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.

“There’s nothing cleaner, more effective than appropriate anger.” – Gabrielle Roth
If fear is the guardian of life force, anger is the defender. Most of us learned early on to listen to fear, hear its wise counsel, and heed its message. But, many of us learned early on to not listen to anger in the same way we do fear. Instead of listening to anger’s voice, hearing its truth, and acting from the heart, we may have learned to shut down, shut out, and shut up our anger. Or, we may have learned to listen but not hear, react instead of act, feed on its power instead of heeding its strength.
Being on a Collision Course is something that we’ve all experienced at sometime or another, one way or another, and we all have different ways of navigating the streets and avenues that got us there. Finding our way to a direct way through requires a clear map, one that gives us the space to see how we get lost, how we can re-position, and how we can learn to travel in the clearest direction. Letting the 5Rhythms Wave be our map we’ll explore, examine, and exhale Anger from every angle, whether on the edge or off to the side, finding an open-hearted road that leads from collision course to open expressways.
Anger is a dance that all of us have (even those of us who say they have no anger). It’s one that we all have a right and a responsibility to learn to dance with, both with passion and compassion. Every step we take towards embodying our anger by recognizing all of its shapes and faces, brings us closer to befriending anger as a partner in living a courageous life filled with the possibility of loving truthfully.
