5Rhythms Moving Meditation
with Mati Vargas-Gibson in Dallas
Sunday 5RHYTHMS PRACTICE
Join us for our Sacred Dance Meditation and the deep exploration of the 5Rhythms Practice of Mindful and Creative Embodiment, these sessions will be sometimes instructional and sometimes non guided Waves for deepening into your own Body Prayer.
“Energy moves in waves. Waves move in patters. Patterns move in rhythms. A human being is all of those: energy, waves, patters, rhythms. We are the dance”.
5Rhythms® is a moving meditation practice born of deep study and observation; created by artist, theater director, musician, author and extraordinary teacher, Gabrielle Roth, who for more than fifty years has guided thousands of people towards ecstasy through the magic of dance, creative movement, and ritual theater.
As a spiritual and healing practice they are a deep exploration of body, mind, emotions, creativity and soul, helping us us to cultivate awareness and to have a direct experience of union, wholeness, and freedom.
The Five Rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. Together they create a Wave, and these waves are organic, naturally-mapped journeys and structures that guide us towards a profound encounter with our unique, spontaneous movements; with our individual expression and the fluidity of our emotions; to freeing thoughts and mind and rediscovering the magic and enchantment of our originality; and towards silence, peace and wisdom, eternal and always present at the center of our dynamic, moving self.
There are no steps to follow, no choreography to learn, no way to do it wrong. Everyone is welcome, no matter what shape, size, age, limitation or experience. All you need is curiosity and willingness to move deeply and freely.

Meadows Hall in the Sammons Center for the Arts Dallas
Many of you know that the Dallas Youth Orchestra rehearses in the building on Sundays and they need to set up right after our dance. In order to keep our schedule as it is, I will be starting the warmup at 9:45 so we can be ready to exit by NOON exactly.
Feel free to come a bit early to start warming up and be ready to dance by 10.
I ask that we all be mindful of transitioning out of Meadows Hall as quickly as possible, we can then socialize and connect in the lobby. This will make for a smooth transition for everyone and harmonious coexistence with the GDYO!
See you on the dance floor!
