Going through the Wave of 5Rhythms with our bodies is very much like surfing, floating and diving in the ocean waves. Paying attention to our breathing to every single muscle and responding with intuitive grace the currents of the beats and the rip tides of the unexpected arising feelings.
In this committed series we will focus on the mirages of possibilities of movements and the uncovered or underutilized strength of our bodies.
It's a personal and intimate exploration with the same dancers who are committed to show up weekly for six weeks. The committed group will hold a more than ever safe space for the maximum support and benefit to each and everyone of us for the journey to unfold. Everyone is welcomed.
Each class will build on the last, as we go deeper together. In creating a deep and safe space for all, please attend all classes if possible and arrive on time. Sometime there’s circumstances beyond our control and you need to miss class, please let us know ahead of time. However there’s no discount or refund for missed classes.
No Prerequisites. The hours of this class qualify for the Waves requirement for the 5Rhythms Teacher Training.
Wisdom and Wonder: a retreat day of dance outdoors out on 200 acres of stunning private land in North Marin
We will begin with a morning 5 Rhythms dance session taking place outdoors, followed by walking the large land-labyrinth there- listening in deeply to own wisdom. Dance session will take place using silent disco headsets so that there is no noise pollution to the surrounding environment.
There are no steps to learn- just a willingness to dive deeply into the dance and to be with our own experience.
For lunch we will have a delicious farm-to-table shared feast together in the EarthRise restaurant.
In the afternoon we will start with a simple-sharing circle in the shady oak grove, finishing up with another deep-dive dance session out under the cover of the trees.
We will explore the theme of wisdom and wonder throughout the day. Will listen in to the wisdom within our bodies by dropping down out of the brain, coming in close to our somatic sensations, seeing what is happening within us, in each unfolding moment.
We will come into wonder by getting present to the great grace of the living world around us. We will let nature nurture us, recharging, refreshing, renewing ourselves with shared time outdoors- coming back in to close contact with what is wise and wonder-filled, within us and around us.
