5RHYTHMS ® Heartbeat level workshop

3 days led by Silvija Tomčik

30.05.-01.06.2025. STOCKHOLM



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 first started dancing and organising 5Rhythms workshops after reading Maps to Ecstasy, Gabrielle Roth’s book many years ago. After finishing her own Teacher Trainings (Waves 2001 and Heartbeat levels 2010) she started teaching her own workshops and retreats internationally combining clarity, imagination, humour and wisdom with a great variety of music. Her own embodiment inspires participants to their own dance and healing movement. 


“Silvija has the rare perfect balance of masculine and feminine energies in her presence that render her teaching powerfully solid and clear as well as nourishingly rich. She weaves her magic with her words, ever so full of colourful analogies that ground the work in unforgettable beautiful verbal expressions… These words that impart humour’s lightness as well as lifetimes of deep wisdom. Most importantly, her knowledge, full presence, energy and movement inspire any body to fall in love with the 5Rhythms practise from the first encounter.”

Lina Nahhas, 5 Rhythms Teacher
