With thanks to Michelle Mahrer and the local teachers, I’m grateful to soon have the opportunity to return to Sydney to offer some more dance. This workshop – Transitions – is designed to help prepare for the end the year and begin anew.
From the moment I began dancing the 5Rhythms it was the easiest map to follow. Creatively it made so much sense, as if my body knew what to do next. Gabrielle you are wizard. Thank you.
Years later as a teacher – I had the opportunity to really explore this map. To personalise it and make it my own. I started to become fascinated by the place in-between. In-between flow and staccato, staccato and chaos and so on. The transitions between the rhythms. Musically, I made this my sacred task – to pay attention to transitions.
From the moment I began dancing the 5Rhythms it was the easiest map to follow. Creatively it made so much sense, as if my body knew what to do next.
Four years ago, when I discovered the work on Life’s Transitions by William Bridges, this workshop was born. I connected up the two maps. Exploring the transitions between the 5Rhythms as embodiment medicine to make sense of transitions in life.
This is the territory we will explore in this workshop.
Are you restless? Going through the motions? In need of change but you can’t quite articulate what your feel? You have ‘the niggle’. The voice inside that says “well, I’m doing this and that but…(sigh) …something needs to shift here…”
You may not know what it is? Often you can’t describe it. But if you are willing to dance and ask the questions there is wisdom in the body, trust in the map, integrity in a committed group of workshop explorers and a teacher passionate about creating the space for you to explore your next transition.
Hope we’ll dance together in December.
