To alleviate the physical and mental struggle of people everywhere.
Meditation Moves uses meditative movement tools such as the 5Rhythms, wisdom traditions and insightful inquiry to nourish and bring awareness to our minds and bodies.
The Meditation Moves and 5Rhythms practice:
This practice helps us balance the mind, body and emotions. We learn to move mindfully through the rhythms of flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness. This is an exploration of internal body rhythms and a method of tuning into nature’s dance. We use eclectic music and various movement exercises to explore vibrations and unlock physical creativity. This is not a practice of learning dance steps. It is a practice of freeing ourselves and letting go. We will break through our usual physical patterns, examine human interaction and find stillness within our own unique movement. This life-transforming practice is suitable for anyone over 16 and all levels of physical fitness. It will also support whatever practice you are exploring now, or offer a strong start to self-exploration. No previous experience is necessary.
Doing the 5Rhythms is about waking up to your most essential nature. Stretching your intuition and imagination as surely as your body. It’s a formless form, one that expands your range of physical and emotional expression and introduces you to forgotten parts of your psyche. It awakens intuitive intelligence and artistic sensibilities. Working out should be inspiring, not just riding some bicycle while reading People magazine. Working out should be like having a conversation with your body and spirit; it should be personal, intimate, and holy, not boring and painfully repetitive.
