Workshop Details

God, Sex and the Body is and always will be a profound and integral part of the 5Rhythms® curriculum. It has personally informed my way of being, my teaching style, and, most deeply, my acceptance of who I am and who I am not. – Gabrielle Roth
“In the series of maps that comprise the dancing path of the 5Rhythms movement practice, God, Sex and the Body is an initiation into being an embodied soul,” says Jonathan Horan. “It is a deeply personal journey, a celebration like no other, and a ritual for the hot and holy you.
“This journey is a call to stretch our imaginations with a long-forgotten innocence and move through a spectrum of feminine and masculine archetypes; to dress up these characters through ritual theater, get inside them, and give them expression. No one else can be a man or woman exactly like you. No one else can embody your soul, project your magic, or embody your specific curiosity. Part lover, part artist, part god, we were born to rock the world and feel our way into each other’s hearts.
“Grounded in the 5Rhythms movement practice, this workshop can liberate and inspire us to emerge a bit more fascinated with one another and the mystery of our experience in the world.”
There may be opportunity for a sweat lodge on Wednesday afternoon, weather and logistics permitting. (Sweat lodges are $50-$25 sliding scale, with no one turned away for lack of funds).
