Wheel of Life 2020
The dance of life is a cycle of seasons. A repetitive process itself.
Grow, flower, let go, rest. And again.
No lineal time, but circulating. A wheel. A life.
We dance through the year and attune to the rhythm of the sun. Often this rhythm is coincident with your life energy and therefore each of these seasonal shifts holds vital information for your life journey.
Basic tools we work with are the 5Rhythms & Systemic Ritual.
Every weekend is independent from the others, you can join in any season.
Although we dance all the 5Rhythms, the theme’s come from a specific rhythm & season.
Alive - Spring - East - 21/22 march
A dance as a sunrise. That fragile morning light where everything is still possible. Theme’s we dance with are curiosity, resilience and unfolding.
Blossom - Summer - South - 27/28 june
The sun is on it highest, the day’s are long and in the wheel we stand in the middle of our lives, in full blossom. Passion, strength and connection are the words here.
Surrender - Autumn - West - 26/27 sept
The sun sets, harvest is in, the day is nearly gone. Time to soften your defenses, put down the armor. Relax, let go and enjoy the work that you’ve done.
Dream - Winter - North - 12/13 dec
The night of the year. Stillness, pause, rest. A time of introspection and contemplation. Breathe.REGISTER TODAY!
For the ninth time we're offering the wonderful combination of dance and sweatlodge this time around midwinter 2020.
We will combine the 5Rhythms dance meditation practice with the ancient sweatlodge ritual during a weekend at beautiful Kura Waka’s. Inviting the energy of midsummer to make visible what wants to be seen and also what wants to hide. Listening to the wisdom of our body and unique movement guided by the 5Rhythms Waves map Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness and to embrace all that you are!!
The time is now….
The healing power of sweat was known by ancient tribes who provided sweatlodges. Gabrielle Roth the founder of the 5Rhytms was also aware of this.
"To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweatlodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy.” - Gabrielle Roth
The 5Rhythms are workout and meditation for everybody who loves to dance. It’s a simple and deep way of movement healing for body and mind, heart and soul. The 5Rhythms create a Wave and invite you to listen to your body, bring your unique energy into movement and to (re)discover your natural flow and ways to express it.
The sweatlodge ceremony is an ancient old purification ritual within many indigenous cultures. The most wel known is maybe the ones from the North American Indians. The sweatlodge tradition that Michaela shares is based on the Chippewa Cree tradition, been passed on to her by the Native Elder Ron Evans, and has been experienced as a warm blanket.
Feel embraced in the sweatlodge
Time for healing, prayer, blessings, songs, giving thanks
Where the stones are our Grandfather and the water Grandmother
They who come together in their sacred love making
To embrace us in the healing steam
The smell of for ever green
Welcome in the Circle
WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO DANCE WITH YOU!
