I have been dancing 5Rhythms for over 15 years and teaching since 2008. For me the 5Rhythms opens up the territory of my life and learning, it shows me who are am and where my strengths and weaknesses lie. It gives me the insights and tools needed to follow my path in life as a unique individual expression of the divine. I run classes, workshops and residential retreats in the West Midlands and beyond. "But why dance?" you might ask.

For me the answer is simple - it has changed my life and I love it. Through the 5 Rhythms I have become more alive, more real and more available in my meetings with others. I have learned to be more spontaneous and in the moment whilst taking myself less seriously than before. However, I have also gained a greater integrity and a deeper commitment to my life, my death and to my relationships.

Your journey with the 5 Rhythms will be your own and unique path and healing experience, but I know it will support you too if you choose the dancing path.

Hope to meet you in the dance.

Neil is currently training 5Rhythms at Heartbeat level.

Neil has passion, and energy, and a sense of humour. He stirs up whirlwinds, and then drops through surprising doors into tenderness and vulnerability.” Andrew Holmes

“What I love about Neil is that he is total in his dance."
