Move until you are moved. Dance until the dancer disappears and only the dance remains. – Gabrielle Roth
“The gateway of the body is a powerful vessel that allows us to move and be moved,” says Lucia Horan. “Trance happens when we get out of the way enough for embodied presence to occur. When one simply gets out of the head and into the body, healing and transformation is possible. The 5Rhythms teaches us skills and tools to use in everyday life that help us facilitate this union. If we have the courage to move the body, the heart and mind can follow.
“In this workshop we will use both the stillness practice of Buddhist mindfulness and the moving meditations of the 5Rhythms. The Buddha encouraged us to bring wise attention to every aspect of our lives, and in sitting meditation, we have the opportunity to observe the mind and body at rest through silent introspection. In the practice of the 5Rhythms, we engage in mindfulness while in motion. The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together mirror the dance of life and open the door to peace, well-being, and balance.”
