The 5Rhythms is a moving meditation practice, an improvisational form of dance. This is a map of how energy moves. It shows us the patterns, rhythms and cycles of life. Flowing connects us to our feminine nature. Staccato connects us to our masculine nature. Chaos dissolves and integrates these two energies. As a result we find transformation in Lyrical. From this transformative space we are then connected to Stillness. The nature of the stillness dance invites compassion and connection to self, partners and community. Each of these rhythms is present within us at all times.
We have discovered that every person has a dominant rhythm. This is the primary energy that moves and inspires the unique expression of who are. We investigate these qualities in order to understand ourselves more. In learning about our “home” rhythm, we can look at both the light and shadow aspects to see what moves us and what stops us from moving.
How comfortable are you in your body? Some say, “Home is where the heart is”. If so, then the body we are given is our one true home. Through this method we can learn to love the home we have been given, and appreciate the gift of this body and this life.
Find your home rhythm. Learn to know yourself better. Become fascinated with yourself. In doing so you will better serve the world and all those you love.
