― Brother David Steindl-Rast
Practicing the 5Rhythms is basically the celebration of life in our bodies. This dance is the expression of gratefulness towards the body that it exists, that it functions, that we are able to experience it. It’s not a congratulation over its achievements, but thanksgiving for its existence. Just the same way as on a birthday we don’t celebrate someone because of their achievements or success. We have other occasions for that. On birthdays we celebrate people simply because they are there, because they exist. Nobody has to achieve anything to have a birthday. The same way, when we practice 5Rhythms we don’t have to achieve anything. It’s enough that we are alive and we say thanks to our bodies that it exists, that we exist.
In 5Rhythms practice we put our focus on the moving body. But we don't do this in a dualistic way. Focusing on movement doesn't mean that we exclude other aspects of our existence. Body for us is not the opposite of mind or soul. Unfortunately in our culture it is a deeply held belief that humans are made of body and soul, which are opposites of each other. For me this is quite different. I don’t think they are opposites. I think they are part of the same system, the same entity called human being, they mutually support each other and they are mostly inseparable. The physical aspect of this entity, which we call “body” is the container of our being, it is the foundation of our existence. If we turn our attention towards it, the positive results will be felt in every part of our lives.
Please feel free to join us on this workshop. It doesn't matter if you have never danced in your life. This practice invites every moving person.
