Can U? A 5 Rhythms Heartbeat Weekend with Kate Shela in San Diego

CAN U show up in your body ~ Inhabit your own skin?

CAN U show up with your emotions ~ Illustrate your own heart?

CAN U show up with your thoughts ~ Demonstrate your own mind?

CAN U witness yourself and others ~ Occupy your own soul?

CAN U hold the empty space ~ Welcome in Spirit?

 

Kate Shela will guide you on a deep dive below the surface of your habitual day to day behavior into the rich, fertile soil that lies beneath. Moving through the landscapes of the 5Rhythms Waves and Heartbeat map, we will dance to retrieve the unknown shapes, places and territories of our own being and tether ourselves to the heart of our matter.

In CAN U? we will experience what it is to embody ourselves fully and know that our emotions: Fear, Anger, Sadness, Joy and Compassion are vital life essence, required for us to be whole human beings, living and breathing with a spontaneous capacity to be present in every moment.

5 Rhythms – Awaken the Ecstatic Body

The 5 Rhythms map is an exquisite tool to support us in feeling more not only in the dance, but in all aspects of life.

Together we will explore how the dance invites us to awaken the subtle body through breath and movement. As we slow down and notice the transitions, the pause and surrender between each rhythm we also attune ourselves to the natural flow of our physical and sensational body.

Noticing how we transition and integrate thru the dance builds new body awareness and memory to support us in navigating an often insensitive world with increased sensitivity rooted in presence so we may feel and experience more of the magic of the physical world around.

Come join us for a special day of learning from our body wisdom and from each other.

September 25 11 – 4:30 Cost $80 (Early Bird discount $60 by Aug 11)

5 Rhythms® – Return to Center in Tallinn, Estonia

What is my relationship to myself? How does this change when I am on my own? With one other? In a group?
The one constant in all our relationships is the self… but how we show up, where we open or close, feel comfort or discomfort is an ever changing pattern.
We are all yearning to connect. To see and be seen, on our own, with others and in tribe. It is vital that we cultivate awareness of where we are giving the most energy, receiving the most energy. Notice where we find ourselves and lose ourselves
We will investigate our relationships to self, other and group. The 5 Rhythms Movement Meditation practice will be our foundation for this exploration. The body does not lie and as such is a most profound teacher, particularly when we are seeking to discover stories of self.
On this dancing path we have in the 5 Rhythms a tool which invites us to without judgment discover the raw truth under our stories. Where am I showing most authentic? What is my relationship to leading? To Following? Where do I feel at ease in a group and where do I feel confused or lost? When I am alone do I rest in the solitude or check out and disappear?
This is a journey of self-love. So Come, say yes, answer the call to see and be seen.
After this investigation we will release into a big double wave of Ecstasy!

Coming Home in Helsinki: A Heart Opening Journey of 5 Rhythms® and Tribal Tantra

The War is Over. The time for protecting, defending…hiding this heart, your heart, has passed. There is a new calling… A calling to a new service: the service of love. The old armor, the sword and shield are no longer required. This is a calling to remember…and return to you…

Here begins the journey home. Step by step, unpeeling the layers, releasing the armor of false security and revealing the vibrant, living, breathing heart underneath…at last to revel in the freedom of spaciousness, as your unbound true and higher self is given permission to see, be seen and soar.

We arrive into our bodies, supported by the 5 Rhythms Map. From this rooted place, the ways of Tribal Tantra will invite us to soften our defenses and allow our Anahata, Fourth or Heart Chakra to open.

As individuals, in partnership and with tribe, we will undertake a transformational journey of dance, art and ceremony born from the spirit of shamanic journey work, heart centered tantric ceremony and the body presence of moving meditation and dance.

You are invited to this Sacred Gathering June 5-7 at Eskus Performing Center in Helsinki, Finland. All sessions and course materials included. Investment in Self: €195 (€165 if paid in full by Msy 15). *Friday Night Only €35

WHAT IS TRIBAL TANTRA?

Tribal Tantra is a practice of dance, ceremony, ritual, seeing and being seen which is born from and returns to our heart center. From this center there are four “ways” which we explore to learn the subtle nature of how we invite duality into our lives which veils us from the awakening to our true and authentic self.

The Four ways are: Surrender, Connection, Wholeness and Seeing.

The School of Tribal Tantra offers a full curriculum to support each individual seeker to discover, embody and share their unique gifts with the world through transformational workshops to Teacher Trainings for those called to the Movement Meditation or Tantric Paths.

The first US Level I Trainings for Movement Facilitators and Tantric Guides will be offered in April/May 2015. For more information or to be on the waiting list, email eugene@sheddingskins.com

5 Rhythms in San Diego – 5 Keys to Embodied Wholeness –

You are invited to a rare and special opportunity for in-depth exploration of the 5 Rhythms® Movement Meditation Practice in San Diego.

There is magic in expressing ourselves through the dance, however our body temple is also a source of limitless wisdom, once we have cultivated the skills of listening.

We will use the simple but profound 5 Rhythms Movement Meditation map to tune into this language and ultimately begin to attune ourselves toward its subtle frequency, so that we may begin access the greater intelligence of the body, which is literally our birthright.

Through this practice we learn language of expressing and being expressed through our body/heart/mind/spirit – individually, clearly, but without having to separate.

The Rhythms show us our starting place on this journey. The body cannot lie. It has no ego to satisfy or satiate. In the dance we can unlock that innate body wisdom. From within the body temple we can find the personal answers to our deepest questions and secret longings.

The dance will teach us our relationship to attention and awareness, self-expression, control versus surrender, moving with ease and presence with our self. As we embody our resistance with the same attention with which we welcome our ease, we also fashion the tools to truly live embodied and whole.

Come discover how the gentle yet clear guidance provided by the 5 Rhythms will unlock pathways both seen and unseen to greater understanding, discovery, empathy for and ultimately expression of your authentic self.

Coming Home in San Diego: A Heart Opening Journey of Sacred Tandava Dance and Tribal Tantra

The world around us is changing at an every swifter pace. Old paradigms are shifting before our eyes. While it may seem there is a great war going on between the new and old, many of us know, or have at least sensed that what really lies before us is a new age…

The change has already happened, we are simply surrendering to this new evolution at differing paces. What we witness in the world outside is less a struggle for outcome than the holding on to the old ways for fear of the unknown.

The truth is, there is no war. The War is Over. The time for protecting, defending…hiding this heart, your heart, has passed. There is a new calling… A calling to a new service: the service of love. The old armor, the sword and shield are no longer required. This is a calling to remember…and return to you…

Here begins the journey home. Step by step, unpeeling the layers, releasing the armor of false security and revealing the vibrant, living, breathing heart underneath…at last to revel in the freedom of spaciousness, as your unbound true and higher self is given permission to see, be seen and soar.

This calling is to set aside the armor and step into the vital vulnerability. Stand tall with an open heart and shine as the beacon of light inviting others to find and fall in love with themselves in your heart’s reflection.

We arrive Friday night into our bodies, supported by the Elemental and Sacred Tandava dance. From this rooted and lifted place, the ways of Tribal Tantra will invite us to soften our defenses and allow our Anahata, Fourth or Heart Chakra to open.

This path is not easy, but the rewards are beyond measure. Mercifully, we are not alone and our tools are many.

As individuals, in partnership and with tribe, we will undertake a transformational journey of dance, art and ceremony born from the spirit of shamanic journey work, heart centered tantric ceremony and the body presence of moving meditation and dance.

You are invited to this Sacred Gathering February 20:

Malashock Dance Studio in San Diego, CA.

All sessions and course materials included.
Friday Night Only $35

Accept the call. The time is now. Welcome home. ~ Eugene

The One True Love, a 5 Rhythms® Event in Phoenix, AZ with Eugene Hedlund

So often we are seeking The One True Love all around, in items or jobs, persons or passions, on the Earth or in the Heavens, when in fact the one place it resides is the only place it could ever be: Inside Yourself.

The 5 Rhythms Map gives us the tools to explore and discover our patterns and relationship to connections within and without in order to reveal what is serving and what gets in the way. Through Flowing we learn our relationship to our body and listening to the wisdom within. In Staccato we learn our relationship to expressing our feelings, our truth in clarity. Chaos reveals our relationship to the mind, thoughts and where we go when the background noise increases…do we root down or get lost? Through Lyrical we learn how to move into ease and grace, presently, without spacing-out. And at last in Stillness we uncover our true relationship to self…when all is quiet, am I still here? Am I still curious? Do I love myself enough to still be fascinated when it is just my body, my breath, my heartbeat, my thoughts or do I check out, numb out until a more interesting stimulation comes along?

The 5Rhythms show us our starting place on this journey. The body cannot lie. It has no ego to satisfy or satiate. In the dance we can unlock that innate body wisdom. From within the body temple we can find our personal answers and from this place we can each examine what is serving our higher purpose and what is not…where we are fully embodied in love of self and where wounds or limiting beliefs are ready to be shed in order to make more space for this most vital of relationships to flourish.

This commitment to self is based on an open heart and a willingness to show up and look at all that is and that has been, so we may step with clarity into all that can be.

Come, accept the call to discover your own medicine and write your own prescription with which to fall a little more in love with yourself.
