“THE POWER OF LOVING”
Led by Silvija Tomčik
BARCELONA 30.09.- 02.10.2022.
“The first creative task is to free the body to experience the power of being.
The second major task is to express the heart, freeing the emotions to experience the power of loving.”
On this weekend workshop we will explore the energy of our emotions. Transforming our relationship to them, by expressing and releasing what we still carry, we will find a way back to their purity and directness in the moment.
Following Gabrielle’s Heartbeat map we will work with the five basic emotions — fear, anger, sadness, joy and compassion, and all their nuances that we don’t even need to name. These are an essential and vital part of what we feel when we feel love. When we love, our hearts are challenged to feel the full range of our emotions. Our practice is to find the fluidity from one to another, the honesty of emotion with ourselves and others, the clear embodiment that allows us to stay grounded and centred when a Wave of any emotion passes through us.
Silvija Tomčik was introduced 22 years ago to Gabrielle Roth’s teachings through her book Maps to Ecstasy. It was a powerful encounter, which motivated Silvija to begin searching for teachers of the 5Rhythms to begin her dancing path. Since then she has been organizing 5Rhythms workshops in Croatia bringing it for the first time to this part of the world. At the time she was working in the Center for Peace Studies and leading workshops on gender issues. She has finished Waves Teacher Training with Gabrielle in 2001., and in 2010. the Heartbeat Teacher Training. Silvija has been a part of the Teacher Training Staff with Jonathan Horan 2013-2020. She teaches weekend and residential workshops around the world; using her imagination, great variety of music, her grounded way of dancing and her love for the freedom of being in the body to prompt people to discover their personal dance and healing movement.
“Thank you for your clarity, enthusiasm and also your curiosity and care — I have an experience of a human kindness in you which is incalculable in its worth — yes very precious. It’s like you cherish each person.” Nancy Harrison, 5Rhythms Teacher
