o fully give my attentiveness, my unconditional presence, my groundedness, my experience, to be a privileged witness to transformation, however tiny it can be. Each step is important. That’s what makes this work in our group beautiful and powerful. It can be confronting and challenging, as well, but what I get in return I can take with me to my daily life.
This ongoing journey is made of 5 modules – 4 one day workshops and 1 weekend workshop.
“The body knows things a long time before the mind catches up to them. I was wondering what my body knew that I didn’t.” Sue Monk Kidd
As a little kid, Thierry started taking ballet classes and later, as an adolescent, he would go for miles just to go dancing. Around the age of 20, he experienced a revelation when he got involved with the theatre, having a strong desire to be on stage and to play, to express, to share, to transmit and to be touched by it all. Having completed trainings for several other practices like dance, mime and clown, he was introduced to Gestalt therapy. Soon he became a therapist holding individual and group sessions in Paris and Zagreb. At the beginning of 2000’s, he came across 5Rhythms which completely won him over because it finally integrated bodywork into his practice. The Rhythms also helped him to explore other cultures, countries and teachings as he was travelling extensively to dance with different teachers. In 2010 he completed 5Rhythms Teacher Training with Gabrielle Roth, Waves level. He is also wholeheartedly involved with Men work as a leader of groups. He puts his vast enthusiasm and experience into his work, communicating his passion with humour, lightness and creativity.
Thierry: “My approach is holistic. This means I view and acknowledge the whole of you, including your values and beliefs, age, shape, physical limitations, cultural heritage and past. I don’t view you as a set of problems or issues to be fixed. I support you in building your sense of wholeness so that you may begin to accept all parts of yourself. I see all aspects of you as interconnected and a vital part of you.“
This group is limited to 20 participants.
The workshop is led in English, with a translation to Croatian if needed.

HEART WAVES is a beautiful opportunity to search inside of our hearts and find the answers that we look for on the outside and with others. This is an invitation to dance the dance that only we can dance and to do that in company of others; all surrendering to the mystery of what it is to be alive right now.
We will go one day at a time, step by step following the 5Rhythms map. Morning sessions will be Heartbeat level classes with Silvija, and evening sessions will be Sweat Your Prayers with Thierry.
In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away. We dance towards our spontaneous heart, the heart that is ready for anything.
The intention of Sweat Your Prayers is to have relatively little formal instruction, relying on the individual to create and support one’s own and therefore one another’s dance. It is a time to practice the 5Rhythms Wave, and most importantly learn to follow one’s own inner world. Afternoons will be left to our imagination, to our co-creation with the amazing natural gifts of this amazing island, to the medicine of sun and sea. And, one evening we will have a beach party to dance the joy of being alive.
“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words
than words without a heart. ” John Bunyan
