Still Moving, with Mark Austin

“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.
