“Every story is us.”
~ Rumi ~
Our lives are made up of stories … without them we would not exist. Life is a story.
And ALL our stories live in our bodies. Whether they are the facts of our lives, what we have created out of those facts, or pure fiction, they find a home within us and they reside in our cells.
This is my story. Yet any story is not my whole story. It is a part of me but not the whole of me.
We may have different relationships to our stories. Perhaps a tendency to dismiss them. “That’s just my story.” Or attach ourselves to one version or another. “This is who I am,” or “This is what my life is.” Or develop an aversion to yet another. Each of these relationships becomes a story unto itself.
In our 3-hour, mini-workshop series on the Third Thursday of each month this Fall, we will dance the essential 5Rhythms® of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness®, as we explore and become present to how our bodies hold our stories, how we move them and how they move us; the beauty of where and how they guide us, support us, as an integral part of our physical landscape, articulated by our bones, our cells, our hearts, minds, souls and spirits.
This is a morning moving meditation for deepening and awakening.REGISTER TODAY!
Do you have the discipline to be a free spirit?"~ Gabrielle Roth
Dancing the 5Rhythms® (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness), we move through a Wave that mirrors the way energy moves and changes in the world. We begin slow and gentle, let our movements become more vigorous as we build to a peak of release, then we follow the ripples of our dance until it settles into a still and meditative place.
In this workshop we will immerse ourselves in the 5Rhythms - exploring the physical gateways of the practice that free the body, give us a broader palette of movement expression, and awaken us to the vibrant, dynamic pulse of life moving through us.
Together we will let the medicine of the Rhythms guide us to a deeper experience of our own dancing freedom, supported by diverse musical maps of funky grooves, soulful melodies, big thumping tribal beats, and meditative soundscapes. Come as you are, come curious, come ready to sweat, release, and reSource.
Every body, and all movement experience is welcome.
