Sunday Waves 5-7pm

January 31, 2010

It is not about getting lost in the dance, but being found in the dance. – Gabrielle Roth

Join us every Sunday as we move in Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms®.  This drop-in class is a soft way to prepare for the week to come, a moving meditation for each of us, a building of tribe for the Atlanta 5Rhythms community.

The 5Rhythms is a simple, powerful moving meditation that anyone – of any age, size, or physical ability – can practice. There are no steps to follow, no choreography to learn, no way to do it wrong. The only requirement is a body that is still breathing, a heart that is still beating, and mind that is still curious!  Just like light, sound or ocean waves, a dancing body when moving freely passes through five distinct rhythmic patterns. These patterns continuously repeat themselves in a wave of motion.  The 5Rhythms are:

  • FLOWING – the fluid, continuous, grounded glide of our own movements
  • STACCATO – the percussive, pulsing beat that shapes us a thousand different ways
  • CHAOS – the rhythm of letting go, releasing into the catalytic wildness of our dance that can never be planned or repeated
  • LYRICAL – the rhythm of trance, where the weight of self-consciousness dissolves, where we lighten up and disappear into our own uniqueness
  • STILLNESS – the quiet emptiness, where gentle movements rise and fall, start and end, in a field of silence

Time: Every Sunday~  5-7 PM(new time)  ~ The Portfolio Center~  Bennet Street Atlanta, see link below for directions ~  the class is taught be either Tracey Upton or Smith Hanes  cost:  $15  but noone is turned away for lack of funds

‎”To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self.
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.” gabrielle roth

HOME ~ a 5rhythms® workshop with Kate Shela

Many of us live alone or in a nuclear family in our own little boxes disconnected from each other and dis-connected from ourselves. We have so much and yet so little. We come together in our version of community through workshop and retreat.

In the workshop HOME we will begin to explore our common dream for mutual support and begin to find our place within the whole. Our wish to become a part of the whole rather than apart from the whole. Not a place of suffocation but knowing one is held invisibly in the thread of life. A tribe of individuals.

I want you to see me but I don’t want you to squash me
I want you to know me but I want to have my secrets
I want you to hear me but allow me to be silent
I want you to give me space and I hope you will come in close and surprise me.

The intent for our time together is to create a sanctuary for group healing, to discover where our place is in the circle and what gifts we have to offer and receive. To come home to ourselves and into a state of homecoming.
