Last Fall I fell in love with my heart and many other hearts beating ardently in the chest of the delightful tribe of the Gorge in Oregon. Last month I embraced love in San Francisco and I was embraced by the bursting love of everyone in this home community, my family. And soon I will carry with me all of this emotional amazing support and powerful strength all the way to Asia, to Singapore, offering a weekend of what will be their first 5Rhythms Heartbeat workshop.
As a paladin of the Heart Warrior I will be standing respectful and proud of the honor and the commitment I made to bring my offering to the world. It is such a gift to be able to share this practice to many in the four directions. I am ready to step together with all the hearts that I will be meeting over there, into the journey of the emotions. Feeling already the inspiration that comes from that land and the ancestors that populated myriad of islands, navigated perilous seas and witnessed in awe the power of tremendous volcanoes. The history of that is still there. Deep in the bones and in the soul of the people. It can’t be denied, it can’t be hidden, as much as it can’t be let out of control. It’s a deep warrior power that resides in the heart.
It's not an easy and straight path. It takes time and courage, and openness. After many years of trials and errors, gurus and shamans meetings, explorations of many traditional and alternative directions, I am still learning. And, if nothing else, welcoming errors as another possible way to grow. Still learning how to give proper space and directions to all the responses that my body, mind and heart collect and process to transform my energy into action. Standing with the full energy of a peaceful warrior, with clear mind, strong heart and fluid body.
The 5Rhythms is and has been my best map to step fully supported in all of this.

Dancing it all. Eternally.
