Sacred Light

Nine flames

Five rhythms

One centre, one Stillpoint, the fifth element — we are always breathing the One.

Four pairs, four dual corners of the world — we are always moving through light and shadow.

Let’s awaken these flames!

Dancing, complications disappear and each step becomes a prayer.

Let’s move through the shadows, reclaiming our forgotten powers through the magical labyrinth of the 5Rhythms, bringing our deepest selves over and over again to light, unearthing forgotten dreams and returning all to the One.

Fear, Power & Transformation
25 Jan 19 - 27 Jan 19
-
Germany, Munich Herrnstr. 21
Munich, 80539 Germany

Fear is real. It is primal, instinctive, and holds enormous power if we can find the courage to face it, feel it, and go through it. Mostly we avoid feeling fear by tensing up and holding our breath, but it’s true nature is simply energy – a life-giver, a heart opener, an agent of transformation and rebirth.
Becoming aware of our fears, learning to distinguish between mind-games and the animal instinct for danger, having the courage to do scary things for love or adventure – these are all basic life-skills essential for a whole-hearted experience of being human. So we investigate the light and shadows of these energies through the 5 Rhythms, letting it all move through the body so that our power is rooted in our vulnerability, so we walk in beauty.
You must have some previous experience of the 5 Rhythms with an accredited teacher to take part, and you will need a willingness to feel whatever comes up, not take yourself too seriously, and be open to change.

Deep Focus

Belgium, Orval Bois-le-Comte
Orval, Belgium

Now in it’s 6th year: if you’ve been practicing the 5Rhythms for a while, then this may be for you: a workshop format designed to radically open up your ability to work creatively and personally with the 5Rhythms maps.

We’re aiming for a group of dancers who have both the will and the experience to focus their work in a more specific way than is usually possible in a workshop setting. Being residential, we can work long hours whilst still having time to rest and integrate: as well as moving together, each of you will work individually with the support of myself and the group, taking your practice to a whole new level, open out your perception of what’s possible, and free up your potential in motion.

We’ll be working in the wonderful Ost-West Centrum: fully catered, great dance space with a heated floor, woods to walk in around us.

“This is the most advanced work I offer, and only available on this workshop: if you already have some experience at Waves and Heartbeat level of the Rhythms maps, and you’re seeking to create a more personal and particular relationship between your own unique path and practice then you are welcome to jump in. Write to me if you have any questions.” Adam

Gratitude
09 Feb 19 - 10 Feb 19
-
Switzerland, Geneva Geneva, Switzerland

It’s easy to be grateful when everything in the garden is rosy, but what about when it’s not? These are turbulent times for most of us right now, and being grateful for ‘what is’ might seem impossible. Gratitude is light, and like all things lyrical it has a subtlety about it that makes it easy to miss, but when you find it, the whole picture changes like magic, and it can become a buoyant boat in stormy waters. 

The 5Rhythms offers us a way to give space for everything – the pain and the pleasure – as simply different dances, so we’re not looking for light by denying the shadow. On the contrary, light has a way of bringing up all that is not light, and we’ll make space to face that and move through it. We will find ways into the reality of whatever your personal experience is in the moment, to include all light and shade, and practice the subtle art of gratitude and appreciation for all of it. Just like Lyrical, its true nature is effortless, but until you’re there, it seems a world way. Then when you least expect it, you pop through the gateway and everything is different. Being rooted in a body that’s free to move, a heart that’s open to feeling, and a mind that’s willing to let the truth keep changing – then we have the possibility for gratitude that can light up our days and nights, bringing colour and transformation to unlikely places.

This is a ‘Heartbeat’ workshop: you need at least 15 hours 5Rhythms study to take part.

The Tao of Loving
21 Feb 19 - 23 Feb 19

United Arab Emirates, Dubai Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Love is not just a feeling, it’s an action too. Emotional energies naturally become action if we follow them through.

Being willing to face our fear: gives us courage to move. Dynamic Loving
Expressing our anger all the way: brings us to forgiveness. Fierce Loving
Truly releasing into sadness: we can surrender to life. Total Loving
Being full of joy: we become naturally generous. Delightful Loving
And compassion: simply is service. Open Loving

This is the Tao of Loving: courageous, forgiving, surrendered, and generously in service.

So here is our practice — to move through our emotional world deeply enough to not only feel love but to be loving. To open up the pathways from fear to love in movement, so that our feelings become an offering to the world around us.

Hungary, Budapest Jurányi u. 1
Budapest, 1027 Hungary

Co-led with Visudha de los Santos

Five days to immerse ourselves in the dance between men and women. We will be all together for the first night, then separate groups for two days, then back together for the weekend. Time without the opposite sex is profoundly fruitful, empowering us to meet each other with the open-hearted and well grounded honesty that we all need so deeply.

Things are hotting up between us! In this re-defining period, it’s easy to be consumed by the chaos, not knowing what the other wants, how to communicate. We are riddled with pains and injustices. Some of it righteously so, and a lot of it – simply stories. It’s all too easy to get attached to being right and point fingers across the divide. 

Instead, we will dance deep into the bones, blood and breath of our experience. To willingly and vulnerably embody all we are, speak from the heart. To see and hear each other’s differences. To celebrate our common humanity. We are alive, and sexual, and everything is opening and changing! Wow! 

Can we meet, move, discover, and make the passage together across the divide?
