Being human can be a very scary experience. One way we cope with fear is dissociation, or leaving the body. We all carry this tendency to varying degrees – some of us split out at the first sign of trouble, others only as a last resort. Either way, the result is a detachment from our bodies and our unique life experience. Through the 5Rhythms movement map we will explore how this leaving pattern shows up in our lives, our own tendency to dissociate, how we can reclaim our embodiment, and what gifts we may ultimately receive from the pattern. We will practice grounding ourselves and supporting others to do the same. Moving in meditation through many hours together, we will foster a deeper connection to the safety of our moving consciousness.

Join us April 26th to 28th as we explore the embodied experience of safety. We will dance under an outdoor pavilion and enjoy fresh air, moutain views, hiking, a community campfire, and spa services. There is also a wood-fired sauna on the lake. The Buffalo Gap cafe serves healthy, prepared foods, with vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore options.

Buffalo Gap Retreat is located in the foothills of the Potomac Highlands, and is just 2 hours from Washington DC. The retreat center features cottage rentals and tent camping in addition to a beautiful outdoor pavilion, expansive fields, a lake for swimming, a wood-fired sauna, hiking trails, a cafe offering prepared foods, and other amenities.
