Upcoming Workshops

5Rhythms®: Gateways

Big Sur - 22 Apr 2018 to 27 Apr 2018
Davida Taurek


Come to dance and be danced! Move until you are moved. Danceuntil the dancer disappears and only the dance remains. —Gabrielle Roth


The gateway of the body is a powerful vessel that allows usto move and be moved. In a wild world of distraction, do you know how to findyour way into focus and connection? The 5Rhythms teaches us skills and tools touse in our everyday life that help us facilitate this union. If we have thecourage to move the body, the heart and mind can follow. Come open the gatewayto your potential and see what is waiting for you on the other side.


The 5Rhythms is a moving meditation practice. The rhythms,Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness, allow us to explore the truenature of who we are and how our energy moves in this world.


Cultivating Intuition

Sacramento - 28 Apr 2018 to 28 Apr 2018
Bella Dreizler

Bella and Majica are back at it for a THIRD YEAR!!  Please join us again as we combine5Rhythms with art and see where it takes us.

Do you give credit to your initial gut response? Do you ever discount it…thendown the road wish you hadn’t? It’s just a sad fact that our naturally tunedanimal instinct systematically gets trained right out of us. Our earlyconditioning---structure and school, beliefs and dogma, roles andteachers---often masks messages that come from the depths within.

5Rhythms is an exquisite map of this territory. Combine the dance with theprocess of collage and we “transform our suffering into art”.* Nurture a rootedintuitive connection to your creativity and come home with your own personal deckof soul cards. “Intuition is a knowing without thinking.”* Leave what you knowat the door and “give intuition space to operate in your life.”*

*Gabrielle Roth (of course!)
