5 Rhythms® Movement Meditation
THE BODY IS MY TEMPLE
„Begin the feeling of wonder with your own body, because that is the closest to you. The closest nature has approached to you, the closest the divine has come to you, is through the body. In your body is the water of the oceans, in your body is the fire of the stars and the suns, in your body is the air, your body is made of earth. Your body represents the whole existence, all the elements. And what a transformation! What a metamorphosis! Look at the earth and then look at your body – what a transformation, and you have never marveled about it! Dust has become divine; what greater mystery is possible? What greater miracles are you waiting for? And you see the miracle happening every day.“ OSHO
On this workshop we are:
»moving to become fluid and fully alive in our sensuous body.
» experiencing our physical heart space to expand into the love atmosphere and rejoice in all its expressions
» surrendering the mind to our feet and let the intuiton guide us in the mystery
» allowing the body to be danced by our soul’s longing and to give in to crativity and transformation
» honoring the spirit with our presence and breath and welcome all the elements and healing forces
Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms® map will serve us as a vehicle to get access to our Body’s guiding wisdom to it’s hidden treasures and gifts, yet to be revealed; using an embodied language of movement and dance.
All workshop hours contribute to the 5R teacher training prerequisites.
When: July 20 – 24th 2020, every day 10.00am – 2pm
5Rhythms® is a creative movement and dance meditation developed by Gabrielle Roth. Collectively, the five universal qualities of being – flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness – create a wave of energy that allows us to get in touch with our bodies and innermost feelings. It is one way to become aware of our body, heart, mind, soul and breath – to feel alive. Movement by movement we connect with the wisdom of our bodies and unleash creativity and healing power, regardless of our age, shape, gender, or physical endurance level.
We move through the 5Rhyhtms alone, in partners, in community, often with music from various genres and sometimes also without any music.
