-a 5Rhythms® Workshop with Thierry Francois
"The path to ecstasy is up through 5 levels of consciousness, 5 layers through which energy most naturally flows from purely physical existence to its highest potential." -Gabrielle Roth
We spend a good part of our lives struggling to find out who we are, which prevents us from being fully aligned with our true self. "From Inertia to Inspiration" takes us by the hand to unfold the thread of our own movement, our "feeling", our desire to move from the source of life. From inertia, a place from which to start, then finding the way out of this static state. A step to allow ourselves to move out of inertia into energizing movement. Imitation is a vital part of our path, a way to learn, a catalyst for change. Following this practice gets us moving in the direction of spiritual liberation. Intuition, from deep within, embracing and paying attention to our rooted connection, our creative self. And the simplest way to enhance our intuitive powers is to move with them.�
Imagination to mobilize our natural gifts, our talent, our potential, our realization - all things we are driven to do. Being generous in our imagination.�Inspiration when there is only dancing, no thoughts, no doing, just the dancing, just the moving center. The inspired dance, with the sense of sacredness, ritualistic and with a sense of mystery. A weekend workshop to embody these aspects of ourselves together with other inspired and inspiring human beings. A dance, nothing more, nothing less.
The workshop is led in English. No previous experience required.

As a kid, Thierry started to attend ballet lessons and later, as an adolescent, he would travel miles just to go dancing. When he was about 20, he had an epiphany when he began to pursue theater with a strong desire to be on stage and to play, to express himself, to share with others and to be inspired by it all. Having received training in numerous other practices such as dance, mime and clown, his path led him to Gestalt therapy. He soon becomes a therapist and holds individual and group classes in Paris and Zagreb. In the early 2000s, he came across 5Rhythms that completely overwhelmed him, as he was finally able to integrate body work into his practice. The Rhythms also helped him explore other cultures, countries and teachings, traveling widely and dancing with numerous teachers. In 2010, he completed 5Rhythms teachers training with Gabrielle Roth, Waves level, and he is currently training for the Heartbeat level with Jonathan Horan. In addition, as a teacher, he is one of the Leaders of the ManKind Project, working around masculinity. He invests his enormous enthusiasm and experience into his work, communicating his passion in a creative, easygoing and humorous way.
