Whatever our process is, everything begins with awakening the flow of our creative energy. The most wonderful state of being is disappearing into that seamless liquid flow, dropping ego, and becoming essential energy. Anytime, anywhere, under any circumstance, this is our essential beginning.TAGS: 5 rhythms, 5Rhythms, 5Rhythms OneTribe, 5Rhythms Teacher Association, 5RTA, Chaos, Conscious Dance, dance movement therapy, ecstatic dance, five rhythms, Flowing, gabrielle roth, Gestalt Therapy, jonathan horan, Lyrical, Maps to Ecstasy, Medicine Dance, meditation, movement medicine, moving meditation, on-demand, online, Open floor, shamanic dance, Staccato, Stillness, sweat your prayers, The Moving Center
A reminder that we are always beginners in the dance. Every time we come to the dance floor we are met by the spontaneous, the unexpected, the unfolding of ourselves and each other in motion, and the unfolding of the world around us.TAGS: 5Rhythms, beginners series, body parts, breath, Chaos, dance, dance therapy, Flowing, free practice, gabrielle roth, Hannah Loewenthal, live.5rhythms.com, livestream, Lyrical, meditation, movement, Music, on-demand, online learning, practice, Staccato, Stillness, therapy

Just keep practicing, I told myself. If I practice with devotion, if I am relentless in interrogating the stories that limit me, and if I stay connected to raw, unfiltered presence, things will shift radically and this foot pain won’t be such a big deal. Some days, I winced through every step, but still managed to find freedom and inspiration. I even saw the pain as helpful, in that it brought me right into my feet and into the body.
After the “Elemental” workshop in April, my feet got still worse. It would have been difficult to spot, as I still swooped and soared, but I knew I had to seek help, not just hope that enlightenment would eventually free me. A friend suggested I visit an orthopedic doctor who specializes in working with extreme athletes.TAGS: 5 rhythms, 5Rhythms, Conscious Dance, Flowing, gabrielle roth, heel spurs, moving meditation
