- a waves & Heartbeat level 5Rhythms®
retreat in Greece
7st to 12th September 2018
'Stepping into the fire of our emotions, brings up our true power.'
The courage is the measure of our heartfelt participation with life, with another, with a community, a work; a present moment and the future. To be courageous is not necessarily to achieve anything except to make conscious those things we already feel deeply and then to live through the unending vulnerabilities of those consequences. The maturity that robust vulnerability is a way forward, the real invitation and the surest, safest ground from which to step.
It takes courage to let our feelings flow without over favouring and fantasising about them. It takes courage to remain open hearted in the face of pain or grief and open to the other when there is fear and anger, or in the midst of conflict and hear the other’s needs and desires. It takes courage to show up with our vulnerabilities, and ultimately to love. It takes courage to live full-heartedly.
We will use the 5Rhythms® to sink deeper into our bodies and hearts on the beautiful, rejuvenating island of Ikaria.
We will spend the first three days grounding ourselves in the body and the Waves level. We will use the body parts as gateways into each of the 5Rhythms (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness) and invite awareness of our sensations, temperature, weight and pulsing of our bodies.
This exploration of physical embodiment prepares us for the rest of the retreat where we will explore the emotions of the Heartbeat™ map: Fear that protects, Anger that defends, Sadness that releases, Joy that uplifts and Compassion that unites us.
This Workshop is open to all, though we strongly recommend you attend at least one 5Rhythms class before you join us.
The retreat counts towards future 5Rhythms trainings (3 days Waves, 3 days Heartbeat).
There will be plenty of free time to enjoy the wonderful holistic beach resort. You can arrive early and stay longer, we recommend spending a few days in this Blue Zone, exceptional Island, you won't regret it!

"Like I said on our last sharing, it is incredible what we can create in a few days. 13, people from almost as many nations coming so close to each other, sharing feelings, tears, sweat, laughter, personal stories out of which springs so much love! Much of this thanks to Kat´s commitment and knowledge in what she is doing, her wonderful music, what a DJ! And she was pushing and pushing until my body screamed and then suddenly I was up dancing some wild dance again to new rhythms. And there was Piero backing Kat up, with wonderful drumming, sounds and presence. And with Taras patience and loving willingness to organize and help with everything, I really felt at ease and had so little to worry about, just dance and enjoy.' -Friderik
