„​For our life to succeed - experiencing spiritual basic attitudes in the body“

Tuesday Evening 19:15 - 21:45

Details

Inspired by the same named book, we will draw from the experience and wisdom of the old monks like Franz from Assisi, Ignatius from Loyola and Benedict as well as from nuns like Hildegard from Bingen, Therese from Lisieux and Maria Ward. Their basic attitudes to life we will embody and we will move thru their revelations. It’s a matter of important experiences that help us cope more easily with the challenges of life. They show us the way to more contentment and joy.

The good thing is that we don´t have to go through the same things they did but rather we can learn from those, that went ahead of us and dealt with the adversaries of everyday life. In some we will recognize ourselves and others will appear new to us. ​It is going to get interesting to experience, how they mastered personal, spiritual and social crisis of their times with the help of God. A quarter, that will encourage us in this day and age of viruses to stay true to ourselves, to dance to our own melodies and to dare venturing into new things.

“Always try to keep open a piece of heaven in your heart”

Tuesday Evening 19:15 - 21:45

Details

When temperatures drop and a cold wind is hissing outside, we draw back into our own heart, to attend to its heartbeat, to explore and listen to what it really needs...

...as we dance through the following questions:

  • What helps me to find rest, to calm down, to feel at home with myself and to enjoy it?
  • How can we implement an oasis and actually experience heaven – together - as well as individually?
  • Where can I create more space in my heart and dispose of old junk?

According to Isaiah 9 as we approach the Christmas season, we will dive into His light and celebrate the wonderful counsellor, the almighty God, the eternal Father, and the Prince of Peace.

Through breathing-, awareness- and body exercises we get more sensitive in our perception of ourselves as well as for heavenly encounters. We find new forms of body expressions in dancing freely and using creative media go on an exploratory trip. Together as a group we will be amazed at the inspirations emerging for our every day lives.

Perspectives

Tuesday Evening 19:15 - 21:45

Details

How can I get from my tunnel view to an eagle’s perspective, from navel gazing to new outlooks on the future?
Focussing on perspectives we will be dancing thru next quarter from summer into fall while we reflect on our own views as well as on those from society and from God.

  • How do they affect each other and me?
  • Am I more the introspective type or do I rely more on the outside worldview?

We will be experimenting with the micro – and microcosmos and research how detailed movements as well as broad movements alter our own personal view.

  • What kind of life situations trigger a tunnel view?
  • How can I rid myself off fixations?
  • What helps me not to stay stuck in the swamp or in old patterns / views?
  • Where do I rather look away and when do I rather dwell on my past than to move forward?
  • Where do I I need a change of perspective or an extended view?

All these questions we will hand over to our body who will be putting them into movement and surprise us with answers.

"Do something nice for your body
so that your soul will want to live in it.
": Teresa von Avila

This quarter leading up to summer we will give our full attention to your body.

We will focus on topics like acceptance, beauty ideals, self-care and we will train ourselves for a more positive way to deal with ourselves.

The following questions will lead us thru the course:

  • How do I feel at home in my body?
  • What is my body biography?
  • Where do I just use my body?
  • How do I deal with weakness and pain?
  • How can I generate a more loving attention towards myself?
  • What does my body good and what is rather harmful?
  • How can I befriend my body anew?

Self-awareness as well as relaxation exercises, new ideas plus movement inputs and sharing within the group will help enhance a more positive relationship with your own body.
