5Rhythms® Residential 5 Days Heartbeat 

02-06.10.2019. Friedrichshof in Zurndorf, AUSTRIA

Led by Silvija Tomčik


“To befriend our feelings, we can dance them, sing them, act them, write them, and paint them; we can creatively explore and celebrate them.” Gabrielle Roth


On this workshop, we will connect our body with our emotions that come our way, through different creative and healing ways (dance, working with clay, voice work, water colours, ritual theatre, writing, massage, movement…). 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 to be 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.

Minimum 20 Waves hours. This workshop counts towards future 5Rhythms® trainings as a 5 days Heartbeat.
