"Waves are the practice of water. To speak of waves without water is a delusion. Water and waves are one. Great spirit and small spirit are one." Shunryu SUZUKI
"Love is the affinity that connects and unites the elements of the world. Love is indeed the means of universal synthesis." Pierre TEILHARD DE CHARDIN
We would like to invite you to a "time out" from everyday life, a "throwing off ballast", a coming to rest and into the center in silence, a relaxation and reflection on your own strength, your own essence and the deep relationship to the WORLD, what keeps it together and alive: LOVE and COMPASSION. With the possibility of EXPLORATION, rediscovery and reorientation of your own feelings, needs, visions and passions with the transformation, resolution and integration of old issues in the encounter with YOUR SELF, OTHERS and the ONE.
The EXPLORATORY (space for exploration from lat. explorare: to explore, to discover) offers a ritualized, protected and safe framework and at the same time a free and wide space to go relaxed - alone and together with others - on an inner and outer path, on a DEVELOPMENT PROCESS that brings you to your LIGHT and SHADOW SIDES, your lived and perhaps not yet lived inner being impulses and self parts - your core of being - and your original aliveness, the MOVEMENTS OF THE MIND.
The metaphor of light and shadow, originally used by C.G. Jung, stands for the conscious and unconscious dynamics of our psyche: The parts that are lived in the light and thus manifestly and obviously lived in behavior and the - for whatever reason - not lived, hidden, denied or split off soul parts in the protection of the shadow. Not lived and therefore not expressed shadow parts have the habit to develop a momentum of their own, a life of their own, in the background. Thus they elude our conscious control, they are not available to us to live our lives fully and completely and we deny our own nature.
The weekend takes place in relaxed and concentrated silence. MEDITATION in the style of Zen and HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK support your PROCESS and bring you into CONTACT and touch with your deepest core. This is a proven, deep, self-organizing and organic-process way to explore, feel, transform and evolve YOUR SELF towards wholeness through an extraordinary and non-ordinary state of consciousness.
On Friday evening there will be an introduction and practical attunement to breathwork and meditation. Each person will have the opportunity to breathe holotropically once on Saturday and accompany one person in doing so. The sharing session on Saturday evening will provide an opportunity to share and express what was experienced in the breathing session. Further processing and facilitation of the development process and integration of what was experienced into everyday life will take place on Sunday morning in the CIRCLE.
The EXPLORATORY is planned as an ongoing yearly group with 6 to 10 participants and offers the possibility to promote the inner development process continuously over a longer period of time. Participation is possible in individual events, as space is available.
Experience in Holotropic Breathwork and meditation is not required. If you have any questions contact me.
The EXPLORATORY is in German and, if needed, in English.
"The darkness, the emptiness, the space that the mind is afraid to enter, is the beginning of all life. It is the womb of being. Go with it in love, and when you do, it is immediately taken from you, and you experience the birth of light. The Tao does not take sides. It embraces both darkness and light. They are the same." Byron KATIE
