God, Sex & the Body
with Alex MacKay
August 15th to 18th, 2019
“God, Sex and the Body is and always will be a profound and integral part of the 5Rhythms® curriculum. It has personally informed my way of being, my teaching style, and, most deeply, my acceptance of who I am and who I am not.”
— Gabrielle Roth
In the series of maps that comprise the dancing path of the 5Rhythms®, God, Sex and the Body is an initiation into being an embodied soul. It is a deeply personal journey, a celebration like no other, a ritual for the hot and holy you.
This journey is a call to stretch our imaginations with a long forgotten innocence and move through a spectrum of feminine and masculine archetypes, to dress up these characters in ritual theater, get inside them and give them expression. No one else can be a man or woman exactly like you. No one else can embody your soul, or project your magic or have your specific curiosity. Part lover, part artist, part god, we were born to rock the world and feel our way into each other’s hearts.
Grounded in the 5Rhythms Movement practice, this experience can liberate and inspire us to emerge a bit more fascinated with each other and the mystery of it all.

“Offering these archetypal maps of God, Sex and the Body feels exactly right for me – I can honour Gabrielle Roth’s maps and be myself: delicate and deep, clear and playful, creating a safe space to be daring.
“I want it all – no divide between spirit and flesh, between the masculine and feminine within… the lover to feel desire and find beauty in many moments, the seeker to naturally connect to inspiration and devotion, the artist to design and take care of a life full of these riches.
“I am delighted at the surprise invitation to Vancouver Island this summer, feeling the call of ravens and the full moon, summer grasses and blackberries… such abundance around us as we connect with the archetypal and mysterious realms.”
