"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.

Join us in beautiful Taos, New Mexico for a three-day 5Rhythms Waves intensive with Melanie Cooley, focused on exploring and embodying the fundamental energies of the rhythms.
In 5Rhythms, the dance floor is your laboratory, your body is medium, marvel, and muse. You are the investigator and the mystery, the explorer and the quest, the scientist and the subject, the seeker and the sought.
And the rhythms are our map, inviting us to explore territories we have forgotten and to open possibilities we may never have considered. To cultivate our most complete selves–on and off the dance floor–grounded in our physical experience. To build a strong foundation from which to engage with each other and our wider communities.
Together we will explore our embodied territory through the maps of the 5Rhythms, building our practice from the ground up, from flowing, from our feet, through the wave and through our bodies.
Early Bird before January 30: $190
January 30 - April 19: $205
After April 19: $225
