Coalescence: With Cassie Sept 19-20, 2014 Shelburne, VT

Coalescence:
The drawing together of two or more elements to form unity.
The modern world asks much of us in the pursuit of independence and stability. As individuals we stand on our own two feet feeling the weight of responsibility for ourselves.  What if we were to have a physical shift in perspective that asked us to intertwine the single thread that unites us all.  These unique bodies come with spiraling individual lives; yet we are moving together always. This connection is an unshakable fact. In the dance we learn welcome this truth of unique and unity, Individuality and commonality.   The dance invites our bodies into motion so we may feel the true wisdom that we are all threads woven into the tapestry of this world.

Body Prayer with Amara Pagano Atlanta, GA May 16-18 2014

Body Prayer:
Our body is a direct gateway to our center. We have in each moment a pathway that leads us home Home to a centered and grounded presence that comes from fully inhabiting every cell of our body. This is the way of Body Prayer, the practice of being, being centered in ourselves, rooted in mystery, and grounded in the moment. From here life opens up. What needs to come through us finds ultimate flow. Our power is realized and our ability to express who and what we are comes into form. The dance is the vehicle, the 5Rhythms and Azul the map, our willingness the fuel.

Spiral Spirit Movement: March 7&8 Sarasota FL.

1798479_10152176916997570_1757615015_n copy
Seek the love of embodiment and find the embodiment of love

The movement of the body is one of our greatest gifts. With the movement of our hips, expanded hearts and emptying of heads we are offered vast territory to explore our inner landscape. We have the choice to open ourselves in the dance and move into the greatness we are here to be.
Our bodies in motion give us permission to ask the big questions and truly listen. We can align with a larger truth beyond our stories if we are willing to let them go. This dance is about allowing true freedom and cultivating love. Love of the body. love of the self and love of others.
The spiral of music will ask us to follow, while the breath of our being will ask us to lead. It is between the outward and inward investigation where we find our true selves.
Cassie has been practicing a variety of different movement modalities for the last 9 years in Asheville, NC and many other dance communities. 5 Rhythms, SoulMotion, and Dance Meditation have offered her a broad color pallet and range of experiences for her inspiration on the dance floor. Cassie offers great compassion and generosity while holding a strong space for everyone’s experience. All ages are welcome. No dance experience necessary, just your curiosity and willingness.

“I have been involved in this type of practice for many years, and Cassie truly understands the purpose of this practice: to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for people to explore their inner experiences through movement.” Eric Aufdencamp

Alchemy: 5Rhythms Dance Workshop With Visudha de los Santos Feb 21-23,2014

Alchemy: Feb 21-23 2014
People of all cultures have moved & danced from the beginning of time to cry and pray for visions. Through these ways they received understanding, direction, and moments of grace. They remembered, and lived both the sacredness and the connection to all living things.
Dance, Music, and Ritual speak to the soul and bridge body, heart and mind. We will offer our physical beings to space and motion, seek out wisdom from within, and create real and direct connections to the beyond, with ancestral and spirit beings. In this quest the soul transcends the profane human experience and expands one’s capacity for true connection, authentic love, and ecstatic experience.

Shape Shifter 5 Rhythms with Kate Shela Nov 7-10, 2013

Shape Shifter 5 Rhythms with Kate Shela

In lyrical we realize that we have the freedom to keep shape shifting energies so as never to get stuck in any one possibility and know that all possibilities are available to us at all times. Indeed lyrical is the rhythm of the soul and the soul is a shape shifter by nature.”  Gabrielle Roth

We dance into Lyrical to empty out and to get to the place where clear vision comes, where instinct, intimacy and intuition create the zone of the seer.  When we are free from the restrictions of our tiny critical minds, when we are unburdened by the weight we carry in our muscles, we open to our potential of connecting with the whole. In SHAPE SHIFTER we will quest for fluidity, so as to move between the worlds of the mundane and the magical, to move between our ego and our humility and enter the zone of inter-connection.  Moving through the landscapes of the 5 Rhythms map, we will dance long and deep to finally arrive in the exquisite space of the artist in motion, where self realization will lead you forward.

Created by Gabrielle Roth, the 5 Rhythms is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness and awareness into action.

In Flowing we become rooted in the feminine, in Staccato we investigate the masculine, In Chaos we explore how they integrate within us, in Lyrical we realize we are works of art in process and in stillness we seek the emptiness within us.

Dancing Through The Veil: with Cassie Brizzi Knoxville, TN. Fall 2013

Spiral Spirit Dance presents

Dancing Through The Veil

This is an invitation to move into the mystery through the body. With movement we cultivate the place to listen to the pauses in between. This is where we feel our intuition and intention. Combined they guide and encourage us toward what we wish to create in our lives. Opening this space for ourselves, we invite more spaciousness for others. Collectively we investigate the breath of the pause in between our heartbeats. We feel ourselves as we arrive to each moment. As we explore the still point we find there is action. How do we initiate movement from this rich and fertile soil? We can feel the mystery embrace us, supporting us, as we move forward more fully into who we are meant to be.

The Shift: 5Rhythms and Gong Meditation with Visudha de los Santos Feb 1-3, 2013

The Shift: With Visudha de los Santos Feb 1-3, 2013

Moving With Life Consciously. Life is exciting! We do and accomplish so much, so that we can live the life of our dreams. But are we really? Do you know? The entire universe stands on tip toe happily waiting to assist you in miraculous and amazing ways to manifest your dreams and intentions. Using the amazing strength and power of your internal landscape, the 5Rhythms movement meditation, a trans-formative Gong Journey, and the mystery of the unknown and the present moment, we explore how the rhythm of Lyrical can assist the life of our dreams.  Using curiosity and gratitude, we will review where we’ve been, and more importantly be purposeful about where we are going.  Through honoring what was, we can then step fully with what is. As we clarify and strengthen our intentions, and add purposeful action, our receptivity to the great gifts of the universe opens as the bud of a flower.

Lucia Horan 5Rhythms Workshop “HeartBeat” March 29-31 2013

lucia -5891

Description: HeartBeat

“Love is not a mood, but a dynamic way of being.” Gabrielle Roth. The spontaneous heart is one that knows how to love and be loved. The Heartbeat map is a guide to how our emotional energy moves and morphs. In this practice we embody the art of being a fluid emotional athlete. This map teaches us how to navigate the emotional terrain of life without getting stuck, holding on, or pushing away. We will explore how the body has been shaped by our emotions and we will learn to track when the heart is open and when it is closed. As waves of feeling move through us, we learn how to trust the dance to lead us in a healthy and creative way. Through the embodiment of this practice, you will learn skills to take home and use in your daily life. Recommended reading: Sweat Your Prayers: Gabrielle Roth Maps to Ecstasy: Gabrielle Roth
