Workshops & Retreats
UPDATE! BOOKING NOW OPEN!
“Elemental Rhythms – A Series of Residential Intensives”
Rhossili, Gower Coast, South Wales, Apr-Nov 2019
We have our Ongoing Group (‘Rhythm Circle’), a series of evening classes at which the same group of people meet to go a lot deeper into the work — Workshops take it to another level again. In a block of uninterrupted time of at least one full day, better still several days, often in a residential setting, you can shift and expand the energy and ‘vocabulary’ of your dance and the places it takes you in amazing and unpredictable ways.
Many people also find a depth of experience of community with other participants in workshops that is hugely reconnecting and healing. Bernadette’s workshops combine different aspects of her work and experience, weaving the 5 Rhythms® together with, for example, The Work That Reconnects in unique and powerful ways.
- Elemental Rhythms – EARTH: April 2019
- Elemental Rhythms – FIRE: June 2019
- Elemental Rhythms – WATER: Sept 2019
- Elemental Rhythms – AIR: Nov 2019
Attendance at workshops may require prerequisites of a certain number of hours of, or previous attendance at, other 5Rhythms classes or workshops.
Elemental Rhythms workshops may be attended individually, but they will also build on each other in a progressive sequence.
Festivals, Summer Schools etc
These are great opportunity for unity with other dancing tribes – Bernadette is often asked to run classes, workshops or demonstrations at others’ events. We’ll generally flag them up via our mailing list, and key events will also be listed here:
- Spirit Fest Bristol – May 13, 2018
– opening the Festival with a class at 10am
- Tribe of Doris Summer School – Aug 8-12, 2018
– a series of classes throughout the summer school. We also camp and cook together – details circulated via our mailing lists.
This is a collaboration and an emerging body of work between Bernadette Ryder and Dawn Morgan. Based in Stroud, Dawn is an exceptional teacher who brings a depth and breadth of experience plus her own unique flavour to the 5Rhythms. When working together, these two brilliant, yet very different movement teachers are opening new horizons through the co-creation of a beautiful healing approach to this work, which calls on the natural energies of the Earths’ rhythms and cycles.
Currently, Medicine Dance is being presented through workshops and seasonal celebrations (including a popular annual alternative alcohol- and drug-free New Year’s night party). For details and online booking for the next event, please see the Medicine Dance website.
Bernadette is often asked to provide music and dancing for private workshops and events of many kinds – effectively DJ-ing with the intelligence and sensitivity of the 5 Rhythms. If that sounds good to you, please do get in touch!
