Portals is an opportunity to stand on your own two feet, look at your life, and create the change that you want to see. You will be witnessed. You will be heard. You will be held. This is your opportunity to move though the gateway of your own becoming and awaken to the authentic living expression of your soul’s purpose.

New to 5Rhythms?
5Rhythms is a seamless blend of dance, meditation, self-discovery, and community.
This workshop will utilize the life-changing movement-meditation practice of 5Rhythms to find that “pivotal moment” of personal transformation. No dance experience is necessary -- no steps to learn -- only your willingness to listen to the wisdom of your own body, and let your own movement emerge. We will learn to quiet the self-chatter in our minds that holds us down. We will allow our bodies to explore authentic movement from our soul. Our unlocked movement will open the heart to pathways to self-transformation.
The work is simple, but opening the heart is not easy. That is why we will practice with the help of a 5Rhythms Certified Teacher, the encouragement of a supportive group, and the safety of a retreat center devoted to healing and awakening.
Come dance and transform with us. Restore yourself in the pastoral setting of Sevenoaks Retreat Center. Nourish yourself with the delicious and healthy food made with love on the premises. Make new friends.
Ann Kite fell into free form dance at a 5Rhythms workshop in Asheville, North Carolina in November, 2008. She awoke to the dance in her body and a yearning for movement expression.
Ann started dancing alone in her home and found her own body wanting dance community. In August 2009 she started Conscious Dance C’ville, meeting once per week. Since then she’s added 2 other classes. Ann has been trained and is a 5Rhythms Teacher, and has studied in the SoulMotion Leadership Program. She is passionate about life, about love of self and other, and about honoring the gifts that come through each one of us. She works to welcome these gifts to flow through freely ~ the dance floor being a place of refuge, transformation, and release.
