THE JOY OF BEING ALIVE

Madrid - 10 Feb 2023 to 12 Feb 2023
Silvija Tomcik

 “THE JOY OF BEING ALIVE”

5RHYTHMS ® Heartbeat level workshop

led by Silvija Tomčik

10-12.02.2023. MADRID

 

In this workshop, we will explore, with our whole body and with our amazing creativity of movement, this feeling of aliveness and well-being in our heart. This ability to meet the ups and downs of our life with authenticity and perspective. This practice is not about manufacturing positive experiences but about becoming aware of those that are already present. It is about opening to the good. There is excitement in our fear, passion in our anger, rejuvenation in our sadness. There are so many flavors of joy – sometimes it delights us and uplifts us and connects us; sometimes we can sit still in contentment; sometimes we can flow with ease; sometimes we can scream “I am alive” sometimes it is bittersweet; sometimes is contagious; sometimes it is a sense of grace that takes a shape of gratitude. Using our human super powers of mindfulness and nonjudgmental awareness we can simply take things as they are – and even bask in the joys of that feeling.

 

“People say that what we’re all seeking in life is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think we’re seeking the rapture, the joy, of being alive.” Joseph Campbell

 

Silvija Tomčik, accredited 5Rhythms teacher, was introduced to Gabrielle Roth’s teachings through her book Maps to Ecstasy 20 years ago. It was a powerful encounter, which motivated Silvija to begin searching for teachers of the 5Rhythms with whom she wished to dance. So she began organizing 5Rhythms workshops and brought the method to Croatia and the region for the first time. After having danced for several years, she did the teacher training with Gabrielle in USA, where she received Waves certification in 2001. She received her Heartbeat Level training and certification in 2010. Teaching and dancing are her natural gifts.

 

“I have worked with Silvija for years. She is an excellent teacher, co-facilitator, friend, mother and human being. She embodies the five rhythms in a deep and profound way. She will take you all the way.” Jonathan Horan, 5Rhythms Creative Director

 

“Silvija´s teaching is both grounded and spiritual. Light and deep at the same time. Powerful. Highly recommended.” Stefan, dancer

 

“Your dedication is inspiring. Your passion is infectious. Your aliveness awakens. Your spirit calls us into the deeper mystery.” Karoliina Valointaval, 5Rhythms Teacher

Algarabia

Valencia - 31 Mar 2023 to 2 Apr 2023

ALGARABÍA: 5RHYTHMS RETREAT

“The will is by nature so free it can never be contained. Free will is present every time we make a conscious decision.” Descartes

Algarabía is the noise produced by joyful and festive voices, it is also the name given by Christians to the Arabic language in medieval times.

In this time of air, the mind dances in a noise “algarabía”, multiple voices coming from multiple places. It is a time of confusion, of fusion of the multiple, of creation.

In this retreat we dance to learn to dance, to listen and to watch. To move first and then to name. The 5Rhythms give us the necessary structure to move until we find the freedom to be who we are among so many voices within us. A dance of acceptance that reverses the usual direction of action: movement before thought.

DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH DISCIPLINE TO BE FREE? Gabrielle Roth

Discipline to keep moving without understanding, to decide which voices I listen and which I don’t, to follow the paths of joy and not fall into the temptation of judgement and lamentation.

Discipline to be friends (to make good friends) to love what it is. And for this, we stop to dance 5Rhythms, to repair in our joy “algarabía” and that of the world. To attend in presence to the dance that happens in your life. So that life is full, and we do not miss the beauty and joy that is happening in the chaos previous to the new.

GABRIEL ROTH’S 5RHYTHMS

Gabriel Roth 5Rhythms bring the sacred to the everyday, offer a path of recovery of the ancestral knowledge of dance and put it at the service of the new times.

Practiced by tens of thousands around the world. 5Rhythms is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and movement practice based on the principle that if you set your psyche in motion, it will heal itself.

FLOWING - STACCATO - CHAOS - LYRICAL - STILLNESS

5Rhythms that make up the Wave, through which to navigate the internal and external tides of the evolutionary process in which you find yourself.

3 days to explore the fundamentals of each rhythm, with the focus on the chaos and the lyrical. In the transition from the SELF (personal) to the greater transpersonal mind.

•This retreat counts as prerequisite hours at the Waves level for the official 5Rhythms® training.
