5Rhythms Dance Meditation
Reconnect with your dancing self by attending the weekly 5Rhythmns Dancing Meditation group, hosted by the Grace Cottage Hospital Community Wellness Center in Townshend. This ongoing meditation group meets on Tuesday evenings, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Created by Gabrielle Roth, 5Rhythmns combines five movements common to all humans. There are no steps to follow, no choreography to learn, no way to do it wrong; the practice puts the body in motion in order to still the mind. Anyone of any ability can move to the rhythms. Led by Patricia Burleson, group members will dance to Roth’s music, with lively percussion and a variety of other exotic instruments and voice. Participants may dance barefoot or with clean, soft-soled shoes. The music lasts about 45 minutes and is followed by a few minutes to sit in the quiet. For more information and to sign up, call 802-365-4201, or email [email protected] Walk-ins are welcome. Grace Cottage Hospital’s beautiful, air-conditioned Community Wellness Center is located at 133 Grafton Road, Route 35, in Townshend, Vt.
