“If you aren’t fascinated with your own dance how is someone else supposed to be?” -Gabrielle Roth
So often we long for contact outside of ourselves, and so often we are left feeling empty and heavy-hearted. The 5Rhythms practice brings us back to the beginning with the Rhythm of Flowing, where we learn to contact ourselves. Over and over again, we build that relationship as a foundation for all others and anchor this longing to be in touch back into our own moving bodies. When knowing where our home is we have more courage to take risks and in the Rhythm of Staccato we go outside of ourselves to meet others. How do we get in touch with each other without touch? How do we keep moving while another is also moving, and not always in the same tempo or direction? Exploring our questions in the Rhythm of Chaos, we surrender to not knowing. We dance the unpredictability of two energies meeting each other. We let 1+1 equal 3 and more.. Having a whole weekend to be and dance together will give us enough time for those spontaneous, effortless, and magical contacts that are gifts of the Rhythm of Lyrical. The invitation is to relax into awareness of how connected we already are – all breathing the same air and all our roots dancing together in the same Earth. Rhythm of Stillness whispering “We are One”.
On the dance floor, meeting complete strangers in the beat, you have the opportunity to rip off your mask and relax into the rhythm of connection.” Gabrielle Roth
