The 5 Rhythms is a movement and dance meditation practice created by Gabrielle Roth.
‘Energy moves in waves. Waves move in patterns. Patterns move in rhythms. A human being is just that, energy, waves, patterns, and rhythms. Nothing more nothing less. A Dance. ‘Gabrielle Roth
The 5 Rhythms in name are: flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, stillness. They are a study of energy in motion, a Dance that strips you to your naked soul. There is nothing to fall back on but your-self in the dance. It is a dynamic, cathartic, and movement art. The 5 Rhythms map leads us to a depth of deep surrender until we become ‘danced’; we shift attention away from the thinking mind and move through any self-consciousness that is in the way of the dance. It is with discipline and practice that the 5 rhythms become our teacher and medicine for personal growth, healing, inspiration and transformation.
