Our bodies are the libraries of our personal, ancestral and collective stories. They hold the extraordinary wisdom and details of our lives. We carry imprinted memories that have manifested into our accomplishments and struggles. The remains in our bodies directly influence our personal health, thoughts, relationships, and actions.
The Practice of Somatic Archaeology invites us to unearth some of the hidden or stored memories to uncover and remember our own myths for personal and planetary healing. Our bodies facilitate this process through breath, sound, feelings and movement.
Through the transformative maps of the 5Rhythms® we will discover, express, release and acknowledge those story pieces that are ready to open inside our bodies. When we embody our truth and have it be witnessed and honoured we can move with more awareness, forgiveness, compassion, and understanding.
Together we will explore the healing salve of Storytelling. When shared respectfully stories can bring new meaning and perspective to our lives as we interpret our experiences, finding reconciliation and acceptance.
This immersion is open to all. Some 5Rhythms Dance experience is recommended but not required.
