We are pleased to invite you to 5Rhythms online workshop MY BODY, MY TEMPLE with OLIVIA OLLA PALMER /IT/
"This is where we must begin and this is the fundamental thing. Your body is the earthly metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence. Your bible, your encyclopedia, the story of your life. What happened to you is stored in your body. Your body knows, your body speaks. " Gabrielle Roth
It seems like the whole western world is suffering from an information overload…. We are constantly switching among channels on the tv, pages on fb, instagram, email, whatsapp, messenger, our inner to do list… And the hopping with our attention from one thing to the next has become a habit that we are bringing into our relationships.
“of course we can’t stop the world, unplug all our modems and devices, and go back to candlelight and horse drawn buggies. We have to accept the speed and rhythm of our times and yet realise that the more potential we have to be distracted, the more urgently we need to be grounded. The more sophisticated we’ve become, the more mental stimulations we’ve required the more disconnected we’ve become from our bodies and the earth.
Our bodies, however are the root of our true selves, the home of our souls.
Our desire to constantly change and control our bodies indicates a deep distrust of our souls. We try the latest diets, the latest treatments, desperate to hold back the tides of change, to fix our bodies externally.
But denying our bodies natural processes we deny their earthy, sensual source of wisdom.
A spontaneous, instinctive wisdom that illuminates the present moment. Being aware of this wisdom passing through our physical selves keeps us grounded and connected to everything happening around us, in tune with the vibrations of the universe.
In the 5Rhythms practice we consider the physical body as a temple for our soul, that we are not only composed of matter, that we are something more than just atoms.
It is through movement and dance that we can learn a lot from our body: We can learn to listen and understand how much our hips, shoulders, feet, knees, pelvis have to teach us ... We can explore how much pain there is in refusing to move in a certain way for so long.
This practice is all about uncovering long suppressed instincts. It trains you to see with your third eye and listen with your third ear. In testy moments we need a practice, something to fall back on, a pipeline to our inner truth or we will find ourselves helpless, surrendering to our ego, not our guts.
The 5Rhythms are liberating for anyone, we do not learn steps and choreography. No matter what age, body shape, ethnic roots, religion or ability to move, the 5Rhythms is a practice guides us deeper into physical, emotional and intellectual awareness.
