The Radiant Heart: 5Rhythms Heartbeat with Davida Taurek @ Presidio Performing Arts Center
Sep 16 – Sep 17 all-day

Radiant HEart

Heartbeat is an active, embodied investigation of our emotional map. Using the physical map of the 5Rhythms, we will explore the territory of our emotions, discovering how our fear, anger, sadness, joy, and compassion move. Befriending and somatically moving emotions set us free to be present and available for life’s mysterious unfolding to happen.

The 5Rhythms dance gives us a fun, creative, and physical way to practice expressing ourselves so that we may live authentically and spontaneously in the moment.
Join us for an embodied heart exploration!

PREREQUISITES: 5Rhythms Waves (minimum 5 hours)
This workshop counts for 5Rhythms Teacher Training prerequisites

“Between the head and the feet of any given person lies a billion miles of unexplored wilderness”
~ Gabrielle Roth

Sweat Your Prayers is minimally guided deep dive, a musical journey into the wisdom of your unique body, tender heart and intuitive mind. Free form dance traverses the territory of our searching soul, our wild and untamed spirit. And, in the same moments, connects us with other spirits, indeed, unites us with all life. 5Rhythms is a moving meditation, profound medicine and a map into this “unexplored wilderness”. Each rhythm – flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, stillness – is a gateway map to deep healing.

Maps are only maps; it’s up to you to take the journey”
~ Gabrielle Roth

Medicine in Motion: 5Rhythms Movement Meditation @ Esalen Institute
Oct 22 – Nov 19 all-day

5rhythms_vertlogo_whitebg

Put the psyche into motion and it will heal itself. – Gabrielle Roth

Movement is medicine for the soul. The 5Rhythms® include flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness. These rhythms lay the foundation of a simple yet profound movement practice in which we become aware of the patterns, rhythms, and cycles of energy that live within and around us. The 5Rhythms is a powerful catalyst that dances us awake, while uncovering the wild, graceful, unique, tender, and exquisite beings we truly are. This mindfulness practice shines light into the shadows, unearths our stories, and unravels the bonds that keep us stuck in old patterns and predictable behaviors. It ignites our potential for living an authentic, spontaneous, and freer life.

During our time together we will begin with the Waves level teachings of the 5Rhythms. Building on that foundation, with gentle humor and a safe container, we will dive into our shadows and give expression to the dark sides of our lives. Our work together will culminate in a daylong Heartbeat level of this work where we explore and befriend the territory of our emotions.

This will be an intimate journey into self, other, and the collective. We will dedicate time to reflect and integrate our experiences through counsel, ritual, and experiential exercises specifically orchestrated to cultivate genuine kindness, compassion, empathy, respect, and acceptance of self and others. No previous experience required.

All workshop hours contribute to Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® teachers training prerequisites.

The Rhythms and Stories of Our Lives:  5Rhythms® and Motion Theater®   With Lucia Horan and Davida Taurek               A weekend playshop at the magical Esalen Institute!

      “Movement is medicine”. Gabrielle Roth

Experience the freedom and transformative power of self-expression through the catalytic practices of the 5Rhythms and Motion Theater. Motion Theater, a form of improvised autobiographical storytelling grounded in a lively physicality, simultaneously functions as performance art, healing method and spiritual practice. The 5Rhythms is a dynamic moving meditation practice that invites us to embody our psyche and awaken our soul.

Together we will dance, vocalize, share our stories, and play simple theater games that ignite the creative collective spirit. The skills and tools you will learn will inform your daily life, bringing acceptance, grace and play wherever you need it.

This workshop will provide techniques to translate your inner life stories into art, while offering the opportunity to express ourselves freely in a safe and supportive environment.  Expect to surprise yourself and perhaps even leave with a greater sense of vitality, ease and joy.

5Rhythms®: Heartbeat, Joy and Generosity @ Esalen Institute
Nov 19 – Nov 24 all-day

5Rhythms®: Heartbeat, Joy and Generosity

      “Love is not a mood, but a dynamic way of being.”

– Gabrielle Roth

Joy and generosity are profoundly linked. In order for an authentic joy to be experienced, one must look closely at the relationship to generosity or the lack of its presence. All you have to do is be willing to move. As you do so, it becomes possible to open the barriers, heal the past, and find joy in the present.

The Heartbeat map is a guide to how our emotional energy moves and morphs. This map teaches us how to navigate the emotional terrain of life without getting stuck, holding on, or pushing away. We will explore how the body has been shaped by emotions, learning how to express emotion in a healthy and creative way.

This workshop integrates the stillness of Buddhist mindfulness meditation with the moving meditations of the 5Rhythms®. The Buddha encouraged us to bring wise attention to every aspect of our lives. 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 polarities of moving and sitting meditation mirror the dance of life and open the door to peace, well-being, and balance.

All workshop hours contribute to 5Rhythms® teacher training prerequisites.

There will be a celebratory Thanksgiving dinner in the Esalen Lodge.
