Weekend workshop Led by Silvija Tomčik, Croatia
March 15 - 17, 2024
** waiting list **

There is a part of our mind that is wired and conditioned to seek permission. As we grow up we seek the permission from the outside, and in our maturity it comes the time to start giving ourselves that permission from the inside. Permission to be ourselves.  Permission to move. Permission to feel. Permission to breathe so we can co-create with great mystery our own life experiences, and so there is less space for blame and excuses. Being able to feel and express so many different emotions is what makes the human experience so astonishing. Giving yourself permission to fully experience whatever state you may be in is one of the most cathartic, purifying things you can do. Emotions are important messengers that give us the answers we long for. 

We will immerse more deeply into the medicine of the Flowing Rhythm; and all its Rhythms, that supports us in giving ourselves the permission of being and how to follow it fully. We will find our roots deeper in the Courage that can ground any fear we have, especially the fear to feel our hearts.

Silvija Tomčik, Zagreb
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 the Waves Teacher Training with Gabrielle in 2001, and the Heartbeat Teacher Training in 2010. 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. Silvija is a clear, soft, grounded, passionate, experienced and committed teacher.
