Gabrielle Roth is the creator of 5 rhythms dance, a dance without steps, which she sees as a spiritual practice. After a great workshop with Gabrielle, dancing the 5 rhythms, I wanted to take some of that blissful feeling home. Initiation seemed like a good place to start. Described as a "downtempo 5 rhythm ride", it guides you through the 5 rhythms - flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, stillness. It's a good introduction to Gabrielle's music. I'd also recommend her books - really interesting to read even if you don't get up and dance!

This music is fantastic for relaxation, dance and meditation. I put it on and I become more present in my body. It helps me wipe away the endless mind chatter that arises despite my best intentions and interest in Eckhart Tolle's work.
Wonderful - buy it and dance whatever way it takes you.

Its a brilliant CD that works well for group workshops. A good one for beginning the initiation of Gabrielle Roth. I may buy another.

I do love Gabrielle Roth's work - I did a workshop with her in the 80s in London. She was amazing.

Moving to the Music, a personal & "daily" practice 20 Mar. 2001
By Elderbear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first learned of Gabrielle Roth at a Sacred Path men's retreat. The retreat focused on sacred movement, attaching emotions & totems to each of Roth's five dance styles: flowing, stacatto, chaos, lyrical, and stillness. We had live drumming at the retreat and didn't use recorded music. On the way home, however, I stopped and bought a copy of INITIATION so I could work through the rhythms myself.
If not danced to, the music is OK, nothing spectacular. It's not particularly great party dance music, either. But as the basis for an embodied spiritual practice? Wow! It's hard to beat.
I open up with flowing, connecting with Goddess, connecting with Earth, connecting with Ancestors, connecting with Spirit, connecting with Heart. I let my body move in flowing motions, softly, gently, slowly opening, encompassing more and more.
Moving on to stacatto, I move into a new energy space. Man, the toolmaker, not simply flowing with the current, but carving out a life. My energy level is rising. Into this movement I pour my plans, my goals, all that I would control.
The third movement, Chaos, seems to be the natural result of carving out my expectations from life. I let my body move wildly, struggling to control the rhythm, to push the river, to herd cats. This is where I bring my anger, frustration, and fear, letting the emotions flow through body language, in which no lie can be enacted.
The exhaustion of Chaos leads naturally into the rest of lyrical movement. It's discovering a new level of peace, of connectedness with the Universe, with Goddess, with Spirit; knowing that I'm not alone in the Chaos.
Finally, comes stillness, where I allow my motions to wind down, allow my body to slow down, to come to rest, to enter into meditation.
I've not worked with the other body music on the CD, I don't have enough time most days to work through the five rhythms. But that leaves me something to look forward to.

#1: Dancing

#2: Mediation

#3: Yoga/Stretching

#4: Martial Arts

If you need some relaxation for you body, mind and soul, don't hesitate to purchase this.
Best for working with spiral energy 18 Jan. 2014
By saille - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
"Initiation" is another of Gabrielle Roth and the Mirrors that helps to create a powerful energy for creating altered states of consciousness. When working with spiral movements it draws you deep into the larger world beyond physical reality. Anyone who explores different types of Shamanistic spirituality will find this time-tested music to be an honored partner in their workings. It wouldn't be a full moon without it!
A glitch 17 May 2012
By Ken Stofft - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Fascinating music, though there is one glitch with this CD. It states it is taking you through the 5 rhythms, yet there are 7 tracks. This is confusing. There are no explanations on the CD explaining why "Jazz" and "Initiation" are added or what rhythm they are demonstrating/using. Pity. It would have been most helpful. That's the only disappointment. The music is fantastic.
