The healing path has a trajectory. Gabrielle Roth, creator of the 5Rhythms Movement Practice, called this The Path of The Wounded Healer. On this path, we mark both where we are and where we want to be and move with that awareness.
In the Heartbeat Map of the 5Rhythms, we investigate what is moving through the shores of the heart. Through understanding the relationship of the emotional polarities we come to respect and appreciate what we have been through.
Without fear, we cannot experience courage. Without anger, we cannot find access to forgiveness. Without love, we cannot experience grief. Without loss we cannot experience or appreciate the full spectrum of joy. Without all these qualities, we cannot know the true nature of compassion.
It is my belief that our sacred task in life is to transform the most difficult things we have been through into our greatest strengths. These are the stories of resiliency, vulnerability and strength. It is here we expand the capacity and potential to love and be loved.
You are invited to this journey of movement and awareness, focused on how emotions more through and transform the heart. Heartbeat is one of the maps of Gabrielle Roth’s living wisdom. I am here to pass this gift to you to be carried in your own bones and blood.
Each session we will be primarily working with the 5Rhythms® Movement Practice as a meditation. We will integrate each movement session with stillness meditation practices. In sitting meditation, we have the opportunity to observe the mind and body at rest through silence.
In 5Rhythms, we engage in mindfulness while moving. The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together mirror the dance of life and support cultivation of well-being and balance.REGISTER TODAY!
ROOTS: A 5RHYTHM LIVE WIRE RITUAL THEATRE LAB
with Lorca Simons
Delivering one’s self back to the artistic nature of the body.
Sculpting spirit into shape,
Writing soul into story,
Dancing mind into the wind and tracing the heart home.
REFLECT: The beauty of our practice from a theatrical prospective is having the opportunity to reflect life, absorbing every morsel of its offerings and gifting it back to the dance over and over again.
RHYTHM: In living this practice as artists we embody the rhythms through every breath we take, through every offering we make. Each gesture an extension of our body, heart, mind, soul & spirit.
RITUAL: As artists we manifest change offering ourselves and our stories from that Live Wire place inside our creative centre.
REAL: Evoking a creative way of seeing and experiencing life from the artistic nature of the body.
ROOTS: The electric landscape of unpredictable possibility that lives and breathes inside our bones.
There is no place like home.
Join us in this poetic landscape as we come together to nourish ourselves and each other, creating an ensemble rooted in aliveness, returning to wonder and recharging possibility.
The 5Rhythms are an art form. Application and vision are one and the same from an artistic perspective, both evoking creative expansion which is at the root of our practice. The beauty of the 5Rhythms from a theatre perspective is, that we have the opportunity to mirror life, absorbing every morsel of its offerings and giving it all back to the dance over and over again.
In living this practice we embody all the rhythms through every breath we take, through every offering we make. Each gesture being an extension from our body, heart, mind, soul and spirit. A poetic landscape of offering. A free fall, a footfall, a live response to what is happening in us, around us and universally.
We as artists manifest change, offering ourselves and our stories from that deep live wire place inside each of us. A vulnerable electric landscape of unpredictable possibility that lives and breathes inside our bones helping others feel deeply, truthfully, with faith, humor, love and trust.
We invite a creative way of experiencing life from the artistic nature of the body.
With all my heart & soul,
