5Rhythms®: A Graceful Journey

Jul 29 - Aug 03, 2018 Begins in 5 months
with Lucia Horan

Energy moves in waves. Waves move in rhythms. Rhythms move in patterns. Patterns move in cycles. A human being is just this. Nothing more. Nothing less. A dance.
–Gabrielle Roth
Through the map of the 5Rhythms movement practice, we investigate the art of graceful transitions. How are you at beginning, following through, and ending? This practice helps us understand the stages of the creative process. In doing so, we learn where we are moving and where we get stuck. With this knowledge we can bring balance and integrity into each stage of the creative process of life.

5Rhythms® Moon Lodge: Honoring the Sacred Feminine

Aug 03 - 05, 2018 Begins in 5 months
with Lucia Horan

Join us as we journey into the Moon Lodge, a weekend of tribal and ritual healing for women. How empowered are you as a woman navigating this world? What is your relationship to the feminine and her wisdom? Even today, many women do not feel the freedom to be fully empowered. The 5Rhythms is a direct path to embodiment and empowerment. By showing up in a practice of presence, one can begin to clear the past and live fully in the present.

with Lucia Horan

Love is not a mood, but a dynamic way of being. – Gabrielle Roth
The spontaneous heart is one that knows how to love and be loved. The 5Rhythms Heartbeat map is a guide to how our emotional energy moves and morphs. In this practice we embody the art of being a fluid, emotional athlete. This map teaches us how to navigate the emotional terrain of life without getting stuck, holding on, or pushing away.
