About this Event

Moving with the mystery- a dance in nature day retreat. Tending to our own transformation.

We will begin with a morning 5 Rhythms dance session out on the land under the stunning shady oak grove ( see event picture) . There are no dance steps to learn and nothing to "get right", just a willingness to dive deeply into the dance and to be with our own experience.

Dance sessions will take place using "silent disco" headsets so that there is no noise pollution to the surrounding environment -with music and gentle guidance delivered through the headsets.

For lunch we will have a delicious farm-to-table shared feast together in the EarthRise restaurant.

In the afternoon we will start with a simple-sharing circle in the shady oak grove; finishing up with another deep-dive outdoor dance session moving with the mystery-within us and around us.

We will let nature nurture us: recharging, refreshing, renewing ourselves with shared time outdoors.

"We have not been raised to cultivate a sense of Mystery. We may even see the unknown as an insult to our competence, a personal failing. Seen this way, the unknown becomes a challenge to action. But Mystery does not require action; Mystery requires our attention. Mystery requires that we listen and become open. When we meet with the unknown in this way, we can be touched by a wisdom that can transform our lives.” - Rachel Naomi Remen

The day is facilitated by accredited 5 Rhythms teacher, moving meditation guide and accomplished dance producer Tess Howell, whom has been running these highly popular events in the UK and world-wide since 2012. Tess leads these events with warmth, vitality, humour and depth; skillfully using the dance to guide us back towards what matters most in life.

About the venue: Earth Rise is a retreat centre with 200 cares of spectacular private land with rolling hills, circling hawks and rooted oaks. It is located in San Antonio, just two minutes off junction 467 North on Highway 101, roughly 40 minutes out of San Francisco. The centre was founded by Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s, one of the Apollo astronauts whom witnessed the earth rise from space and was completely awestruck and wonder-filled by its beauty. On his return to earth he co-founded the retreat centre to create a daily reminder of the life-changing moment when he (and then through those infamous "earth rise in space" photos -all of humanity)— witnessed the majesty of our beautiful blue planet emerging from the darkness. We can’t think of a better place to spend the day moving with the mystery it all.
