Feedback…

Elemental Rhythms is a series of four workshops, each devoted to the teachings of one of the elements: Earth, Fire, Water and Air. The workshops can be done individually, but they will also build on each other in a progressive sequence – each element being a gateway to a deeper connection with our world, our-selves, and our potential.

Workshop 1- EARTH: Working particularly with Flowing, the body, the physical, and the feminine – teaching the power of being. April 25th – 28th

Workshop 2 – FIRE: Working with Staccato, the landscape of heart, feeling, passion, tenderness, and the masculine – teaching the power of loving.[MORE SOON] June 20th – 23rd
Workshop 3 – WATER: Working with Chaos, the energy field of the mind, the ego, the trickster, and intuition – teaching the power of knowing.[MORE SOON] Sept 19th – 22nd
Workshop 4 – AIR: Working with Lyrical, the soul, the imagination – Stepping into a vision quest and the teachings of the power of seeing.[MORE SOON] Nov 14th – 17th

In our chosen residential setting – with its rolling moorland, secluded beaches and windswept cliffs – the elements are so powerfully present that opening to their potency, and letting them guide and inspire our work is both easy and obvious.

Add to the stunning location: a supportive community of dedicated dancers, nourishing whole earth food by the celebrated Café Momo, an exceptionally experienced and committed teacher, and we have all the ingredients needed to facilitate deep healing and nourishing work.

don’t just take our word for it – read the feedback!

The greatest gift of the 5 Rhythms is that, when engaged with deeply and fully, it takes us on a journey of progressive expansion towards our full potential as creative, loving beings. Catalytic in nature, it works to free the body, open the heart, still the mind and awaken consciousness. Ultimately, this entirely physical practice is a spiritual experience.
