Gabrielle Roth, 5Rhythms founder
I always wanted to be somebody, but I should have been more specific.
Lily Tomlin, Comedian
Overwork, overload, overwhelm. Trash, texting, tensing. Instagram, instant gratification, useless information. iCloud, IKEA, no idea. Compulsion, confusion, computer frozen. Modern life in a consumer society…
Do you find it hard to make decisions? Have trouble saying yes or no? Do you often feel misunderstood? Or make simple things complicated?
This workshop will explore the physicality of the 5Rhythms inviting in the mountain of clarity that staccato teaches and the shimmering reflection of stillness. You will invigorate your dance practice, reclaiming a depth of clarity that is always there, concealed behind clouds of mental chatter. In movement we will make space, show up for ourselves and practice setting clear boundaries. Soften into confusion and create with a lightness of spirit. Find our alignment on the dance floor, in the body.
There is no emoticon for presence.
The 5Rhythms® map is an extraordinary landscape for movement possibility that awakes our soul and shines a brilliant light on the simplicity of being. Every body is a unique communication. So lets get clear. Together.
