Mirrors Charlottesville VA Front

Mirrors is an initiation beyond the world of self-importance — into the art of seeing.  To enter the world of Mirrors is to take off our blinders and begin to see through the delusions and difficulties that trap us in unhappiness and destructiveness.  We start to step back and get some insight into the predictable patterns that sabotage the grace and dignity of our truest and most soulful self.

In the 5Rhythms practice, we are constantly moving into the most spontaneous, energetic, expansive qualities of our being.  In the Mirrors level of the practice, we are given the tools to identify the relentless loop of our own favorite head-trips and the inevitable situation they create.  We tear off masks, shed skins, reinventing ourselves effortlessly, learning to witness our own drama, its roots and rituals.  We enter the crowd of characters that dominate our stage whether servant or star, doormat or dreamer, realist or rebel, systic or manipulatore — all divas, and begin to watch them sabotage our funky, fiery, free-spirit.  Sometimes we have to stop the world and wonder: which part of me is using my hands, my feet, my eyes, my ears, and most importantly my mouth today?

We all know what it feels like to get stuck, to lose our groove, to get trapped in our heads and cut off from our hearts seeking the answer within awakens the witness and learning to witness our own melodrama is our saving grace.

Dance, Ritual, Food, and Fire –
a 5Rhythms Retreat with Ann Kite

July 22 – 24, 2016

Welcoming everything that comes – it is the secret to Flyer_front_smallbeing fully alive.  Everything from the beginning of intimacy, with self and other, to the little and big deaths, in the loss of intimacy.  Portals are the moments when we can avoid what life offers, or we can take life’s hand and move with grace.  Through the map of the 5Rhythms we will explore these portals, each rhythm helping us excavate a greater understanding of ourselves.  Our ways of connecting and disconnecting will emerge into gentle awareness.  As we risk deepening into ourselves and sharing ourselves with one another, we will take nourishing moments in this walk back home.
