Map of the 5Rhythms
The 5Rhythms provide us with a Map to move through the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of our being. Each time we dance a Wave, we traverse these territories. 5Rhythms teachers are intensively trained to facilitate workshops that focus specifically on these levels. The levels are described briefly below.
This energetic Wave formed by the 5Rhythms hooks us into our ever-changing state of being and the nature of life in which everything arises and passes away. When we dance wave after wave, we develop the ability to connect with our experiences, express them and release them so we can open to new possibilities, new ways of being in the world.
FLOWING STACCATO CHAOS LYRICAL STILLNESS
In the Cycles map we take an up close and personal look at our own lives, from birthto death and everything and everyone between. We make connections, reweave threads, let go of the hurt and humiliations. We honour the people and events that have shaped who we are and the challenges and gifts they left us with and reinvent our inherited self into somebody we truly want to be.
BIRTH CHILDHOOD PUBERTY MATURITY DEATH
The Mirrors Map Suite (Tribal Mirrors, Mirrors, and The Naked Soul) leads us to recognise what Gabrielle Roth referred to as “Ego Characters”and how we all have a cast of these endlessly rehashed roles. We can learn to spot them, name them, embody them, exaggerate them and practice dis-identifying from them so we might, even when under pressure, move more closely to authenticity, to Soul, to each other, to life and freedom.
