Trust- a waves & Heartbeat level 5Rhythms®
retreat in Greece
4th to 9th September 2021
~How do we trust our feet again and turn the memory of our trips over in to the dance?
~How do we trust our heart again despite the scars sculpted by the heartbreaks it has inevitably experienced and let the flame rise again ?
~How do we trust the unpredictability of life and let things fall effortlessly in to place?
~How do we trust the feeling of joy and expansion without expecting something to
~How do we trust the spirit and the wisdom bigger then our single self ? The mystery .
During the workshop we will be practicing allowing the fear and anxiety to dissolve and to move into a place of trust. We will explore the possibility of trusting that we won’t go off the road just because we cannot see around the bend. Opening to the possibility of trust that we will be able to see, understand and define our experiences as they unfold in the present.
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. Centring ourselves instead of floating away in our fantasies or being devoured by our thoughts.
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).
We will be supported and nurtured by the wild, unspoilt nature of Ikaria. Arrive early and stay longer to enjoy all that the island has to offer and tune in to the relaxed, flowing rhythm of life.

"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
