Embodied Movement Meditation
5Rhythms is a dynamic movement practice—a practice of being in your body—that ignites creativity, connection, and community.
While a seemingly simple process, the 5Rhythms practice facilitates deep and unending explorations, moving the dancer beyond self-imposed limitations and isolation into new depths of creativity and connection.
Each rhythm is interpreted by individuals in a uniquely personal way, opening them to a new sense of freedom and possibility that is both surprising and healing, exhilarating as well as deeply restorative. It is, in essence, “exercise for the right brain.”
“Put your mind in your feet and your body in the beat”
When we practice 5Rhythms, we learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. It reconnects us to cycles of birth & death and hooks us into humanity and the spirit of all living things. Within the group context, we create connection and community and hone our instincts and our intuitions. We are made up of all walks of life – every culture, religion, race, gender, age and sexual preference are welcome.///
5Rhythms transcends dance. The movement is the medicine, the meditation, and the metaphor. Together we peel back layers, lay masks down, and dance till we disappear…Only to rediscover ourselves through it all.
The 5Rhythms – Flowing Staccato Chaos Lyrical Stillness® – are states of Being. They are a map to everywhere we want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional and intellectual.
They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self.
Gabrielle Roth’s Medicine Mandala
The 5Rhythms are simple, defined, and spacious Maps for personal exploration. Diving into these Maps give us the time and space to luxuriate in the teachings, to focus on a facet, to break through resistance and dance on through to the other side. To move mindfully, unpredictably, and creatively with like-minded souls.
“We all share the wound of fragmentation. And we can all share in the cure of unification. Healing is the unification of all our forces — the powers of being, feeling, knowing, and seeing.”
“Erik is a brilliant, sensitive, informed and inspired healer. His hands listen deeply and he sees the body with tender loving truth”
—Gabrielle Roth – 5Rhythms author
