5Rhythms®: Grief, Loss and the Body in Motion

Apr 20 - 22, 2018 Begins in 4 months
with Davida Taurek & Peter Selwyn

Have you experienced loss and the natural emotions of sadness, anger, fear, and love? How do you process your losses and move through your life? Unfortunately, many of us have not found safe and effective ways to express these emotions, and we can feel stuck, both emotionally and at times physically, with the cumulative burden of our unfinished business.

5Rhythms®: Gateways

Apr 22 - 27, 2018 Begins in 4 months
with Davida Taurek

Come to dance and be danced! Move until you are moved. Dance until the dancer disappears and only the dance remains. —Gabrielle Roth
The gateway of the body is a powerful vessel that allows us to move and be moved. In a wild world of distraction, do you know how to find your way into focus and connection? The 5Rhythms teaches us skills and tools to use in our everyday life that help us facilitate this union. If we have the courage to move the body, the heart and mind can follow. Come open the gateway to your potential and see what is waiting for you on the other side.
