Body Hour

Body Hour is a somatic meditation rooted in mindfulness and the principles of 5 Rhymths, but with a twist…

This practice was developed, in part, to be accessible to all bodies. There are no requirements as to skill or dis/ability at Body Hour. All bodies are welcome; come and make this practice your own.

This practice was also developed by friends & collaborators – Amy Garner Buchanan & Jessica Munna – as a means to connect with each other and themselves during COVID.

We are thrilled to be offering in-person & online sessions. 

 

What is Body Hour?

Body Hour begins with an intention or question set by each practitioner. This question can be witnessed and shared between practitioners. The question can be as abstract as you like.

Once the music begins, you are free to explore your question/intention through the time consciously spent in/with your body. This can be a solo journey or you are welcome to consensually interact with other practitioners.

The music playlist will follow the 5 rhythms map: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness. You are welcome to follow this map as a starting point, but we encourage you to let your body and your question guide you through this time: you could spend the entire hour frantically flailing your limbs, laying still on a mat, or sitting in a chair moving only your wrist and pinky finger. It is for you to interpret the intention and the music within your body however it manifests for you. It is a time for you to be in conversation with yourself, however that manifests. We end the session in stillness & rest to allow whatever we’ve experienced over the last hour to integrate.

Each practitioner has the option to conclude and depart individually or to stay and share their experience.
