Gabrielle Roth, the founder of the 5Rhythms Practice, said "Once you awaken your intuition and get in the habit of listening to and acting on it, every decision in your life will become reflective of your inner truth. The trick is not to try to work out all the answers in your head. Rather take whatever information you need into your body, trust your gut, then dance or meditate or walk or do whatever you need to enter a relaxed state of being and you'll know what to do. You always have and you always will."
Gina will guide us on paddleboards on the ocean where we can explore and experience Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness® on the water. As we learn to respond to the energy of the water, it will inform us and create a sense of oneness. The ocean is a great source of healing and inspiration. During our time on the water whisper your desires to the ocean, and see what inspirational guidance it has to offer.
After experiencing the rhythms of the ocean, we will come back to land and spend the afternoon guided by Anne Marie immersing ourselves in the Waves of the 5Rhythms practice on the dance floor. The element of water will be our through line and our medicine as we seek healing, inspiration and the possibility for gentle transformation.
