5Rhythms & Gestalt Workshop with Thierry Francois
“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” Buddha
“Roads” is an exploration of the self in motion, opened to anyone that is willing to ride the path of presence, centering and body connected.
This workshop is about these two practices 5 Rhythms and Gestalt (psychotherapy) Two practices are like two life philosophies that understand each other very well. 5 Rhythms practice with its different energies or ways of being, invites us to experience our fluidity, our clarity, to loose ourselves in our dance, to get to know “the bearable lightness of being“ and to feel our inner calm. Gestalt therapy on the other hand gives us the opportunity to observe the process of what is going on in this moment without trying to explain it. Instead, we describe it and come to a way to adapt to it. My intention is to create a safe space and to let each of you «hit» the road and practice your own being in motion.
Moving and unfolding the process of the experience of the here and now, of the how we investigate, search, we experience together as a group, as an individual in the group, as a whole. We embark on the same journey, some of us are in the middle of the road, some at the crossroads, some are on rocky or shaky roads, some are driving up the hill, some are taking the going uneasy down, but wherever is our orientation we give support to each other
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. “
Workshop will be led in English with translation into Serbian.
