Threshold – A 5Rhythms Retreat with Bettina Rothe & Joanne Winstanley


A threshold is a place of potential: a delineation between one set of conditions and another.  

A cusp, or an edge that we may not have approached before now. A place to gather resources before stepping beyond what we already know.

As we move through time, each moment or season may require something different from us. Over the course of a human life – even when we are resting in a time of stability – life is poised to offer surprises.  And as citizens of a changing world, we may find ourselves being called to ‘step up,’ change course, learn new skills and perspectives, or take creative action that we haven’t taken before now.

In this year’s retreat we’ll use the 5Rhythms® embodiment practice, meditation, and ritual to investigate this place of potential. We’ll explore where we may be ready to step beyond our own edges and we’ll practice moving from awareness into action. Supported by the land and accompanied by a committed group of dancers, we’ll take time to gather the resources we need to step fully into the fall.

The 5Rhythms®  are an exhilarating and liberating approach to the exploration of improvised movement that is authentic, inspired and catalytic. It is a workout for body and soul, a moving meditation, a spiritual practice designed to release the dancer that lives in every body, regardless of age, experience or condition.

We invite you to join us for this exploration and time to rejuvenate.

Previous 5Rhythms® experience is recommended, but not required.
If you are collecting hours for the 5Rhythms® teacher path, this retreat counts for
1 day of Heartbeat and 2.5 days of Waves practice.
