Dancing with the Ancestors

White Salmon - 9 Nov 2019 to 9 Nov 2019

 Dancing with the Ancestors

Join Abby Kenny and Sara Mains

+5Rhythms ~ Cacao Ceremony ~ Ritual +

Deep into the forest we will gather to dance with the Ancestors, not only those of blood lines but our soul lines as well

 ~ opening the gates through movement and ceremony. 

We will dance through our linage between now and then. 

We will dance through the web of cultures, traditions and the array of medicine and heartache that resides in each of us. 

We will dance with our feet on the earth and the many feet that have danced upon her. 

We will dance with our mothers, fathers and their mothers and fathers. 

In honor of our ancestors, may we join and dance between the worlds, spiraling back to where beginning meets the end.

  5Rhythms® practice calls us through movement to remember and ignite the stories in our bodies, to move through, receive, release and embody the dynamic experience of being human.

Offered by Sara Mains 

Cacao Ceremony is anchored in the medicine of the plant world, the cacao that we drink offers direct connection to the heart and sensual pulse of the earth.  

Offered by Abby Kenny

Dancing with the Ancestors will be an intimate group of 20 participants, we will gather in a yurt in the forest surrounded by big trees and warmed by fire. 

We hope you will join us!


Masquerade: a 5Rhythms Embodiment Workshop on the Cusp of the New Year

Olympia - 27 Dec 2019 to 29 Dec 2019
Bettina Rothe - Evangelos Diavolitsis

 How do we become sacred activists for our personal and collective dreams?

What hidden and underused archetypes need to be activated to move forward?

The archetype of the shapeshifter has the ability to change. We all have the potential to bring forth different versions of our untapped selves and to expand beyond our habitual identities. Summon your superhero or avatar. You might even need to temporarily wake up your inner villain to move blocked energy. A masquerade will only last as long as long as our lies so we

invite you to dance into the unseen truth.


The 5Rhythms® movement practice offers maps for healing and a pathway to our infinite inner source. They lead our being from fragmentation into wholeness, from feeling imprisoned in our identity to states of profound freedom. In this workshop we will create simple masks to help bring our shapeshifter to life. Instead of masking to hide or cover up, we will reveal and strengthen aspects of ourselves that we wish to embody, birth or grow.

Come and join us for this playful yet transformative weekend on the cusp of the year. Together we can embody the change we wish to see in the world. This is Bettina’s and Evangelos’ first time offering this workshop in North America. Every body is welcome.
