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.
• What are the invisible threads that connect you in this life?
• How can we use the 5Rhythms® map to help us explore the connections we most want?
By fostering the intimate union of breath and movement we follow a path that leads us out of isolation and into connection. Here one learns to create the conditions for healthy connections between self, partner & community.
At times these mysterious threads need to be tended to, cut or reinforced.
The 5Rhythms® practice brings us great wisdom in navigating this terrain. You will learn a system of skills and tools that can be applied to your daily life, so that you can have more ease and peace in all realtionships.
The 5Rhythms® is a moving meditation practice, an improvisational form of dance. It shows us the patterns, rhythms and cycles of life. Flowing connects us to our yin nature. Staccato connects us to our yang. Chaos unifies and integrates these two energies. As a result we find transformation in Lyrical. From this space we are delivered into the rhythm of Stillness. The nature of the stillness dance invites compassion and allows for integration.
In this workshop we will integrate the stillness of Buddhist mindfulness meditation with the moving meditations of the 5Rhythms®. The Buddha encouraged us to bring wise attention to every aspect of our lives.
In sitting meditation, we have the opportunity to observe the mind and body at rest through silent introspection. In the practice of the 5Rhythms®, we engage in mindfulness while in motion. The 5Rhythms® is a map that teaches how energy moves. The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together mirror the dance of life and open the door to peace, well being and balance.
