“The first thing that has to happen is we have to free the body from all its conditioning in a very literal way. We need to physically free the body, wake it up and get it back into motion and fluidity. Gabrielle Roth
"Nothing happens until the signal passes the threshold." Oxford Living Dictionary
We are in times of global chaos and transition, constantly on the edge of many thresholds. With continuous motion and change we are relentlessly called into transformation, to staying aware of the eternal now, present to our essential Self and one another. How are we to move gracefully between these transitions? How to embrace beginnings and intimately know about endings? When at the threshold of a great turning, how do we resource ourselves and empower one another to step in, begin, sustain, and follow-through with our personal and collective passages and initiations?
We free the body first! Physical movement is our point of entry for grounding and feeling what is true under the surface of the mind, for listening deeply to the soul, and for finding freedom in every step.
5Rhythms® is a movement practice that gets all your creative juices flowing. It doesn't just release your body; it opens up your heart and empties out your mind. Dancing with awareness puts you in touch with a deeper, wiser, you that senses the unity underlying everything. And, when we dance together, we support this freedom in each other and expand our ability to cultivate deep love and compassion for the whole as we move towards new states, new experiences, and creative strength.
Thresholds are also moments when we meet the magnitude or intensity that must be exceeded for a certain reaction, result, or condition to occur or be manifested. Often, it is the very point where we reach the edge of our perceived limitations and freeze, back off, resist, or prevent change. Let’s practice fully meeting and surrendering to this very edge, dancing joyfully through it, and stepping boldly into trust and freedom no matter what gateways we face.
This workshop is for you if you are on the brink, cusp, or inception of great things and would like to feel grounded and ready, physically, mentally, and spiritually, to step into life’s mysteries fully embodied, resourced by your intuition, and supported by your dancing community. Perhaps you are at the threshold of a new era, or a new state of being, or a new relationship. At our essence, we are always at the threshold of the next moment, hoping to meet it fully with aliveness, breath, presence, and love.
