SOMATIC WORK includes practises which sharpen the focus on body-regulations entering a
space of slow movement and witnessing. Techniques are inspired by Continuum Movement, Authentic Movement, Body-Mind-Centering, Middendorf Breathing and Somatic Yoga. Somatic Practices will mostly be used to connect on deeper levels with the nature around and in us as a gateway to EcoSensuality.
SYSTEMIC CONSTELLATION will be used as complex tool to create transparency of emotional patterns and connective concepts. Taking the possibility of having certain aspects of our identities or questions represented in someone or something else may invite unconscious experiences to appear on a tangible surface. During our time we will use constellations mostly in a playful setting unlike typical family constellation work.
PLAY will be used as toolset of games, open scores and storytelling to change patterns with a smile, to evoke curious interactions, connecting with our inner child, as well as opening another platform for intimacy and authenticity.
HIKING captures most of the discovery time in a few day-long trips, night walks, mostly dressed up but occasionally naked, with ritual interventions, games, meditations and visits to luscious tavernas.
SKILL-WORKSHOPS offer a creative connection with the island and its organic treasures, like an introduction into herbalism and oracle-creation and of course we won’t miss on BODYWORK and INTAMICY
Who is it for?
An intimate group of not more than 12 curious protagonists.
The participation has no restriction concerning gender, age and sexual orientation.
We ask you however to arrive with open hearts to dive and space into unkown spheres. This exploration is clearly not for anyone afraid of heights - literally - and metaphorically- only in case you want to face your fears.
We expect you to act out of a place of self-care and self-responsibility as well as honouring your boundaries.
We also assume that you share our interest for care, respect, communication and consensual behaviour within the group.
On the rocky island of Amorgos in the Aegean sea,
blessed with bright light and clear blue waters,
abysses and heights.
Amorgos is an island of incredible touching nature, historical magic geometry shown in ruins. Mythology has it the island used to be a place to seek answers at the - now hidden and lost - water oracle.
We'll be staying in a secluded ecological and at the same time very magical fancy villa in the outskirts of the artisan village Chora, nearby a graveyard, the main monastery, caves and wild sage. The house is facing an energetic rock in the midst of wild waves and a cliff that welcomes skinny dippers. As far as you can see, the sea and deserted treasures.
