Riding the Wild Fire (W)
26 May 17 - 28 May 17
-
Austria, Linz Linz, Austria

There is an edge within us. It’s elemental, raw, a force of nature and deeply human, an instinctive intelligence that knows how to live, breathe and move in total connection with all things. Riding this fiery edge we dare to be wild and true, desire passionately and act spontaneously, speak the truth, risk mistakes and grow through all of it.

We will use the 5 rhythms to find our ground, balance, and power: walking right on the edge where we are both gentle and fierce, disciplined and free. We take that edge into relationship with others, to give and receive generously, to stand our ground whilst being open to changing, practicing the art of transformation through communication, confrontation and communion so we can live: wild and true.

One Dance Tribe
15 Jun 17 - 21 Jun 17

Germany, Kisslegg Kisslegg, Germany
Enjoy a full week of conscious movement with teachers, dancers and visionaries from all over the world. 5Rhythms, Soul Motion, Movement Medicine, Open Floor, Azul, and more.
I was involved with this for the first time last year, and can totally recommend it. I loved the way we shed our differences and fell in love with the dance as the root of all our practices. For me, the 5Rhythms is it, but it didn’t matter. The common thread between all these practices became somehow more apparent by moving through them all.

Moving (W)
23 Jun 17
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Belgium, Brussels Brussels, Belgium

You never know what will happen when you step onto a dance floor. The body has its own mysterious wisdom, and the 5Rhythms practice has a way of taking you right in there. One night it might get you deeply grounded and physical, the next you’re having a big emotional release, and then another time you’re having a profound mystical experience that you don’t understand, full of wonder. So be it.

Whether you’re a highly experienced dancer or completely new, you just take a step, breathe deeply, and let go into the timeless way of humans being, moving together as a way of tuning in and getting real with each other, surrendering to this extraordinary life we are all living on earth.

Belgium, Brussels Brussels, Belgium

“There is no way to happiness – happiness is the Way” Buddha

We put one foot in front of other and take a step.

Within the incredibly rich diversity of experience on a 5Rhythms dance floor, there’s really only one thing going on. That one core thing is so simple it cannot be named. It just is.

Around that we move, breathe, and pay attention. Then also we have company on the path, soul-mirrors of fellow travellers who can help us feel deeper and see further.

We are dancers, lovers, pilgrims on the way of life.

Evolution (W)
30 Jun 17 - 02 Jul 17

Germany, Köln Tanzfaktur, Siegburger Str. 235w
Köln, Germany

These are wild times. We’re not just on the edge, we’re off the edge and falling. We need to change, radically, and it’s happening. There’s a shift in consciousness taking place that is profound, far reaching, beyond any one of us, and involving all of us.

There’s a mighty river bursting it’s banks everywhere, and it’s rushing through each one of us. We are being called, cajoled and catapulted into new ways of being that require us to let go of our fixed ideas and patterns, to expand beyond what we thought possible and allow more energy to flow through us than ever before.

Let’s open up to our potential both individually and collectively, to allow growth to happen, find healing where it’s needed, and move on! We drop into the beat and dance our socks off, letting go of our little self, giving our feet and breath to the big dream that we’re seeking, as ONE.

5-day Heartbeat (HB)
30 Aug 17 - 02 Sep 17
-
United Arab Emirates, Dubai Al Quoz
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Oh! Feelings! We hurt, desire, love, laugh, get pissed off and freaked out – so many strong feelings! How to find the strength and beauty in our vulnerability? How to be open-hearted through fear, anger and sadness, so that joy is real and compassion has substance?
Fear is the big one of course – we react so fast and so habitually to avoid our fears, it mostly happens below the radar of our conscious awareness. To turn the other way and face our fears is a profound meditation and life-practice. It requires humility, discipline, patience and humour. It’s not easy, particularly when it comes to the fear of our own feelings. Yet the reward is priceless, truly our deepest longing – to be love.
Heartbeat moves through this landscape, opening out, diving in, taking the experience of emotional energy back to it’s roots: the body. We take the shadows and light of these emotional energies and put them into motion — embodied, expressed, released — through the 5Rhythms your feelings become a source of creative power and presence both on and off the dance floor, to find the courage to love and be loved.
The workshop will include space for individual work, hence the long hours on Saturday, offering a deeper personal experience of Heartbeat-level 5Rhythms.

The Power of Intention (W/HB)
22 Sep 17 - 24 Sep 17
-
Australia, Mullumbimby Mullumbimby, Australia

Dance deep and true, to open up your five essential powers: of being, feeling, knowing, seeing and healing. Out of these five powers comes the ability to truly choose, with everything you have.

What’s going well?

What’s hurting?

Where’s the growth?

What do you……fear?……desire?…..intend?

Dance deep and true, to give all these questions to the wild moment of power – NOW – get free of your own head-trips and align your will with your intention to make some things happen. This will be a highly focused workshop designed to bring your dreams to earth and empower your choices for the year ahead: for yourself, your tribe and our world.

Note from Adam: “You will get much more out of this event if you book well in advance. From the moment you book your place, your psyche begins it’s journey in a way that does not happen if you’re just telling yourself ‘I will do it soon…’ Because we’re working with dreams and intention here this will make a difference. Action has power. Pick up the phone or send an email and start your journey now!”

Heartbeat (HB)
14 Oct 17 - 15 Oct 17
-
United Kingdom, Cardiff Cardiff, United Kingdom

We all have strong feelings – about ourselves, each other, and life – even if they’re buried deep. We are meant to get scared enough to wake up and move, to get pissed off enough to change things, to cry deeply enough to truly let go of what we’ve lost. Then joy and compassion have deep roots and bold possibilities. The real problem is we’re scared of our own feelings, and we’ve learnt to avoid our own fear rather than go through it.

Heartbeat is wild strong medicine for numb, broken, frozen hearts, as well as for our hard-hearted culture that’s going crazy trying to escape itself and find itself at the same time. It maps out the ways your feelings and your wounded shadows move so you can use their energy for creative action, and become a stillpoint in the storm of your own heart. It is a deep meditation and a celebration of loving; embodied, expressed, released, your feelings become a source of creative power and presence both on and off the dance floor, to find the courage to love and be loved.

The God Pattern
27 Oct 17 - 29 Oct 17
-
United Kingdom, London London, United Kingdom

Dance, sex, and deep mathematics

The 5 rhythms are not just rhythms! They are the movement-based manifestation of a pattern that describes the way consciousness and matter interface with each other. This pattern shows up all over the human psyche from sex to meditation, and it also shows up in breaking waves where there’s the same kind of interface going on (between the ocean and the shoreline). However, it also shows up in mathematics, in the relationship between the number π which describes circles, and the number 0 which describes emptiness.

There’s a simple equation called “Euler’s Identity” that is known throughout the scientific world as the stand-alone jewel of mathematical beauty. It ties together the five most important and fundamental numbers in existence (the first and fifth of which are π and 0) in such an elegant and perfect way that it is almost shocking.

This equation is the same pattern as the 5Rhythms. Not only does each number have the same quality as one of the rhythms, but the numbers are related to each other in precisely the same way that the rhythms are. That these two patterns —each of which is renowned in its own field as extraordinary— are in fact one and the same… that’s wild and holy magic.

The numbers teach us some new things about the rhythms, and this workshop is the first one of its kind, where you get to explore that.

You don’t need any ability with maths to take part!! You will get to experience the rhythms in some new ways however, learning how to use your intelligence as well as your sweat to weave the deepest instincts of your body together with the invisible silence that is carried on the wings of the breath.

One Heart (HB)
03 Nov 17 - 05 Nov 17

Germany, Berlin Breite Str 43
Berlin, 13187 Germany

There’s really only one problem – how we respond to fear. And there’s really only one solution – to love. Yet how?

When we’re lost in our own shadows with a heavy body, murky heart and a mind doing overtime, how do we find the way out? How do we find the courage to move through our fears, stand in the integrity of our anger, let sadness wash us totally clean? How to bring joy to a world that’s so often heartless? Where can we find the compassion in which all our wild and crazy feelings find their resting place? How do we fall in love with love, over and over again?

Moving through the 5 rhythms we constantly explore these questions, making the journey from frozen fear to love in motion, where the experience of feeling becomes a wild and passionate meditation. We make these steps on the dance floor, so that the pathways are there for us in day to day life. The rhythms are deep and vital medicine for our personal and cultural hang-ups, unleashing the part of us that is truly a warrior, healer, friend and lover.

As the structures of our world are breaking down in so many ways, we need each other more than ever – to break down the walls within and between us. Yes, we need to befriend our own hearts, but let’s not stop there, let’s go on to reach out and touch the world. Time to sweat our stuff, let the spirit of all things take us through and beyond whatever is holding us back in life, to the place where we are one dance, one voice, one heart.

Right Here, Right Now (W/HB)
08 Dec 17 - 10 Dec 17
-
France, Paris Paris, France

To be a embodied warrior of the heart; No matter whether pleasurable or painful, whether I’m alone or in company, whether I understand what’s happening or not, I will say yes to this experience and be as creative as I can with what I have, I will seek the growth and learning and healing here, I will let this moment dance me even deeper awake and alive, in love, in truth, with every breath I have.

This is not for the faint-hearted, but then none of us are faint-hearted. Not really. We all have a longing for life, love, and freedom so profound that deep down we will tackle anything to reach for it. Maybe sometimes we lose hope, but even then we can help each other out, encourage, cheer on, take hands. We don’t have to do this alone.

We move through the 5Rhythms to free the body and open the heart, listening to their endless source of wisdom and learning, to expand, empower, and enlighten our presence, so that whatever comes our way becomes our meditation.

This is it: right here, right now.

Refuge (W)
15 Dec 17 - 17 Dec 17
-
Finland, Helsinki Helsinki, Finland

Midwinter is naturally a time of stillness, quiet, and rest. All too often it is precisely the opposite, and we stress ourselves way beyond what is healthy. So this is a weekend to unplug, switch off, and take Refuge in the arms of movement as prayer. To be within the quiet intimacy of the breath with the body, and know ourselves to be bigger, deeper, and so much more mysterious than the corporate media machine would have us believe. Waves can arise, pass through, and be resolved, falling back into a profound peace that is already here, when we choose.
