Welcome to a weekend at the deep end of the dance floor!
Moving through Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® map, we will explore each of the rhythms and their shadow counterparts, that are concealed in the dark.
Through embodiment and with curiosity, we are able to understand how the shadows are interwoven with our own lives. With kindness we are able to see the treasures that are hidden within them: The laziness which lead us to luxuriate and take our time, the power of our sharp, clear edges in motion, the opening to all directions to pour our busy minds into the poetic body, the dreamer envisioning the world anew, the safety of withdrawing into ourselves.
Once we change the viewpoint about what we reject in ourselves, the creative potential that is embedded in the shadows can emerge. We can reclaim rejected aspects of ourselves, and find lost energy. This investigation leads to "aha moments", with the potential to transform our personal as well as our cultural shadows.

5Rhythms® Residential Heartbeat
5 Days Workshop
Three Treasures Valley, HUNGARY
“Be the poetry of the movement to find the voice connected to the heart connected to the feet. To be able to stand in it and serve with it. Just be a catalyst. Art is the soul food each person needs.” Gabrielle Roth
On this workshop, we will connect our body with our emotions that come our way, through different creative and healing ways (dance and movement, voice work, drawing and painting, ritual theatre, writing, massage…). My intention is that we develop more tolerance for feeling our own emotions and find as many different ways to express and communicate them.
We will work following Gabrielle Roth’s map of 5 Rhythms and of 5 basic emotions – Fear that protects us, Anger that defends us, Sadness that releases us, Joy that uplifts us and Compassion that unites us.
Flowing is supporting us to feel our emotions through the physical body and how to ground them through the movement. Staccato is teaching us how to shape, express and communicate our heart in different sizes and volumes. Chaos is showing us the way how to go through the emotional waves and how to let them go through us into something bigger than us. Lyrical is shining a light to the brighter side, reminding us that this will pass too and that there is so much more space inside our chest to breathe. Stillness is whispering the wisdom of “let it be” and reminding us how very inter-connected we are through our very hearts.
“Art has the power to render sorrow beautiful, make loneliness a shared experience, and transform despair into hope.”
