Shapeshifter's Surrender

Lawrence - 7 May 2024 to 29 Sep 2024
Laura Martin-Eagle

 "In modern times, the term "shapeshifting" has been all but lost. More often than not we inhabit the shadow side of the shapeshifter either trying to be invisible or trying to be somebody else. This happens when, instead of having faith in the fluidity of our own persona, we try to fix ourselves in an idea of who we are. And when we can't come up with a good idea, we imitate somebody else's. The trick is to identify with the shifting, not the shape, the process, not the product."                     ~Gabrielle Roth

Dear Sisters, the circle has opened…Take our hands and join our circle of women dedicated to the journey of  wild abandon and holy ecstasy~ We dive deep to the realms of intuitive, visceral and instinctual movement to invite and invoke our deepest healing essence as we move our bodies in our shapeshifting beauty, wisdom and power. I look forward to being with you again in all your vulnerability and authenticity.

I hope you will join us on this monthly journey surrendering to the  sacred shapeshifter from the body, through the heart, releasing the mind, freeing the soul and meeting spirit on the dance floor. We will find our fluid nature that guides us through light and shadows and reveals the beauty of our own power and vulnerability. We will surrender to our own authenticity again and again as we offer ourselves to the dance.

The 5Rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness and together form a Wave. Just like the ocean, after one good wave we don’t all just go home! These are endless energies without a beginning or end as each rhythm seamlessly moves into the next.

The 5Rhythms® are a path into the self ~ a spelunking service to the inner caves and crevices within the body so that we can dive in and come out onto the other side.

As we move through the 5Rhythms we may meet the unfamiliar, uncomfortable in one moment and find ourselves seamlessly sliding into home in the next beat. We might meet our inner judge in one rhythm and then dissolve into breath and bone in another. And then we dance again and again with curiosity and willingness to show up with whatever we got and allow it to change as we move.

Slow Dancing With Chaos

With Jonathan Horan

In these funky, frenetic times, we need our feet on the ground, our instincts intact and our intuition in full force. Being true to the signs and signals that come from within is our survival art, not to mention a way to move with integrity in a world in flux. Hidden in chaos, like the eye of the hurricane, is the moving center, your power center, a place deep in your belly that holds your equilibrium and harmony. The way to this center is a deep medicine journey, a journey of blood, bones and sweat -- nothing less than an intimate affair with yourself. When we are this connected to our true self, we respond instinctively and intuitively, rather than from fear or habit. We know when to stay and when to go, when to speak and when to be silent, when to be patient and when to push, when to rush full tilt and when to be still. And so we move. Fueled by the ecstatic language of the 5Rhythms®, this is movement as spiritual practice, a dancing, kinetic prayer of connection to the unpredictable mystery of it all.
