"Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky"
(Kahlil Gebran)

TREE TIME
standing like a tree - seasonal openings in Amstelpark
"Tree Time" has the tree as it's central motif and aims for a communal movement rooted in stillness.
By way of standing like a tree (still chi kung or zhan zhuang), you will be introduced and invited to explore from the inside the fundamental forces represented by the tree's life cycle:

soil
seed
rooting
sprouting
verticality
spreading
branching
flowering

The Tree Time seasonal openings in Amstelpark are offered in collaboration with De Meditatietuin.

This openings are meant for everyone who wishes to nurture greater vitality and health by way of cultivating an embodied and heart-felt conversation with nature.

We practice outside, in the context of intentional and direct relationship with the elements, specially the trees.

We engage in simple, ancient and nature-based practices, such as:

- still chi kung (zhan zhuang, archetypical postures for health)
