Workshop Details

Belonging is a powerful theme that is directly related to the capacity for intimacy that is in every human being. In this five-day retreat, we’ll explore the relational capacity of the heart. Through movement, feeling, and perceptual explorations, we’ll refine the compass of our genuine longing and fundamental belonging.
Using the awakening energy of dancing through the 5Rhythms® and Soul Motion™ movement practices, we’ll move with the grace of our belonging and the struggles of our exclusion. Through the organismic movements and sounding in the inquiry style of Continuum Montage, we’ll explore the intelligent dynamics of the elements of water, air, fire, earth, and space in our bodies, thus deepening our inherent connection to our wild, breathing, planetary body.
Through movement and ritual, we’ll explore the meaning of how and where we belong in ourselves and our lives, and the places we feel exiled from ourselves and others. We will actively step into the participation required to belong, responding to the call that stirs a deep inner longing to fall into the place we call home. We will experience the possibility of resting through our bodies and listening to the silences within; to trust and surrender as gravity repeatedly tells us “I have a place for you: it is called here.”
