Dive into Tranquility of Oceanfront 5 Day Waves Retreat in November!

Staring at the ocean actually changes our brain waves’ frequency and puts us into a meditative state. Add that to the 5Rhythms practice which also puts us into a meditative state, 1 + 1 = ALOT.

Finding our effortless flow begins with letting go of our constant planning as well as the question "why am I the way I am."  Then we'll embark on a journey of self-discovery through the waves map,  moving toward self-compassion and forgiveness, eventually moving toward a sense of preparedness for the outer world, bridging the two worlds of inner and outer,  as  we emerge again into the world.

We will dance with the ocean just outside the floor to ceiling windows, other possible invitations include. 

Naps: with the effortless time to following what your body needs

Barefoot Dancing on the Beach:** Feel the sand beneath your feet as you dance, connecting with the earth and the rhythms of your body.

Cold Water Plunging:** After a deep dance, cleanse your senses with invigorating dips in the cool ocean, a soul-stirring for sure.

Hot Tub Soaking:** Warm up and unwind in our seaside hot tub, soothing your body after a day of movement and self-discovery.

Sound Bathing on the Beach:** Let the soothing sounds of nature and gentle waves lull you into a state of deep relaxation and meditation.

Journaling on the Beach:** Find inspiration in the solitude of the shore, where you can reflect, journal, and connect with your inner self.

Group Sand Castle Building:** Collaborate with fellow participants to create whimsical sand castles, fostering a sense of community and shared creativity.

Tennis:**Bring a racket and some tennis balls there's a private tennis court

Join us November 9 - 13 Veteran's Day Weekend in Virginia Beach for a five-day 5Rhythms residential retreat at a large private home on the ocean. We will convert part of the home into a dance floor and take a 5-day journey that includes dance, shared meals, and ample downtime to integrate, relax, and hang out with other dancers. In addition to having the ocean right outside the back door, the home also has a hot tub and indoor pool.


The retreat will run from Thursday evening (Nov 9) to Monday early afternoon (Nov 13). Group meals will be provided beginning with dinner Thursday until lunch on Monday. The house will be available until Tuesday (Nov 14) at 10am, and all dancers are invited to stay and enjoy the community, house, and ocean for one additional night at no additional charge. Monday dinner and Tuesday breakfast will not be provided.
