“There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophies”
— Friedrich Nietzsche
The emphasis in our western world is mostly on expanding our knowledge and our mind. We are pushed to think more and at the same time to neglect our bodies. While sometimes just taking a moment to take a deeper breath will shift our awareness and drop our attention into our bodies. This is how we can start listening to our own deep longings that we have locked away inside these tender bodies.In this workshop we will explore the basics of the 5 Rhythms® to awaken the wisdom of our body. We will be discovering how we actually feel, we will use our bodies to define the shapes of our heart, to dissolve into movement, to disappear into the unknown territory of no-mind and to detach from old beliefs so we can finally start to be free!
Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego’s hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.
