5Rhythms Heartbeat Workshop
led by Silvija Tomčik
There is a part of our mind that is wired and conditioned to seek permission. As we grow up we seek the permission from the outside, and in our maturity it comes the time to start giving ourselves that permission from the inside. Permission to be ourselves. Permission to move. Permission to feel. Permission to breathe so we can co-create with great mystery our own life experiences, and so there is less space for blame and excuses. Being able to feel and express so many different emotions is what makes the human experience so astonishing. Giving yourself permission to fully experience whatever state you may be in is one of the most cathartic, purifying things you can do. Emotions are important messengers that give us the answers we long for.
We will immerse deeper into the Flowing Rhythm that supports us in giving ourselves the permission to be and to follow that being. We will find our roots deeper in the Courage that can ground any fear we have, especially the fear to feel our hearts.
“Sometimes, all you need is permission to feel. Sometimes, what causes the most pain is actually the attempt to resist feeling, or the shame that grows up like thorns around it.” Olivia Laing

INTO THE WILD – 3-DAY WORKSHOP WITH MARTINA AND ANŽE
At this 3-day Workshop we will support our body to start slow and easy and find way back to roots of our own feet and inner flow in Flowing. We will invite impulses captured in our pelvis, to come alive and juicy and show us the way to our passion in Staccato. We will relax and release the tension of everyday thoughts and invite wisdom of letting go in Chaos. Rhythm of Lyrical will show us another perspective, intuitive trans and lightness will set us free. Allowing healing power of breath in Stillness, moving us till we step out of our way and let the self-healing of Body-Heart-Mind regulate it’s natural way.
Retreat will take place in Jezersko, small village on the border with Austria, surrounded by high mountains, unspoiled nature and beautiful mountain lake. We will dance in a pleasant warm hall with a wooden floor, with wonderful view on mountains, reserved only for our group. We will combine dancing in the hall with rituals in nature.
Two accommodations have been reserved, which are three minutes drive by car from the hall. Our hosts will be Pika and Polona. There is also an alternative option of accommodation in the hall, on pillows and in your sleeping bag.

Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego’s hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.
Creativity. Connection. Community.
