“Between the head and feet of any given person is billion miles of unexplored wilderness ” Gabrielle Roth, founder of 5Rhythms
On this 3-day 5Rhythms workshop, heart level (Heartbeat™), I will invite you to embark on a circular journey, where we will explore emotions as energy, as a form of power that is part of the universal human experience.
We will give space to the stagnant energies of emotions that are locked in our organs and held in the cage of our chest. We will invite them to move and, with their breath and expression, invite them to begin to gradually relax. We will navigate between emotional landscapes, without the need to move away from them or push them aside: fear-anger-sadness-joy-compassion. We will give ourselves permission, body and heart, for emotions to once again become our basic language, our sanctuary, our book of wisdom, our home.
Starts on Friday, 10th of February 2023 at 19.30. Finishes on Sunday, 12th of February 2023 at 16.30. You will receive a detailed program upon registration.

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.
The prerequisite for participation in the workshop is 15 hours of danced guided meetings with a certified teacher, Waves level.
Participation in the workshops counts 15 hours or as 3-day workshop, Heartbeat level, for those who are on the path to become a 5Rhythms teacher.
LANGUAGE: workshop will be led in Slovenian, with translation into English.PRIJAVI SE!
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
