A 5 rhythms workshop with Léon Beckx
Many dances of the past were dances of war. Dance prepared warriors for battle or celebrated victory. At times war dances replaced actual warfare to become ritualized, nonviolent displays of power. Some war dances shifted focus from outer to inner conflicts; teaching us how to embrace our fire, stand in our truth, and draw strength from all our relations.
The workshop Passage to Power draws on this tradition. We learn to embody and embrace the life force, and stop playing small or collaps in the face of challenges. Love is our greatest ally on this journey. We’ll discover how a state of expansiveness, deep connection and open awareness can give us more strength than fighting against someone or something.
The 5Rhythms have 5 phases or rhythms that take movers on a journey of tuning in (flowing), expressing (staccato), surrendering (chaos), expanding (lyrical) and being (stillness). The 5Rhythms will be the map on our journey to power. Each rhythm holds a different key to dealing with inner and outer conflict. In addition we’ll also use insights from martial arts and somatics to work with posture, breath and intention in creating our passage to power.
