Our emotions are as natural as eating, shitting, farting and fucking but we don't live in a world that really allows them to move and breathe. Even being too happy is frowned on! 

Our rich emotional landscapes can become blocked, suppressed or tangled up in the shadowlands of the ego. We can get into head trips about which emotions are OK, which we can show, which we should hide. We've lost touch. Our emotions evolved with purpose, to protect, defend, release, connect and remind us that we are part of a bigger dance. This workshop is about bringing the emotions back home; back to the body. Investigating and reclaiming emotional fluidity. Tuning back in with the essential dance of the heart.

Chris Boylan has been studying 5Rhythms since 1999 and teaching intensively since completing his training with Gabrielle Roth in 2008. In the words of a regular dancer, his teaching is “raw, honest and compassionate”. This Heartbeat offering is an advanced 5Rhythms workshop requiring a minimum of 30 hours Waves work including at least one weekend workshop with a certified 5Rhythms teacher.

In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
