The Workshop

Change - how do we move with it?  how does it move us?  The new year is a time for acknowledging change.  As a collective, we reflect on our past and dream of our future.  On a deeper and more intimate level, change is a mourning of what we have lost, a celebration of what we have gained. 

Always, change is a reminder of the impermanence of life — a death and birth from moment to moment with no guarantees.  To move with the changes in life gracefully we must surrender to the impermanence of the moment — loving what is even as we mourn its inevitable loss. To make art of our lives we must from time to time return to the sanctuary - the place where we can safely surrender the masks we wear and remember who we really are.  

In this 5Rhythms workshop we will build a sanctuary for embracing the changes in our lives  — a place where we can safely surrender that which no longer serves, rediscover the divine light that radiates from within, and practice the pure expression of divinity in this earth body of flesh and blood.  Using the map of the 5Rhythms, we will practice fully listening to and honoring our embodiment. 

The New Year’s tradition is our collective reflection on the year behind and the year ahead. Workshop hours count toward teacher certification on the 5Rhythms teacher training path.

There are numerous hotels and B&B's in the DC area, but we also offer dancers the opportunity to stay with members of the DC Tribe. For home stays, each guest pays $15 per night.  This fee goes to Ann, which in turn comes off your host's tuition for this workshop.  The energy exchange is taken care of, so no need to bring a gift or take them out for dinner!
