      I read this book years ago at the beginning of my Nia training. I enjoyed it then and got lots out of it AND re-reading it years later after dancing the 5Rhythms regularly, it makes even more sense and the wisdom of this work comes through even more clearly. Read it, but more importantly, dance it.

      swept me away I got this book after doing a 5 rhythm workshop the workshop blew me away the practice enlivens me and makes me happy the book revealed to me why I have throughout my entire life (I'm now 72 years old) chosen dance and movement as a way to break through my conditioned, rigid patterns and taste the joy of the bliss that is what we are. Gabielle is the real deal and her 5 rhythm practice and her books are about much more than a dance. She offers the reader and the practitioner of the [...]

      I read Gabrielle's book after getting involved with a 5 Ryhythms class. What an amazing and talented force of nature Gabrielle was. I wasn't even expecting her to be such a great writer. This is a must read not only for anyone who's been touched by Gabrielle's spirit through conscious dance but for anyone interested in expanding your consciousness and learning more about the amazing art form of dance.

      Hmmm. I really like Gabrielle Roth. I like dancing to her music. And I like reading her books. This one, as well as Sweat Your Prayers. Very good teaching, leading rehearsal techniques. I dig it. Chilled me out and made me want to move and teach and change the world. Good stuff.

      Reading this was like visiting a Lon lost friend. I was introduced many years ago to G.R.'s work and it was an epiphany for someone who carried a lot shame, bad self image and anger. I was blessed to be able to meet Gabrielle in Seattle and understood what it was like to be in the presence of an "illuminated soul." Years have passed since then and I have lost touch . A friend gave me this book and it has reawakened those gifts that this amazing woman has shared. I had also learned that GR had di [...]

      I read this book several years ago when I was first introduced to 5Rhythms but now that I have been practicing on a more regular basis I feel that Roth's explanation of the various maps makes so much more sense. And the truth is that as others have said reading the words is only a small sliver of the work-- you need to dance and move your body to come to understand the maps.

      I've just recently discovered 5 Rhythms dance as a movement practice. Gabrielle Roth is the creator and this book explains her psychological and healing framework for the practice. Her framework intuitively suits me and healing through movement is where I'm at in life at this moment. There is so much food for thought in these pages.

      Took this off my shelf because i've decided i'm not going to finish it. It already made me roll my eyes numerous times, & Roth's holier-than-thou tone grated on my nerves so. Much. She had made good points about anger & its validity, but she sure as hell lost me when she talked about her version of compassion, which didn't include meeting people where they were at the moment, but demanding they come up on her physical level-- which was also a way of saying "I think you need to grow up &a [...]

      The day after I went to my first ecstatic dance I was still glowing. I was reminded that as a youth, the family church forbade us to dance, like the movie Footloose. There was a joke among the kids. Why does the church forbid premarital sex? Because it might lead to dancing. At 50, I had to figure out what I had missed. I discovered Roth's book, Maps to Ecstasy and it spoke essential truth."The best way to still my mind is to move my body". Agree! Our lives are embodied. "Your body is the ground [...]

      I enjoyed some parts of this book, but it was a little too broad! I wasn't sure what the common threat of book was. It was beautifully written, but lacked focus. I'm saddened to hear that Gabrielle Roth passed away last year. I heard she was an inspired dancer!

      Sorry she is gone. Read this years ago. Liked it. I did not love it.
