“I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me, And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.” -- Robert Louis Stevenson
We all know how it feels to just not want to get out of bed in the morning, to slog through the day, and finally fall back into bed. What if instead we could turn our inertia into art, our resistance into momentum? To take a chance to dance out loud the tension in a jawbone or the shoulders, embody our stick figures and move out of them fully fleshed? To give up control, dive beneath the surface and melt the ice that casts the shadows we may often find ourselves moving through?
Shadow Play is a moving meditation into what’s moving us and what’s holding us back, down, and out. A dancing investigation into what’s hiding in the shadows and how we can tease whatever it is into motion, leaving heaviness behind as we dance into effortless. It’s an opportunity to bemuse our shadows and let light be our muse. Rhythm by rhythm, step by step, Wave after Wave.
Join us on the playground. It won't be the same without you, and your shadows.
Dancing with the Ancestors
Join Abby Kenny and Sara Mains
+5Rhythms ~ Cacao Ceremony ~ Ritual +
Deep into the forest we will gather to dance with the Ancestors, not only those of blood lines but our soul lines as well
~ opening the gates through movement and ceremony.
We will dance through our linage between now and then.
We will dance through the web of cultures, traditions and the array of medicine and heartache that resides in each of us.
We will dance with our feet on the earth and the many feet that have danced upon her.
We will dance with our mothers, fathers and their mothers and fathers.
In honor of our ancestors, may we join and dance between the worlds, spiraling back to where beginning meets the end.
5Rhythms® practice calls us through movement to remember and ignite the stories in our bodies, to move through, receive, release and embody the dynamic experience of being human.

Cacao Ceremony is anchored in the medicine of the plant world, the cacao that we drink offers direct connection to the heart and sensual pulse of the earth.
