The Deepening, Residential Waves Intensive is a deep dive into the primary teaching of the 5 Rhythms – how to surrender to the flow of our own energy through dance, enabling us to recover that vital spontaneity. When intensively pursued, this simple exploration rapidly brings us face to face with our inhibitions, our masks and other defences we have taken on.
The deeper practice includes simple ways for these to begin sliding away – a meditation that redresses imbalances in modern lifestyles. So while the dance is exhilarating and physically liberating, it also brings quiet to the mind and a profound sense of internal stillness within movement.
The residential setting has been chosen to bring together all the ingredients needed to facilitate this deepening: Time and space in a beautiful, peaceful location on the stunning Gower coast. A supportive community of committed dancers. Nourishing whole earth food by the celebrated Café Momo. A highly experienced teacher. The perfect recipe.
The greatest gift of the 5 Rhythms is that, when engaged with deeply and fully, it takes us on a journey of progressive expansion towards our full potential as creative, loving beings. Catalytic in nature, it works to free the body, open the heart, still the mind and awaken consciousness. Ultimately, this entirely physical practice is a spiritual experience.
Wednesday 22nd Sept, 6pm through Sunday 26th, ~3pm
Timings during the workshop will vary, and will include evening sessions.
Venue, Accommodation, Food:
The dance hall is light and spacious, with a natural wood floor.
The Gower Coast is absolutely beautiful, and we shall be taking time in nature to connect and appreciate.
This is a residential workshop - we strongly encourage participants to stay ‘onsite’, ideally in the bunkhouse (rooms with 2-3 bunks), otherwise within easy walking distance in the village. (We shall operate as a 'large bubble' for the duration of the workshop, and accommodation details will be adjusted to suit regulations & guidance at the time.)
We are absolutely delighted to be working with the celebrated Cafe Momo, who have many years’ experience providing healthy, nutritious and sustaining vegetarian/vegan food at conscious dance and other workshops.
