Masquerade: a 5Rhythms® Embodiment Workshop on the Cusp of the New Year with Bettina Rothe & Evangelos Diavolitsis

How do we become sacred activists for our personal and collective dreams?
What hidden and underused archetypes need to be activated to move forward?

The archetype of the shapeshifter has the ability to change. We all have the potential to bring forth different versions of our untapped selves and to expand beyond our habitual identities.  Summon your superhero or avatar. You might even need to temporarily wake up your inner villain to move blocked energy. A masquerade will only last as long as long as our lies so we
invite you to dance into the unseen truth.
The 5Rhythms® movement practice offers maps for healing and a pathway to our infinite inner source. They lead our being from fragmentation into wholeness, from feeling imprisoned in our identity to states of profound freedom. In this workshop we will create simple masks to help bring our shapeshifter to life. Instead of masking to hide or cover up, we will reveal and strengthen aspects of ourselves that we wish to embody, birth or grow.

Come and join us for this playful yet transformative weekend on the cusp of the year. Together we can embody the change we wish to see in the world. This is Bettina’s and Evangelos’ first time offering this workshop in North America. Every body is welcome.

Teachers                                                                                                     Evangelos Diavolitsis                                                                                   Evangelos Diavolitsis is a certified 5Rhythms facilitator & meditation teacher who trained directly with founder of the 5Rhythms Gabrielle Roth. He has been continuously studying with meditation masters Achariya Doug Duncan Sensei and Catherine Pawasarat Sensei since 2002. He creates an atmosphere that is adventurous and safe, weaving a delicate chemistry of humour & analytical self-exploration. The healing modalities he is trained in create a space where individuals acknowledge, move through and release conditioned patterns from the past.
He has taught across Canada, Japan, Europe and the U.S.  Based in Calgary but serving innovative movers everywhere, he has a passion for integrating expressive dance and the path of self-actualization with meditation and the arts. His workshops and classes empower participants to seek ways to allow their passion to be expressed, their curiosity to be fulfilled and their gifts to be shared in a way that manifests optimal personal potential, abundance and joyful play.

Bettina Rothe                                                                                                          My gift is to wake people up to the innate wisdom of their bodies, to help them drop below the level of thought, to access their beings in motion. I bring people together into an authentic and safe environment to discover the joy and intelligence of the non-verbal, the intuitive and the power of being fully embodied. I facilitate the learning of tools to help people discover their full capacity to live and lead with greater clarity, presence and impact. Bringing attention to body posture, movement, breath, sensations, impulses and instincts honours the intelligence of the body.
My practice bridges multiple disciplines with a strong focus on movement, mindfulness and embodied leadership principles. I am particularly interested in the field of somatic intelligence where mind, emotions and intuition unite in the body. My invitation is to use the body as a resource and a gateway to increase our power and ability to impact through our physical presence. This brings awareness and insight into what’s within, while also tracking the environment, the task at hand and things bigger than each person. The way we hold ourselves in our bodies influences the way we think, feel and act in the world. My approach to coaching is one of embodied spirituality that honours the body and all that is seated in it including instincts, sensations, feelings and sexuality. https://www.bettinarothe.com
