  • I had never danced 5Rhythms before. What I got was soul-shaking,
    Heart-opening, and life changing.
    — Kelly
  • I went in hoping for an easy week and left having gained a practice for a lifetime.

Lucia's unique perspective has been published in “Dancing With Dharma: Essays on Movement And Dance In Western Buddhism” edited by Harrison Blum, Published by McFarland & Company.

'Meditative stillness and movement inform each other, and are cathartic in combination. Becoming skillful in both of these realms helps us step away from dukkha (suffering) and into nibbana (peace).'
