Solution focused practice and the 5 rhythms

Posted by on February 21, 2012 in News | 2 comments

“The 5Rhythms comprise a simple movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in every body, no matter what its shape, size, age, limitations and experience. To find your dance is to find yourself, at your most fluid and creative level. While the practice itself is the essence of simplicity, it can catalyse deep healing and creative expression” – Sue Rickards, A Call to Dance.

A first!

A 5 Rhythms dance class was offered as part of the pre-conference activities at the 2011 UK Association of Solution Focused Practice conference in Bath, and a number of conference participants attended. Many thanks to Sue Kuhn for welcoming us to her class and helping us to dance our way into the conference –

We have been having dialogues with an accredited 5 Rhythms teacher about designing a workshop which combines dance and solution-focused brief therapy. Some exciting ideas have emerged so far. This is on hold at the moment but the ideas and plans are bubbling away underneath.

Watch this space!
