“You cannot truly make love if your anger is blocked.” Ida Kelarova – School for Human Voice
Loving is fierce! At least sometimes. To truly love, we have to be willing and able to be passionate, to allow the animal in us breathing space, to be able to say “Yes!” or “No!” with everything we have — body, heart and mind.
The rhythms help us regain our power with anger so we’re not victims to it — either our own or other people’s. To give space for our vulnerability and fears. To embody all these feelings thoroughly, without judgement. To unearth the old buried stuff and let it go. To take responsibility for our feelings and use them creatively. To rediscover anger as the magnificent natural expression of life-force that it can be. And ultimately to go through anger so deeply that it becomes a meditation, a profound dive into the mysterious heart of all things that gives us the inner authority to love, even when the going gets tough, so that tenderness is sweeter and more real than it’s ever been.
Adam has been studying healing and meditation since the early 80s and teaching the rhythms since ’93. “I have faith in us human beings, and am passionately committed to being part of the evolutionary jump we are engaged in. I am dedicated to helping the 5Rhythms unfold their extraordinary potential for awakening, which I believe has barely begun. I’m a rock and roll monk with a love of depth, and a clear, honest, uncompromising teaching style.”
