Love is not a mood, but a dynamic way of being.
- Gabrielle Roth
The spontaneous heart is one that knows how to love and be loved. The Heartbeat map is a guide to how our emotional energy moves and morphs. In this practice we embody the art of being a fluid emotional athlete. This map teaches us how to navigate the emotional terrain of life without getting stuck, holding on, or pushing away.
We will explore how the body has been shaped by our emotions. Through the technique of the 5Rhythms practice, you will be shown skills and techniques to work with emotions in a healthy and creative way.
The 5Rhythms Heartbeat map is a path to understanding how the energies of the heart are transformed. The investigation is focused on how these energies come into us, move through us and transform us into more powerful and resilient human beings.
In we Flowing dance with fear and courage. In Staccato we dance with anger and forgiveness. In Chaos we dance with grief, and surrender into emptiness. In Lyrical we dance in joy and generosity. In Stillness we dance in compassion and connection.
Each session will be primarily focused on the 5Rhythms moving meditation. We will integrate each movement session with a seated meditation practice, focused on one of the Buddhist Heart Practices (brahmavihārā); equanimity, compassion, loving-kindness and joy.
In sitting meditation, we have the opportunity to observe the mind and body at rest through silent introspection. In 5Rhythms, we engage in mindfulness while in motion. The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together mirror the dance of life and support cultivation of well-being and balance.
