2 Weekends with Annette Uhlemann
5Rhythms® HEARTBEAT For all my relations
Grounded in the 5Rhythms® this HEARTBEAT™ calls to the dance of relationship to oneself, a partner & a group. A moving meditation while witnessing oneself with attention and awareness. Can we stay in center and true to ourselves while meeting our colleagues, partner, friend, child, mother... or do we lose ourselves our flow - contact to body and heart? Following Gabrielles Heartbeatmap we will explore the movement of basic instinctiv feelings:
FEAR protects us,
ANGER defends us,
SADNESS releases us,
JOY connect us and
COMPASSION united us.
On this journey we will invite our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. We explore and transform inner constructs, beginning to see our old scars as symbols of wisdom and healing. We move together with love, tenderness, kindness and with care. Natural fluidity of the body in FLOWING. In STACCATO we are relating and expressing by being focused, direct, clear and heartfelt. We examine connecting us to others by daring to see and be seen, feeling boundaries and drawing lines - to love and be loved. Ending up by letting go in CHAOS and finding ones place in the group, surrendering to unity in LYRICAL and offering our being in STILLNESS - remembering our ancient roots.
We are essentially fluid beings constantly changing as we breathe and move through life, opening and closing, learning, forgetting, remembering. We can easily forget this though and lose our presence in fixed roles and seemingly solid identities …as if… we were objects untouched by feelings. Gabrielle, in her Mirrors mapping’ called these states “ego characters”. Circumstance combined with our innate sensitivity often leads us, particularly in the company of others, to act …as if… we were these characters that we hide behind. Presenting ourselves in some way as if we have life nicely managed, we learn to become self limiting, hoping to be approved of, to be loved, hiding the very vulnerability which makes us “human” in the best possible sense, This humanity, which can so unite us, create community and deep empathy can, when fear arises become quickly covered over with judgment and isolation. We lose the ability to see and clearly feel the beauty behind the mask. We both fear and seek attention from “others”. Using the Perspectives process which offers individual attention within careful group holding we can uncover more than these ego character styles, detaching from them, making them more visible for all to see, hold, respond to and release.REGISTER TODAY!
