The healing path has a trajectory. Gabrielle called this, The Path of The Wounded Healer. It is here that we look closely at our healing process. We mark both where we are and where we want to be. We dance through the five stages of healing in relationship to being the victim, the survivor, the healer, the transformer and eventually the one who rests in compassionate service.
This seven part series will dance us through the shadows, into the gateways of the emotions and will be completed with the dance of emptiness.
It is my belief that our most sacred task in life is to transform the most difficult things we have been through into our greatest strengths. These are the stories of our true nature, our resilience, our vulnerability and our strength. It is here one may learn how to move with what is and transform it to what we want it to be.
In the Heartbeat Map, we investigate what is moving through the shores of the heart. Through understanding the relationship of the emotional polarities, we come to respect and appreciate what we have been through. Without fear, we do not experience courage. Without anger, we cannot experience forgiveness. Without love, we cannot experience grief. Without, loss, we cannot experience or appreciate the full spectrum of joy. Without all of these qualities, we cannot know the true nature of compassion.
You are invited to join this journey of movement and awareness, focused on how emotions transform the heart. This map is Gabrielle Roth’s living wisdom. I am here to pass this gift on to you so it can be carried in your own bones and blood.
Each session will be primarily focused on the 5Rhythms® moving meditation. We will close each movement session with a 10-15 minute seated meditation, focused on one of the Buddhist Heart Practices. Included in the group will be optional sharing and a question and answer period.

2 weeks access to recorded content for worldwide dancers in all time zones.
We will send you a Zoom link to the workshop the two days before it begins. Please download Zoom prior to the start of the workshop.
When you link into our Zoom class, you will be in a "waiting room" until our host admits you. The waiting room screen indicates that you are in the right place.
This workshop starts at 9:30 am PT (Pacific Time) on Saturday. We will begin admitting people five minutes prior to the session. Please arrive promptly. It is important that you attend the full session. If you are more than twenty minutes late, we would prefer you to use the recorded session after.
Your microphone will be set to mute. Please do not unmute yourself as it creates a major disturbance for all participants.
Creating a safe container:
We ask that you not share the zoom link with anyone who has not registered for this workshop as we want to build a safe and aligned container.
You may turn off your camera at any point if you would prefer not to be seen.
If anyone engages in inappropriate behavior during the class, they will be removed by the Host.
If you would like to pin another participant, we request you ask for their consent in the Chat via private message, respecting others boundaries and forms of consent.
We ask that you do not post in the chat box during the session until the end when you can leave feedback. If you are having technological issues or have any questions, please send a message directly to the host or co-host and they will answer to the best of their ability.
We ask you to not record the session, and not post any screenshots where other participants are viewable. I will be recording our session in a speaker view, so no one will be included in this recording besides Lucia.
We kindly remind you that this content is for registered participants only. Please do not share in any way.
Make sure your computer or device is plugged in or charged.
For optimal sound quality, hardwire into a speaker is best. This can be done through an auxiliary channel. Though it is possible, we do not recommend using bluetooth or anything wireless for the best sound and video quality.
