“When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it’s bottomless, that it doesn’t have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space.” Pema Chödrön
HEART WAVES is a beautiful opportunity to search inside of our hearts and find the answers that we look for on the outside and with others. This is an invitation to dance the dance that only we can dance and to do that in company of others; all surrendering to the mystery of what it is to be alive right now.
We will go one day at a time, step by step following the 5Rhythms map. Morning sessions will be Heartbeat level classes with Silvija, and evening sessions will be Sweat Your Prayers with Thierry.
In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. . We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away. We dance towards our spontaneous heart, the heart that is ready for anything.
The intention of Sweat Your Prayers is to have relatively little formal instruction, relying on the individual to create and support one’s own and therefore one another’s dance. It is a time to practice the 5Rhythms Wave, and most importantly learn to follow one’s own inner world. Afternoons will be left to our imagination, to our co-creation with the amazing natural gifts of this amazing island, to the medicine of sun and sea. And, one evening we will have a beach party to dance the joy of being alive.
“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words
than words without a heart. ”
Workshop will be led in English.
