DIVE INTO LIFE
17 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
Ubicación: Island of Cres , Cres
Organizer: Silvija Tomcik
The first four days men and women will work separately, each on their own topics, each in their own village (men in Porozine and women in Beli), each with their leader and on the fifth and part of the sixth day we will work together on the healing of prejudices, misconceptions and split between men and women; we will work on connecting, understanding and acceptance of differences and similarities. We will bring peace and balance in the personal space and heal the collective field.This is for everybody who wants new experiences, to do something good for themselves, who wants to relax and have fun, and in the same time to empower and to heal wounds – all this for living life more fully. These retreats are intended for both individuals and couples. The status is not important. You will experience a new personal strength, as well as the strength and safety of the community of women and men, including the strength and security of common fields. (Please look down the page for Instructions for couples.)
THE MEN RETREAT
5Rhythms, Gestalt and Men Work
Retreat is a great way to take the time, to land, to slow down, to give yourself that permission to descend within oneself. A retreat is a good opportunity to get in touch with your own emotional authenticity, whatever that is, to move in the direction of your own honesty as a human being. This retreat has this peculiar and singular fact that it is a retirement of men when women do theirs apart. This week is also a beautiful way to show yourself that one is in this condition of men, to challenge oneself with respect, to confront, to find in silence, in creativity the courage to be a Man in contact with other men, to feel responsible, emphatic. We'll take you plenty of time, there will be moments of meditation, moments of shared silence, physical exercises, movement, and plenty of time for individual and group work. All this in order to create a safe space in which each of us can have enough confidence to go as far as they can. The meeting of all the elements that make me a man among men - body, heart, head, soul and spirit. On this journey I really want to go with you.
Thierry François: There are different currents on my life path, I am grateful to have met them and I am happy to bring them in my work. As a young boy I started to dance. Later, I met the theatre. It was like a revelation and I felt a strong desire to play and to be on stage. I completed my training with several other practices such as dance (with Karine Saporta), mime and clown work. All that brought me further to meet the Gestalt therapy, a humanist method which gives flesh to the words. I remember that I was a little reluctant to go to my first 5Rhythms class in 2000 and that I was totally won over when I came out as it perfectly satisfied my need to integrate the body in my practice. I started to go dancing occasionally, then more regularly, then in a more addicted way by going elsewhere exploring dance, in other countries, other cultures, other teachings. In 2009, I’ve been accepted for a 5Rhythms Teacher Training with Gabrielle Roth, and since then I am an accredited teacher. Another important thread in my life and in my work is Men work (Man Kind Project) where I stand as one of the leaders now. I like to bring all those different aspects in my work and mix them with my enthusiasm for movement, my passion for music, my lightness and humor and creativity that accepts all of this.
Instructions for couples
One of the common reasons of disagreement in the partnership is different partner needs for autonomy and belonging. Some need more closeness and some more "air" and space. This work can have good effects on your relationship, understanding, support, on a balance of autonomy and belonging. The requirement for participation is to live separately, each in its own village. We recommend that you do not see each other for the first four days, because on these days the program is preparing you for the second part of the retreat when we work together on a new level of relations.
