5Rhythms® – Waves – Workshops

Quote

Movement is the movement of change. In my experience, if you put your psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is the medicine. Each of us has the power and responsibility to heal ourselves, to be our own medicine man or woman. Awakening our innate powers of being, loving, knowing, seeing and healing involves ongoing work at all levels and in all dimensions of our self. In your deepest center, you are the stillpoint. You are the rhythm beyond stillness, the feeling beyond compassion, the sexual energy beyond celibacy, the life force beyond death, the vibration beyond inspiration. The moving center is within you.

What are the 5Rhythms®


What are the 5Rhythms?

The 5Rhythms were developed by Gabrielle Roth. It is a dynamic, expressive, meditative dance form which strives for wholeness of body, heart and spirit.

This dance form is presented in a wave. This wave starts with flowing, then goes into staccato, chaos and lyrical and it ends in stillness.

Flow is the rhythm of the power of being present, following the feet, earth, flowing movement, coming home into your body, breathing in, receiving.

Staccato is the rhythm of love, your pelvis, awakening your fire, your heart being carried and fed by fire, beginning and ending, focus, clarity, expression, structure, purity, exhale, giving, protecting.

Chaos is the rhythm of the power of knowing, emptying the mind, water, letting go, to the beat of staccato and the flowing feminine.

Lyrical is the rhythm of the power of being, of our creative beings, hands, air, light, spaciousness, weightlessness.

Stillness is the rhythm of the power of healing, of wholeness, unity, breath, being present in here and now.

 

Why do we dance the 5Rhythms?
Our body is our bible, our temple with a library as big as the universe. Because we trust in the wisdom of our dear body, our home, we step into the learning of healing transformation without effort.
Some of us experience traumatic experiences and almost everybody carries negative experiences with them, saved in the unconscious. Because of this we are often trapped in spirals of negative thoughts and judgments. And on top of these negative experiences, protecting mechanisms take form. Caught in all of this, it is very logical that we can’t believe in happiness and fortune on any level. Because of this, we have lots of convictions and programming from which we don’t live truthfully. To disarm this, we dance the 5Rhythms, to awaken as a purely loving being. To taste life fully in all its facets. To live fully in every moment.
To live animated, with soul.

There is Sweat Your Prayers for all the dancers that want to dance a wave without guidance with words.
Sweat Your Prayers is a 5Rhythms® dynamic meditation practice where we move through the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. To create a moment together to arrive home by ourselves, well or not in connection with each other. To move together free with what is in the moment.
Before the wave we start with the bodyparts: bringing our bodies into movement through conscious attention to each bodypart. After this ‘warming up’ there will be no more support with words, only by music. We suggest that newcomers attend a few instructed classes before attending Sweat Your Prayers, as that will enhance your embodied understanding of the 5Rhythms practice.

~ Gabrielle Roth. (Book:Sweat Your Prayers)
To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy.

 

There are open class teachings and there are Sweat your Prayers.

“PRAYERS INTO TRANCE”
5 Januari
12h00 – 18h00
in Mortsel (Antwerp)
led in English/Dutch

______________________________

 

In this workshop we will manifest our deepest wish, our strongest desire.
We dance three times a wave to reclaim our wish, our desire, our intention, our passion in the dance. That what you want to live NOW, but what’s still living in your back garden.
Three times we will dance with this from a different perspective.
From here we will manifest our statement so that the seed is planted.
Watching carefully how your seed wants to be cared for every day by you in a full attention of love until it is ready to be born. Giving your roots that what they need to grow, fully supported by your love. Unite yourself with it and make it happen in a full bath of attention, dancing that what you want to manifest.
Three times is a powerful manifestation.
Welcome!

“The power of COMPASSION – The healing of FORGIVENESS”
Heartbeat workshop
8/9 februari
10h30 – 17h30
in Mortsel (Antwerpen)
led in English and Dutch

_____________________________________________

 

In this Heartbeat workshop we will meet, move and embrace our emotions: fear, anger, sadness, joy, and compassion. From here we invite forgiveness. I approach emotions as a power source for deep healing. The more we allow them into the movement and receive them, the freer our heart can feel afterwards. Emotions serve us if we do not hold them in a destructive way. This can be done by ignoring them, to put them on hold, until the bomb explodes. This can show itself in aggression, in hysteria, in manipulative behavior and or a physical ailment. In our childhood, we usually have not learned to deal with our emotions. We are hardly ever taught emotionally. Afterwards it will only get harder. Both at work and in our relationships, especially to ourselves.
So I love to guide you and the whole group with a lot of empathy and compassion to meet yourself and each other in all these energetic layers of our heart.

“Sacred Space”
5 weekends
ongoing closed group for women only
in Mortsel (Antwerp)
led in Dutch and English

_____________________________________

 

Both women and men have suffered blockages around intimacy with himself.
In this ongoing for women, we go deepen together in eight Sundays in our natural power, our vitale lifeforce, also called libido and with the necessary labels.
And we also unconsciously take the beliefs of our parents. How are your parents looking to this energy? Do they honor this natural power?
We can purify our womb as a woman of beliefs and of energies that our womb defiled. Our womb is our core, normally a basis of bearing love. Here houses our soul if we consciously can relax in it. From here on, to breathe and to embrace ourselves, gives our heart to possibility to worn by our own source and ensures that it is worn by an warm beloved home. As a result, we are creating our own security to us to surrender to life. To learn to live from our intuition, by trial and error to learn trust. Because there’s nothing to lose, only to gain, more and more to learn to enjoy in the here and now.

It is an energy that is sexually abused all over the world. An energy that evokes a desire with which many of us look outside themselves to fulfill. While it is an energy to honor deeply. If we receive this energy and not abusing it, it heal our body and soul, which gives your spirit space to create for what you come. She gives a unnameable joy of life and it is the core of unconditional love.

We work with different exercises to soften our body, to get more body awareness.

We will bring our focus through excersises on:
Grounding and breath
Receptivity
Sensuality and passion
Bounderies
Surrender into mystery
Inner joy
Spirit
Releasing our emotions

“SEXUAL GROUNDING”
5 Rhythms® waves workshop
workshop for men and woman
8 – 12 July 2020
in Mortsel (Antwerp)
led in English/Dutch
_____________________________________

 

We will move from our sexual energy in a conscious way during this workshop. Who are we in this energy ? The live – force of which we are born. A vulnerable power, creative in a natural way, out of which we let rise all kind of magnificent new creations.

“Living our pure tender beauty in a passionate field of gratitude.
Because we are sexual human beings, YES or YES!”

Most people do not dare to live their life from this basis. This energy has been locked partly or even completely. Others are just repressing it, same for men or woman. Can we allow ourselves to stand in this, and how are we handling this energy?
And Yes there is still a big taboo in this sexual field. With most of us this starts during our education. We all know that this is the field where the most abuse is happening (consciously and unconsciously).
On several levels we get sucked or we are deceived by the temptations of the other or the media. Or we try to ignore it, what is impossibly in our subconscious mind.
We start living all kind of things, which fulfill us for a moment, because we do not allow this life-force to flow. We do not feel us satisfied. So we get all kind of addictions to fill this gap (sugar, media, TV, shopping, alcohol, …). As well as sex-addiction, where we miss something fundamental, hence the title of this workshop: “Sexual grounding”.
These addictions are not there to be condemned; they can be a teacher to see when you do not feel yourself fulfilled, yes I say clearly “feel fulfilled”.

Mostly this is THE subject in relations, while we sink into power and powerlessness as we can see all over the world. Just because we are separated from our feelings and we cannot be clear to the other.
I invite all of you to meet yourself in a sensual, passionate and intimate way. Allowing ourselves to be true Living our life from a conscious body, natural and passionately!
