The 5Rhythms - moving meditation - is my primary embodiment practice. Here, I'll work to show you some of what it's about.
Lucia Horan was my first 5Rhythms teacher, at Esalen where I took her week-long Connections retreat in the summer of 2016.
The retreat changed my life, and I continued my studies with Lucia over the following years - both in 5Rhythms moving meditation and the Dharma. I find that sitting meditation combined with movement is extremely powerful.
In this video, Lucia explains some of concepts of the Dance.
Sayrah Garrison taught in Oakland for many years. In this video of the dance, you'll see me in a gray shirt dancing in and out of the practice.
The 5Rhythms has many maps - the map of the body with Flowing, Staccato, Chaos (my home rhythm), Lyrical and Stillness.
In this video, Silvija Tomcik dances a Heartbeat wave, moving through the emotions: Fear, Anger, Sadness, Joy and Compassion.
