ONE DAY WAVES WORKSHOP
5Rhythms as perspective
„BEGINNING, MIDDLE; END”
15.04. Sunday, 10:30-17:30h
ZAGREB – Češki Dom
led by Silvija Tomčik
The 5Rhythms gives us a perspective, a point of view, a lens through which we can look at life. Life is full of beginnings, middles and ends. And not a one of them exists without the others.
On this workshop we will explore what can we learn about these three thresholds of experience through the lens of 5Rhythms map. And vice versa.
Each of these three different stages of any experience give us a very different perspective and understanding of how and where we are.
Some of us are struggling more with one of these phases and more at ease with others. For some of us it is easy to begin reading many books, and finding it hard to end any of them. For me the middle of the process is the most challenging and I often rush and push to the ending of it to find a way out, even before something really ended.
What about you? Let’s share the investigation and find out.
This workshop counts as 1 day of Waves level towards the Teacher Training. No previous experience needed.
Silvija Tomcik was introduced to Gabrielle Roth’s teachings through her book Maps to Ecstasy 22 years ago. It was a powerful encounter, which motivated Silvija to begin searching for 5Rhythms teachers with whom she could dance. She organized numerous 5Rworkshops in Croatia and Slovenia, bringing the practice for the first time to this part of the world. At the time she was working in the Center for Peace Studies and leading workshops on gender issues. She finished the Waves Teacher Training with Gabrielle in 2001, and Heartbeat Teacher Training in 2010. Silvija regularly teaches at weekend workshops and retreats internationally. In her teaching she combines clarity, with imagination, humour with wisdom and a great variety of music. Her grounded way of dancing is inspiring. She is passionate about the freedom of being in the body as a way of prompting everyone to discover their personal dance and healing movement.
Please accept this is invitation to join a treasure hunt for delight.
Huh? What on earth? Did I send that?
Well no you didn’t. But maybe without even knowing it you have been on that quest. Or maybe you’ve known it but have been too busy to surrender to the question. Or maybe you just don’t remember the last time you laughed uncontrollably,
Do you remember the last time that you baltered (Definition: to dance artlessly, without particular grace or skill but usually with enjoyment.)? That you felt the weight fall off of your shoulders? That your chest felt loose and your feet fleet? That your face relaxed and your eyes widened with wonder?
In this weekend workshop we will replace work with curiosity and enter into the curiosity shop that is our relationship with the big, possibly heavy weight of the word Joy. We’ll wrestle if to the ground and tickle it to life. We’ll tip toe around it, get in it’s face, rock rattle and roil it, and dance into the lightness of being.
“Allow yourself to trust joy and embrace it. You will find you dance with everything.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
