Date and Venue to be arranged
An Expansive day of 5Rhythms dance exploring the limitations and possibilities within the dark and light of the 5Rhythms.
With teacher Neil Pinnock - All Welcome.
'We are not in our bodies, our bodies are inside of us.’ Gabrielle Roth
Following the flow of our own energy and engaging in the staccato dance we energize and then abandon ourselves through the gateway of chaos. If we are total in our task we may well be delivered into the lyrical realms of the ecstatic, find ourselves expanded and liberated in the joyous release of pure lyrical.
Tarrington hall is a light and spacious place to dance with beautiful views and a warm welcome. Bring a shared lunch
Prices from £40 before 5th April
Embodied Heart / Creative Power
Saturday May 9th 2020 - 11am - 6pm
A 5Rhythms Heartbeat* Workshop with Neil Pinnock
“You just have to determine to settle for nothing less than being FULLY ALIVE,
to show up, be who you are, and share your gifts.” Gabrielle Roth
"ANGER IS AN ENERGY" P.I.L.
Our creativity is an innate gift, as is our passion for justice and our sense of right and wrong. Yet many of us are out of tune with our essential power and aren’t expressive of the feelings of our embodied hearts. Often sitting on a well of anger, suppressing or avoiding our passions for life, we humans can be smouldering below the surface, longing to tap into the fire of our bellies and express the truth of what really matters. If we can learn to engage clearly and channel our passions and impulses through the heart, then the anger and fire we feel can be put to a greater service as a creative gift.
This heartbeat level 5Rhythms workshop will explore anger, forgiveness, and connection and willassist you in finding and channeling your creative fire through dance, movement and expression of your hearts. I hope you can join us.
Prices; £395 before end of February,
£425 till April 10th and £450 after.
There may be some bursary assistance - Prices include booking fees, all workshops, facilities and shared dormitory accommodation or camping. Food will be bring and share.
Re-Wilding the Heart
A 5Day 5Rhythms
May 21st - 25th @Wildways Retreat Centre, Shropshire
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 skillfully 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.
"Movement practice gets all your creative juices flowing. It doesn't just release your body, but it opens up your heart and empties out your mind." Gabrielle Roth
June 20th, 11am - 6pm Birmingham
A whole day to take the dance deeper, to give mindful practice to the body and open the pathways to the heart. With guidance from Neil and both the Waves and Heartbeat* maps of the 5Rhythms, we will explore the territory of the embodied heart and begin to awaken a deeper and more loving conscious relating through the dance.
This workshop is a great way to experience Neil’s teaching and is open to anybody. It will also be a good foundation for future Heartbeat work.
*Heartbeat™ is the 2nd map of the 5Rhythms work and focuses on the emotional responses and pathways of the body.
Prices from £40 if booked before June 1st
