The energizing and grounding workshop mixes dynamic meditation, techno and psychoanalysis as a shared "question incubation". We examine a topic selected together through various body activations – with the help of pumping rave beats. We zoom into age-old techniques of ecstasy and look for a mindshift through the body. How does the question look like at the end of a two-hour portal? Bring something to write with.
