 ~ what if Fear were a true-blue friend – pricking our skin in the presence of danger – holding us close and moving us from harm’s way and tucking us in tight and urging us to preserve the safety of what we hold most dear?

~ what if Anger were a sure fire sign that we still give a shit – that some things have gone too far – that we might be willing to make a move or draw a line or risk reaching out or stepping up or speaking true on behalf of what we love?

~ what if Sorrow were a shimmering, wavering thread – weaving us imperfectly, irrevocably, into the infinite fabric of lovers and losers and grievers, guiding us toward and through the soft-bellied mysteries of life and loss and renewal and time?

~ what if Joy were a gift – an amazement, a renewal, a moment’s miracle – as refreshing and unbidden as morning light gilding the grass, shared laughter releasing the tensions, a thunderstorm over thirsty land?

~ what if Compassion were simple, available, easy – not a big deal – an enlivened response to the moment, and to the ways that our people and our circles and our places need us – honest, connected, and full of heart?

We will move with these enquiries, held and guided by the dynamic maps of the 5Rhythms®, and from the perspective that emotional energies – the ones we are most comfortable with, as well as the ones we may have a tricky relationship with – are expressions of life-force, intelligence, and love.

And we will dance. Take Heart.

The 5Rhythms® is a powerful movement practice which guides participants to re-connect with their own innate body-knowledge, wellness, and wisdom. Each of the 5Rhythms – Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness – is a distinct field of energy-in-motion, and each one holds specific teachings. We know from experience that when we move our bodies, emotions naturally arise. In the Heartbeat™ map we use our movement practice to enliven, articulate, embody and befriend the intelligence, fluidity, and fullness of our own hearts.

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.
