Heart of Gold – a 5Rhythms Heartbeat workshop with Joanne Winstanley
with live music by Zach Sukuweh
March 16 to 18, 2018
We can’t control the circumstances of our birth – or the challenges and gifts Life presents to us – but we can turn towards these gifts and challenges with the intention of doing our own work, meeting Life as it is, and strengthening and purifying our heart.
In this workshop we will engage with the wisdom, subtlety, and vitality of the heart through a process of transmutation: using the 5Rhythms® maps (Waves and Heartbeat) as a container and our instinct as our guide, we will shine light into dusty corners, turn over the rich muck of unexpressed emotion, tend to our tender places, and welcome the glint of buried treasures too.
Together, and with a gentle touch, we will apply ourselves to the work of refining our own raw materials – spinning the straw of apparent misfortune into art, embodiment, and maybe even gold.
Friday March 16 – 6:30 to 9:30pm
Saturday March 17 – 11:00am to 6:00pm
Sunday March 18 – 11:00am to 5:00pm

Since 2001, Joanne Winstanley has held a steady space for the growth and evolution of a robust 5Rhythms community in Victoria BC, and has shared her love of this practice with students throughout the region. She approaches this work with a deep respect for its alchemical nature, and for the unique discovery process of each participant.
The 5Rhythms® is a powerful movement practice that guides participants to re-connect with their own innate body-knowledge, wellness, and wisdom. In the Heartbeat™ map, each of the 5Rhythms becomes a gateway to our essential emotions: Flowing/ Fear, Staccato/ Anger, Chaos/ Sadness, Lyrical/ Joy, and Stillness/ Compassion.
This workshop fulfills 2 1/2 days’ credit as a Heartbeat prerequisite for Cycles and other advanced 5Rhythms workshops.
