                                 bECOME THE dANCE                                

This weekend we will dance with the energies of nature and live music, at the moment when the sun shines at its zenith, when the creative drive of spring relaxes and we can appreciate simply being.

Being in the body, receiving it delicately, welcoming its change of energy, relaxing in sensitive movement, enjoying the warmth of the sun on the skin.

We will inhabit the space between the lyrical and the quiet, accompanied by moments of live music and fusion with the elements. We will let go of control over our own dance patterns to become the dance itself. We will celebrate the Solstice with a stone circle ritual in an ancient and powerful place.

 Alessia introduces the workshop - video presentation

 


 Our main dance venue is the hospitable Thirlmere Hall in the dramatic St. John's Valley. On Saturday afternoon we plan to spread our wings and dance in Castlerigg Stone Circle. Probably built around 3000 BC, the beginning of the later Neolithic Period, Castlerigg Stone Circle is one of the earliest stone circles in Britain. It is important in terms of megalithic astronomy and geometry, as the construction contains significant astronomical alignments.  
Although its origins are unknown it is believed that it was used for ceremonial or religious purposes. It is probably the most dramatic of the known Neolithic stone circles in Britain.

 You can stay overnight at the hall, or camp in it's grounds, and there are plenty other possibilities nearby for staying (see suggestions below.) If you want to stay in the hall on Friday night (if you are dancing the Friday Wave and continuing for the weekend) and on Saturday night, tick the options on the registration forms for the Wave and the Workshop.

The Space Between….

Maybe you like it best when you can dance alone?
Maybe your best dances come in partnership?
Maybe you love the energy of what Gabrielle called “tribal”?
And then there’s that dance when it feels as though you’re dancing - with? - in? something deeper and wider than any of those.

On April 19th I’ll be inviting you to explore connection in some of its many forms -
connection, and the space between…..

As with all journeys of exploration, we don’t know what we’ll find. That can be scary, or exciting … or, of course, neither … or both …
Perhaps even something altogether different?

Angela

The Holy Actor
A 5 Rhythms retreat  over five days, in Patterdale

A notice from Andrew Holmes

“I have noticed a remarkable shift in me since the workshop: I am able to love myself, to give my attention unconditionally to others, and to lose myself easily. Such profound transformation”

“Letting the dance, each unfolding moment, all of everything flow through me: I’m so grateful to taste this true experience of being fully alive” 

“Wonderful, healing, joyful and loving!
The Holy Actor is the most extraordinary workshop I’ve ever been to”

"Take some time for yourself: relax, breathe deep, and make space for your soul to soar. 

On this retreat we will create a supportive community for rich, healing work. Together we’ll dance the 5 Rhythms, explore the landscape of our hearts,  and improvise wordless theatre, offering ourselves to the universal stories that are waiting to be told. We'll open to connect more deeply to our creative, heartful self: not so much a solid, definite personality.. more a fluid range of possibility, full of life.

The Holy Actor is a joyful, challenging, and healing journey in search of inspired transformation. It’s a practice in possibility ~ being truly alive in each moment, willing to show up and respond, with courage and with curiosity, without needing to know how it will all turn out, trusting your instinct to take the next step.

It’s a practice in being human ~ in being alive, in meeting deeply. It’s a celebration of creativity, and the willingness to feel, and serve, and connect. It’s a practical course in freedom, and the infinite possibility of your soul. It’s serious fun, and sacred play, and about as good as it gets.

Will you join us?"

“The fastest way to still the mind is to move the body” – Gabrielle Roth

JStill Moving. Zita McGarry, Kildareoin us for an opportunity to explore Stillness, the most mysterious of all of the Rhythms. We’ll explore through the Waves map, how all of the other rhythms prepare the ground for moving with Stillness. We’ll also discover 5Rhythms techniques that are designed to bring more embodied presence, unity and gratitude into our lives.

This will be the first ever offering of “Still Moving”, the third of a triptych of workshops that have been offered internationally in four countries. This workshop and the other two, “Ground and Sky” and “Ocean of Possibilities” can be completed in any order, each standing alone as a complete workshop in its own right.


For those who want to remain after the workshop until Sunday, you’re very welcome to join Mark for an easy to moderate hike (about a 4 hour round trip) from the banks of Lake Thirlmere to a neolithic / early Bronze Age stone circle (constructed circa 3200BC.)

Diane Gainey

Both the hike and the stones will be an opportunity to further integrate the mystery of Stillness. The stones are thought to be amongst the oldest stone circles in Europe and their true purpose remains a mystery. Given their historical significance, surprisingly little is known about them and they have never been scientifically dated.

Class and workshop hours from the weekend count towards 5Rhythms Teacher Training Waves prerequisites.

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.

All that is you webheader

What is your reaction to some of the most common questions like:
Are you more of an introvert or extrovert person? Do you feel more feminine or masculine? Do you think you are a deep or superficial person? fun or boring? Are you hard worker or lazy kind of guy?

My inner voice always says: I don’t know, I am all and nothing. Those questions used to make me feel uncomfortable even though most of the time it was just me questioning myself!

But ... courageously exploring these voices and feelings help us to develop, choose and belong - anywhere, anytime.  We are naturally curious, not stuck in tribes. We do belong to “all that is us”, which today may be introvert and tomorrow extrovert; having to choose in order to feel a belonging to a particular tribe is an illusion - the only tribe we’ll always belong to to is the tribe that includes “all of you.”

Imagine that a new Tribe is emerging and that you belong to that one. The Tribe of those who can proudly answer: "I don’t know, I am all of this, all the time."

HERE is an invitation to bring your messy self to the dance floor and celebrate it!

Who am I...today? Today I am a passionate heart, a woman and a seeker. I am fire and water, wind and earth. I am chaos and flowing, I am a lyrical, travelling soul. Forever searching, through the movement of my body, the balance between my strength and my vulnerability. On the dancefloor I seek, explore, express and create my own true version of love, family, relationship, success and any idea has been taught us but doesn't fit us any longer. Dancing is the most fascinating and poetic way to connect to that truth ...

My 'home territory' is Tuscany, italy, where I teach in cities, by the sea, on evenings, workshops and retreats - I am excited to have this new opportunity to dance with you all in the UK.

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.

ground skyDo you find yourself daydreaming about a brighter future without quite ever getting there?
Do you find yourself stuck in the daily routine tasks without ever questioning why you're doing them?
In this workshop we will embody our connection to the universal forces of ground and sky. We will make space to find clarity around our life dreams and work with tools that will help us to manifest them into our daily reality. We will be exploring this territory using the 5Rhythms Waves map and bring awareness to some of the shadows that might prevent us from actualizing our dreams.

Previous experience of 5Rhythms is not required. Please bring water, clothes suitable for moving and dancing and an open mind.
 
 During this 5Rhythms workshop, Mark will show you tools through the 5Rhythms that will help you to balance making space for dreams and big ideas with ways to manifest them. Ground and Sky is the first of a triptych of workshops. It will be the first time Mark has offered Ground and Sky back home in England, having previously brought it to the Netherlands, Slovakia and Serbia.

 Jon Spencer ScalesTrnSharpEdgeVOn Sunday, the next day, Mark will be exploring up the nearby fells with a free group, walking with the sensibilities of the previous days' dancing. You are free to join in or not: "the walk will be an opportunity to put into practice for the first time some of the embodied learnings from Saturday. We will certainly feel the Cumbrian Ground under our feet, and hopefully vistas of Sky will emerge to frame the mountain if the Lake District gods are generous with us! There will be options for a moderate walk to Scales Tarn, and for those with a head for heights there will be an option to go further and traverse Sharp Edge if weather permits. We’ll be finished by mid-afternoon for those who want to travel on before the end of the weekend."
 
Accommodation: you are welcome to find your own, but also we have reserved the use of the hall for overnight staying - If you would like to do this  (which will cost £10 per person per night) please add this option when you register.  ....
"So much time we spend thinking as adults in the modern world! Let’s get back to the body, feel the music and reconnect with ourselves and each other!"
 
Mark has been teaching weekly classes in the North West of England since 2017. In addition to being a 5RTA registered Waves level teacher, he is a qualified yoga teacher trained at Shri Kali Ashram in India. Outside of embodied practices, Mark manages a large team of IT consultants and runs trail marathons in his spare time, as well as being Dad in his busy family life. Embodied practices, and particularly 5Rhythms practice have supported Mark in manifesting many of his dreams into reality.

Partners 51 smRelationship ~ it connects us, to others and to life.
At an early age we realise that there’s more than just us here.
And then throughout our lives, with family and with friends, with lovers and with colleagues, we meet, relate, and part, again and again.
Sometimes it’s delightful, sometimes it’s difficult.
Sometimes it’s perfunctory, sometimes it’s profound.
Always there’s an opportunity for creativity and for us both to be enriched. If we can find it.

This is a weekend to explore, through the 5 Rhythms, the dances of relationship ~
Our familiar patterns, and other possibilities.
All the different ways of connecting with another
With body and heart
Me and you.

Andrew Holmes new webAndrew has been teaching the 5 Rhythms for more than twenty years. He studied extensively with Gabrielle Roth, and runs workshops in many countries. He lives in Stroud with his partner Sharon.

marble chaos2

 

I love this as a metaphor for dancing Chaos - where the earthy, circling dance of Flowing meets the fiery energy of Staccato, often within the “melting pot” of a Chaos Circle….
where things can get shaken out and shaken off, yes, but also softened, mixed, and melted….allowing the possibility - just the possibility - of something new emerging.

I am so looking forward to dancing with you all again!

Love, Angela

 

I'm a certified teacher of 5 Rhythms®, having completed the training with Gabrielle Roth in 2011, after a lifetime spent mainly teaching in mainstream education, but also with periods of working in social care and creative coaching.

I found the Rhythms in 1999 - 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.

My loves are my son and his family, my friends; poetry, ancient places, my birthplace in Central America; the beauty of the natural world, silence, solitude, and the things of the spirit.
But 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. I feel most fully myself, yet expanded beyond myself. When I dance the Rhythms, I begin, once again, to become more of who I am.

Easter Saturday 22

We are one

A playful exploration of levels of relationship dancing the 5 Rhythms to live music.

How can I meet you without losing myself? How can I let myself shine while allowing space for others? Why do I ache for connection when I am alone and for solitude when in company? What are the gifts and challenges of being in relationship with myself, another and the group?

For an evening and a day we will explore these questions and more as we investigate the ways we connect on a path to rediscovering unity.

PEARS This Dancing Body CumbriaThis 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.

We are very pleased to invite Roger Bygott,  a teacher new to our area - his home area is Manchester.

Roger BygottI meditated, sitting on a cushion, for many years, and still do. But it was 5 Rhythms that convinced me that I needed to get into my body for real integration and sustainable transformation to happen. I continue to dance because I continue to discover new levels of understanding and new ways of moving the process of my life. I dance for the sake of endless creativity, play, freedom and connection with others. I trust deeply in the process of dancing the rhythms. I rarely know where that process is taking me, but it's always somewhere interesting!

With live music the dance grows from the connection between the movers and the musicians weaving between leading and following, listening and guiding to create a unique and magical experience.

Cath and Keith have been musical collaborators for many years, having worked with Rachel on the Earth, Sea, Sky residential in Northumberland. This will be the first time they have played together since 2014.

4CIt's almost midsummer - the point of the year when staccato overflows naturally into chaos - and we are surrounded by a tangled profusion of growth. The challenge here is individuation - to remain true to ourselves  when all around distractions tempt and pull us in many directions.

In this class we will be dancing into the heart of chaos, exploring ways of remaining centred and fluid amidst the confusion - sure of our path and yet open to opportunity.

Andrew HolmesWe long to surrender to something ~
something good, something sweet, something sacred.
Perhaps that’s why we love the dance so much: it takes us there.

This is a weekend to let go of doing our dance, and allow something more to move through us ~ the music, the moment, Spirit itself.

When we do that, we are connected, and released, and truly inspired. 
Taken by the dance.

Andrew has been teaching the 5 Rhythms for more than twenty years. He studied extensively with Gabrielle Roth, and runs workshops in many countries. He lives in Stroud with his partner Sharon. [ see Teachers who dance with us.]

Simplicity

Life can get very complicated: difficult, messy, challenging. Sometimes it’s ourselves, sometimes it’s just circumstances, often it’s a real mix of both. But in the Rhythms we have a very simple practice that can hold us and even help us surf the situations we find ourselves in.

As we move into Spring, we’ll take a day to dance the simplicity of the Rhythms, and explore how they may help us find a greater sense of clarity in our lives.

 

Pre-requisites:
This workshop is open to anyone who has done at least one taught class with any certified or accredited 5 Rhythms® teacher.

Angela Lord is a certified teacher of Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms® She has been dancing the Rhythms
since 1999 and teaching since 2011:

The dance changed my life. It continues to delight my heart and soul, even as it continues to challenge me to change and grow.

Beginning the new year with Rachel our resident teacher ...
Rachel will re-introduce the core precepts of the Rhythms, as the framing of the evening. Do you have curious / interested friends who’d like to start dancing 5R in the New Year? We will particularly welcome new dancers.
On our '5Rhythms of the Wave' page, we have videos and other information outlining the 5 Rhythms, including from Gabrielle Roth, 5 Rhythms founder, and Rachel.

Our invited teachers bring dedicated encouragement, wisdom, support and energy to the dance and to you - which is exactly the point. A key feature of a 5 Rhythms session is what a teacher brings - their guidance, energy and watchfulness so that all dancers can dive as deeply as they can into the dance and its possibilities. “[5R] teachings are fundamentally rooted in movement: to embody them is to be willing to move and be moved in the moment, in a grace spun by something bigger. A teacher is somebody committed to being real and accountable and to providing the space, permission and guidance for you to do the same.” (5Ryhythms Movement Organisation.) They are guides and facilitators in our shared and individual dancing journeys.

clear space JR“When Emptiness is still, that is eternity. When it moves, that is love” Adyashanti


In the midst of the winter festivities, come and take some time just for you, to seek out the clear space.

 

 

The mystics (and the scientists!) tell us that at our core, we are made of space and emptiness.
Let’s shift our focus from the things, events, people, relationships, challenges, ideas, thoughts, feelings in our lives, to the space within and around all of this and enjoy the freedom this offers.
We’ll embrace and accept what is moving within us, and as we let emptiness be our guide, where will that take us?

A high energy, cleansing evening wave followed by a day to listen, express, release and create from the quiet inner space of winter stillness.

Bring your own light lunch.

Gabrielle Roth created the 5Rhythms moving maps to help us all find our full, natural expression, heal our wounds and become engaged, intuitive humans who are part of the solution here on planet earth.
Jean was trained by her in 2007/8 and has been teaching ever since, continuously learning and growing in her understanding of the maps, which she communicates clearly, with warmth and humour.

solstice2018 MA

 ... Here we are, coasting at the bottom of our annual dive into the dark ... made it!

We complete our solar year and start the new one with dance.
"Between 7pm – 9pm there will be our regular 5Rhythms waves class. For those who wish to remain after, from 9.15pm-10:45pm there will be ceremonial move through the Winter Solstice with dance and stillness. The moment of solstice this year will be at 22:23pm, and we have an opportunity to respectfully acknowledge the completion of nature’s cycle and welcome in the first beginnings of her new year with our movement and stillness."

Angela LordSeptember, and the rich fruits of autumn. What feels rich and full for you right now? What, in the rush and stress of life, is it possible to be grateful for? The privilege and sheer pleasure of being free to dance is a good place to start! Let’s go deep together - simmering, sweaty, explosive, surrendered, simply still and simply moving - let’s celebrate: ourselves, each other, and the gifts of the season, all in the dance.
With love - Angela

Alessia Lencioni"What if you risk a little more? What if you push a little less? what if it's all just about discovering...."

A first visit from Italian  Teacher Alessia, with the possibility for dancers to stay overnight very cheaply in the hall and make a weekend in the Lakes of it!

We hope Alessia will be back, so don't miss out on this one!

"I am a passionate heart, a woman and a seeker. I am fire and water, wind and earth. I am chaos and flowing, I am a lyrical, travelling soul. Forever searching, through the movement of my body, the balance between my strength and my vulnerability. On the dancefloor I seek, explore, express and create my own true version of love, family, relationship, success and any idea has been taught us but doesn't fit us any longer. Dancing is the most fascinating and poetic way to connect to that truth, to wave and struggle for that, to encourage that and celebrate it."

A 5 Rhythms workshop focussing on grounding the rhythm of Chaos. (Read more about the patterns and characteristics of the Rhythms here.) At the end of the day there'll be a fire by the lake.

The Friday evening session will prepare us for dancing deeper on the Saturday, you are also welcome to attend just the Friday or just the Saturday. You can sleep in the hall for free on the Friday night. (Kitchen & showers available but you need to bring a sleeping bag and camping mat).
Bring food (to share if you wish) for lunch.

'Grounding Our Glow'. By 'grounding', I am referring to the process of receiving, sensing and embodying our bright shining nature. For many, Summer is a time of high energy. Rather than letting it lead us into overwhelm and subsequent space-out, how do we ground this energy so that it can be enjoyed, lived & shared? We will dance deep, shedding layers and tensions that may be in the way of our receptivity to this divine glow. In the evening, following the workshop, we will gather together by the lake, in the presence of fire & in the spirit of abundance! I hope you can join us for this magical day.

~ moving through changes

Nothing stays the same forever
Sooner or later things shift, evolve, or simply come to an end

And so do we

You’d think we’d be better at adapting!
But the truth is we get rather attached to the way things are
And change often seems to come as a surprise

This is a weekend to explore, through the 5 Rhythms, the natural processes of change, and how to be at home as we move with them

We’ll look at the ways each rhythm gives rise to the next
And find in the effortless cycle of their Wave our own way of dancing through life’s transitions.

Spring is here and as the light grows stronger the shadows can become more visible. In this workshop we will reveal and explore the shadow of the psyche by articulating it through movement. By embodying this territory we can begin to see where we remain stuck and learn to bring movement and life to stagnant energy. Having familiarised ourselves with the terrain, we will offer up the aspects of the self that no longer serve us, to the fire of purification and set intentions and directions for new growth.

We will dance in the beautiful Bassenthwaite Hall and end with a fire by the lake. It is recommended that this workshop is taken in conjunction with the previous evening's wave: however if this is not possible and you have already delved deeply into 5 Rhythms movement practice, you may be able to join us for the Saturday only. Please discuss this with us in advance.

Bring: food to share; comfortable clothes for dancing; warm, outer wear for the closing ceremony; your whole self; willingness to move and be moved.

If you are travelling from afar to attend both the Friday and Saturday sessions, you can stay in the hall on the Friday night. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for the arrangements.

We’re in the season that the poet e e cummings called
“In Just-spring……
when the world is puddle-wonderful.”

We’ll be dancing in the Stillness of a world still partly winter-quiet and interior, with the first stirrings of growth and beginnings that we call Flowing, the Staccato of the first shoots pushing through to the light, the Chaos of sleet…snow…sunshine…wild winds… smirring rain; and the Lyrical of snowdrops, primroses, even early daffodils. We’ll be dancing in the Stillness of Still-winter, in Just-spring.
