SHE- Power, Beauty & the Beast
A 5Rhythms® Movement & Embodiment Retreat
with Bettina Rothe, Sarah Calvert, Samantha Gray, Delia Aaron, Shauna Devlin, Melanie Phillips & Kylee Dawn
June 19-20, 2020

We invite you to join in the creation of sacred space that celebrates the Feminine.
As SHEs we will come together to honour our body temples and the wisdom they hold, finding within our true power and beauty.

Through the transformative practice of 5Rhythms® we will bring kindness and compassion into the cracks and wounds of our humanness. 5Rhythms® is a path of integration, of healing the split between spirit and body; a path of dancing ourselves back into wholeness.

Through storytelling and witnessing, we will honour the stories we each hold that have created separation, doubt and our own version of the “beast within”.

Through Embodiment and Voice work we will explore how to claim our power and stand in our unapologetic truth. 

Morning Yoga will support us in our embodiment and energetic alignment. Kundalini Yoga will be taught by Sarah Calvert, Ayurvedic Yoga will be offered by Melanie Phillips.

A nourishing feminine dance and fire ceremony will be offered by Delia Aaron during the Summer Solstice Celebration.

Together we will step through the gateway to becoming the embodied, feminine, intuitive, powerful beings we are meant to be.

No previous experience is required. 
Everyone is welcome who identifies as a SHE.

"The embodied feminine power practices we learned at the SHE workshop fed my soul in a way I didn't even realize I had been craving. I made friends with the place where my power lives, and I experienced myself showing up to life from that place.
I cried, I roared, I laughed, I made new friends. I felt true safety with other women. 
Together, as women of all ages and backgrounds, we danced, and we sang, and we witnessed each other as sisters, with hearts full of love and compassion.
There is nothing this world needs more." 

-- Danielle Rondeau, lawyer, author and life coach 

"The future of our daughters’ daughters is birthing itself right now, through you.
Breathe right here, dear one,
with this experience,
with this longing in the heart,
with these feelings,
with these sensations.
Through the mess and perfection of you,
the Goddess is weaving you into her wholeness, initiating you from the deep below."

~ Chameli Ardagh
"Bettina opens and holds space on the dance floor and even oline that allows for vast limitless journeying, deep connection to self and others (if chosen), healing, life force, acceptance, freedom, and pure simple sweat and smiling eyes. Her knowledge and connection to the body, psychology, spirit, and community provides such a grounding, mind blowing/shattering experience in her 5Rhythms offerings.
She is a true revolutionary leader, providing the space and wisdom for much needed healthy human connection, movement and expression.  Her commitment to the community extends far creating a world that we all dream of where we share and trust and express love freely."
-- Dominique Matejczuk
