5 Days 5 Rhythms® Workshop

from Old Year to New Year

Led by Silvija Tomčik with Thierry Francois


29.12.2024 – 02.01.2025

Leibnitz, Austria


“In the beginning, we all danced. Our ancestors danced until they disappeared in the dance, until they felt the full force of spirit unleashing their souls. This was their religion, and it was ecstatic and personal and tribal.” 



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 wisdom, culture and art from Brazil. 


This workshop will be a balanced combination of basic 5Rhythms® teachings, 2 dancing ceremonies and some surprise additions to the program.

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, Dance Pilgrimage and Tree Ceremony (supported with Sacred Cacao from Brazil), 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.


Silvija 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. 

Thierry has been pursuing theater career with exploration of dance, mime and clown work. Being a Gestalt therapist, 5Rhythms helped him to integrate body work into his practice. He is a certified Waves level teacher from 2010 and is currently in training for Heartbeat level. He also works as a facilitator of men’s groups on ManKind Project. He brings different aspects of his career into his teachings, together with enthusiasm, creativity and lots of humor.
