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.

One day Workshop 5Rhythms
«MAPS TO ECSTASY»
From inertia to inspiration
Led by 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 with who we really are, who prevents us from being fully ourselves. “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.
A day to embody these aspects of myself connected to some other inspired and inspiring human being . A dance , nothing more, nothing less.
Workshop is led in English. No previous experience needed.
Thierry about himself: “I’m French and I live in Zagreb. I’ve been teaching the Five Rhythms practice for 8 years now. I discovered the practice in 2002 and it has changed significantly my view of movement and being on the move. I’ve met Gabrielle Roth first through her books and then on trainings in the US and France. I’m happy to have had the opportunity to be her disciple. Learning of 5Rhythms practice is the way that changes and moves, and what I especially love is the dimension of unity we achieve through body, heart, and spirit. I am married to Silvija Tomcik and the father of little Numa. I come from the theater, I’m a Certified Gestalt therapist and I have been developing for a number of years by dealing with the Male aspect, as one of the leaders of the Mankind project. I like to explore creativity through music and various artistic forms, and especially through everything that arises on the dance floor. 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. “
