What are those 5 Rhythms® anyway? A Key, not a Cage: Moving through resistance

You are invited to a rare and special opportunity to explore the 5 Rhythms® Movement Meditation Practice in Phoenix, AZ.

In this half day workshop, we will discover just what those 5 Rhythms are, how they move in around and through our body as tools to invite limitless expression of self in the physical.

Beyond just the Rhythms alone, we will unveil how this map acts as a key, not a cage - how this structure invites more freedom of expression. Together we will explore how the 5 Rhythms map invites us to surrender and thus move through resistance, moving from the "shadow" into the "light"

Online Reg:

Every dancer, seasoned and new experiences these shadow bits, these resistance points - come discover how Flow invites us to break through inertia, Staccato teaches us how to express our truth from the center, without tension, Chaos grounds the practice of holding our center in the storm, without becoming confused, Lyrical teaches us how move with effortless grace, without spacing-out and Stillness invites us to soften and pause, without going numb.

We will explore these shadow pieces and others with a willingness to allow their presence, allow them to move so we can make a new relationship to our resistance so it too merely becomes part of the dance. Another key, versus another cage.

These are the focus points which transform this practice from a dance into a meditation and when our body learns this language, we in turn learn the language of our body, thus bridging the gap and allowing this bodily wisdom to penetrate our awareness space and allow for healing in this moment and the next.

We will also explore the nature of the third Rhythm: Chaos in depth, understanding it's truly grounded nature and how to slow dance with our own still point while the bodies and beats pound in and around us. Developing this skill will serve not only in the dance but in the world as finding the still point in chaos may just be the most important lesson in our time.

Then we will close with a full high vibration wave, inviting our psyche to be put in motion to ground in all that has been learned and discovered in and about your own unique body and it's potential for expression of anything and everything alive, present and real for you in this moment. And the next!
