What are the invisible threads that connect you in this life? How can we use 5Rhythms®, a moving meditation practice and improvisational form of dance, to help us explore the connections we most want? By fostering the intimate union of breath and movement, we follow a path that leads us out of isolation and into connection.
At times these mysterious threads need to be tended to, cut or reinforced. The 5Rhythms® practice teaches us to create the conditions for healthy connections between self, partner and community to foster more ease and peace in all relationships.
In this workshop we will integrate the stillness of Buddhist mindfulness meditation with the moving meditations of the 5Rhythms®. In sitting meditation, we have the opportunity to observe the mind and body at rest through silent introspection. In the practice of the 5Rhythms®, we engage in mindfulness while in motion. The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together mirror the dance of life and open the door to peace, well-being and balance.
No previous experience is required. All workshop hours contribute to Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® teacher training.
