"The quickest way to still the mind is to move the body." ~ Gabrielle Roth The 5Rhythms is an in-bodied, out of your mind dance experience not to be missed. It is a simple, powerful moving meditation that anyone – of any age, size, or physical ability - can practice. There are no steps to follow, no choreography to learn, no way to do it wrong. The only requirement is a body that is still breathing, a heart that is still beating, and mind that is still curious! Just like light, sound or ocean waves, a dancing body when moving freely passes through five distinct rhythmic patterns. These patterns continuously repeat themselves in a wave of motion. The 5Rhythms are: FLOWING – the fluid, continuous, grounded glide of our own movements STACCATO – the percussive, pulsing beat that shapes us a thousand different ways CHAOS – the rhythm of letting go, releasing into the catalytic wildness of our dance that can never be planned or repeated LYRICAL – the rhythm of trance, where the weight of self-consciousness dissolves, where we lighten up and disappear into our own uniqueness STILLNESS – the quiet emptiness, where gentle movements rise and fall, start and end, in a field of silence Please join RhythmWave as we return to the Black Rock City for our sixth year with this gorgeous dance/meditation practice that we love to share with you!
