Under every fear there is a treasure waiting to be received — a gift attained through feeling. But so often we avoid feeling. So, clever are we at avoiding fear that simply acknowledging its presence can be a monumental task. In this workshop we will create a safe container to move with these questions: What do I fear? How does this fear feel? How does fear move in me? We will put aside the rational mind and delve into the intuition of body to find the answers.

This workshop will be limited in size so I can work individually with each participant. I will schedule a brief phone call with each dancer prior to the workshop to prepare for our time together and will recommend homework to further deepen the work.


I invite you to join a committed group of dancers in a journey of finding our emotional soul.

In this 5-part series, we will invite our emotions to be felt as sensation and bring their truths and teachings into our very being. We will lovingly search and transform the inner structures we have created and undergo a metamorphosis of seeing and feeling our old scars as they become symbols of wisdom and healing.

We will move closer to our fear, how it freezes us or makes us run, closer to our anger, how it calls us and burns within us, closer to our sadness, the grief and confusion, into our joy and delight in life, and finally into true, embodied compassion for ourselves, for others, and for this world.

Prerequisite: This workshop series explores the 5Rhythms Heartbeat map — the 2nd level of the 5Rhythms practice. To begin this series the student should be familiar with the 5Rhythms Waves map (1st level). To that end, at least 10-hours of 5Rhythms Waves level work is required to begin the series. Each module of this series builds upon the previous module. Therefore, each module is prerequisite to all subsequent modules.

Registration Policy

Pre-Registration Required


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.
