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.
“Through the 5Rhythms we learn to honor each cycle of change in our lives. This retreat will be an investigation into the art of graceful transitions through the map of the 5Rhythms: flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness. The cycles that rule us are in constant motion. Through movement we practice less resistance and more acceptance. As energy flows where attention goes, we practice becoming aligned to the truth in our lives. Where there is an ending, there is also a beginning. Wherever we find ourselves, conscious effort is required to achieve the results we desire. We move. We practice the art of transition and freedom, embodying grace and awareness with each step we take.”
Please note: There will be a celebratory Thanksgiving dinner in the Esalen Lodge.
