Full Moon Cacao Ceremony & Sound Bath
with Angelika Höfner
Friday, January 10th
7:00 – 10:00 pm

In this Sacred Cacao Ceremony, Angelika opens and holds a sacred healing space, feeling what the group and each individual needs to get into a relaxed and deep state where healing can happen, the heart can break away from old injuries. where we lovingly align ourselves to what is really essential in our lives and what to do so that we can achieve that – as a creator of our lives. She leads you into a state of relaxation and then into a very illustrative form of meditation. During the process, the cacao gradually unfolds its effect, helping you gently release blockages, open your heart, and let the energy flow.

Tantric Dance Flow – Lebendigkeit bezaubert!
with Günther Enzi
Friday, January 17th
6:00 – 9:00 pm

 

Tantra ist pulsierende Lebensfreude – Mit 20-30 gleichgesinnten Menschen eintauchen in die atemgetragene und absichtslose pulsierende Lebendigkeit in Dir selbst und im offenen Raum von Begegnung, Berührung, Bewegung, Tanz, Kontakt, Verbundenheit, Intensität und Stille im fließenden Sein.

Neugieriges und kreatives Vortasten und Zulassen von befreiender Lebendigkeit aus sich selbst heraus und im Kontakt mit anderen.

Ankommen in natürlicher Spannkraft von Lebendigkeit.

Achtsam, sicher und fürsorgend sein für individuelle Grenzen im Erleben von verbundener Lebendigkeit bei sich selbst und mit anderen. Und achtsames Rückverbinden aus verunsichernder Unverbundenheit in den sicheren Fluss der Lebendigkeit. (Ampel-Regeln)

Gemeinsam einen Raum einladen und zulassen für spielerische, heitere, staunende und berührende Lebendigkeit. Sich von der lebendigen Offenheit in jedem Augenblick neu bezaubern lassen – das ist “Tantric Dance Flow”.

Zur Unterstützung dieses “absichtslosen tantrischen Flow-Raumes” gestalten wir zuerst ein “Warmup” zum Ankommen bei sich selbst und im Kontakt mit den Anderen und erklären die Ampel-Regel.

Die “Dance-Flow-Phase” findet in drei Tanz-Wellen statt wobei es zwischen den einzelnen Tanz-Wellen kurze integrative “Einkehr-Zeiten” in Stille gibt.

Ein Abschlusskreis zum Teilen der Flow-Erfahrung als sprachlicher Klang-Ausdruck runden und schließen den Tantric Dance Flow ab.

SCHAMANISCHE TROMMELTRANCE: SELBSTLIEBE
with Daniel Giuliani
Friday, January 24th
7:00 – 10:00 pm

Nach kurzen Vorübungen, um bei Dir anzukommen, findet die Trommeltrance in themenabhängigen Sonderfällen auch bewegt, meistens jedoch passiv im liegen statt. Das ermöglicht Dir, Dich voll und ganz auf Die Trommel einzulassen. Durch die Klänge der Trommel wirst Du in einen wachen Trancezustand geführt.
Grund dafür ist der sogenannte Alpha- und Thetawellenzustand, der durch die Schwingungsfrequenz der Trommel initiiert wird. Du brauchst keine Vorerfahrung.

MOVEMENT AND DANCE TRAINING
with Matan Levkowich
every Monday starting October 7th
7:15 – 9:15 pm in the Temple

 

Increase of Awareness

If the way you train contains only repetitive patterns that you do mindlessly, you might get some benefits but you are missing the most important ingredient – body awareness. Without increasing awareness there could not be a real change in the way you use your body. The MI classes are designed to help you increase your awareness to your body in stillness and more important, in motion.

Learning to fail

Failure and improvement go hand in hand. Humans learn movement by first failing at it. We did it as babies and we keep doing it as adults. Learning how to deal with failure in a positive manner is crucial point for long term success and improvement. In the MI classes we supply you with tools to understand failure and to become more and more independence in your learning process. At the end of the day, we know that you are your best teacher and we help you discover it.

Making it pleasurable

To keep you engage in the practice, we make sure that it is not only ‘good’ for you but that you will actually enjoy it while doing it. Everybody wants a healthy capable body but no one wants to do some boring, repetitive training routine.

The MI classes are playful and in constant evolution and change. In the classes you will play partner games, group tasks individual problem solving tasks to keep you fresh and interested. We understand that your time is valuable for you and we will make sure that you feel alive in every second!

Moving away from your comfort zone

You need to be challenged to keep evolving. Constant success represent failure in continued learning. But comfort zone is an individual thing, some needs to push more and some need to learn how to rest…

In the MI classes, we design the difficultly level according to each individual participant and we make sure that you will learn to recognise the borders of your capacity and learn how to exit your comfort zone in a safe and productive manner.
