What is 5Rhythms?
5Rhythms is a movement meditation practice devised by Gabrielle Roth in the late 1970s. It draws from indigenous and world traditions using tenets of shamanistic, ecstatic, mystical and eastern philosophy. It also draws from Gestalt therapy, the human potential movement and transpersonal psychology. Fundamental to the practice is the idea that everything is energy, and moves in waves, patterns & rhythms.
Roth describes the practice as a soul journey, and says that by moving the body, releasing the heart, and freeing the mind, one can connect to the essence of the soul, the source of inspiration in which an individual has unlimited possibility and potential.
The five rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness, and when danced in sequence, are known as a “Wave.”
Shakti Rising Workshop
Shakti is the energy that pervades all things, is the primordial cosmic energy, and represents the dynamic forces that move through the entire universe. Shakti is also the concept or personification of the divine feminine creative power. Shakti is the energy responsible for creation, and for transformation.
We have chosen this concept as the theme of our event – the connection to, and the expansion of, our Shakti, using Yoga, Dance, Movement & Meditation as our medium:
- Flowing Vinyasa Yoga sequences to feel into the body, connect to the mind, & warm up the muscles
- 5Rhythms Wave of mindful movement and freestyle dance
- Deep Relaxation following the stillness of the final rhythm
- Short Meditation to deepen the connection
- Community connection with drinks & healthy snacks
Energy moves in Waves.
Waves move in patterns.
Patterns move in rhythms.
A human being is just that —energy, waves, patterns, rhythms.
Nothing more. Nothing less. A dance.
breathe. smile. love.
