Workshop Details

Trance is a tricky place, a place not many understand. It’s a mindful state that only happens when you get out of your way and fall into your true self so deeply that something inside clicks and you are simultaneously being and witnessing yourself.
—Gabrielle Roth
We all long for a place to call home, a place where we feel totally connected and at peace. But there is no home unless we find it in ourselves. The way home is a journey into trance. Trance is an injection of spirit that can carry us for days and weeks through subways and supermarkets, head-trips and heartaches.
In trance we move into the bigger picture. And from this vantage point we can see into the dark of our own hearts and relinquish all the things that haunt us. If we let go it takes us past our ordinary self into our luminous self. Any energy fully embodied can be a gateway.
Building on 15 years of refining and offering this specific 5Rhythms® map to students around the world, this is the first time Jonathan is expanding the Journey Into Trance map into a longer six-day format. This deep immersion will offer soul seekers the path to drop into the deepest dances of their lives. Journey Into Trance is devoted to unwinding the mind and moving through specific maps and meditations to more deeply traverse the world of trance.
This workshop is open to those who've been dancing a lifetime or as a first dive into 5Rhythms practice. The hours of this workshop qualify for the Waves requirement for the 5Rhythms teacher training.
