Being here, living and breathing is full of peculiar paradoxes; and anything that makes us more embodied will likely bring us closer to them all! By dropping deeper into the body we will inevitable become more intimate with ourselves others and the wider world around us. Being in a body we get to feel fully- it may be deeply delicious - or alternatively it can take some stamina to learn to stay with the sensations arising within us! As we get more embodied we may feel both deeply feeling filled and deliciously emptied out! There is both so, so, so much amazing stuff to learn, in the direction of our self actualising. Of course there is simultaneously completely nothing to do and nowhere to get to! Clear seeing, allowing and accepting can work much magic! It really is just all about cultivating choice of where we put our attention... To be fully here and human we get to own both our shadow and a shine. The can tend to be a focus on shadow and self improvement- yet I reckon that being guided by our gifts is an important imperative too. Why not reflect a little more on your own sweet shine! what qualities and ways of being you have within you, that you will bring forward and offer out to the wider world? May we dare to bloom bright my dears...

In 2018 we continued our popular summer series of 5Rhythms dance classes right on Brighton Beach (UK). In 2019 we will begin offering sunsets sessions in the San Francisco Bay area (USA).
For the UK Friday night "Sunset Sessions" we use silent disco headsets to start the dance in a beautiful beach front studio, with windows wide open to the seashore as the sun sets. Mid session, when we are fully warmed up, we head outside to dance by sea and sky. There are no steps to learn, nothing to get right, just being with our own body as we move to the music. All classes are guided by accredited 5Rhythms teacher Tess Howell.
Advance booking is strictly necessary for Friday night sessions (in 2018 there won't be any places available on the door).Time is 8 to 9.30pm. No previous dance experience is necessary, just a willingness to dive in and join the dance.
There are 35 headsets available and these events regularly sell out, advance booking is highly recommended via the meetup link to the left. Sorry we can’t “save” people places without a booking, nor can we magically create more headsets once all of the places are sold out!!
Be warmly welcomed, we very much hope to see you there.
In 2019 will be also offering outdoor Sunrise Sessions down on the seafront- details and dates to follow via our mailing list-please sign up below.
