We are essentially fluid beings constantly changing as
we breathe and move through life, opening and closing,
learning, forgetting, remembering. We can easily forget this
though and lose our presence in fixed roles and seemingly
solid identities …as if… we were objects untouched by
feelings. Gabrielle, in her Mirrors mapping’ called these
states “ego characters”. Circumstance combined with our
innate sensitivity often leads us, particularly in the
company of others, to act …as if… we were these characters
that we hide behind.
Presenting ourselves in some way as if we have life nicely
managed, we learn to become self limiting, hoping to be
approved of, to be loved, hiding the very vulnerability
which makes us “human” in the best possible sense, This
humanity, which can so unite us, create community and deep
empathy can, when fear arises become quickly covered over
with judgment and isolation. We lose the ability to see and
clearly feel the beauty behind the mask.
We both fear and seek attention from “others”. Using the
Perspectives process which offers individual attention
within careful group holding we can uncover more than these
ego character styles, detaching from them, making them more
visible for all to see, hold, respond to and release.
No participant is pushed, each one having the possibility to
follow their own pace. We can witness ourselves as we are
mirrored by others, embracing and embodying our own shapes
and movements with the support of the group. We practise
moving to reconnect to the core intelligence of body, breath
and bone, so tapping in to a more universal intelligence
that allows us to get better at seeing ourselves and others
with delight and fascination. This work enables us to
develop clearer perspective, compassion and respect for the
Mystery and vulnerability that connects us all.
the head and feet of any given person is a billion miles of
unexplored wilderness. I yearned to know what was going on
in that wilderness, not only in me, but in everyone else as
well . . . We dance to shed skins, tear off masks, crack
molds, and experience the breakdown – the shattering of
borders between body, heart and mind . . . “ - Gabrielle

WORKSHOP LEVEL DETAILS
This workshop is a 5Rhythms Teacher Training prerequisite.
The Mirrors Map leads us to recognize what Gabrielle Roth
referred to as “Ego Characters”, how we all have a cast of
these endlessly rehashed roles, can learn to spot them, name
them, embody them, exaggerate them and practice
dis-identifying from them so we might, even when under
pressure, move more closely to authenticity, to Soul, to
each other, to life and freedom.
At least 40 hours of 5Rhythms study with a 5RTA accredited
