“A weekend of dancing the 5Rhythms…..surfing and diving into the territories of deep movement practice”
with Alain Allard – April 9 – 12, 2015
Suitable for beginners and experienced dancers alike, we will dance wave after wave exploring the creative physical core of this profound movement meditation, with the intention to free ourselves from inertia, stale habits and tired old patterns.
We will dive deeply into the work and see where this leads us in our study as we follow the flow that unfolds in the group that we become. This work is deceptively simple in its purest most basic form – and it is in the raw dance unfolding with patience and passion that the power lies. The dance is a process as life itself, of movement, sensations and breath. The experience of these are the teaching.
The 5rhythms is rich in maps for deep exploration and the baseline of the work is always attentive physical practice. Each rhythm has a different energetic movement quality to be experienced again and again. In this way can become fluidly and consciously embodied, open and receptive to our own precious vitality, sensitivity and spirit.
This study and tasting of the basics is the fundamental discipline …you can never do too much of it.
By focusing on physical movement we hear different aspects of our own voice, fall into their movement and release our innate creativity and sense of vast connection.
No previous experience is necessary, just a love of movement coupled with the willingness, the desire and the discipline to focus and encourage the release of our own and each others dance.
Alain has been dancing the 5Rhythms® for over 20 years, and for the last 15 has been regularly teaching them in different countries, continents and contexts. He is a fully licensed and registered UKCP therapist and a gifted humorous teacher accredited by Gabrielle Roth to teach the Waves, Heartbeat and Mirrors level maps of her work.
