“Rhythm is our universal mother tongue. It is the language of the soul.” Gabrielle Roth
The universal nature of stillness and movement cross the boundaries that normally divide us and bring us into realms that can unify language, culture, race, gender and religion. It is through the spirit of interconnection that we may dissolve our conflicts and find peace. Through sweat and stillness we will ride the rhythms of the mother tongue and return to the truth of self-realization.
You are invited to join us for a week of property wide celebration through the lineage of the 5Rhythms & Insight meditation.
Silent introspection and movement awareness offer us the possibility to unlock the gateways of healing, celebration and joy. Together we will build an environment that cultivates the skillfulness to create peace, balance and well-being.
The 5Rhythms teaches how energy moves and where it gets stuck. The rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness, help us to better understand our inner and outer landscapes. Insight meditation brings the stillness required to quiet the nervous system and still the mind.
The Buddha instructed that meditation should be practiced standing, sitting and laying down. It is not enough to practice only in stillness, on the cushion, mat or dance floor. We need the full spectrum of stillness and movement to direct the heart mind towards waking up in all aspects of life.
This workshop will include:
5Rhythms Dance (expect both gentle & vigorous movement)
Gentle Stretching and deep relaxation
