All  of us have had times in our life that feel like all we are doing is trudging through, sucking it up, hanging on by the skin of our teeth, and trying our hardest to get it over with (whatever “it” is). We know  in our bodies, hearts, and minds that somewhere out there is an easier way of moving through life but we can’t seem to get out of the way long enough to find it. The 5Rhythms allows us to explore infinite possibilities of moving through this life in a more effortless way. They provide a map where we  can follow our own energy, learn to get out of our own way, and  surrender to what is. They offer a guide to embodying a lighter way of  being and provide a refuge in which to relax into the simple pleasure of  being a body well danced. Come drop those shoulders, unclench that jaw,  release your grip, lighten up and join us for a weekend of “easing  living” on the dance floor.

Waves is the foundational map of Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® movement
meditation practice.

It’s the map that first sets us free to explore our life-long dances of moving and being moved. We come to the Wave to be held, heartened, informed, lightened and inspired by and through our personal and collective creativity. We keep coming back to the Wave to realign body, heart and mind, to remember to move body and soul, and to reconnect body to spirit, flesh to breath, 5Rhythms at a time.

Come start or start over; a weekend respite on the dance floor, to begin, ignite, and re-kindle our love affair with the Wave.
