Dancing Deeper - Finding Soul 5Rhythms® Movement Meditation with Mati Vargas-Gibson
A Mid-Winter Retreat for rekindling your creative fire & nourishing your intuition
JANE’S HOUSE OF WELL-BEING St. Charles, MO 63301
JANUARY 31 to FEBRUARY 2, 2014
Though the soul is not a thing, it is our beingness, that which gives us being. Its presence manifests in being awake, attentive, energetic, alive. It is the spark of life. - Gabrielle Roth. Maps to Ecstasy
“It is amazing that our souls — our eternal essences, with all their hopes and dreams and visions of an eternal world — are contained within these temporal bodies.” - Marion Woodman
Take time for yourself and join us as we dance to connect with the soulful seeds of creativity we carry deep within. Are you following your soul’s promptings and nurturing your creative fires? Are you seeking inspiration, renewed commitment and vibrancy? Do you need care, healing and purification so that your radiant self emerges into the light?
With these questions we will enter into the dancing path of the 5Rhythms® - Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness - to put our psyche in motion, opening the wisdom of the body to our deepest self and our soul’s life-giving spark.
We will dive into our fluid nature, focus our attention on what longs to be expressed through the heart, find freedom as we release body and mind, expand into our individual, funky style, and dance until we empty into the fullness of being. As we let go and surrender into freedom of movement, our dance will enliven our lives and reignite the wisdom of our truest voice and inspiration... from there, we can look forward to spring renewed, grounded and committed to living a creative, soulful life. 5Rhythms® weaves dance, meditation, conscious movement, full presence, and love. It’s a rhythmic, ecstatic journey through body, mind, emotions, creativity, soul and spirit. There are no steps to follow and no way to do it wrong. Everyone is welcome, no matter what shape, size, age, limitation or experience. All you need is an open curiosity and a willingness to experience the joy of moving deeply and freely. Through the weekend we will invite and support each other to show up fully, playfully, responsibly and truthfully, so that our dance becomes a healing practice, a medicine practice, a creative practice, and a spiritual practice.
