Upcoming Workshops


Victoria - 22 Jun 2018 to 24 Jun 2018
Anne Marie Hogya

How do we explore the beautiful, tender fabric of our heart? How can we gently be with what we feel, and for many of us, what we don’t feel? In this 5Rhythms Heartbeat level workshop we will explore with curiosity and generosity the revealings of our heart.  

There is such grace and wisdom in being able to gently allow our heart to show us how it navigates our experiences. 

For many of us our emotional responses can be limited and stuck: our feelings can be intense and wildly out of control or for others our emotional world feels numb and frozen. In this workshop, we will uncover the beauty and understanding that can be found in learning about how we experience our emotions. We will dive deeply into curiosity and invite tenderness and wonderment in exploring the layers of our heart. This process will reveal a free and fluid emotional expression that will assist you to feel more loving, alive, and open-hearted. 

Anne Marie will guide you through the 5Rhythms practice and you will be shown skills and techniques to take home and apply to your daily life. This workshop is designed for everyone: every age and physical ability.  


Body, Breath and Beat

Gabriola Island - 5 Jul 2018 to 8 Jul 2018
Bettina Rothe

The 5Rhythms are a form of ecstatic dance, a workout for body and soul, a moving meditation and a spiritual practice. While the practice itself is simple, it has the power to catalyze deep healing and creative expression. Dancing the 5Rhythms can be meditative, expressive, fun and transformative. It gives us the opportunity to find freedom in motion, states of heightened awareness, profound healing and the inspiration for living a creative and fulfilling life. In this 5Rhythms workshop we will explore the mother language of our bodies which is rhythm. The dance gives us an opportunity to dive deeply into our embodied selves, connecting us to our essence and the magic of the present moment.
