Event description
A sunset session of 5 Rhythms dance and meditation outdoors held at a stunning water-front location overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.

About this Event

We will gather on the night of the full moon for a “sunset session’ on the shore of stunning Chrissy Fields.

The session will involve both conscious dance (delivered through silent disco headsets), and mindfulness, supporting us to become fully present in this stunning setting, relaxing the body, refreshing the mind.

We will gather together and begin our journey with dance to settle into our bodies and explore our spectacular surroundings.  The dance will be gently guided through silent disco headsets. There are no steps to learn and nothing to “get right”- we use the movement as form of mindfulness practice –dropping us deeper in to our own experience. We will move through a musical journey and emerge together into a place of stillness.  

From this place of quiet, we'll sit together, taking in the land and sea and the richness of our interior space.  We'll depart vibrantly awake from our intimate dance with the remarkable, natural gifts of our beautiful bay.

Co-led by Tess Howell and Nina Horne. Biographies below.

Please dress warmly with lots of layers and shoes suitable for moving on an uneven surface- it’s stunning spot and there can sometimes be a brisk breeze blowing and we want to be comfortable to enjoy the wonderful scenery whilst we are outdoors. Please bring a water bottle, blanket and something to sit on.

Nina Horne is a meditation in nature teacher with a twenty-five year practice of meditation and somatic mindfulness experience, and has spent more than 3 months in silent retreat. Originally seeking out yoga and meditation as a tool for managing panic attacks, Nina experienced the transformative power of calming the mind to calm the body.  This turning point led to her studying and receiving training in a wide range of trauma-informed somatic healing practices, including somatic experiencing, EMDR, reiki, energy work, sound healing, guided imagery, yoga, massage therapy, shamanic journeying and conscious dance. Known for her deeply grounded presence and heart-based teaching style, Nina volunteers as a reiki healer for underserved women living with end-stage cancer in Oakland.

Tess Howell is a 5 Rhythms teacher, Spirit Rock trained Dharma- Yoga teacher, writer, coach and accomplished dance producer. She has been meditating for 25 years and dancing for 18 years. She regularly leads Wild Moves outdoor dance events where people gather together to dance outside in areas of outstanding natural beauty such as down on the sea shore, or out in the redwoods. Tess also runs a dance based contemporary rites of passage programme which explores how creativity, community and connection can make our lives more meaningful. Tess relishes and cherishes space, sky, sea and stillness. She finds refuge in dance, the dharma, bunnies, badass basslines and beautiful boots. Tess leads these events with warmth, vitality, humour and depth; skilfully using the dance to guide us back towards what matters most in life.

We warmly welcome you to join us.
