5Rhythms Teacher Gathering

Sacramento - 18 Aug 2017 to 20 Aug 2017
Bella Dreizler

Gather (verb):
1) to come together, assemble or collect
2) to bring together and take in from scattered places or sources

For two years I’ve been feeling this call. It grows soft for a spell and then turns insistent, urgent again. Up and down. But never ceasing. It keeps urging me to summon us from our scattered places so we might dance our connection to each other. Dedicated time to move together, nourish each other, learn from each other, drink from the well… love each other up!

That time has finally arrived. Ideal space (cheap and gorgeous) has manifested in Sacramento, which is such an easy destination. Three full days have been carved out for us to be teachers and students together. We all know the magic possible given these fertile conditions… memories of Januarys in Manhattan still rumble deeply in me.

I am so open to hearing your thoughts on making the best use of this dedicated time. My vision is slowly taking shape and feels very fluid: some of the time dancing in 60? 90? minute sessions, teacher hats on. Take a bit of time to unpack the teaching: hear from the facilitator, small pod conversations. And some of the time simply dancing, held in the basket of someone’s warm up wave offering. Back and forth…

What arises for you when you imagine this scenario? Maybe you simply want to show up and be held. Maybe you’re interested in doing some of that holding.

If you have suggestions, want to offer a warm up wave or a teaching wave, please email I’ll be compiling a list of potential teachers and their dreams.
