Nonviolent Communication

Jared Finkelstein (USA)

Saturday 29th of April 2017

Nonviolent Communication is a practical, learnable process that helps people put their attention on shared human values, which in turn connects us more deeply, more honestly, and more compassionately with ourselves and with others. Nonviolent Communication supports people to speak honestly in ways that others can hear compassionately, deepen their ability to listen to both themselves and others, learn skills to stay connected during difficult conversations, translate judgments and demands into words that connect. This workshop takes us into depths of the principles and practice of Nonviolent or Compassionate Communication. If you want to meet one of the best teachers, this workshop is the place where you get to the essence.

Jared Finkelstein (USA)

Opening your Voice

Komala (Brazil)

2nd - 4th June 2017

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.

Awakened Feminine

Komala (Brazil)

16th - 18th June 2017

A eight-month process of profound transformation of female sexuality and opening up to love and trust. In this training we invoke the power of the feminine energy through the Tantric Goddesses, channeling the love and wisdom of the “Big Mother” to guide us through the rich, powerful and challenging universe of our sexual energy. 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.

About Flying - Contact Improvisation

Adrian Russi (Switzerland)

30th August - 3rd September 2017

Myths, images and of course lots of dance practice: a workshop in Contact Improvisation with Adrian Russi. What are the images and phantasies that I carry in my mind about flying? What is needed as preparation for the flight and what will happen afterwards? How is all this working in a bird’s body? And how do I experience the moments of flight in my own dance? In this workshop we will explore how to use gravity, momentum and stable bodies in motion in order to reach lightness in flight. We will work with timing, body-communication and weight, your own as well as your partner’s – and we will experience that weight is first of all neutral. If it feels heavy or light depends on our inner attitude and on body intelligence – things that we can train and influence quite directly!

The Spiritual Aspect of Healing Process

Mike Boxhall (Great Britain)

11th - 14nd of January 2018

A posgraduate course primarily intended for professional therapists (craniosacral therapists, ostheopaths, physiotherapists, psychotherapists) as a praxis that opens a gate to different dimensions of treatment. The teaching continues where the concept of therapy and the knowledge of reached its limits. We will employ the way of work on a table inherent to craniosacral biodynamic therapy enriched with other levels of perception and the feedback. The intention of this course is to research on the spiritual aspects of therapy that are natural part of our embodied being. More than a lesson, it is thus a form of a collective praxis. A praxis, that leads to expanded consciousness and restores the connection with one’s essential qualities.
