Heart Melody: Compassion as an Anchor
Meet ~ Move ~ Melt ~ Mesmerize ~ Magic
When we listen closely, we can hear the Melody of our Hearts and those around us singing. Sometimes they sing in Joy and Compassion and other times they remind us to be present with our Fear, our Anger and our Sadness. When we listen to the messages we have the opportunity to meet, be with, move and express our deepest desires and yearnings. It’s the uncomfortable emotions, expressed effectively that bridge the gap to Joy and Compassion. This series of Heartbeat level day workshops is a space to move and be moved by the Melody of our Hearts towards Transformation. You are welcome to join all, one or a few. Attendance at all 5 will count towards the 5 Day Heartbeat pre-requisite for the 5Rhythms teacher training path.
Pre-requisites to join workshop: 5 Waves classes or a Waves level day or weekend workshop.

Through the practices of 5Rhythms dance, mindfulness meditation, and self-care, we weave together a retreat focused on healing and celebration. Looking back over the past few years, it is clear that many of us are exhausted. In times of turmoil and change, self-care and kindness are needed to connect us to the ability to recharge and renew. In order to move forward with energy, passion, and creativity, it is vital to seed these qualities in our daily life so that we may cultivate resilience.
Do you need to integrate more self-care into daily life? Would you like to be better resourced and have more energy? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, you are in perfect alignment to participate in this workshop.
The 5Rhythms is an externalization process that releases and balances the systems of the body through movement. It is a method of dance focused on presence versus performance. We pair this process with seated meditation to quiet the heart and mind, allowing for stillness and integration. Bringing both together mirrors the dance of life. We come together to create an environment that cultivates and nurtures joy, calmness, and ease.
Each session will be primarily focused on Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms moving meditation practice. We will complete each practice with a 10-15-minute seated meditation. Included will be a discourse on 5Rhythms, mindfulness, and self-care. All practices taught during this course lend to the experience and wisdom of resourcing and renewing vital life energy to send you home with skills and tools to apply to your daily life.
No experience is necessary. All workshop hours contribute to 5Rhythms® Teachers Training.
This workshop will include:
Discourses on mindfulness and 5Rhythms
