In this one-day workshop we dance deeper into each rhythm by dancing 1 flowing wave, 1 staccato wave, 1 chaos wave, 1 lyrical wave and 1 stillness wave. We are going to move through this movement meditation, reflect, dancing by ourselves and together. Spending intimate time with 5Rhythms, present on the dance floor and in life.
"Movement is my medium and my metaphor. I know that if a wave of energy is allowed to complete itself, it yields a whole new wave, and in fact that is all I really know. Riding these waves means joining the cosmic dance that, as Dante says, 'moves the sun and the other stars.'"

5Rhythms summer vacation movement lab
The 7th summer movement retreat at magical and stunning Gotland. This year is the overall theme is variation of embodiment.
We will explore our inner and outer nature, the four different elements. flowing - earth, staccato - fire, chaos - water, lyrical - air, stillness - ether. The elements are known as resources in most cultures and traditions like at the indigenous people, in yoga and in shamanic practice, as well in the maps of the 5Rhythms. The purpose is to sense and experience how each element can be a resource for our awareness when moving with body and emotions.
We will explore the endless possibilities to move through a 5Rhythms wave (movement cycle.) The invitation is to bring creativity and curiosity to our habitual ways of moving to expand our movement language. We will also investigate the relational aspect of moving with me, you and us.
Moving with the language and landscape of the 5Rhythms map is direct, profound and real. It’s a way to align with aliveness, reconnect and empower our body, mind and heart.
