 Dance of Connection

5Rhythms® Movement & Embodiment Retreat with Bettina Rothe

June 9-14, 2024

Hollyhock, Cortes Island, BC

Deepen connection with yourself, others, nature and Spirit. Come home to yourself, find connection and nourishment in community, and with the land. Together we take refuge in our primary language "rhythm", and find belonging in the dance.

Release old patterns of relating that no longer serve and expand your repertoire of how you can relate with others on the dance floor and in life. 

This retreat weaves the transformative movement practice of the 5Rhythms® together with heart-centred communication, land-based rituals, and embodied leadership. Sessions will be held indoors and outdoors.

Embodiment practices will unleash your creative spirit and support you in finding authentic expression of body, heart and mind.

No previous dance experience is necessary. Every body is welcome. 

This is a residential retreat with 3 gourmet meals per day and optional additional activities like morning yoga, kayaking, garden tours or Hollyhock’s famous beach oyster bbq. Sessions will be held indoors and outdoors.

The retreat starts with dinner on June 9th and completes with lunch on June 14th.


$750 CDN (5 nights)

Accommodation ranges from camping to private rooms. Please see the Hollyhock website for pricing and room descriptions.

"Bettina's retreat was one of the most transformative weekends of my life. I’m still digesting and don’t quite have the words to express my gratitude for the experience. I’m hooked on the possibilities available through the 5Rhythms and excited to integrate some of the learnings into my daily life." -- Jody

"I expected Bettina's retreat to be good; I didn't expect it to be amazing! The retreat structure was brilliant, and with the remarkable facilitation I achieved new highs and deeper transformations day-after-day-after-day. Bettina and her team created a deeply loving and intimate environment for me to connect with myself and others. This was a 12/10—I can't wait to go on another retreat with Bettina!" -- Jordan
