A 5Rhythms® Heartbeat & Buddhist Heart Practice
in Vancouver, November 8-10, 2019

Love is not a mood, but a dynamic way of being. - Gabrielle Roth
The spontaneous heart is one that knows how to love and be loved. The 5Rhythms Heartbeat map is a guide to how our emotional energy moves and morphs. In this practice we embody the art of being a fluid emotional athlete. This map teaches us how to navigate the emotional terrain of life without getting stuck, holding on, or pushing away.
We will explore how the body has been shaped by our emotions, tracking when the heart is open and when it is closed. As feelings move us, we learn how to express emotion in a healthy and creative way. 
In this workshop we will integrate the stillness of Buddhist mindfulness meditation with the moving meditations of the 5Rhythms. By incorporating the Brahmavihara (Heart Practices), one can develop the skills of living-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity.
In sitting meditation, we have the opportunity to observe the mind and body at rest through silent introspection. In the practice of the 5Rhythms, we engage in mindfulness while in motion. The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together mirror the dance of life and open the door to peace, well being and balance. 
Pre-requisite: 15 hours of 5Rhythms “Waves” instruction are recommended. 
All workshop hours contribute to 5Rhythms® teachers training prerequisites of the Heartbeat level.

"I had never danced 5Rhythms before. What I got was soul-shaking,
heart-opening, and life changing.  I pushed myself right to that edge and then tumbled over it, which I didn't think I was capable of. 
I went in hoping for an easy week and left having gained a practice for a lifetime."

--  Kelly Brady


"Lucia, you are the goddess of flow and I adore you.
