Visudha de Los Santos & Chloe Goodwin
Chloe Goodwin is a Certified 5Rhythms Teacher and community maker in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She leads with heart and humor. An explorer of both shadow and light Chloe invites inquiry into the sweet and the sour, the mundane and the magical. With 20 years worth of questing on the dance floor, she brings big faith in movement as a healer, community as a catalyst and creative process as pure medicine.
“We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve
LOST OUR CONNECTION to ourselves.”
In the natural world, everything intrinsically depends on everything else – every plant and animal holds a unique role in the collaborative co-creation of life. How do we remember we are also, intrinsically part of this?
In a culture that holds independence as a prime value – awareness is needed to know we rely on each other. In a society where so many of us feel isolated – courage and vulnerability are needed to create connection. In a system that separates us – practice in unity is needed: how do we lean into each other, be with each other, listen to, see, receive from and give to each other with grace?
In this ten-day immersion, Interdependence will be our teacher, our exploration, our mediation and our medicine. Through movement, art, ritual and community we will seek the embodied wisdom of reciprocity and cooperation. We will dance in the balance of generosity and receptivity, strength and vulnerability, reliance and trust. Together we will expand into the field of possibilities available to us when we are interconnected, co-creative and collaborative.
The further human society drifts away from nature, the less we understand about interdependence. Peter Senge
“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: “When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?” –Gabrielle Roth
Indigenous people from all over the world use imagery of winged horses to signify a relationship with the Divine. These magical creatures allow flight into the unknown, flight into the spirit realms and flight into the Mystery. Forging a relationship with Mystery’s magic – feeling and sharing your energy, your nature and your trust – will take you far away to lands of enchantment, wonder and awe. But most of all, Mystery lets us fly to freedom.
Are you ready to surrender? Are you ready to meet yourself? Are you ready to ride and fly high? Are you ready to be liberated? Are you ready to be free from all that restricts you?
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. –Albert Einstein
