Vision of Puma – an evening of exploring and discovery

The medicine of Puma teaches us how to bring out our power and fill our heart with it – in such a way that will enable you to take charge of your life! Puma teaches us about soft and powerful strides of movement, as she climbs up higher in the mountains, and broadens her vision.

So we are going to explore this grounded, soft and powerful movement, through the 5 Rhythms movement and sacred space held by Andean Nature Medicine.

Flowing. Muscular. From the inside outwards. Deeply connected to the self /to the body / to the ground.

And from there Puma moves into the 3 worlds. In the dance we will explore these levels of movement, and what animalistic movement can teach us about our core power!

Another shamanic collaboration with 2 highly experienced facilitators (Bio’s below). No previous experience of Andean medicine or 5 Rhythms movement is required – just an open heart and an open mind.

A great opportunity to taste the beautiful medicine created from combining these sacred arts. Join us as we journey from the ground up to the mountain peaks, until we open the hearts and broaden our vision.



A Ceremonial Journey Through the Elements


Next online workshop:  October 5th 2021
Facilitated by Karen Weinman & Jup Jansonius :
With ancient practices from the Q’eros of Andes mountains of Peru, and the dynamic movement medicine of 5 Rhythms, we’ll consciously weave and integrate the elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire through our inner realms!
Join us on this workshop as we travel through all the elements, returning ourselves to a place of harmony, creativity and balance with our inner nature.
At a time when we may be feeling off balance, disconnected and pulled in all directions, we really need nature and her power. This is an opportunity over 11 weeks, to give ourselves the space to take care and feel part of the whole again, in a heart-filled way.

Ground and embrace the Earth within

Soothe your Waters

BE the Fire

Cleanse and delight as the Air

Integrating and dancing your elements into harmony.

Your facilitators will hold the container and teach you ways that not only will bring a balance in the moment, but leave you with tools for the future.
Karen Weinman –a Pampamesayoq, Andean healer and priest, with 30 years experience facilitating transformation and nature-based teachings, will guide you through meditations and practices, introducing you to a path of connection with Pachamama and all of nature’s elements. The Andean tradition encourages us to remember our place in the family of nature.
And Jup Jansonius who has been dancing for 22 years, is an accredited 5 Rhythms Teacher who profoundly guides us through the 5 stages of flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness.
This shamanic movement practice of being IN your body- that ignites creativity, connection and community,
is a perfect match with the fundamentals of the Andean Tradition and nature!
Incorporating the energy & strength of each element with movement in our bodies and ancient Andean know-how,
to reconnect us to the nature-al wisdom of our bodies, to unleash healing power.
You need no experience in either modality, nor need to be a dancer.
Just a willingness to bring your body, mind and spirit present to this workshop with an openness
to the guidance of your facilitators -and Nature’s powerful wisdom!

To book your place, & more info:


We will use Zoom as our online channel, giving you the privacy of your own space.

For the movement sessions you will need to connect a (little) speaker to your computer, and create a space to be able to move in your kitchen, your hallway -your lounge. 

This series counts as 20 hrs elective towards the 5rhythms teacher training.

You don’t need a large space – be creative, and create your private altar space.  

Each fortnight we’ll interact within and dance with an energy of our inner nature element- supporting ourselves to travel home to our centre!

Jup Jansonius:

The 5Rhythms® is my medicine, my metaphor for life.
By getting in motion I relax, experience more strength and focus, am more creative and gain new insights and move lighter through tougher times. It silences thoughts that do not serve me and creates space for new insights. I live so I dance!

In 1998 I discovered the 5Rhythms® and have danced and followed workshops all over the world. Since 2014 I am an accredited teacher.
In 2018 I also got my accreditation for the Heartbeat level. Meanwhile I give workshops at home and abroad.
Besides dance, I give leadership and team trainings, yoga and am a DJ.


healing with firs element workshop
How beautiful this trip has been, to feel the elements both inside and outside of me. Know, live and experience its qualities within me. I feel that this process has just begun and I have the motivation to explore the earth, water, fire and air that are in me, and the benefits that being aware of it brings me, refining my intuition, listening to my feelings, attentive to dreams and the signs.
I feel a certain sadness to finish this cycle and say goodbye to you.
Thank you Karen for inspiring me, thank you Jup for guiding me, thank the group for opening your hearts.

I don’t think words can truly explain how I feel about this workshop, it felt more like a soul quest then a workshop to be honest. It really was a space of inner revelations, & feel enriched. Together with learning about the elements, it was about my body, being one with it and about movement for me. Thank you for being a part of my journey and learning. .
Karen & Jup, you are a phenomenal team, I cannot wait to see what you will have on offer next… Thank you for holding the space, guiding me and strengthening me through this beautiful journey, and of course for the words, the movement, the music & the practices.
Finally thank you to the elements for showing up and for Pachamama holding us so beautifully.

What a perfect combination, dance, free movement and nature! Thank you for birthing this in me and my life. 


I want to give heartfelt thanks to Karen and Jup. Together you created a sacred space for us to reach out beyond ourselves and find the nature of the elements, to be one with the elements, and then bring them within ourselves with dance and exploration.

You created space that was encouraging, supportive, mentoring and extraordinarily filled with love.

Thank you for also holding sacred that space that allowed each to be themselves, without judgement or criticism. We celebrated each other. I wish you all blessings, love to you all.


Thank you Karen and Jup for your support and guidance on this wonderful journey … and thank you to each and every one of you for the beautiful expression and sharing that you’ve brought in. My heart is open, my mind is calm, my feet are buzzing with excitement.
