Workshops


Primal Feelings - Healing Our Inner Child

Komala de Amorim (Brazil)

17th – 19th of November 2017

Most of the difficulties we find, as adults in relating to people, to life and to ourselves has its origin in the first seven years of our lives. When, at those early ages, we didn’t receive the love, care and touch that is every child’s primary need, and many times instead we have been punished, not accepted and/or neglected, we create protective layers in order not to feel the hurt. Those layers – that manifests in our physical, energetic and mental bodies – cover our essential qualities and the true potential we are all born with.


Manipulation up to the sky

Zita Pavlištová

Saturday 18th November 2017, Brno

Movement improvisation workshop, bodily play through which we try to find a perfect physical connection. It’s surprising how pleasant it can be to manipulate each other.

This event is a little return for anybody interested in movement, contact improvisation, dance or martial arts who wants to discover more about how to communicate in physical contact, explore new ways and enjoy the summertime together.

In the focus of consciousness

Ruslan Baranov, Marina Baranova

We connect with our sexual energy as the natural and instinctual force that connects and creates, and from there we open our hearts for all the pain, the joy and the longing that we carry in our body and mind. Opening for healing and for deeper intimacy with ourselves, with life and with the principle of creation.


Opening your Voice

Komala de Amorim (Brazil)

4th - 6th May 2018

The voice is one of the most important instruments for human expression. The singing voice is spontaneous, not logical, primal, and is a very direct vehicle to express our inner reality. Voice is a journey through our human potential, by connecting and expressing the wide and rich range of sounds we have within. This exploration goes from the lowest sound of physical strenght of first chakra, to the vitality and playfulness in the belly, to the power and presence of solar plexus, to the gentle sounds of love in the heart, to the creative space of the throat, to the high frequency of the 6th chakra, up to the highest and silent vibration of the seventh chakra. Discovering and exploring the sounds coming from the different energy centers in the body we reconnect and express our physical, emotional and mental states, bringing clarity, joy and silence to our being.

Die Before You Die

Komala de Amorim (Brazil)

26th - 28th of October 2018

Death is an organic, integral part of life. Because of fear, we create a division between life and death. We cling to the past, our beliefs and memories, and to the future, the desires and dreams, and we experience life only mentally, losing the true reality of what we are. To die and to be born is a Sufi paradox, the understanding that death and life happens each moment. The death of what we believe we are, in its different manifestations is necessary for recognizing our true nature, so that we can be totally alive.
