5Rhythms® in Cumbria - evenings and workshops through the year

Ground & Sky, with Mark Austin

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.
