Your body:

A temple? An adventure playground? A burden? A delight? Probably all of these and more. For many of us it has also been a crime scene. Thankfully the body is also a miraculous medicine bag. It has evolved to heal. It can heal torn flesh, it can heal wounded hearts and it can heal wounded minds.

Many people who have experienced abuse have discovered the healing power of movement. Yoga, running, walking, dance . . . anything that gets our bodies movement can free us to heal in our own way and at our own pace.

Healing in Motion is a one day event in two parts:

The first element is an introduction to simple yet profoundly healing movement tools. Dancing to great tunes we'll explore the 5Rhythms wave. There are no steps or routines and it is suitable for all body shapes, sizes and abilities. Two left feet are welcome and if you're carrying a bit of extra weight it's all the more to move with! The wave gets us out of our heads and back home to our bodies.

The second element is a movement celebration. Celebration? Yes, a celebration that we are here and we are healing. Having fun is most definitely in the mix!

Who is it for?

Anyone who has experienced abuse and has already taken steps in their own healing. This isn't therapy and we won't be sharing our stories. It isn't suitable if you are in the first stages of addressing your experience of abuse. Get in touch if you are unsure. You are also welcome to bring a friend on the understanding that everyone present is there to take part – no observers thanks.

Who is running it?

Christopher Boylan is an accredited 5Rhythms teacher currently training in the Heartbeat level of the practice. He has 19 years experience of 5Rhythms and completed his training with Gabrielle Roth and faculty in 2008. His own experience of healing through 5Rhythms has inspired him to offer this event.
