GOD, SEX AND THE BODY
Rome, 25 - 28 April 2019
5Rhythms workshop with Alex Mackay
A Gabrielle Roth 5Rhythms® G.S.B. Workshop is the empowering of the masculine and feminine archetypes that permits us to reach our full potential as men and women. Here we learn the Maps of the soul.
Alex is the first teacher after Gabrielle Roth and Jonathan Horan to offer this 5Rhythms archetypal map.
"God, Sex and the Body is and always will be a profound and integral part of the 5Rhythms® curriculum. It has personally informed my way of being, my teaching style, and, most deeply, my acceptance of who I am and who I am not."
In the series of maps that comprise the dancing path of the 5Rhythms®, God, Sex and the Body is an initiation into being an embodied soul. It is a deeply personal journey, a celebration like no other, a ritual for the hot and holy you.
This journey is a call to stretch our imaginations with a long forgotten innocence and move through a spectrum of feminine and masculine archetypes, to dress up these characters in a ritual theatre, get inside them and give them expression. No one else can be a man or woman exactly like you. No one else can embody your soul, or project your magic or have your specific curiosity. Part lover, part artist, part god, we were born to rock the world and feel our way into each other’s hearts.
Grounded in the 5Rhythms Movement practice, this experience can liberate and inspire us to emerge a bit more fascinated with each other and the mystery of it all. A chance for the soulful self to rise up past conditioning and the restrictions that family, culture or religion imposed, bringing vitality and individuality to each unique soul.
"I grew up at a time of the battle of the sexes, patriarchy being questioned as it is in a new wave now, not exactly harmonious between the masculine and feminine around me, but my parents were going to call me Alex either way and I love that feeling that I can connect to both.
My creative self always led the way, finding relief and freedom when dancing and drawing - and although the body is my medium, using imagination and sculpting the mysterious have always attracted me just as much. I want it all - no divide between spirit and flesh, between the masculine and feminine within.. the lover to have desire and find beauty in many moments, the seeker to naturally connect to inspiration and devotion, the artist to design and take care of a life full of these riches.
I danced God, Sex and the Body with Gabrielle many times and have danced and co-taught with Jonathan for the last 2 years, finding new energy, questions and treasure each time. . I’m so delighted and grateful to be stepping onto the path to teach it myself, and a workshop with a built in party has to be perfect for me!"
"For 25 years I've witnessed Alex Mackay as a dedicated embodiment of all the maps of our 5Rhythms mandala. In her committed practice, a willingness to continue moving, exploring and seeing herself through the deep awareness of her own rhythms. In her teaching, a lyrical playfulness delivered with mystery, creativity, and maturity.
The more we co-created along her path studying our God, Sex, & the Body maps, the deeper my respect has grown for Alex's embodied presence of the shapeshifter -- a soul dancing without attachment and with intention to unearth the uniqueness and balance of nurture and action, of fascination and adventure, of intuition and integrity."
