Exploring Fear and Courage
A 5Rhythms Heartbeat* workshop - Bristol
February 1st, 11am - 6pm
DMAC UK Studio 2, Hamilton House, 80 Stokes Croft, BS1 3QY Bristol
As we connect our feet, move the body and feel our heart we build relationship and develop more trust in ourselves. Trust in our feelings, trust in our embodied, intuitive guidance system, trust in our choices. Fear can be debilitating. Fear can close down the heart, freeze the feet and block the path to our true destiny. As we learn to trust ourselves, find the courage to feel our fear and stay open and moving then it becomes easier to have choices, to follow the path with heart. In this workshop we will use the 5Rhythms movement maps to develop a deeper trust in our feeling body and intuitive wisdom. We will explore movement patterns around fear and courage and develop pathways so we can take them both as allies, trusting them to be an integral part of the intelligent design of our whole human being. Take heart, feel your fear and have the courage to join us, you will have no regret.
*Heartbeat™ is the 2nd map of the 5Rhythms and focuses on the emotions.
It is useful to have some experience in 5Rhythms to attend this workshop

The heart is designed to feel, to love, to express, yet so often we have held back our hearts, built up protective armour, abandoned them or simply forgotten to listen and include them. Without a clear heart connection we can feel lost to ourselves, distant from loved ones & closed down to the world of nature, magic and wonder around us. Our task is to re-connect to our feelings, build a healthy functioning relationship to our emotions so that we can truly appreciate and engage with the world in which we live. It is time for us to step in and empower our hearts, connect with love and claim our place in the natural order of things. It is time to Re-wild the Heart.
This workshop will be held at Wildways, a natural retreat centre in Shropshire with direct connection to the elements. Here we will dance in a yurt and out on the land, honouring the wild nature that runs through all things as we commune with earth, wind, water and fire.
Neil Pinnock will be your guide, he is passionate and tender, humorous and wise. He has a Druids heart, a deep connection to this land and he skilfully weaves ancient and contemporary wisdom with equal regard. He offers this work to guide you into a direct relationship with your Embodied Heart, supporting you to open and feel, acknowledge and be real. In the disorderly realm of the emotions it is of great benefit to have maps, tools and guides as support, helping to uncover and create new pathways through the wilderness back to your heartfelt, loving self.
As a member of 5RTA, work with Neil counts towards the
5Rhythms teacher training and this workshop counts as a 5day Heartbeat.
