Love is not a mood, but a dynamic way of being. - Gabrielle Roth
The spontaneous heart is one that knows how to love and be loved. The Heartbeat map is a guide to how our emotional energy moves and morphs. In this practice we embody the art of being a fluid emotional athlete. This map teaches us how to navigate the emotional terrain of life without getting stuck, holding on, or pushing away.
We will explore how the body has been shaped by our emotions, tracking when the heart is open and when it is closed. As waves of feeling move us, we learn how to express emotion in a healthy and creative way. Through the embodiment of the 5Rhythms practice, you will be shown skills and techniques to take home and apply in your daily life. This workshop is designed for everyone, of every age, and shape.
In this workshop we will integrate the stillness of Buddhist mindfulness meditation with the moving meditations of the 5Rhythms®. The Buddha encouraged us to bring wise attention to every aspect of our lives.
In sitting meditation, we have the opportunity to observe the mind and body at rest through silent introspection. In the practice of the 5Rhythms, we engage in mindfulness while in motion. The 5Rhythms is a map that teaches us how energy moves. The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together mirror the dance of life and open the door to peace, well being and balance.
All workshop hours contribute to 5Rhythms® teacher training pr
WORKSHOP LEVEL DETAILS
In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
