Présentation de l'éditeur

In Sweat Your Prayers, internationally acclaimed movement and theater artist Gabrielle Roth translates to the printed page the insights of her nearly forty years of teaching personal and spiritual development. Her workshops, attended by thousands around the world, teach us to realize our potential for ecstasy as we experience movement and ritual-theater techniques.

The book is a journey through five universal rhythmsflowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness. These rhythms can free the body and spirit from ordinary consciousness and catalyze motion deep in the psyche. Complete with personal stories and interactive exercises, Sweat Your Prayers reveals an ancient and contemporary method for unleashing a natural sense of movement, resulting in both personal power and presence of the soul.

Livre excellent de Gabrielle Roth sur la génèse de la danse des 5 rythmes, mouvement de danse qu'elle a inventé et mis en place dans des ateliers. Mouvement de danse, que l'on peut pratiquer aussi en France.

Rhythm and Soul EVERYWHERE 9 novembre 2001
Par Elderbear - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"When you finally commit yourself completely to a creative act, knots inside you will loosen." (p. 128)
We can sort spiritual paths and psychological techniques by how the approach the human body. Gabrielle Roth's book serves as a useful adjunct to those paths that honor the body, rather than ignoring or minimizing it. For the atheists and agnostics out there, this book can also be used at a psychological level, and does not necessitate belief in "prayer" as a sacrament. In the book Roth presents five archetypal rhythms that help break some of the self-destructive patterns of Western culture and re-unite the practitioner with his or her spirit.
Roth begins the book with a brief autobiography, which also serves to establish her bona fides for writing a work on the spiritual/psychological use of dance and movement. She challenges the Western dismemberment of flesh from soul, body from spirit, she reclaims the chthonic and carnal. "The soul can only be present when body and spirit are one; it cannot breathe, exist, or move disconnected from the body." (p. 4) This book is her testimony to how we can retrieve our souls through our bodies.
Roth introduces the idea of the dance as a spiritual practice. She gives examples from her own life, challenges a list of excuses (I hate my body ... I'm too old ... I'm too shy). Then she offers "the only dance lesson you'll ever need:" Everybody has to find their own way, in their own time/space constraints to practice. She reminds us that "life is rhythm" and we need only participate in that rhythm consciously to be dancing, to be re-weaving body and soul. She then offers five concepts to help prepare for doing the rhythms: 1) That the goal is to move, to experience, not to complete something; 2) Dance happens in space, between things, between people, between worlds; 3) Awareness is the key element of dance, by paying attention to the body in rhythm, we alter consciousness and manifest our souls; 4) Follow your breath, let your breath move you; 5) Choose music that speaks to you and makes you aware of the five rhythms that make up Roth's "Wave".
She presents the five basic rhythms (flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness) and links them to primal archetypes. She has created glyphs/symbols for these links, and invites the reader to create their own. Each of the five rhythms gets its own chapter, detailing ideas linking the rhythm to archetypes, body, soul, and heart. Roth explains well, providing compelling examples to illustrate her points. Each chapter has exercises ("To Do/Not Do") as well as a list of words that elicit the archetypes for Roth. Poetry and quotations sprinkle through each chapter.
Roth concludes with a chapter called "Waves" where she presents examples of the five rhythms that go beyond dance, examining among others experiences of the subway, relationships, and architecture. Some examples are hers, others come from friends and students. The book provides contact information for the author, as well as video and CD resources.
Roth does an entertaining job of describing a spiritual/psychological physical practice as well as a state of being that has tremendous potential to enhance life. I have worked with her rhythms at times in my life, and found this approach to be empowering. Other times I avoid the movement, the dance-and I'm not certain why. I have found this work quite helpful and recommend it to anybody who feels the need to better connect body and soul.

Thought-provoking, exciting, and fun to read 23 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was raised in a religious tradition that views the body as the source of sin and the antithesis of spirit. Over the years, most of my physical activity (e.g., yoga) has focussed on disciplining the body so that it wouldn't get in the way of the soul's higher aspirations. Although I enjoyed dancing in social settings, I considered this merely one of the crass earthly pleasures, and never took myself seriously as a dancer because I don't have a "dancer's body." Then last year, at the age of 50-plus, in a moment of "Oh, what the h*ll" I succumbed to a long-standing fascination with belly dancing and signed up for a class. It's been a revelation: not only am I stronger and fitter, but I've become friends with my body as never before.
Gabrielle Roth went through a similar process, and the results are embodied in her workshops, videos, music CDs, and, now, this book. Genuinely respecting one's body as a partner to the soul is a radical notion for most of us. Roth appeals to our intuition (our gut feelings!) as well as our rational mind, and the book is not only thought-provoking but exciting on many levels. Her passion, vitality, and enthusiasm are well expressed through her writing; she phrases her thoughts memorably, and the book is an unmitigated pleasure to read. While I don't buy all of her quasi-Jungian view of personality, one doesn't have to to appreciate the book or the author's general approach to dance as a spiritual practice. Heartily recommended, and deserves reading and rereading.

Provocative and authentic. 28 mai 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Roth begins with a beautiful poetic autobiog-journey about her own body and how she came to be doing her work in trance-dance/movement as spiritual practice. The book then explores her framework of five rhythms, and also delves into her view of archetypes within everyone . . . dual trinities, one male and one female. I didn't quite embrace all of it, but it's provocative. If you are new to Roth's work and want to try "sweating your prayers" at home, her 1993 video "The Wave", which is excellent, is where to start, but the book gives a deeper look at her work and explores why people yearn for this kind of movement. Also, Roth's personality is rich, theatrical, warm, sassy, genuine . . . it was a pleasure to get to know her through this book.

A bit of a stretch 2 avril 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I love her music. I really liked Maps to Ecstasy. I think this book is a bit overwrought in its attempt to assign such specific archetypal labels to each of the rhythms. Every few pages or so, all I wanted to do was toss the book, turn on the stereo and move around some--and forget all the psychobabble. I found it cumbersome and tiresome. At some point, you just gotta shutup and dance...

INSPIRATIONAL 20 septembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
this book came into my life at a crucial time and re-awakened something in me that had been dormant for too long. gabrielle is an urban shaman, leading the reader through the 5 rhythms (of movement AND of life), the various corresponding archetypes (son, father, holy spirit, mistress, mother and madonna, just to name a few), and her own personal experiences to elucidate and bring to light her system of seeing and being in the world. This book rocks, and for anyone who ever felt the divine spark within dance or movement, wondered about the mysticism within a trance-state, or anyone who feels stuck in their present life situation, this is required reading! Not only does gabrielle root her philosophy and practice in the physical, her work is such that the body becomes a vehicle for psychological and spiritual growth and unfoldment... if you don't believe me or can't figure out how she could do that, all i can recommend is that you buy this book and see it for yourself. it's beautiful. btw, this book turned me on to gabrielle's cd's to dance/move to, and also propelled me to work with a 5 rhythm movement teacher in my area. gabrielle is a clear, radiant, joyous, intimate, guiding light within our congested and toxic world. read this book, absorb it and enrich your life.
