Dreams is proud to be one of the few locations throughout the country to host Visudha do los Santos' 2018 transformational 5 Rhythms Mystery in Motion weekend!
"Do you have the discipline to be a free spirit?" Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms is an enlightening practice of moving meditation of listening and moving our bodies to deepen our awareness and transform our lives. The Rhythms are a powerful and deceptively simple way to transform ourselves into the fullest embodiment and manifestation of who we are and access the infinite source of wisdom that exists within us all.
At its most basic level this is a physical practice of moving through a 'Wave', in which the journey moves through five distinct rhythms. Supported through music and Visudha's guidance, the 'Wave' begins to FLOW in a gentle circular, fluid motion. With an increasingly syncopated beat we come into STACCATO which eventually gives way to a strong and rapid beat inviting in the rhythm of CHAOS. Coming out of the crest of the wave, we tap into spontaneous creativity in LYRICAL, and finally, in STILLNESS, we come home. Each rhythm holds the gift of catalyzing specific states of being within us.
Roots of the 5Rhythms practice:
In some ancient cultures it was customary for travelers to leave home carrying a small plant. The message was: "Don't ever forget where you came from. Always stay rooted."
Building on this eternal truth and drawing upon Shamanic and Sufi sacred traditions the 5Rhythms offer us a way to find freedom through rootedness that transforms our lives and strengthens our connection within us. What are your roots? How can we reconnect with our roots and bring ourselves back home again?
Being based in the infinite wisdom of our bodies, there are no steps to learn. We remember our natural rhythms through the practice of inviting movement into our physical bodies. These classes and workshops are open to anyone who desires to move and transform their lives and absolutely NO prior dance experience is necessary.
