I just want to express my Gratitude to my friends and teachers Sacha and Neal and Christina (whom currently is visiting in Europe) for the passion you bring into this practice of dancing and meditating and creating a tribe and a community which I observe with excitement spreading all over New Zealand and further.
5Rhythms has grown to become such an important part of my life and my settling down in this city and country, and given me, like Julie is expressing, a sense of Belonging and a Coming Home with like-minded people. As facilitators you are supporting me and my tribe in this process of coming back into my body over and over again, when I am confused, despairing in lifes chaos, lost or stuck in my head, looking for escape in fantasy etc.
I experience the process of dancing through the 5Rhythms as a returning home into my body and rediscover a lightness and a joy which is just as intrinsicly a part of me, as everything else that takes over when life goes crazy in between. To me it is a Soul-practice, moving me through the natural changes of life which I can not control, into an acceptance of what is. My journey with 5Rhythms has lead me through a process of letting myself fall into chaos over and over again, to a place of surrendering my Self to being danced by something that is beyond the personal.
I finally found a family and community that meets my need to feel fully accepted while I am supported and contained in my search for liberation. Thank you, to all of you who are my teachers and companions.
