SURRENDER - a 5Rhythms® Waves Workshop with Silvija Tomcik

  • Presidio Performing Arts Center 386 Moraga Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94129 United States (map)


Chaos. The rhythm of absolute surrender and a deep letting go. We disappear in the dance but first our ego needs to get out of the way. The dance happens without us controlling it. We release and shake everything that we hold on to, everything that burdens us and celebrate the no mind state. We will dance each of the 5 Rhythms from the Chaos’s side, practising to soften at the point when we are ready to let go, to surrender, to blossom. Moving through all the layers of who we think we are, and what we think is important – being called by the centre of all and everything where our power grows when we surrender another layer and we become again.

Chaos is the marriage of the masculine and feminine. The surrendering of the lovers. Here we practice being awake, centered in the midst of a storm and things falling apart.. We give ourselves to the wildness of a dance that can never be planned or repeated.

"We dance to reclaim our brilliant ability to disappear in something bigger, something safe, a space without a critic or a judge or an analyst. The beat is a lover that never disappoints and, like all lovers, it demands 100% surrender. It has the power to seduce moves we couldn’t dream. It grabs us by the belly, turns us inside out and leaves us abruptly begging for more." ~ Gabrielle Roth
