The Stories We Hold

Vancouver - 8 Mar 2024 to 10 Mar 2024
Bettina Rothe

 "All around me, filling me, are proofs that the human spirit holds all of history, that we embody it in our muscles and bones, passing it along in our genes, its mystical currents flowing in our blood. Here we discover all that has occurred since the beginning of time, the explosion of form out of formlessness. Everything is all-so-clearly revealed in the chaos of the dance.” - Gabrielle Roth

Our bodies are the libraries of our personal, ancestral and collective stories. They hold the extraordinary wisdom and details of our lives. We carry imprinted memories that have manifested into our accomplishments and struggles. The remains in our bodies directly influence our personal health, thoughts, relationships, and actions.

The Practice of Somatic Archaeology invites us to unearth some of the hidden or stored memories to uncover and remember our own myths for personal and planetary healing. Our bodies facilitate this process through breath, sound, feelings and movement.

Through the transformative maps of the 5Rhythms® we will discover, express, release and acknowledge those story pieces that are ready to open inside our bodies. When we embody our truth and have it be witnessed and honoured we can move with more awareness, forgiveness, compassion, and understanding.

Together we will explore the healing salve of Storytelling. When shared respectfully stories can bring new meaning and perspective to our lives as we interpret our experiences, finding reconciliation and acceptance.

This immersion is open to all. Some 5Rhythms Dance experience is recommended but not required.

“Bettina holds space like a true leader. Her guidance is clear, constructive and inviting, without being intrusive to one’s individual process. I felt held and guided by her gentle yet strong heart.” — Previous Workshop Participant 



Victoria - 22 Mar 2024 to 24 Mar 2024

A 5Rhythms® Movement Workshop with Anne Marie Hogya

How can we learn to brave?

By stepping forward and making room for our shakiness,

our trembling, and our doubt-

step by step, small by small.

Acts of brave increase our tolerance for being human,

and expand our potential to live the full range of

our expression, our emotions, and our aliveness.

We can all

learn to brave.

In this dance embodiment workshop, we’ll exercise our courage. You’ll taste freedom and discover movement tools and inspiration to take what you learn and apply it in your daily life. Designed for adults of every age and ability, no experience is required.
