INTO THE DARKNESS:5Rhythms Winter Solstice Workshop w/Karen

Asheville - 15 Dec 2019 to 15 Dec 2019
Karen Chapman

Karen Chapman certified 5Rhythms teacher presents Into The Darkness: Winter Solstice 5 Rhythms® Workshop!


Time: 12noon-4pm

Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year. Winter is a time where we burrow ourselves into the warmth of our homes. We are like planted seeds in the ground preparing to spring forth sprouts. In Winter, we begin to cultivate visions, dreams, being introspective and reflective of our present and future times. Through the 5Rhythms® maps of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness, we will move our bodies through the darkness to see what possibilities and pathways are open to us as we prepare to come out into the light in Spring! 

Ritual: Give away with intention, please bring a small gift (nothing expensive) to give away!

Creative art Process: we will participate in the creative arts process to open up visual channels of creative expression.

What to bring for our Winter Solstice journey:

-wear comfortable clothing for movement

-commitment to the entire experience

-bring plenty of water and water bottles

-bring a light snack to eat

-bring a small gift to give away (nothing expensive)

-bring magazines of your choice 

-no drugs or alcohol

-turn off cell phones

email admin@vedastudios.com with any questions.   

Thank you!  



Bethesda - 29 Dec 2019 to 1 Jan 2020
Ann Kite

To live fully today we must become attuned to ourselves — our physical, emotional, and spiritual condition — so that we may ride the eddies of our times not just gracefully, but with the courage of leaders in a movement of awakening.

This is the year we must step forward and own both our weaknesses and our strengths. This is the year that we must acknowledge our past so we can live fully in the present. The world is calling more loudly than ever for a new humanity — a humanity where raw authenticity is the daily norm and our open hearts lift us to a higher awareness of our connectedness and responsibility.

In this workshop, we will create a crucible to melt the façade that hides our Light. We will, as a community, build and undergo an alchemical experience that leaves us feeling comfortable in our fluid, emotional nature and grounded in our life’s purpose and service in 2020.
