let go of all the things that haunt us, relinquish them, turn them over to the Great Spirit. Sometimes, we are moved by the spirit of wolf, sometimes we are moved by the spirit of river or the spirit of fear or father. If we let go it takes us past our ordinary self into our luminous self. Any energy fully embodied can be a gateway.

Every time we hold our breath, we are holding back the Great Spirit and all its awesome power. But it is the very presence of that power we all deeply crave. We crave it because it is a catalyst; it shakes us up, keeps us real. It takes a lot of preparation to let go of being the mover and allow the self to be moved. In a million unspoken ways, we will be tested and rewarded.

This weekend is devoted to unwinding the mind, moving through specific maps and meditations that teach us how to more deeply traverse the world of trance. It is also an opportunity to deepen our 5Rhythms practice and connect with its roots.


SOUL CANVAS - Exploring Movement, Creative Writing, and Art.

New York - 28 Jun 2024 to 30 Jun 2024
Tata Lebanidze (Tata Leban)

 5Rhythms® Soul Canvas

   Since I was a little girl, I've always had a passion and my ways of expression, as I was super shy and introverted. I started drawing and painting when I was in kindergarten, expressing stories in my drawings, which continued throughout my life and led me to art school. I graduated in fine arts and design.

 Meanwhile, as long as I can remember, I have been journaling my entire life.

As a child, my diary was my imaginary friend that was always there to listen to my everyday life.

Growing up, I started writing poems, expressing my heart and emotions through them. I always found refuge in fully expressing my heart without guilt and shame. 

Growing up, dancing through life's challenges, I discovered the 5Rhythms practice, which opened up so many doors for me to fully spread my wings. Movement became the catalyst for transformation, leading me into self-discovery and the alchemy of my body, heart, and mind, reconnecting with my soul repeatedly.

In my personal healing journey, these are my main healing tools:

Art, writing, and dance that keeps me going in life.

It has been a long-time vision to create this offering at the right time, and here I am, fully feeling in my body and soul that this is a right time, to create this container of soul poetry that comes alive in movement, in poetry, and in art, with no rules—just a flow of energy, the frequency that moves through our being.


Welcome to the 5Rhythms® Soul Canvas workshop. 

An immersive journey into the realms of movement, poetry, and artistry.

In this transformative experience, I invite you to explore the synergy between the fluidity of dance, the eloquence of poetry, and the boundless expression of visual art.

What to Expect:

1. Dance Your Essence:

- Engage in the dynamic 5Rhythms practice, a movement meditation journey through the cosmology of the 5Rhythms map. Explore and unlock stories and emotions, and learn to articulate, embody, and ritualize the poetry of the soul through dance..

2. Expressive Poetry Sessions:

- Delve into the art of soulful poetry writing. Guided sessions will encourage you to articulate your emotions, experiences, and dreams through the written word. Discover the power of poetic expression as a pathway to self-discovery.

3. Visual Art Exploration:

-Tap into your creativity with visual art exercises.

Embark on a journey of self-discovery and expression through visual art exploration.

Whether it's drawing or mixed media.

(We will only use pencils, crayons, and markers—whichever you bring.) 

Allow the colors, shapes, and forms of your soul to be expressed visually, reflecting the depth of your emotions and creating a unique art piece that mirrors your inner landscape.

4. Integration of Movement and Art:

-Experience the beautiful fusion of movement and art creation. Use the dance floor as your canvas and let your body be the brush.

Explore the interplay between physical and visual expression.

5. Soulful Community Connection:

- Connect with like-minded souls on a shared journey of self-discovery. The workshop provides a supportive and nurturing space where participants can share insights, stories, and creative expressions, fostering a sense of community and shared inspiration.

6. No Rules, Just Flow:

- Embrace the freedom of expression with no rigid rules. Allow the energy to flow naturally, guiding you through a journey of self-exploration and creative discovery. This workshop is about tapping into your authenticity and letting your unique creative voice shine.

5Rhythms Soul Canvas is a unique opportunity to integrate movement, poetry, and visual art, creating a multidimensional expression of your innermost self. Join us in this exploration of the soul's canvas, where every movement and stroke tells a story, and every participant contributes to a collective masterpiece of embodied creativity.

   This is going to be Waves Workshop - which also counts as a pre-requisite for those who are on a teacher training path.
