Waves and Heartbeat Level
“CONTACT – INTIMACY – SEXUALITY”
Led by Silvija Tomčik, accredited 5Rhythms teacher
1st Module „CONTACT“ 05-07.05.2023.
2nd Module „INTIMACY“ 24-26.11.2023.
3rd Module „SEXUALITY“ 03-05.05.2024.
In “Contact” first we practice getting in touch, in contact with
ourselves, our being, through our bodies and our movement.
Then we explore different ways to be and move with each
other, learning and growing through the contact that happens.
“On the dance floor, meeting complete strangers in the beat, you have
the opportunity to rip off your mask and relax into the rhythm of connection.”
In “Intimacy” first we practice getting in touch, in contact with
our own heart, its openings and closings, its movement and
stillness, its emotional waves. Staying present and holding our
heart’s hand whatever it feels. Having developed this ability we
cross the bridge to meet another heart and its waves. Practicing
how to meet in all the different “faces” of the heart.
“Intimacy is an open path, a bridge between my heart and yours. We get
stuck on the bridge because we don’t want to pay these tolls: total
surrender to vulnerability, spontaneity, and an open, unguarded heart.”
In “Sexuality” first we practice getting in touch, in contact with
our own sexual energy, how it comes and goes, how it moves
inside of us and how it shapes our dance. Knowing more of this
essential life force inside of us, we have more ground and more
boundaries to meet the sexual energy of others who we meet at
the dance floor.
“If the heart is not free to experience the power of loving, if we are
emotionally blocked and holding back feelings, there is no way we can
experience total orgasm, or total well-being.” Gabrielle Roth
And we keep dancing it all, Wave after a Wave, clearing the
history, making space for present sensations and connections,
creating new highways inside of our body, heart and mind for
the life we want to live.
If you have reached a certain level in your practice, and if you are ready
for a new stage of insight, or you desire the continuity and cohesion that
this group is offering, this will give you time to explore the map of the
5Rhythms progressively and to connect deeply with other dancers in the
group who have the same commitment. During these 3 modules we will
be meeting the same group of people, so we can relax into it and
develop our relationships. This continuity creates a powerful group field
for our sharing and lerning.
Silvija Tomčik, was introduced 23 years ago to Gabrielle Roth’s teachings through her book Maps to Ecstasy.
