Victoria - 1 May 2022 to 29 May 2022
Joanne Winstanley

Life keeps bringing us change -- individually and collectively -- while our dominant culture demands that we maintain a level of busy-ness or 'normal' that generally overrides our need to take time, to tend, to connect, to acknowledge and honour and integrate these changes well. Over the last few years, many of us may also have moved through significant changes without the support of a well-resourced community, or without much company at all.


This series will offer 5Rhythms® movement, inquiry, witnessing and grounding practices to help tend to some of the change, loss, reorientations and adjustments we've moved through. We'll take time to notice what needs our attention, to make good endings where needed, to witness one another, and to simply catch up with ourselves.

Together, we'll create and move into creative, dynamic, liminal space so that we can attend to our physical selves, our hearts, our social selves, and our place in the changing world around us. We will craft simple ritual to honour our changes. We do this so that we may be well, and so that we can weave ourselves well into the web of our relations, tending and being tended as needed.

Please note -- while this group will offer a space to move and attend to places that may be tender, you don't have to arrive in any particular feeling-state, or share anything you don't want to. Your joy is welcome here, and your sorrow too. Your need for connection is welcome here, your need for privacy, your ambivalence. You will be encouraged and supported to move at whatever pace is right for you.



Squamish - 28 May 2022 to 28 May 2022

 Soul to Soul

A 5Rhythms® & Embodiment Event with Bettina Rothe

Saturday, May 28: 2:00 – 6:00 PM in Squamish, BC

“Our soul, our true self, is the most mysterious essential, and magical dimension of our being.” ~ Gabrielle Roth

The 5Rhythms® movement practice offers maps for healing and a pathway to our innermost being. They lead our being from fragmentation into wholeness.

The sacred task of this transformational body of work is to come home into our earthy bodies, express and open our hearts and to empty the mind, so that we can tap into our intuition and creativity. When body, heart and mind are in alignment, we move through life from a deeper place within us- from SOUL. Freeing the soul involves living out the aspects of our authentic Self, of what it means to be human.

Each soul is unique, and we are called upon to discover and offer our own magic, gifts and offerings. What would it be like to come together to let those qualities creatively interplay with oneself, each other and the world? Where do we see ourselves in the bigger web of life? What are we ready to contribute to the global dance?

Please join us for an afternoon of moving in community. You are welcome to join us for a potluck style dinner post dance and spend the night camping on the land (extra charge of $15/ person). Please RSVP.
