Dear dancers, I hope you are truly well as we leave the full-moon gateway to July 2020.
I'm writing to invite you to join the wildly skilled, experienced and magical Joanne Winstanley
(of Victoria) 
and me, for a one-day workshop 
of movement medicine, 

under the sky, together, with our feet on earth.

No experience in 5Rhythms, any other school of movement or meditation needed.

I also want to let you know that we have 3 more Thursday evening outdoor classes, ending July 23.
In August I will continue my work to secure a venue for safe autumn dancing, in the  case that we are able to return to sharing an indoor dance floor. Time will tell. 

In the meantime, please take sweet care of yourself. Go easy inward, go easy outward.

With love,


Saturday July 18, 11 am - 5:30 pm
Providence Farm Grounds, Duncan, BC

This year has bumped us out of our familiar life ways. We’ve been cut loose from familiar rhythms, meaningful activities, and basic contact with others. For many, livelihoods have vanished, and the wellbeing of our loved ones and society is precarious. We may feel closer to our vulnerability, immersed in the unknown.
Meanwhile, wider cultural conversations are calling us to grow beyond habitual biases and perceptions. The communities that orient us and help us navigate change are gathering online, if at all. We may be feeling stretched in many directions, adjusting daily to new information, possibilities, and perspectives. We may be feeling disoriented or alienated.
We may be feeling a lot.
So, we do what we must do to make it through. Sometimes we have time and means to feel and respond to events as they come. Sometimes, especially when change is fast, intensity is high, or we don’t have access to our ways to express and integrate, we may accumulate a backlog of experience.
Where does it go? It goes into the flesh.

We invite you to join us for a homecoming our body and senses. Supported by 5Rhythms practice, we'll nourish what’s hungry,
loosen what’s dammed,
cleanse what’s dulled,
and self-liberate with gentleness.
We will breathe, feel, and move in the flesh.


Cost: $105 before July 11th | $125 after*

About the teachers:
Since 2001, Joanne Winstanley has held a steady space for the growth and evolution of Victoria’s robust dance community, and has shared her love of this practice with hundreds of students throughout the region. She approaches this work with a deep respect for its alchemical nature, and for the unique discovery process of each participant. 

Chantell Foss has been an advocate for human creativity, liberation, and embodiment in contexts from childcare and fitness training to university teaching, art gallery/museum education, and yoga practice. She's nurtured 5Rhythms community in Duncan since 2014. Stewarding movement process, she prioritizes humility, curiosity, and truth.
The 5Rhythms® is a powerful movement practice which guides participants to re-connect with their own innate body-knowledge, wellness, and wisdom.  Each of the 5Rhythms – Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness – is a distinct field of energy-in-motion, and each one holds its own teachings. Moving through a Wave – all 5Rhythms in sequence – we can explore a range of expression, and welcome the ways that life wants to move through us.


Thursday evening classes on Providence Farm's dance field have been such a sweet reunion and a mysterious new adventure, all at once. 
They're still on, and you can still join:

July 9, 16, and 23, 6:30 - 8:30 pm
