5Rhythms®: Conscious Dance Workshop

Price: € 15 / Reduced € 12 including admission to the exhibition

5Rhythms, a conscious dance method, was developed by Gabrielle Roth at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, in the 1960s. Themes of the summer of love exhibition will inspire the workshop. Via body awareness, flow of breath, creative expression, and surrender in motion, we´ll invite intuitive dance, heart opening, and expansion of consciousness—liberating and drug free. 5Rhythms, Flowing-Staccato-Chaos-Lyrical-Stillness, follow the organic flow of energy to experience essential aspects of energy and expression. After a short introduction into the exhibition, 5Rhythms® teacher Irene Husung will guide body intuition and invite the joy of connection in motion —“people in motion,” to quote the famous song “San Francisco.” “Dance In” welcomes everybody; no prerequisites, just comfortable clothes and barefoot if possible.

In their quest for individual and social change, the hippies discovered meditation. In the meantime meditation has become mainstream. The San Francisco Zen Center was formative, a place where hippies encountered Japanese Zen masters. Zen instructor Bernd Bender, who received training there, gives an introduction to Zen meditation, mindfulness training, and Zen practice within the framework of the exhibition. Please bring comfortable clothes and socks. In the meditation room you will be asked to take off your shoes.
