~How do we trust our heart again despite the scars sculpted by the heartbreaks it has inevitably experienced and let the flame rise again ?
~How do we trust the unpredictability of life and let things fall effortlessly in to place?
~How do we trust the feeling of joy and expansion without expecting something to crush it?
~How do we trust the spirit and the wisdom bigger then our single self ? The mystery .
During the workshop we will be practicing allowing the fear and anxiety to dissolve and to move into a place of trust. We will explore the possibility of trusting that we won’t go off the road just because we cannot see around the bend. Opening to the possibility of trust that we will be able to see, understand and define our experiences as they unfold in the present.
We will use the 5Rhythms ® to sink deeper into our bodies and hearts on the beautiful, rejuvenating island of Ikaria. We will spend the first three days grounding ourselves in the body and the Waves level. We will use the body parts as gateways into each of the 5Rhythms (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness) and invite awareness of our sensations, temperature, weight and pulsing of our bodies. Centering ourselves instead of floating away in our fantasies or being devoured by our thoughts.
This exploration of physical embodiment prepares us for the rest of the retreat where we will explore the emotions of the Heartbeat™ map: Fear that protects, Anger that defends, Sadness that releases, Joy that uplifts and Compassion that unites us.
We will be supported and nurtured by the wild, unspoiled nature of Ikaria. Arrive early and stay longer to enjoy all that the island has to offer and tune in to the relaxed, flowing rhythm of life.
+++ We will be supported and additionally held throughout by Piero with his live drumming and creative use of other instruments to enhance our exploration.
This Workshop is open to all, though we strongly recommend you attend at least one 5Rhythms class before you join us.
+++ The retreat counts towards future 5Rhythms trainings (3 days Waves, 3 days Heartbeat).

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.
