 5Rhythms®: Chaos, Grief Dancer

Gabrielle Roth taught, “The only way out, is through”. The rhythm of Chaos invites us to surrender to something larger than our individual selves. Have you been telling yourself to “let go”? Have you been waiting to release the weight and sorrows of your past? The sacred nature of Chaos breaks down barriers and lets these flood gates loose.

The grief of these unprecedented times opens all the suffering held in the body. So how do you move through this grief when it threatens to swallow you? This chaos dance will show you the way to stay grounded and survive it all with authenticity and grace. This dance will allow you to expand the bandwidth and empty what no longer needs to be held in the dam of your heart-space.

For integrated healing to take place we must move our bodies and address the grief on a cellular level. Griefs essential nature is here to do the holy work of washing the heart clean. When this is done, we are left emptied. In time, this empty space in where joy to finds room to re-enter.

We will practice the embodiment of what is already moving naturally through us, so that it can be related to with more ease and grace. We will identify where we are in the healing process as we move in the direction of transformation. Life is full of loss. Loss is here to teach us how deep our love truly is.

 Instructions for the optimal online experience: 

We will send you a Zoom link to the workshop the two days before it begins. Please download Zoom prior to the start of the workshop.

When you link into our Zoom class, you will be in a "waiting room" until our host admits you. The waiting room screen indicates that you are in the right place. 

This workshop starts at 9:30 am PT (Pacific Time) on Saturday. We will begin admitting people five minutes prior to the session. Please arrive promptly. It is important that you attend the full session. If you are more than twenty minutes late, we would prefer you to use the recorded session after.

Your microphone will be set to mute. Please do not unmute yourself as it creates a major disturbance for all participants.

Creating a safe container:

We ask that you not share the zoom link with anyone who has not registered for this workshop as we want to build a safe and aligned container.

You may turn off your camera at any point if you would prefer not to be seen. 

If anyone engages in inappropriate behavior during the class, they will be removed by the Host. 

If you would like to pin another participant, we request you ask for their consent in the Chat via private message, respecting others boundaries and forms of consent.

We ask that you do not post in the chat box during the session until the end when you can leave feedback. If you are having technological issues or have any questions, please send a message directly to the host or co-host and they will answer to the best of their ability.

We ask you to not record the session, and not post any screenshots where other participants are viewable. I will be recording our session in a speaker view, so no one will be included in this recording besides Lucia.

We kindly remind you that this content is for registered participants only. Please do not share in any way.


Make sure your computer or device is plugged in or charged.

For optimal sound quality, hardwire into a speaker is best. This can be done through an auxiliary channel. Though it is possible, we do not recommend using bluetooth or anything wireless for the best sound and video quality.

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.
