Chastity Davis Consulting is bringing International 5 Rhythms Dance Teacher, Lucia Horan and two Native American Ceremonial Sisters, Belinda P. Eriacho & Naomi Tsosie to The Raven Institute, for a day to celebrate Indigenous women.
The morning will consist of sacred teachings from our Native American sisters from the Zuni and Navajo Tribes in Arizona/New Mexico. Belinda and Naomi have dedicated their lives to sacred Indigenous ceremony travelling the world for ceremonial purposes with the International Indigenous Grandmother's Council. Belinda and Naomi will walk us through the teachings of the sacred medicine bundle. They will also bring sacred supplies for each paticipant to make a medicine bundle for themselves.
In the afternoon, Lucia will lead us through Gabrielle Roth's 5 Rhythms moving meditation, improvisation dance.

The 5Rhythms is a moving meditation practice, an improvisational form of dance. This is a map of how energy moves. It shows us the patterns, rhythms and cycles of life. Flowing connects us to our feminine nature. Staccato connects us to our masculine nature. Chaos marries and integrates these two energies. As a result we find transformation in Lyrical. From this transformative space we are then connected to Stillness. The nature of the stillness dance invites compassion and connection to self, partners and community.
Each of these rhythms is present within us at all times. We have discovered that every person has a dominant rhythm. This is the primary energy that moves and inspires the unique expression of who are. We investigate these qualities in order to understand ourselves more. In learning about our “home” rhythm, we can look at both the light and shadow aspects to see what moves us and what stops us from moving.
How comfortable are you in your body? Some say, “Home is where the heart is”. If so, then the body we are given is our one true home. Through this method we can learn to love the home we have been given, and appreciate the gift of this body and this life. Find your home rhythm. Learn to know yourself better. Become fascinated with yourself. In doing so you will better serve the world and all those you love.
No experience is required. All workshop hours contribute to 5Rhythms® teachers training prerequisites.
