Prices and Payments

The booking forms are below. The payment options for evenings are:

♥ Pre-paid voucher (four evening sessions for £40) The cheapest and best for regulars.

♣ One-off pre-paid registration - £12. This is available right up to the the day.

♦ On the door: £15

When you register you'll be sent an invoice with BACS payment instructions, so please follow this through! Weekend and Day dance costs will be individually priced.

Please use the voucher system if you are planning to attend more than once:  it is cheaper for you than paying on the door, and it enormously helps organisation. 

After the dance: it is often fine to stay in the hall after a Friday evening. Great to begin a weekend in the Lakes, or if you've travelled a distance. Contact us beforehand if you wish to stay.


Voucher and Event Registration

"How do we live? How do we heal? How do we better serve those around us? How do we love? How do we rest more often in the arms of Spirit?"


Andrew HolmesAndrew has been teaching the 5 Rhythms for nearly twenty years. He studied extensively with Gabrielle Roth, and runs workshops in many countries. For twenty years he also worked as a theatre director, and his workshop The Holy Actor, which combines the embodied aliveness of the dance with the transforming freedom of improvised theatre, has become one of the classic workshops of the 5 Rhythms programme. He lives in England with his partner Sharon and family. Andrew teaches with precise subtlety, imperceptibly guiding you deep, without fuss. His gentle compassion creates a safe space in which transformation can happen. He works with a light touch, and an embodied intelligence, bringing great delight to the spiritual practice he loves.

PEARS This Dancing Body CumbriaThis body ~ often taken for granted, sometimes ill or in pain, always
We feed it, rest it, keep it warm
Wish it other than it is
And then attend to higher things..

But then again.. this body ~ home, a miracle of design
The creative instrument through which our dance takes form
A crucible of life and breath
A begging bowl for Spirit..

This is a weekend to more consciously inhabit our physical form
To breathe, and move, and feel
To celebrate the physical, and fill it luxuriantly with ourselves
To find acceptance and then revelation in our flesh and bones
And attend with honour to this body that loves to dance.

Do you want information about nearby camping /  lodgings? It is possible also to sleep in the hall, which has  upstairs rooms, kitchen and showers. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  to book your space.
