“The groove is so mysterious. We're born with it and we lose it and the world seems to split apart before our eyes into stupid and cool. When we get it back, the world unifies around us, and both stupid and cool fall away.
I am grateful to those who are keepers of the groove. The babies and the grandmas who hang on to it and help us remember when we forget that any kind of dancing is better than no dancing at all.” -Lynda Barry.
Coming Home is more than just a metaphor--there is an actual current of energy running through our lives, always wanting to carry us in a continuous fluid motion. But life is full of obstacles and we tend to oblige them, resisting the flow and getting stuck in our heads, out of our bodies and disconnecting from our deepest nature, the energy of fluid motion. What would it be like to navigate fluidly within your own life? To meet every obstacle with the ease and grace of fluid energy?
The 5Rhythms maps teach us how energy flows through our bodies and through our lives. In this workshop we will explore the foundation of the Rhythms: Flowing. We will dance ourselves into our own expression of Flow, feet first, one step at a time, so that we may know the grace and beauty of our deepest true nature.
We will practice the basic 5Rhthyms tools of keeping the body in motion, focusing on our breath and unlocking gateways. The world is ours--lets enjoy it!
Let's just Dance.
Ray says: I have danced 5Rhythms for the last 10 years and other forms of Movements for the last 15 years. 5Rhythms has transformed me in many ways on all levels of my being. After living in this hardened masculine body for most of my life, I have come into my feminine essence, which continues to evolve.
