Meeting Stillness: A 5Rhythms Moving Meditation

Berkeley - 13 Dec 2019 to 15 Dec 2019
Sayrah Garrison - Ajay Rajani

Are you spinning in a world full of information, distractions, constant stimuli and never ending to-do lists? 


This weekend workshop is an invitation to meet in Stillness. Stillness is the final rhythm in the 5Rythms Wave. It is the rhythm that converges in a place of pure presence within us that enables us to feel more resourced and ready to thoughtfully respond to the ever changing, PRESENT MOMENT.


As we dance through each Wave (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness), we will attune ourselves to the breath, the gateway to Stillness, to encourage moment to moment awareness that will lead us home to our integrated selves.


"All these energies [the 5Rhythms] come together in you. In your deepest center, you are the stillpoint". 

Gabrielle Roth, Maps to Ecstasy
