“A warrior is self-oriented, not in a selfish way, but in the sense of a total, continuous examination of the self." - Castaneda
Mirrors is an initiation into the world beyond self-importance -- into the art of seeing. To enter the world of Mirrors is to take off our blinders and begin to see through the delusions and difficulties that trap us in unhappiness and destructiveness. We start to step back and get some insight into the predictable patterns that sabotage the grace and dignity of our truest and most soulful self.
In the 5Rhythm® practice, we are constantly moving into the most spontaneous, energetic, expansive qualities of our being. In the Mirrors level of the practice, we are given the tools to identify the relentless loop of our own favorite head-trips and the inevitable situations they create. We tear off masks, sheds skins, reinventing ourselves effortlessly, learning to witness our own drama, its roots and rituals. We enter the crowd of characters that dominate our stage whether servant or star, doormat or dreamer, realist or rebel, mystic or manipulator—all divas, and begin to watch them sabotage our funky, fiery, free-spirit. Sometimes we have to stop the world and wonder: which part of me is using my hands, my feet, my eyes, my ears, and most importantly my mouth today?
We all know what it feels like to get stuck, to lose our groove, to get trapped in our heads and cut off from our hearts Seeking the answer within awakens the witness and learning to witness our own melodrama is our saving grace.
