5 Days 5 Rhythms® Workshop

from Old Year to New Year

Led by Silvija Tomčik with Thierry François

Special guests:

Azi Amazandeh, 5Rhythms teacher and some surprises


Leibnitz, Austria


Has known God
Not the God of names
Not the God of don’ts,
Not the God who ever does
Anything weird,
But the God who only knows four words
And keeps repeating them, saying:

Come dance with me….



Tribal dance is a gathering of dancers coming together from different places to reflect, heal and let go with gratitude the year that has passed, as well as welcome the new one with our intentions, visions and inspirations. It is an opportunity to celebrate unity through our uniqueness.

This year’s Tribal Dance is inspired by the Sufi/ Persian poetry, art and wisdom.

This workshop will be a balanced combination of basic 5Rhythms® teachings and 2 dancing ceremonies.

5Rhythms®: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness – show us the way to be rooted, centered, powerful, visionary and in Love.

We offer 2 dancing ceremonies as powerful and efficient tools to state our intentions, and keep the mind focused; they are the vessels holding space for us to enter timelessness and expand our consciousness. The need for ceremonies at certain times of our life and at certain times throughout the year, like the time around the New Year, is deeply rooted in our human DNA.

Dance Pilgrimage (led by Silvija) is a deep moving meditation through the landscape of the Wave. We dance across the room for a long period of time with the sense of our personal as well as our tribal prayer. Pilgrimage as an ancient symbol depicts our journey, through our ups and downs, through the darkness into the light – and this pilgrimage will take us from the last hours of the Old year into the first hours of the New year.

The Tree Ceremony (led by Thierry) is an invitation to dance in the direction of what is in front of us, into the perspective of the New Year that is beginning. We dance in one direction, towards what is front of us. In this dance we can allow ourselves to surrender to the power of the tree and its gifts.


We begin on 29.12. at 18h and we end on 02.01. at 17:30h.

You can stay one night longer in Jufa.
