Nourish: A 5Rhythms Deep Dive

Scottsdale - 2 Mar 2019 to 27 Apr 2019
Melanie Cooley

"Nourish beginnings, let us nourish beginnings.
Not all things are blest, but the
seeds of all things are blest.
The blessing is in the seed.
This moment, this seed, this wave of the sea, this look, this instant of love."

~ Muriel Rukeyser from “Elegy in Joy”

Too much in our world, in our lives, in our culture uproots us from our embodied selves, turns us into talking heads, out of touch with the physicality of our experience.

But we are embodied beings. We experience all things in our bodies. And it is through our bodies–through movement, exploration, expression, attention, and awareness–that we we can cultivate the sensitivity and resilience to be fully human in this moment.

This five-session 5Rhythms Waves intensive series with Melanie Cooley will take us deep into the fundamentals of 5Rhythms as an embodiment practice. Inviting us to ground ourselves in the roots of the rhythms, to plant the seeds of a practice that will bring us home to our bodies, nourish our humanness, and set our feet toward new possibilities.

Medicine Wheel

Dallas - 22 Mar 2019 to 24 Mar 2019
Amber Ryan

 In this elemental movement workshop, we will explore the teachings and medicine alive within each of the five rhythms: FLOWING / STACCATO / CHAOS / LYRICAL / STILLNESS

We will gather In community, to practice, to embody and discover which of the rhythms are thriving within us as well as the ones lying dormant just waiting to be tapped into. 

In the dance we move to unlock tension, to clear our channel of stagnant energy, and to open into an enlivened, instinctual and creative wellspring. That's Good medicine for the body, heart and soul.

We will weave the sacred with the mundane to create a potent medicine wheel in which we will offer to ourselves, each other and beyond.

Join us in this workshop and be a part of something extraordinary
