“Energy moves in waves. Waves move in patterns. Patterns move in rhythms. A human being is just that, energy, waves, patterns, rhythms. Nothing more. Nothing less.”
— Gabrielle Roth, founder of the 5Rhythms®
As a dancer and as a dispute resolution professional, both ‘movement’ and ‘stillness’ play an important role in my work. In the 5Rhythms practice, we use the dance floor to move through things that keep us stuck. We move through the Wave of 5Rhythms to the last rhythm of stillness, where the wisdom of the spirit can be heard over the chatter of the mind. I practice with this same commitment off the dance floor. Using the promise of movement in dispute resolution, difficult conversations can take their own unique transformative course from confusion to connection.
