"Wave upon Wave" - special Philadelphia workshop led by leading teacher Kathy Altman
"We live in turbulent times, and many of us struggle to stay steady with the energy that moves through and around us.

We know that everything in life moves in waves: peace, conflict, light, darkness, sound, our thoughts, our bodies. Sometimes we sense these waves moving naturally during lovemaking, childbirth or the creative process. Other times we feel stuck in an old pattern, or overwhelmed by our circumstances and unable to ride all that's happening.

The 5Rhythms (flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness) offer us a way to physically embody these waves. They give us a physical vocabulary to express where we are and to trust wherever we're going. We practice the 5Rhythm Wave over and over to help us ground when we are in chaos, flow when we feel frozen, and surrender to our natural state of being: a fluid body in motion. This weekend will help us learn to surf the waves of this lifeâ€"to stay present and in motion with whatever comes our way."
Kathy Altman.
