Waves workshops are the physical practice of 5 Rhythms, moving through the maps, where it all begins and ends

Transforming Shadows and Touching Mystery
November 16/17, 2019
Enjoying the embodiment and energy of Gabrielle Roth’s maps, we will explore the creative potential in each of the 5 Rhythms. Changing our point of view about what we reject in ourselves, we will embody and transform shadows.
We can discover the dance in everything: heavy bodies in reluctance, sharp, clear edges of rigidity, opening to all directions in confusion and distraction, retreating to safety until we are hard to reach.
The Ghost Dance was a Native American ceremonial dance that was banned, and reclaimed by the Lakota. The dance connected to ancestors and prayers for the regeneration of the Earth. Our intentions include opening to mystery and welcoming the unseen.
Lucca is a beautiful walled city in Tuscany, between Pisa and Florence. Alessia has been building community and offering 5Rhythms there as a spaceholder and a teacher, and I am delighted to continue our connection together through roles including mentor, teacher, friend and dancer. We hope you can join us for a weekend of transformation on the dance floor.
