Elements of the Living Earth

5Rhythms retreat with Peter Fejer in Bran, Romania
25-28 July 2019

Our dance is deeply connected to the life on Earth. Dancing gives us joy, gives us pleasure. It can do so, because it connects us to the fundamental joy and happiness of being alive. Dance roots us into the universal joy of life. On this retreat we’ll get a closer look at our connection to the living Earth. We’ll awaken our senses to see and feel into the core of the fundamental elements: earth, fire, water, air and ether. We’ll explore the ways how they move in us, how they bring us alive, how they support our joy of being.

  • The element of earth gives us support. It’s always there to hold us, it gives stability, it helps us feel trust. Our connection to earth is closely connected to our connection to our own physical body. Dancing with the earth invites us to find again this trusting connection.
  • The element of fire is the element of life force. Our bodies constantly create energy by burning oxygen. We are continuously on fire literally! As we dance with the fire we practice how to receive energy, how to feel our own energy and how to let the energy bring us into action.
  • The element of water invites us to become fluid, ever changing, constantly curious. Dancing with water invites us to connect to our ability to change, evolve, and keep finding our way forward.
  • The element of air shows us the light and playful side of nature. You rarely see it, but it keeps caressing your skin, playing with your hair. Dancing with air, with the wind teaches us about the infinite lightness of our being. Air is constantly singing a song of joy, lifting us from the mundane to the mystery.
  • Ether is the element of the invisible. All the things beyond the physical dimension of our reality. Dancing with the ether invites us to explore the divine in and around us.
