The 5Rhythms moving meditation gives us the tools to explore, listen and give space to our bodies in order to experience freedom. Through the discipline of being in our bodies, this movement practice inspires us: to rise from the darkness to the light; to evolve to our fullest potential in this lifetime; to emerge, breathing in fresh air, from stagnant feelings produced by our habitual series of routine movements and postures; to create desire away from boredom to be able to embrace life to its fullest & follow the path to truth.
Whales breaching is a very elegant, enthusiastic and spectacular way of emerging joyfully out of the water. As human beings, let's be inspired by the dance of these amazing creatures to seek ways to express ourselves with grace and elegance, taking powerful steps toward our own growth & realization as individuals and in community.
We will emerge through the 5Rhythms Maps: in Flowing we find our feet in harmony with the Earth element, in Staccato we build our strength and determination fueled by Fire, in Chaos we let go of the weight that keeps us down witnessed by Water, in Lyrical we experience the lightness of our being enveloped by Air, and in Stillness we rest on the feeling of completion suspended in Ether.
