5Rhythms© AKA “Sweat Your Prayers”: This is great way to let loose come together with friends, family and community and practice the 5 rhythms Waves. 5Rhythms© “Sweat Your Prayers” is every Sunday 4pm-6pm at Makawao Union Church (changes posted on www.medicineflow.com). There is also a Sunday class at Lemuria Maui, from 10:30am-12pm “5Rhythms is a dynamic movement meditation practice and philosophy based on a notion that our life is nothing but a dance. While a metaphor, it is also a concrete invitation to turn our suffering and our bliss into art. We can dance our sadness, our anxiety, our confusion. We can dance our joy, our hope, our dreams. No experience (other than your own experience of being human) is necessary. All ages, sizes and physical abilities welcome. Namaste, Dr. Kabba.”
