Nothing truly dies… all energy simply transforms. We may like to think of our life’s path as being linear but in reality life moves in cycles. So it is with the cycles of our own life.
In the Cycles map, we give ourselves permission to embody this journey with new eyes and understanding. We explore the patterns, waves and vibrations that move us from birth to death – and we attend to sacred tasks and teachings that we may not have marked along the way.
Our journey will be a deep investigation into our personal relationship to the rhythms and rituals, teaching and traditions, the people and places that have formed and informed who we are. From birth into infancy, childhood, adolescence, maturity, elderhood and death, this workshop is an opportunity to update our understandings, to prepare for what's next, and to move with the parts of ourselves and our journey that we wish to honour and explore, as well as those parts we are ready to let go.
"I have always loved the Cycles work… maybe it’s the idea of seeing and embodying things anew. Recently, my 100-year-old mother shared a story with me about an incident that had happened to me 70 years ago, and I realized that for all that time I had labored under a misconception. Similarly, talking with my children about their life experiences often results in a deeper understanding of events and perceptions. Nothing is fixed. This was especially true when I suffered a sudden cardiac arrest during class on Valentine’s Day 2020. My death was unexpected and as I was recovering, it was an incredible invitation to ask myself… what’s next?" Peter F
Coming together to explore the cycles of life gives us the opportunity to see ourselves in each other, to understand and honour our own journey, and to celebrate the thread that connects us all.
"From the moment I stepped into the 5Rhythms, I knew I had been called home to my creative intelligence and embodied wisdom. I came to the practice late in life and immediately fell in love with its accessibility, honesty and integrity. I completed the teacher training with Gabrielle Roth in 2004, Heartbeat in 2010, and Cycles 2022. I am a member of the 5Rhythms teacher training staff and, as a founding member of the 5Rhythms Reach Out (5RRO), I continue to work with elders and differently abled communities." Peter Fodera
