Welcome to the 5Rhythms® Soul Canvas workshop. 

An immersive journey into the realms of movement, poetry, and artistry.

In this transformative experience, we invite you to explore the synergy between the fluidity of dance, the eloquence of poetry, and the boundless expression of visual art.

What to Expect:

1. Dance Your Essence:

- Engage in the dynamic 5Rhythms practice, a movement meditation journey through the cosmology of the 5Rhythms map. Explore and unlock stories and emotions, and learn to articulate, embody, and ritualize the poetry of the soul through dance..

2. Expressive Poetry Sessions:

- Delve into the art of soulful poetry writing. Guided sessions will encourage you to articulate your emotions, experiences, and dreams through the written word. Discover the power of poetic expression as a pathway to self-discovery.

3. Visual Art Exploration:

- Tap into your creativity with visual art exercises. Whether it's painting, drawing, or mixed media, use the canvas as an extension of your soul. Express the depth of your emotions visually, creating a unique masterpiece that mirrors your inner landscape.

4. Integration of Movement and Art:

- Experience the beautiful fusion of movement and art creation. Dance on the canvas, let your body be the brush, and witness the birth of a collaborative masterpiece. Explore the interplay between physical and visual expression.

5. Soulful Community Connection:

- Connect with like-minded souls on a shared journey of self-discovery. The workshop provides a supportive and nurturing space where participants can share insights, stories, and creative expressions, fostering a sense of community and shared inspiration.

6. No Rules, Just Flow:

- Embrace the freedom of expression with no rigid rules. Allow the energy to flow naturally, guiding you through a journey of self-exploration and creative discovery. This workshop is about tapping into your authenticity and letting your unique creative voice shine.

5Rhythms Soul Canvas is a unique opportunity to integrate movement, poetry, and visual art, creating a multidimensional expression of your innermost self. Join us in this exploration of the soul's canvas, where every movement and stroke tells a story, and every participant contributes to a collective masterpiece of embodied creativity.
