Collective Effervescence: An Exploration of Community Through Movement

How do we learn to live together as a global tribe? As a species? In all of our diversity, our individuality, how do we come together to create a collective constellation of humanity? Of all Earth-dwelling species?

In this half-day 5Rhythms deep dive, we will explore our individual relationships to the collective through movement. How do we expand our senses to take in the whole without losing ourselves? What does clear leadership and clear follow-ship feel like? How do we hold space when one of us shares their vulnerability? How do we step into the center of the group and allow ourselves to be seen? What does it feel like to co-create as a collective? How do we maintain the thread of connection when we go our separate ways?

Collective effervescence is the feeling of communal joy in group activities–at concerts and sporting events, at ceremonies and in the dance. It is a profound sense of interconnection and belonging that is a deep part of our  humanness. You can find out more about dance and collective effervescence in the video below and activate it with us in this workshop!

No experience required–though some basic familiarity with 5Rhythms will be helpful. No dance skills necessary. Good for all levels of physical ability.
