5Rhythms® Waves Series
In this Daylong workshop series, we will integrate the moving meditations of the 5Rhythms® with the stillness of mindfulness meditation. In the practice of the 5Rhythms®, we engage in mindfulness while in motion. In seated practice, we have the opportunity to observe the mind and body at rest through silent introspection. The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together, mirror the dance of life and assist in cultivating peace, well being and balance. This is an opportunity to join us for an individual session or as an integrated series. This Waves series will cultivate the space for an advanced dive into the 5Rhythms® philosophy and practice. Homeland, the final piece of this series offers an exploration into our essential rhythm which is where our deepest power resides, awaiting our embrace.

are a series of maps that demonstrate how energy moves.
In five parts, it shows us the patterns, rhythms, and cycles of life.
Flowing connects us to our yin nature. Staccato connects us to our yang.
Chaos unifies and integrates these two energies. As a result, we find transformation in Lyrical.
From this space of change, we are delivered into the rhythm of Stillness. The nature of the stillness dance invites connection and integration.
The study of polarity has the ability to bring great insight. Light and shadow work identifies how to transform stuck energies. In Flowing, we meet our inertia and transform it into the power of fluid momentum. In Staccato, we transform control and tension into release and action. In
Chaos, we face confusion and uncertainty practicing our ability to let go and surrender. In Lyrical, we work with changing distraction into focus and in Stillness, we meet numbness and transform it into connection.
If we do not embrace these energies with full awareness, they often act to sabotage rather than empower us. By embracing the light and shadow of each rhythm, one can better navigate the inner and outer terrain of emotional and energetic states. This is a practice that views all states as pure creative energy. We approach and investigate with an attitude of non-duality, non judgment and kindness. No matter how many times you have danced the shadows, each investigation will reveal new layers and relationships. This day long will deepen your understanding while loosening the shadows power over you so that you may find more ease,
grace and freedom in all that you do.

5Rhythms®: Flowing, Form & Freedom
May 13, 2023
In times of great change many of us search for a sense of freedom. It is crucial to have a practice that assists us in navigating the inner and outer terrain of life. The 5Rhythms offer us just this; a map to understanding the process of energy in motion.
We will dance, asking questions and listening to the body's answers. How can we create fluidity? How does fluidity awaken freedom? If we can find freedom in the body, then it is possible to find it in the heart and mind.
In the heart of Flowing we connect to the yin nature within. Here, we search to open our intuitive selves. We bring life to the feet, unlocking the door to our weight and power.
The dance floor becomes the mirror, reflecting where we are and where we wish to be. Through using the power of our Flow, we can foster connection to own inner wisdom and authenticity.
5Rhythms®: Staccato, Strength & Vulnerability
June 24, 2023
In Gabrielle Roth’s own words, “We are the strongest, when we are the most vulnerable.” Join us as we dance into the power of our individual Staccato nature. It is this powerful space that allows us to touch into the strength of our inner vulnerability.
At certain points in time, life requires us to connect to an inner sense of clarity and direction. It is this force that delivers our message and gifts to the world.
This dance is an investigation into the sacred questions that inform our agility to move through life. How well can you execute your dreams and follow through with your commitments? Are you able to draw boundaries with not only force but with love?
Staccato ignites the fire of passion of truth within. We will dance into the yang energy of the body to reinforce the connection to our inner passion, drive and direction. Staccato represents both the strength and vulnerability of the heart and hips. It is here that we excavate the stories of the past into the creativity of the present. From this place we cultivate an environment of healing, joy and peacefulness.
5Rhythms®: Chaos, Serenity & Surrender
July 29, 2023
The Rhythm of Chaos invites us to surrender and cultivate serenity. We are a part of something larger then our individual self. Here we break through isolation and into the realm of the greater life network that we are a part of. Surrendering is not giving up, it is giving in.
Life requires us to face the chaos of the times we are in. We do not have a choice as to when and how chaos arrives. It’s nature is one that life brings us regardless of our preference. Learning how to dance with the chaos rather then resist in confusion, allows us to minimize our suffering and dance into acceptance of what is.
How do you navigate chaos in your own life? Are you able to let go, when the truth of the moment breaks us apart? Harnessing the power of chaos invites us into the very element that empowers our greatest strength and allows us to transform our deepest wounds into our greatest strengths.
We will dance with the union of the yin and yang forces within. Releasing the power of the mind into the body brings the medicine of embodiment to one's whole being. It is here that we are able to unleash our creative forces into the majesty of the unknown. Letting go is a sacred task. It asks us to first recognize what we are gripping most tightly and then dance its opposite.
We invite you to join us as we dance into the magic and spirit of this divine energy. In familiarizing yourself with this realm you will become more agile in navigating this space as it arises, passes away and ultimately serves us.
5Rhythms®: Lyrical & Stillness, Transition & Transformation
September 9, 2023
The Rhythm of Lyrical invites us to be mindful of the transitions that lead to transformation. It is here that we track the impermanence of life as we grow and change. The state of being in Lyrical is a result of the Chaos dance. Resting in the aftermath of the chaos, we align with the truth of transitions of life. We are here for a short time.
Life demands of us to be present with all that is. The rhythm of Stillness invites us into the mindfulness of integration and emptiness. As a result, we rest in what has been transformed. Through this healing map, one may cultivate an intimate relationship to the divine mystery of all things. Stillness is the space where all rhythms dissolve into one.
We will dance through the Lyrical and Stillness states of being. We will ask questions and let the body reveal the answers. How are you with the nature of change? Are you able to let go in acceptance of all you are shifting into? Are you able to allow for the space you need to integrate these changes?
This is an invitation to explore the spirit of these states and be empowered by their essence. Join us as we dive into the depths of what life asks us to be with.
November 4, 2023
Gabrielle Roth’s map of The 5Rhythms offers us a guide to how energy moves. Through the investigation of these states we come to recognize our strengths and where we need strengthening.
We will track the conditioning of our cultures and family systems. By peeling away the layers of these conditionings, one can excavate the truth of inner power.
This is an invitation to join us in an exploration of our essential self that rests in the deepest recesses of the soul. By identifying our essential rhythm we can tap into our greatest strength and power. It is in this place that we touch into our true nature. Once found, we can begin to apply this power to our relationship to self, partners and tribal circles. The application of this power also reinforces our professional workplaces so that we can find the fulfillment and meaning in all that we do.
15 hours of 5Rhythms Waves is required for this workshop. A clear understanding and embodiment of the 5Rhythms is crucial to this advanced investigation of Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms map. This program is being offered for practitioners who care to take a deep dive into self exploration and empowerment.

Meaghan Williams aka Tiggrr Fearless has been dancing this 5Rhythms path since 2002, where she found the refuge of the dancefloor in the middle of NYC. Shortly after her christening in those waves of the urban wilds, she met Gabrielle Roth, and became her student and a ritual theater performer under her direction for almost a decade. Since those days in NYC, Meaghan has migrated to the west coast and become a devoted steward of the earth. She dances intimately with the elements, allowing wild nature to inform the elemental aspects of her being. She is currently a Permaculture landscape artist in the north bay, and is passionate about healing our relationship to both the earth and our own bodies through conscious movement. As a teacher, she brings 12 years of 5Rhythms teaching experience, a feral wisdom, a lyrical playfulness, and a lifelong passion for poetry, underground dance culture, performance art, music and theater to the dancefloor. She teaches Fearless waves, an invitation into the wilds of your own elemental being, its primal creative power, its subtleties, its spontaneity. She is devoted to creating sanctuary for us to cultivate authentic and brave dances together, to feel into our edges and express beyond our wildest imaginings of how we could be in our own embodiment. What we have the capacity to create and release together in embodied community, is a product of our ability to feel safe enough to bare our vulnerable truths on the dancefloor. Meaghan is currently on a training course in Process-Oriented Facilitation, a trauma-sensitive facilitation modality. Understanding that the body contains our challenges, traumas, and ecstasies, Meaghan strives to create a conscious container which is both courageous and inclusive of all. Let’s dance!
