How can our dance inspire art? How can art inspire our dance?
Using the 5Rhythms map, we will open our creative channel and step into the practice inviting artistry and guidance. We will explore artmaking through movement and embodiment. We will experiment with materials on the dance floor as well as in an art studio. We will use this process to inform us in creating both on the dance floor and in the art studio. We will end the weekend in ritual. The art studio will be open for 24 hrs, from the beginning of the workshop until its end.

5Rhythms with Stephanie Diamond
Everything that we experience in life is reflected in our bodies. Our emotions and thoughts are directly connected to our body parts and the history of these experiences shape and define our posture and form. We all have unconscious physical muscular patterns in our bodies, which are the representation of unresolved emotional experiences. By connecting to these patterns consciously through movement, and then learning to complete the natural emotional response, we can release those unconscious patterns in our bodies. Anatomy of Emotion is a 5-day 5Rhythms® Heartbeat + Waves investigation where we will explore these emotional landscapes with kindness, curiosity and compassion. In Heartbeat, we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away. We hope you will join us!
Anatomy of Emotion, 5-Day Heartbeat Led by Peter with Erik Iversen
August 18–25 | 12:15–1:00 and 5:30–6:15

I do not remember much of my first 5Rhythms class, a High Vibration Waves in NYC, except walking out I was thinking I don't know what just happened, but I need to go back and find out." - Henya Emmer More information about Henya:

Portals to Ecstasy: The Zone.... we've all had a taste of that blissful place while doing sports, being in nature, meditating... time seems to stop and we are ecstatically present and in No Mind.

Life is a series of transitions, where we leave one moment behind as we move on to the next. These transitions can be as simple as the shift from inside to outside or from stillness to movement and back again. They can be as natural as the changing of the seasons or the life cycle. They can also be dramatic and life changing. As conditions change, our perceptions change, too. Whether major or minor, transitions call upon our most creative responses. Come and join us as we use the map of the 5 Rhythms to explore these portals and dance on our creative edges.
Transitions, 5Rhythms Waves Workshop Led by Peter

This 5Rhythms class explores energy via the Elements connected to each rhythm: Earth, Air, Fire, Water & Ether.
