Men´s Journey: Authenticity, Honesty, Openness

with Thierry Francois and Martin Steixner

Each man is my mentor

Each man is my teacher

Each man is my brother

Each man is a mirror

This Journey is an ongoing workshop over three weekends in the course of a year. It’s also about the inner and outer voyage that continues in the intervals between our gatherings. We´ll use the movement practices of 5Rhythms and Soul Motion as a vehicle of discovery.


Throughout this journey we will create a frame and space to explore, to raise awareness,  to grow, share, to learn and just to be. 

The work is based on the 5Rhythms®, Soul Motion®, on Gestalt Therapeutic tools and the Mens joining the group. 

It is represented by Thierry, Actor, Psychotherapist and accredited 5Rhythms Teacher from Croatia(/France, and Martin, Trager Facilitator, Imago Coach and  accredited Soul Motion Teacher from Austria. 

Both of us are leading workshops and groups, including men only groups for many years. We are very much looking forward to this piece of cooperation and co-creation in a safe and sacred space of men who are willing to explore their inner being, their strength and tenderness, their light and shadow, their role and responsibility as men in the 3rd millennium.


We will explore the freedom in and through our body as we expand our abilities to move wild and freely, soft and conscious. We will extend our awareness of our soul and her longings.


The Men´s Journey is based on 3 Modules where we focus on one of our main landscapes: Body, Soul and Spirit. We will create a safe space, a container, solid enough that we feel ready to dive, to jump into the unknown of being a man.


The Men´s Journey is an ongoing experiment. All modules together are a the full journey. As we want to keep it as flexibel you are open to jump in whenever you are able and willing.

About Thierry:

Around the age of  20, I met the theatre. It was like a revelation and I felt a strong desire to play and to be on stage. To play, to say, to be touched, to express, to share, to transmit.


I completed my training with several other practices such as dance, mime, clown. Then on my path, I met the Gestalt therapy, a humanist method which gives flesh to the words.


In Paris, and  in Zagreb, I keep on seeing people, in individual therapy and in groups, as a Gestalt therapist.  At the beginning of the 2000’s, I met 5Rhythms dance. I remember that I was a little reluctant to go to a class and that I was totally won over when I came out as it perfectly satisfied my need to integrate the body in my practice.


I started to go dancing occasionally, then more regularly, then in a more addicted way by going elsewhere exploring dance, in other countries, other cultures, other teachings. In 2009, I’ve been accepted to attend the US training for new 5Rhythms teachers. And then there is also this Men work that I love to be a part of as a leader. Above all that, I like to say that I put all these resources in my practice with enthusiasm and that I like communicate my passion with humor, lightness and creativity.

About Martin:

Born 1961 in the Tyrolian Mountains, I discovered free dance at he age of 20, studying Philosophy in Vienna.

I began leading groups very early in my life, teaching Druidic and ancient European knowledge including conscious movement, meditation and healing arts.

Later I was guiding journeys and group travels in Austria, South America and Morocco and offered several  men workshops including annual cycles.


2005 I came in contact with 5Rhythms. Dancing intensively for some years with various national and International teachers, my path lead me to Soul Motion.

I finished my Soul Motion Training, with Vinn Arjuna Martí in the US in 2014.


Besides being Soul Motion Teacher, I am natural health professional, Master of Public Health, Imago Facilitator and Trager Practitioner, father of 4 children and grandfather..


I am offering Soul Motion Classes in Austria and Workshops, connecting conscious movement and body work in Austria, Germany, Italy, India and wherever I am invited.
