Rhythm Revival (5 Rhythms)
Message from Visudha (11/1/19):
"I have been looking forward to Rhythm Revival in April. One of the incredibly beautiful lessons of this offering is to simultaneously listen to our own rhythms; while connecting to the greater circle of life. In this way, we come together as Tribe. In this connected state we innately know the importance of dissolving our sense of separateness into the one unified field where our very souls are held and nurtured, and we have the felt experience of our vastness.
And, in general, the 5Rhythms ask us to be with - surrender to - what is, listening deeply to our own bodies. A situation I currently find for myself. I am experiencing a health crisis that needs attended to here in the USA, and requires I must step away from active teaching for several months. I apologize for how this affects your plans.
While we will not be on the floor in this human design, I ask that we still connect to the energy of the tribal rhythm and let it lead you into your own vastness. Let's find each other in the beyond, together in spirit, with the beat, coming closer to body and spirit; and, through this knowing tribal consciousness.
I look forward to the next time I see you on the floor. Blessings to you and your loved ones, Keep Moving! "
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
Perhaps you have been experiencing depression, disconnection or feel disheartened because of the way the world moves today. So busy with electronic communications; tense with the political climate and social issues; and overwhelmed with the balance of career, family, love and personal responsibilities.
Perhaps you've been longing for something deep within but you don't know what it is, and yet, the mysterious sensation keeps calling you. Your Soul's been knocking or maybe more quietly tickling.
RhythmRevival is listening to, and responding to your own soul knocks, your own soultickles. It's slowing down, and feeling the pulse of the Mother, the beat of your own heart, and the music of your soul. It's finding yourself, and remembering your deepest essence. It's relaxing into the beat, surrendering bound and tight energies that keep you from your creative source. It's feeling and trusting your own vital life forcebeneath your skin.
It's meeting in the unity of one tribe: we awaken and revive the rhythm of natural life together. We join in the patterns and repetitions of 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. We will use the tools and techniques of the 5Rhythms, shamanic earth-based practices, embodiment practices, ritual and presence.
Come alive. Revive your rhythms.
