Dancing Through Gateways: Opening body, heart and mind to states of trance
A 5Rhythms® Movement & Embodiment Workshop with Bettina Rothe
"When we dance, we go beyond thought and beyond our individuality to become one in the divine ecstasy. This is the essence of the trance dance experience." - Goa Gil

In our culture today many of us are experiencing a lack of ecstasy that we might try to fill with other means. The dancing path is an on-going journey from inertia to ecstatic trance. To be in a state of ecstasy means to be fully alive.
In this workshop we will move within the 5Rhythms® maps to anchor into our bodies, so that we can then open our hearts and minds to moments of ecstatic trance. Live drummers will support us on our journey.
No previous experience is required. Every body is welcome.
