5Rhythms Spring Day Retreat
Foundations for Healing and Well-being
Movement Meditation and Deep Nurture in Nature & Community
with Mati Vargas-Gibson
"If you put the body in motion the psyche will heal itself"
"Each of us has the power and responsibility to heal ourselves, to be our own medicine man or woman.Awakening our innate powers of being, loving, knowing, seeing, and healing involves ongoing work at all levels and in all dimensions of our self." Gabrielle Roth
Last weekend the Lodge, the Land and the Labyrinth at Springhill Retreat Center held us beautifully in a day of deep dances, spaciousness, stillness and joy, together in community and companionship between humans, land spirits, animals, and love. It was really magical, so we are doing it again!
Join us as we move into Spring and dedicate a full day to dancing towards a full state of well-being. Movement will activate our physical body. The land will nourish our spirit. The group will share attention and love needed for our souls. We will create a deep movement inquiry about the places in ourselves that are in need of healing, and use the dance as medicine for regaining wellness and balance, for gathering all our life force back in order to act in the world from a place of wholeness as we step into the active days of Spring and beyond.
The lodge at Springhill Retreat Center in Richardson will provide us with a spacious yet intimate container for our dances. An outdoor labyrinth (weather permitting) for moving in nature into the center of ourselves and out back into the dance. A kitchen to share a meal. And a fire for a closing ceremonial ritual.
5Rhythms is a simple yet potent movement practice for our times. It is a practice because we enter each dance as entering a mystery for the first time. We practice trusting our feet, listening to and expressing our heart, letting go and surrendering to the beat, shapeshifting into the lightness of being and emptying into the essence of being.
We do this when we dance every Wave. And when we can do Wave after Wave in the same day, we receive the blessings of profound dance medicine.
I hope you join us!
Live Wire is a movement based theater lab, a dynamic, raw experimental base where anything can happen. A poetic landscape that is at the root and heart of 5Rhythms practice.

Lorca is a certified 5Rhythms facilitator dedicated to the creation of physical theatre that is both interactive and transformative.
She was born and raised in Texas where she grew up in her father’s experimental theatre company Hip Pocket Theatre. As an artistic associate she has been involved in producing original works for 47 years. A graduate of The University of North Carolina School of the Arts theatre conservatory. Educated in both experimental and traditional theatre. She has blazed through productions in New York City from Off Broadway to fringe, as well as television and film.
Lorca followed her instincts to the unique directing vibration known as Gabrielle Roth and a 19 year creative collaboration bloomed. She studied and trained with Gabrielle from the mid-90’s and was a co-founder and a co-director of 5RT, the experimental theatre wing of the 5Rhythms world, a place she stepped into with her expansive Texan feet, collaborating on numerous original productions and international workshops. In response to Gabrielle Roth’s investigation into what it means to be an authentic human being Lorca created Live Wire 5Rhythms Theatre which is dedicated to the creation of physical theater that is both interactive and transformative. Live Wire labs, Breath in Motion, Roots, Electric Landscapes, Silhouette, Wing Span, Soul Threading, Live Wire and On The Verge are rooted in a visionary and rigorous technique for people to become true “athletes of the heart" exploring and investigating the depths of the human spirit.
She is committed to scattering the seeds of this transformative process.
