Event Details & Registration

Feb23

Dancing was my drug and eventually it led me to 5 Rhythms. In the comparative safety of this new context, my spirituality exploded. Every time I danced, something deep and profound would happen. Whether or not I could make logical sense of these experiences, there was always something to learn. Suddenly everything seemed possible.

..Connect your head, heart and body, in joyous company. Newcomers especially welcome ...

 

 (If the evening has become fully registered, do sign up to the Waiting List. Sometimes a registrant will inform us in advance that they can't attend, and we are able to re-allocate the space. Additionally, if we see there is a strong demand it will guide our future venue considerations.)

Apr23

I'm a certified teacher of 5 Rhythms® - love at first sight! I'd found a doorway into a different world, a space where I was not only allowed but positively encouraged to dance, and a dance form that was not just for the young, the fit, and the slender. It changed my life. The dance is both my passion and my practice. In it, I find my body set free, and my heart, mind and soul opened...to a greater authenticity, a deeper connection, with myself, with others, with Other.

physical, grounded and juicy This body ~ often taken for granted, sometimes ill or in pain, always
ageing..
We feed it, rest it, keep it warm
Wish it other than it is
And then attend to higher things..

But then again.. this body ~ home, a miracle of design
The creative instrument through which our dance takes form
A crucible of life and breath
A begging bowl for Spirit..

 

This is a weekend to more consciously inhabit our physical form
To breathe, and move, and feel
To celebrate the physical, and fill it luxuriantly with ourselves
To find acceptance and then revelation in our flesh and bones
And attend with honour to this body that loves to dance.

 

Andrew Holmes new webAndrew has been teaching the 5 Rhythms for  twenty-five years. He studied extensively with Gabrielle Roth, and runs workshops in many countries. He lives in Somerset with his partner Sharon.
“The depth and simplicity of your teaching is stunning”
