Upcoming Workshops

Connection 2024

Newcastle - 8 Mar 2024 to 30 Nov 2024
Rachel Kurtz - Liz Collier

On this course we explore aspects of connection through each of the rhythms over five modules, beginning in March and ending in November. In the safety of a closed group we will use using creativity and sensory and dancing explorations to invite deeper connections with self, other, group, the planet and spirit. This includes working with the shadow rhythms to better understand how we habitually limit the depth of our connections, and learning how to transform these habits into doorways to greater fulfilment.

Fridays 7 - 9pm and Saturdays 10 - 6pm: 

8, 9 March

3, 4 May

28, 29 June

6, 7 September

29, 30 November

Please only apply if you are available for all five modules.


'Golden Man' ~ A Residential Retreat for Men

Glastonbury - 20 Jun 2024 to 23 Jun 2024
Francis Michael Eliot




Reclaiming healthy masculinity through 5Rhythms Dance, Creative Process & Ritual. An inspirational retreat for men who wish to dance, heal & reclaim their innocence and vitality. Topics will include: cultivating honesty, healing our shame, honouring our essence, learning to walk our talk, and rediscovering our embodied sense that the world is a safe space in which we are meant to thrive.

• June 20th, 6pm – June 23rd, 4pm
• £445 fully residential/ £295 non residential (£95 non refundable deposit to secure your place)
• 16 places only. Various accommodation options available.
• Venue: Sambogaya, Dod Lane, Glastonbury BA6 8BZ
• Includes delicious wholesome meals, nature walk & a rebirth in the White Spring
• Booking: email francis@awakenedpresence.org

The process itself was more than I could ever have imagined. The power of 5Rhythms to unlock & facilitate such deep healing is quite remarkable. Thank you Francis for dedicating your life to helping others in this way. In Sambogaya you have created a magical and deeply transformative sacred space for this healing to emerge” ~ David Roy Green (past Golden Man participant)

Francis has been teaching 5Rhythms since completing his training with Gabrielle Roth in 2005. He initiated into the Mankind Project in the same year and has worked extensively with them. He has led men’s groups & is deeply passionate about using movement to heal the personal & ancestral shame that men often hold. In June 2023 he underwent a Bwiti initiation in Gabon which deepened his capacity to work effectively in the realms of the shadow. Sambogaya is Francis' exquisite new Retreat Centre in Glastonbury. The centre is surrounded by beautiful countryside, just 2 minutes' walk from the town centre. During the retreat we will make the short walk to the historic White Spring to take an optional dip in the sacred water. There will also be ample opportunity to take the 20 minute walk through the countryside to Glastonbury Tor.
