FOUNDATION
A 5Rhythms® Workshop with Erik Iversen
Hebden Bridge December 13-15, 2019

Foundation
A 5Rhythms® Workshop with Erik Iversen
We balance ourselves over our magic feet. They provide us with the only source of contact with the ground while walking. In this workshop we’ll investigate our body’s relationship to our feet and establish a new relationship to gravity – the feeling of having our feet under us. We’ll explore proprioception, sensations and balance. We’ll also experience the liberating energy of conscious breathing.
With the 5Rhythms as a guide, we’ll awaken the deep life force flow of energy. We’ll awaken and balance the intelligence in the heart and the “guts” to increase our movement language and our creativity as a whole being. Moving and dancing, we’ll discover our foundation for playful presence in the moment as well as a new story about being creative and at home in our bodies.
No previous experience is required.

Erik Iversen
I’ve been a 5Rhythms teacher and a practitioner of Hellerwork Structural Integration for over 30 years. I am fortunate to have co-founded the very first 5Rhythms Teacher’s Training in 1988, and I am teaching at the most recent Teacher Training in 2019. Through this span of 30 years, I’ve continued to be committed to playfully awakening the body-mind connection. My
teaching is essentially an invitation and an expression of self–love through dancing, feeling and being. In 2015, I graduated from the 2-Year Transformational Leadership Program at the Hendricks Institute Leadership, and have incorporated the tools and wisdom of those practices into my teaching.

THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE TREES
Four tree-planting events will take place at Winter Solstice across the UK; planting over 2000 trees.

This seed has been planted by The Fellowship of the Trees, in collaboration with Earth Star C.I.C and BrightSky Community… three projects with interlinking visions for a better world.

BrightSky is a new online platform and real-world community for practitioners, changemakers and community-builders. Email welcome@brightsky.community to find out about opportunities to become a Founding Member and help build the movement.

TREEgeneration
BrightSky’s non-profit events have at their core an intention for personal, communal and ecological regeneration.

TreeGeneration events are community events that celebrate the remembrance of nature as our true nature. When we support the earth to heal herself, we heal ourselves. When we heal ourselves, we are the earth healing herself. When we come together to listen to the land and plant trees, we are breathing into the dream of a healthier and more abundant future for our children and all life yet to come.

THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE TREES is a diverse collective of dedicated people from all walks of life with a shared dream. We have been kindly crowdfunded to the tune of £2000 and we are so grateful for all donations!

We will plant each sapling as a blessing to the earth with the medicine of our love and gratitude. We will give thanks to our ancestors and express our hopes and wishes for those yet to come.

Together we will pray for the healing of the Earth, and that we may all live in right relationship with ourselves, each other and our planet. Joining hearts, voices and drums, we’ll send out our prayer like an arrow to the cosmos!

This is the first of many missions, and we are forming connections with different landowners and communities where we can continue this work. We hope our work to plant hundreds will soon grow into hundreds of thousands! We want to inspire others to do the same, across the UK and internationally.
