Through the practices of 5Rhythms dance, mindfulness meditation, and self-care, we weave together a weekend of healing and celebration. In times of turmoil and change, self-care, compassion, and kindness are qualities required to help us resource and renew. Looking back at all we have experienced in 2021, it is clear that many of us are exhausted. In order to begin to move forward with energy, passion, and creativity, it is important to seed these qualities in our daily life.

Do you need to integrate more self-care into daily life? Would you like to be better resourced and have more energy? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, then you are in perfect alignment to participate in this workshop.

The 5Rhythms is an externalization process that through movement, releases and balances the systems of the body. It is a method focused on presence versus performance, while seated meditation offers us a process of quieting the heart and mind, allowing for stillness and integration. Bringing both practices together mirrors the dance of life. We come together to create an environment that cultivates and nurtures joy, calmness, and ease.

Each session will be primarily focused on Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms moving meditation practice. We will complete each practice with a 10-15 seated meditation. Included will be a discourse on 5Rhythms, Dharma and self-care. All practices taught during this course lend to the experience and wisdom of resourcing and renewing our vital life energy.

No experience is necessary. All workshop hours contribute to 5Rhythms® Teachers Training.
