Self-Translated - a playful mindful celebration
Let’s move together! In this dancing session, we dive separately-together into a physical-abstract journey. We learn how to listen to our body-knowledge, practice handy Mudra’s “power-stations”, set our intentions, shake to sweat mental baggage, and expand our mutual heart. Dressed-up or wear casual, come as perfect as you are! These inclusive sessions are exclusively addressed to all types of GBTQ men.
(The sessions are lead in English and will be simultaneously interpreted to Sign-Language for our Deaf brothers.)

the Heart of Experience - a mindful discussion
How can we fully embrace the invitation for self-observation resulted from the world pandemic? What is our collective mission as love-ambassadors these days? Can we first come to terms with ourselves and redefine our freedom? Let’s revive the inner dialogue with our Sacred Animals and discuss all that is vital for our wellbeing.
