We recommend that you take a bottle of water that can be closed, a notebook and a pen. You can also bring coloured pencils if you want. Usually you don't need anything else.
DISCOVER INNER DEPTHS THROUGH THE DANCE!
When I started dancing 5Rhythms I was searching--searching for anything that could take me out of myself. I was mentally unstable, dissociated & addicted. I had been deeply traumatized by life up to that point and I truly just wanted out: out of reality, out of my body, out of my story.
Ironically, life answered my prayer with a practice that brought me in, in, and then further in.
It was the dance that gifted me the truth of myself. Dance gave me the right to exist, to take up space, to have a voice, & to lead. Dance re-membered me my soul, that vital kernel of truth that ecstatically basks in existence at any given moment, no matter what's happening on the surface. Dance taught me to pray, to create, to surrender spontaneously.
Mackenzie is a psychologist & a Certified 5Rhythms® Teacher.
She is a soul scientist, thought-rebel, & renegade dreamer. An embodiment enthusiast, she shows an inspired dedication to learning & experiencing truth through the experience of her own body. No stranger to darkness, she gathers strength from years of spelunking in the caves of her own murky shadow. She delights in the intersection between body & mind, relishes paradox, & takes comfort in walking the edge. A student of her body, depth psychology, the Enneagram, & nonduality, she is dedicated to growth & freedom for all beings.
She is a researcher, writer, & teacher with almost two decades of experience in the personal development & the human potential movements.
She is currently a training candidate at the International School of Analytical Psychology & a doctoral candidate at Sofia University. She was certified as a 5Rhythms® teacher in 2014, holds a masters degree in Clinical & Counseling Psychology & a certificate in Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy from The Center for Optimal Living. Her undergraduate research focused on Child & Adolescent Psychology, Rites of Passage, and spiritual development. Above all, she is committed to living a life of radical responsibility & igniting freedom in any and all beings brave enough to truly want it.
To her work as a coach, therapist, & 5Rhythms® teacher she brings a unique blend of insight, clarity, charm & wisdom. She swears by the life philosophies memento mori & serio ludere [remember I die & serious play]. Her relentless strength, hard won resilience, and fortitude in the face of suffering provide refuge for dancers & clients alike. A consummate student, she is nigh-constantly engaged in some deeper learning or other, & approaches life with polymathic inquisitiveness. Due to both her academic adventures & personal voyages in the void, she is adept at holding space for people through their most challenging, scary, & chaotic times. She offers a genuine, tenacious presence, a compassionate, loving heart, and a bright, active mind to all who are ready to receive it.
Come and dive into depth of your personal shadows through the dance!

Frequently asked questions
It is convenient to wear lose and comfortable clothing in which you feel good. We recommend more layers, so that you can easily add or take off clothes for the time when you don't move. It could be useful to have a big scarf or blanket for sitting. We dance either barefoot or in soft dance shoes.
Hot water and tea will be available on the site - if you are not a fan of plastic cups, please bring your own mug with you. We don't have a good experience with nearby restaurants - it always takes a long time to get lunch for a big group and then it makes late arrival into the program. Therefore, we recommend that you have a light and easy to digest meal for the whole day. Also make sure to bring bottle of water and small snacks (biscuits, muesli bars, fruits, nuts etc.)
It is best to get to the tram stop "Strážní" (trams 9, 1 and 11), take "Strážní" street to the left to continue uphill. At the intersection of the streets "Strážní" and "Na Balkáně", on the right, you will see a small white building of DDM ULITA. It takes about 30 minutes to get there from the city center.
