5Rhythms® SOULutions Workshop w/Christina

  • Cuarto Creciente 143 Alvarado Ensenada, B.C., 22800 Mexico (map)


A 5Rhythms® Workshop w/Christina in Ensenada, Mexico

As humans we often approach decision making primarily with our mind. Although our mind can be useful, we have many others resources available from an embodied awareness approach. Utilizing the 5Rhythms® map we can explore decision making with our body in flowing, our heart in staccato, our mind in chaos, our soul yearnings in lyrical and come to a full embodied personal truth with spirit in stillness. A goal in this workshop will be to notice which of these is in the driver seat and bring all of our resources into balance, opening ourselves to more options and choices. SOULutions will provide the tools to listen deeply, bearing witness to your personal truth that awakens when we put the body in motion. When the body is grounded the mind can quiet and create space for the heart, soul, and spirit to speak. 

Como seres humanos, a menudo tomamos decisiones principalmente con nuestra mente. Aunque ésta puede ser útil, tenemos muchos otros recursos disponibles a partir de un cuerpo consciente y enraizado. Utilizando el mapa de los 5Rhythms® podemos explorar la toma de decisiones con nuestro cuerpo en el fluido, con nuestro corazón en el staccato, con nuestra mente en el caos, con nuestros anhelos de alma en el lírico y llegamos a una verdad personal y profunda totalmente enlazada con el espíritu en la quietud. Uno de los objetivos en este taller será notar cuál de ellos está en el asiento del conductor y así equilibrar todos nuestros recursos, abriéndonos a más opciones y posibilidades. SOULutions te dará las herramientas para escuchar profundamente, dando testimonio de tu verdad personal la cual se despierta cuando ponemos el cuerpo en movimiento. Cuando el cuerpo está enraizado, la mente puede aquietarse y crear un espacio para que el corazón, el alma y el espíritu hablen. 

This is a retreat style workshop where we have the option to travel and stay together close to the dance venue in Ensenada, Mexico. Travel is simple and easeful, park at Border Station in San Ysidro, walk across the border and take a bus to Ensenada for $10 each way, approximately 1.5 hours. We will have long lunch breaks where we can enjoy the food, culture, and our surroundings.

There are a number of hotels close to the venue, I have some rooms reserved at Hotel Villa Marina, rooms book quickly in Ensenada book early. There will be some spaces available with local dancers and your contribution to lodging makes the workshop possible for them. 

For San Diego and traveling dancers we organize carpool options for travel to the border crossing and go by bus together. Flying into Tijuana is reasonable and you can take a bus directly to Ensenada. 

Ensenada is a beach travel destination for rest, relaxation, surfing and outdoor activities in Mexico located 80 miles from San Diego. The culture is welcoming and loving, boasting fine dining for reasonable prices, surrounded by vineyards and beaches. It is a wonderful place to extend your time before or after the workshop and make it a full vacation.
