5Rhythms® Movement Meditation
The 5Rhythms® is a free-form movement meditation practice, founded by Gabrielle Roth in the 1960’s. During this weeklong adventure we will introduce the map of 5Rhythms®, as we explore our own innate connection to nature. Through this practice we will seek to expand the vocabulary of the body. As we share in this kinesthetic language we can deepen the connection between the human pod and dolphin pod. Through the element of the water, we seek to bring joy, healing and liberation into every cell of our being.
Each day on both land and sea we investigate the 5Rhythms®, explore the surrounding reefs, and connect with the Coastal Bottlenose and the Atlantic Spotted dolphins in their wild and natural habitat.
This is a once in a lifetime invitation to explore the 5Rhythms®, in an incredible and mystical environment. No previous experience is necessary for this adventure. Our pod leaders will be guiding the 5Rhythms® practice, teaching free-diving and snorkeling in a safe and nurturing environment.
What we learned from our recent encounters is that our greatest power is revealed when we became receptive, authentic, and present with true intention. We honor the ‘RARE’ experience – Relax, Allow, Receive & Experience.
The dolphins teach us patience, presence, and an ability to receive a unique invitation to their message of community, kindness and compassion.
We invite you to come aboard for the journey. Each day we will be going out on the boat to connect with the dolphins and there’s always space for the unexpected! We also love to spend time visiting the many coral reefs and famous Road to Atlantis.
Of course, everything is optional – participate if it feels right for you or you may simply prefer to relax on the beach. No previous experience is required for this adventure. We love to welcome children and families. Vegetarian and Vegan options are available!
Wildquest also offers amazing Wellness experiences with many Massage, Reiki, Craniosacral and body healing opportunities! For further exploration there are complementary kayak & bicycle usage – you have to experience the tandem bike & Douglas’s infamous night rides around the island!
In 2009 Lucia worked for five months on the WildQuest team. “It was one of the most profound and wonderful experiences of my life,” she says. “It set into motion the annual gathering of the 5Rhythms®: Human Dolphin connection workshop”.
As a part of the 5Rhythms® family, Lucia brings to her teaching a lifetime of practice. Lucia’s experience with the 5Rhythms® has offered her a way to navigate through the fabric of life’s experiences. In this workshop, she comes to the dance floor with her partner Douglas, to share with you her love for the dolphins, the dance and her deep faith in this practice.
