Sweat Your Prayers® is a gathering where we bring our individual 5Rhythms practice and move through the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness with intention and in community.
This is a moving meditation practice with music and very minimal instruction. There's no step to learn. We dance our own dance. Everybody's welcomed!
Please come ready to sweat, bring your curiosity, a water bottle and your friends.
