Invisible threads are the strongest ties. — Friedrich Nietzsche
What are the invisible threads that connect you in this life? How can we use the path of the 5Rhythms movement practice to help us explore the connections we want most? By fostering the intimate union of breath and movement, we follow a path that leads us out of isolation and into connection.
The 5Rhythms is a moving meditation practice. It is a map of how energy moves that shows us the patterns, rhythms, and cycles of life. Here is an overview of the 5Rhythms: Flowing connects us to our feminine nature. Staccato connects us to our masculine nature. Chaos marries and integrates these two energies and as a result we find transformation in Lyrical. From this transformative space we are then connected to Stillness.
In order to understand the dance one must be still. And in order to truly understand stillness one must dance. - Rumi
Energy moves in waves. Waves move in rhythms. Rhythms move in patterns. Patterns move in cycles. A human being is just that. Nothing more. Nothing less. A Dance. – Gabrielle Roth
“Do you know where you land in the sacred map of beginning, middle, and end?” Lucia Horan asks. “Do you want to be fluid and graceful in the face of change? The 5Rhythms movement practice invites us to become agile creatures of the present moment.
