Dancing through Gateways with Bettina Rothe

April 12-14, 2024

Opening body, heart and mind to states of trance

A 5Rhythms® Movement & Embodiment Workshop with Bettina Rothe

My friends, I'm sorry but this wonderful workshop has sold out!

Contact me if you'd like to be on a wait list.

"Ecstasy is an egoless, timeless state of being. It’s a state of total alignment and unity. Unity of body, heart, mind, soul, and spirit. It is what we need to heal our psychic dismemberment.”

— Gabrielle Roth

Our brains are hardwired for trance. Many of our ancestors have accessed states of trance as a way of asking for inspiration, guidance or healing. It can bring ecstatic awareness and experiences that extend beyond the physical senses and the cognitive mind. The gates to our inner knowing and intuitive mind can open. Deep healing can occur in altered states of consciousness.

In our culture today many of us are experiencing a lack of ecstasy that we might try to fill with other means. The dancing path is an on-going journey from inertia to surrender and ecstatic trance through the vessel of our bodies. To be in a state of embodied ecstasy means to be fully alive.

In this workshop we will move within the 5Rhythms® maps to anchor into our bodies and explore the gateways of our physicality as well as our energetic centres. The 5Rhythms® practice will be the blueprint with which we will safely enter non-ordinary states of consciousness through movement, breath and rhythm. 

Breath practices, embodiment tools and ritual will support the “Medicine Dance” in which we will intent to move for personal, collective or ancestral healing. 

We will integrate our experiences through heart centred sharing and compassionate witnessing. 

No previous experience is required. Every body is welcome.

There are so few opportunities, especially in an urban context, to move with freedom in a wordless, safe container, to be able to feel and sense this complete non-judgemental, supportive and connected community.

Music/rhythm provides the juice, the motivation and energy, and dance becomes a meditation of movement. It's this authenticity of self-expression that I simply can't find anywhere else.

I left the workshop with more openness after so much release, more alive, aligned and attuned with the universe, grounded, clear, lighter, and grateful!”
