July 23rd - 25th
With Jonathan Horan

“The Way is not in the sky
The Way is in the heart.”
- Buddha

Let’s take the time to stop the world and pay attention to our hearts. Our attention is like a spotlight. Feelings live in our body parts, and when we shine the light of our attention on specific body parts, memories crack open and move, dissolving the hard hold they have on us. Shapeshifting through feelings as they come up will open us up to their messages, their symbols and their signals.

One of the single-most powerful acts we can do is to share our vulnerability. The more we open up and dance through our feelings, the safer the environment becomes to explore our edges. These dances will be our offering to the bigger world. They will be our prayers for peace.

This will be my focus not only in this workshop but also for my entire residency.  

The wilderness of our hearts scares us. We haven’t been taught to track our feelings, much less respect them. In fact, we often feel ashamed of them when they do pop up. Even in our own families we hold back, dismiss and deny true responses. Even in the dark of the movie theater we swallow our tears. This is very sad. We’ve lost our spontaneity. Why do we give fear so much power?

To befriend our emotions, to not be frozen by fear, is our destiny on this dancing path. Fear is the clearest meter of our edge, the edge where we feel comfortable and grounded. When we start to feel uncomfortable, it’s a challenge. A challenge is an invitation to move from who we are into who we are becoming. The bigger the fear, the more important it is for us to face it. It’s not just a stoplight, it’s a huge road sign: COME DANCE WITH ME.

July 28th - August 1st
With Jonathan Horan

In this workshop, rooted in Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms movement practice, we use our dance like archeologists to dig beneath the surface, to seek buried treasures and pearls of wisdom gleaned from our own life experience. The 5Rhythms offer us both a map to understanding and a way to deeply embody the patterns, waves, and vibrations that organically move us from birth to death.

Our journey will be a deep investigation into our
personal relationship to the rhythms and rituals, the teachings and traditions, the people and places that have formed and informed who we are. Every session will be a deeper dance into the parts of us we wish to celebrate and honor, as well as those parts we wish to let go.

Moving with a diverse group of people enriches our way. The work of Cycles focuses us on our common ground, providing us with an innovative, creative prism through which to view our journey.

Please bring a journal, some family photos, and an object of deep meaning to you.

Jonathan Horan
Jonathan is Gabrielle Roth’s son and closest collaborator.
He has been immersed in the 5Rhythms® throughout his life and continues to be a key catalyst in its evolution.

From the mountains and oceans of Big Sur to the skyscrapers and theatres of NYC, I grew up in extremes and learned a deep respect for the wilderness that is both nature and human nature. When I was nine, I participated in my first 5Rhythms workshop — my grandfather was dying, my mom was very fragile and I was worried about her so I hung around. I fell in love with the work, the rhythms, the people, the freedom and the discipline. By seventeen, I had dropped in fully and I have done almost every workshop Gabrielle has taught in the last twenty-five years. I followed in her dancing footsteps as student and teacher and am committed to keeping the fire of her core teachings alive.
