Further Information for the workshops


The Workshop will take place on the floor of the room.
We will set up our little camps for this. This means that all participants will bring a mat, cushion and blanket and make themselves comfortable.

By journeying into our inner realms and moving in rather unusual forms of behavior and communication, we will enter a space that may confront us with the unexpected and sometimes difficult.
It is good to be aware of this.

The setting of the workshop is based on slowing down and mindfulness. This will support us not only to perceive the emerging processes but also to absorb and process them.
There will be quiet time and space for contemplation and reflection. There will be time for sharings and dialogue. Sometimes a lecture or a poem. We will move. We will sit or lie down. Breathe. Maybe someone will fall asleep.

If you realize that you don't want to take part in something or need a break in between, you can do so at any time. Self-care is an active contribution to the workshop.


Organizational matters
The entire seminar will take place on the floor of the room. We will set up our small camp for this.

Workshop Languages
The workshop will be held in a mix of German and English.
The content inputs comes in the form of text, audio or guided meditations. These are usually in English. The English is accessible in most cases and not academic vocabulary.
Depending on the mix of people, there will be a focus on English with selective translation into German or vice versa.
With your registration please indicate in which languages you can communicate.

Room preperation
The rooms must be prepared before each workshop weekend. 
For this I need 4 people to support me for max. 2 hours on the Friday before.

At the end of the workshop, everyone helps to clear everything back together.

Corona
Forsome of us it is still very important not to get corona. But other colds are also contagious and usually come at the wrong time and hit the immune system.
So if you are ill, please rest and stay home.
Please do a corona test before the workshop.
There will be hand sanitizer available at the tea station.

Costs
Participation is free of charge. However, there will be costs for material and transportation in preparation. To cover these costs, a donation box will be set up on site. Those who have more give more, those who have less give less.
