7-10 December 2017

with Arjan Bouw

If we follow our first impulse, being spontaneous, life can be pretty unpredictable. Sometimes that's fun, other times it's dangerous. This danger leads us to blocking our own flow of life.

In the dance of the 5Rhythms we find a safe container to allow these impulses to move us again. We train ourselves to shape our basic animal-like instincts into art. The dance helps us to find a place in ourselves from where we can witness what moves in us. Dance is a meditation: making space for impulse to move us without getting attached or pushing them away. When we have danced the dirt of our souls, we can be still and practice listening to some of the more transcendent impulses, which lead us to compassion, patience, devotion and awe. From here we can witness what loves in us.

There are no steps to learn, every dance is complete improvisation. Willingness to move and a minimal level of playfulness is required.

ARJAN has been dancing the 5Rhythms for 18 years and has taught the Waves level of this practice since 2005 and Heartbeat since 2010. His embodied heart is evidence of these teachings. His down to earth humanness creates safe spaces in which the life force can find its way to move through and out onto the dance floor. He lives in the countryside in the Netherlands and teaches internationally. 'Arjan is a wild creative spirit with a huge heart, poetic stillness, and a thousand playful inspirations'.
