From their web:
“We are a dynamic and diverse tribe, meeting in sacred space to express ourselves within the creative pulse, urban edge and rooted soul of Manhattan.
We gather to “Sweat our Prayers” and ride through the “High Vibration Waves”. We move to shed our skins and explore “feet first” the practice of The 5Rhythms®.”
“5Rhythms is a movement meditation practice devised by Gabrielle Roth in the 1960s. It draws from many indigenous and world traditions using tenets of shamanistic, ecstatic, mystical and eastern philosophy. It also draws from Gestalt, the human potential movement and transpersonal psychology. Fundamental to the practice is the idea that everything is energy, and moves in waves, patterns and rhythms. Roth describes the practice as a soul journey, and says that by moving the body, releasing the heart, and freeing the mind, one can connect to the essence of the soul, the source of inspiration in which an individual has unlimited possibility and potential.
