"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: "When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?" - Gabrielle Roth
The pulse of the Mother, the beat of your own heart, and the music of your soul meet in the unity of one tribe: we awaken and revive the rhythm of life together. Joining in patterns and repetitions—one dance, one motion, one wave of energy—we come home to ourselves, each other, and the essence of pure love. The 5Rhythms® are a dynamic movement meditation practice that uses dance as a metaphor for life. The process explores any limiting conditions you might embody. It then allows you to become aware of and change your beliefs, and consequently your embodiment, simply by riding and moving with waves of energy. Come alive. Revive your rhythms.
This special Sweat Your Prayers is a Collaboration with Accredited 5Rhythms Teacher Visudha de los Santos and live Musician Vic Hennegan.
