Victoria

The oldest 5Rhythms community in Australia, Melbourne is a must-dance destination for lovers of 5Rhythms.


Meredith Davies was the first teacher to start a weekly 5Rhythms class in Melbourne in 2003.  Five years later Madhuma Thompson began a second weekly class and initiated a monthly Sweat Your Prayers, and now more than a decade later, with Meredith’s husband David Juriansz joining the teaching field, they have grown a huge dancing tribe.  The weekly ‘Tuesday Tsunami Wave’ in North Fitzroy may be one of the biggest weekly 5R classes in the world ~ a pulsating, deep ride for over 150 dancers.  With sometimes 6 classes a week, workshops with international teachers, 3 local teachers and more in training, Melbourne is a vibrant 5Rhythms dance community.

Exquisite Darkness – A Castlemaine Winter Solstice Treat with Meredith n

Castlemaine - 22 Jun 2018 to 24 Jun 2018
Meredith Davies

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Much of who we are lives below the surface of our day to day lives.  Making time to access this inner world is profoundly nourishing. Good food for our hungry souls.When we shine light on our essential feelings and personal truths, we can begin to uncover and align with our purpose of being. This investigation is intimate, intuitive and mysterious; an exquisite meeting between our dark depths and most beautiful luminous self.Winter is an ideal time to take this journey within…On the dance floor, we’ll be shedding skins, unravelling to our core then dropping into the sweet balm of meditation in motion, stillness and silence.  In the evenings, we’ll nourish ourselves with winter treats – live dance music, wholesome delicious food, campfire singing, a night soak in a hot tub and a magical fire ceremony. We’ll welcome our last day together with a sunrise walk in the bush. Set in the beautiful historic town of Castlemaine, surrounded by nature, Exquisite Darkness will be a nourishing Winter weekend of treats.


Meredith Davies worked as a therapist and creative dance facilitator in the mental health and disability arts field before training with Gabrielle Roth 2001.

Path of Courage

Melbourne - 13 Jul 2018 to 14 Jul 2018
Lucine Eusani

“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and most powerful selves to be deeply seen and known”- Brene Brown 



Through the embodiment map of the 5Rhythms®, we will explore what it means to have courage. The courage to show up. The courage to speak our truths, the courage to fail, the courage to move beyond failure, and the courage to belong. This workshop is grounded in a deep devotion to the 5Rhythms®, a lifetime of “personal development” failures, and the profound wisdom of Brene Brown’s work on courage and belonging. We will dance, we will write, we will share and we WILL look at ways to bring these teachings home with us.
