There are two things that fill my heart with a special kind of energetic love – dancing in nature and hosting workshops. Luckily, festivals are spaces where doing both is possible. In addition, I like to contribute to those warm-hearted communities in which we are able to create a microcosm of the world we want to live in.
No matter how big your festival is and even if it is just a friend gathering or your birthday party, I would be more than happy to spread some good vibes with a workshop!
Dreaming Journey – Imagine, you are old and have had a perfect life. How would you live? How do people interact in your world? And what is your contribution to this perfect society? During a 30-minute long dreaming journey, you will find answers to those questions. You will create a world of your dreams and explore it. Combined with some elements of meditation practices, you will be guided on this journey with my voice and some music. It is up to you how the world of your dreams look like. This guided dreaming journey is a wonderful practice to fill yourself up with energy, to find out what values are important for you and how to implement them in your everyday life. My favourite communication method will help you to share your experience with the people around you.
Tree of Life Meditation (for beginners) – During this 45-minute long guided meditation, we will connect our bodies to mother earth and the universe. We will fill ourselves up with beautiful light and energy that will make us flow and glow. This meditation is perfect for people who are not very familiar with meditations yet. You will explore the spiritual energy of your body while using images inspired my the nature that surrounds us. After this meditation you will be cleansed and energized. The positive thing: Once you found out how to turn on your inner light, you will always be able to find, expand and intensify your glow. A glow that makes you happy and supports you whenever you need it.
Cacao Circles – During my two-months stay in Mexico and Guatemala I learned from some Maya keepers of time how to guide cacao ceremonies. This ritual is perfect to reach a natural high, to open your heart and to connect with the people around you just by drinking pure raw cacao. This practice can be combined with meditation, singing, ecstatic dance or a massage workshop, depending on the time and circumstances. When you prepare Cacao in a certain way, it works as a medicine, nurturing your body with magnesium, iron and other healthy ingredients, it is detoxifying and contains a lot of serotonin and endorphins. What activity could fit better to a festival?
Flow Writing – Let’s assume that everybody has a vision or a dream in life, a project you always wanted to create, this plan B, C or D that you have in mind in case you’ll quit your job one day. Flow Writing is a 30-minute workshop of intuitive writing that helps you to analyse your current life situation and gives you impulses on how to turn your dream into reality. Strongly connected to the practise of U-Journaling, everybody takes something out of this workshop. A festival, where creative people gather is a space where synergies can be created – ideal circumstances to take that first step to bring your vision into reality.
Active Listening – “I believe that we can change the world, if we start listening to another again”, said the wise women Margaret Wheatley. If a festival is a space, where we can prototype the microcosm in which we want to live in, communication is the basis to create an appreciative and loving environment. Using a couple of exercises, participants get to experience honest conversation, sharing and active listening. What will we talk about? About our dreams and feelings of course. The rest is up to you. But don’t worry, I will assure that everybody leaves the workshop tent with a good feeling and at least three new friends.
