Life takes us on a winding path.
From stuck-in-the-mud ditches of don’t-know-how-I-got-here, to celebratory strides across long aimed for finish lines, a sense of being lost and found and lost and found again, seems par for this wild course.
How do we find our way in times of trouble and in seasons of ease?
We are gifted with bodies full of instinct and intuition. We are the owners of magnificent navigational systems of signals and symptoms. Can we feel them? Do we follow their guidance?
The 5Rhythms movement practice can reconnect us with our innate vitality and sensate wisdom. There are no steps to follow in this improvisational movement method. Instead, we show up, tune in and move what is alive in us. This is the dance of allowing something deeper to direct. Of sensing and responding. This is a practice of putting down external road maps, and turning towards our own inner compass.
In these teetering times as our species takes a worldwide wander into uncharted challenge, well-tuned intuitive instruments are needed more than ever. Together, let’s cultivate our capacity to listen in and discern right action. Let’s tap in to this messy marvel of life. Let’s get down, kick it, soul seek, sweat induce, dance dive, and meditate our muscles. Let’s move with the messages emerging from within.
Every body, and all movement experience is welcome.
"The fastest, cleanest, most joyful way to break out of your own box is by dancing…Dancing so deep, so hard, so full of the beat that you are nothing but the dance and the beat and the sweat and the heat."
~ Gabrielle Roth
Dancing the 5Rhythms® (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness), we move through a Wave that mirrors the way energy moves and changes in the world. We begin slow and gentle, let our movements become more vigorous as we build to a peak of release, then we follow the ripples of our dance until it settles into a still and meditative place.
In this workshop we will practice the art of being fully alive in the present moment, to all that moves through us, awakening and expressing the full spectrum of our creative, vibrant, unique selves. Together we will explore the foundations of 5Rhythms, and dive deep into our own dance, supported by diverse musical maps of funky grooves, soulful melodies, big thumping tribal beats, and meditative soundscapes. Come follow body, breath, and beat into the sacred with a tribe of other dancing seekers. Come reSource, come release, come ride the Wave. Every body, and all movement experience is welcome.
