5RHYTHMS ® Heartbeat level workshop

led by Silvija Tomčik

13-15.09.2019.  ROME


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. She is currently a member of the Teaching Staff team that provides Teacher Training at the moment, led by Jonathan Horan. Teaching and dancing are her natural gifts.


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

“Silvija embodies 5Rhythms in the most natural, humbling and human way. Her life is her inspiration for the dance floor and in that way her teaching goes straight to the heart.”  Pauline van Hezik, 5Rhythms teacher
