Each of the rhythms represent one of life energies that will have a unique flavor for each individual. Dancing freely through the 5 rhythms is called a wave.
We start with Flowing leading us to our feet, checking where we belong, what we value, finding ground that can be trusted. Second will emerge Staccato and will direct us out, into meeting the world. For some it's simple and clear, for some tense, as it calls for our full yes, or our clear boundary. Chaos will face us with what we pretend to know, taking off the vails we use, asking us to clear the concept closet of old ideas, creating space for the next step. In Lyrical we might find endless possibilities that were hiding in the depth of the stuffy closet of concepts. Expanding us, surprising us, lifting us to break our own glass ceiling. When Stillness comes we have changed, endless times and can rest in the deep silence of the vast emptiness waiting us in our breath.
Can we truly change? – “I’m not sure”
Can we stay the same? – “No, we cannot, but sometimes we do.”
Can we choose to change or does life forces us to change? “Ahhhmmm, I’m not sure.”
What does change mean to each of us? How much we avoid it? or welcome it?
Change brings many questions, we can try to answer some of them on the dance floor, listening to our longings and dreams, following our feet, noticing our resistance, watching, what happens to our breath, checking deep inside to notice scares us and when we can choose a new way.
