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.

ofschoolcalogo

Open Floor Community Dance – Sundays

Session starts at 9:30, there is no entry after 10:00

Our world-famous weekend sessions in San Rafael and Sausalito have been cooking for almost 20 years. For hundreds of people it’s become their movement church, their morning prayer, their guaranteed weekly dose of profound fun and deep connection.

Newcomers are always welcome. These Open Floor Community Dances have minimal instruction (attending Moving Meditation is a helpful orientation to our practice) — but there are no steps to learn and no way to do it wrong. All you need is a body, breath, and the willingness to move and be moved.

To ensure a spot on the dance floor, we recommend arriving 15 minutes early.

$20 at the door; $5 for students under 18; Book of 5 tickets for $90
