ORIGINAL CAMPAIGN from Spring 2017:

I hope you enjoyed watching the video as much as I enjoyd dancing for you to reach out for your support of my further education. To become a teacher of this praxis I need “a little help of my friends”.
I thought, if just ask all my friends, family & tribe for a donation of 7,20€ . That would make my life-change possible, wouldn't it? Will you help me?
                                                                                                                                                          in Deutsch hier
Who am I? Let me introduce me to you:
My Name is Sonja Hellmann and back in 2003 I stumbled accidentally into a 5Rhythms-exploration-group & never stopped practicing. 
Many of you know me as an artist (painting & performance), art therapist & teacher and mother of two gorgeous boys. I'm dancing since teenage years  different styles like standard & latin-american, jazzdance, modern dance, contact improvisation and I'm the founder of „LichtschachT – art investigation “.

With help of the 5Rhythm-maps I become more able to understand all-me and I am continuously do so, to develop myself towards my true inner self. I dance to become more comfortable being me. I even danced and sung my -now 8years old- son into this world. I danced through love- and life-crises, found myself crying out a river and planting seeds of new, flying in the lights of your eyes and spreading smiles from the nourishring depth of our hearts.

5Rhythms is a moving meditation based on five universal rhythms that flow through our lives. Together they build
a WAVE: FLOWING_STACCATO_CHAOS_LYRICAL_STILLNESS. A way to become conscious through dance as each of these rhythms has the capacity to teach, catalyze, and even heal. "If you just set people in motion they'll heal themselfs." G.R.
You can experience more in this touching video  and on www.

Now the sweet and strong urge of giving back is calling me. 

To become a 5Rhythms - teacher I need a training which last one year. I could already effort one third of it, which means a part of the training fee and all costs for the 1st Module (in Garrison, NY, USA this April! whoop whoop !) and technical equipment, passport, first aid course, readings etc..
NOW I need to raise in the next days & weeks:
3.800$       for the pending part of the training fee 
700€           for 2nd Module flights, bed & food in Zagreb, Croatia (Oct.'17)
2.000€       for 3rd Module flights, bed & food in Salt Lake City, USA (Apr.'18)
                       + GoFundMe fee, costs + taxes ...
So that means in total I need 7.000€. But truly, any donation is deeply appreciated and helpful! And be sure for any kind of support my everlasting wholehearted gratitude will reach you!

And to sweeten your support even more, you'll receive as Thank-you-gift
15€ - 34,99€        a physical postcard of one of my art works, a rarity in these e-times :)
                                     see some possibilities on my website
35€ - 54,99€        a postcard with 1 Ticket either for a 5Rhythm-Waves-class held by me
                                     or for creative meeting "Mondatelier" for  Ladys only ;)
55€ - 104,99€     a Set of Postcards (5-9-14 cards) from the Tibet-Series “prayer for ___”
                                      or the celtic-series “Archeypes of the Soul” or both 
105€ - 204,99€  a compilation of my actual favourite music to dance a wave at your home
205€ - 554,99€  1 Ticket either for a 5Rhythms Waves level workshop of mine or a place
