Rhythms & Stories Of Our Lives, 5Rhythms® & Motion Theater®

With Davida Taurek

Movement is medicine. — Gabrielle Roth

Experience the freedom and transformative power of self-expression through the catalytic practices of the 5Rhythms and Motion Theater. Motion Theater, a form of improvised autobiographical storytelling grounded in a lively physicality, simultaneously functions as performance art, healing method, and spiritual practice. The 5Rhythms is a dynamic moving meditation practice that invites us to embody our psyche and awaken our soul.

Together we will dance, vocalize, share our stories, and play simple theater games that ignite the creative collective spirit. The skills and tools you will learn will inform your daily life, bringing acceptance, grace, and play wherever you need it.

No experience is required. All workshop hours contribute to 5Rhythms® teachers training prerequisites.
