LIGHT AND SHADOW Movements of the Mind

Self-Exploration and Development through Holotropic Breathwork, Meditation in the Style of Zen & Circle Work

December 9 - 12, 2021
Gut Sedlbrunn, Pöttmes (close to Augsburg), Germany

"Only gradually did I come to understand what the mandala actually is: creation - transformation, of the eternal sense eternal entertainment. And that is the self, the wholeness of personality."

Carl Gustaf JUNG

"Meditation means transformation, transformation of the man predominantly turned towards the world, living from his mere nature and in the conditioned of the world to the new man, who is consciously anchored in his being and is able to express this in his recognition, shaping and loving in the world in freedom.." 

Karlfried Graf DÜRCKHEIM

We would like to invite you to take a "time-out" from everyday life, to "throw off the ballast", to come to rest and to reconnect to your centre in silence, to relax and reflect on your own strength, your own essence and the deep connection to the WORLD and that which holds us together: LOVE and COMPASSION. This is an opportunity to EXPLORE, rediscover and reorient your own feelings, needs, visions and passions through transformation and integration of old issues in the encounter with YOUR SELF, OTHERS and the ONE.

The EXPLORATORIUM offers you a ritualized, protected and safe framework and at the same time a free and wide space in which you - alone and together with others - can explore an inner and outer PROCESS, which brings you into contact with your LIGHT AND SHADOW sides, your lived and perhaps not yet lived inner being impulses and self parts and your natural liveliness, your CORE of BEING, that what we call the MOVEMENTS OF THE MIND.

The four days of the EXPLORATORIUM will take place in relaxed and concentrated silence. MEDITATION in the style of Zen will support your process. HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORKTM will bring us into contact with our deepest core. It is a profound, proven, self-organizing and processual path through a non-ordinary state of consciousness to explore, transform and develop towards wholeness. Every person will have the opportunity to breathe holotropic at least once and to accompany the breather once. The sharing round offers the opportunity to share and express what has been experienced. Additional processing, if necessary, and the promotion of the integration of the experienced for everyday life takes place in the CIRCLE.

Experience in Holotropic Breathwork is not required. All people who feel addressed are very welcome.

"He who perceives both, its shadow and its light,

sees himself from two sides and with that he comes into the middle."

Carl Gustaf JUNG

"The more you know yourself, the more clarity there is. 

Self-knowledge has no end - you don't come to an achievement, you don't come to an conclusion. It's an endless river."


The workshop will be held in German and English.
