Sanctuary ~ Path of the Heart

Bethesda - 29 Dec 2018 to 1 Jan 2019
Ann Kite

It is true, our bodies cannot lie.

They are equipped with so much wisdom, that we sometimes shut down, numb out, block, deny or avoid . . . but the body’s message stays, the heart’s message stays. Enduringly, they send their messages again and again:

This way, let this go.
Notice what you love, notice what you feel.
Have courage to share the depths inside you.

This New Year’s we will as a community go where we have not gone before. Inside ourselves we will gather wisdom’s teachings and bring them out to light the way on our path. We will draw forth the courage to be our truest selves - the courage to let go of what does not serve - the courage to walk toward that which we love, even when fear walks right beside us.

We will use ritual, dance, art, and sound bathing to get closer to the truth. We will see more of what is there inside and bring what we find to this life we live... to walk toward fulfilling moments and fulfilling relationships with full presence and love.

Closer to compassion.
Closer to forgiveness.
Closer to courage.
Closer to healing.

The dance will light our way.


Benefit: A New Year's 5 Rhythms Event with Sound Healing

Charlottesville - 31 Dec 2018 to 1 Jan 2019
Deborah Norton

 Welcome the New Year with dance! Dance benefits us, and in turn, our world. When we move, we open ourselves to change and growth, which trickles out to our friends, families, and loved ones. This in turn benefits our community, our nation, and ultimately the world. The 5 Rhythms provides a map for us to grow and thrive. We hope you will join us! 

This evening will begin at 8 pm with a 5 Rhythms Waves workshop led by Debby Norton, certified 5 Rhythms teacher. It includes a partner massage session led by Beth Ann Bartley, massage therapist, and will conclude with a crystal bowl sound healing led by Aiia Criostiona. We will end our session at 1am.

Suggested donation is $45. Donations of more or less will be gratefully received. Proceeds will be donated to the HealCharlottesville fund.

Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the egos hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.

Creativity. Connection. Community.
