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

TREE TIME
standing like a tree - workshop
The tree is the central motif of this one-day workshop.
By the use of ancient nature-based practices,
we tune with and sense from within the natural elements, such as the soil, the air, the water, the fire and the wood.

Just like a tree, we explore how to stand in a balanced way in between the heaven and earth and we get intimate with the fundamental forces evoked by the tree's life cycle:

soil
seed
rooting
sprouting

verticality
spreading
branching
flowering

We engage in simple and powerful practices, such as:
- still chi kung (zhan zhuang, archetypical postures for health)
- slow movement
- walking chi kung
- partner work with each other and with the trees.

This training makes available:

- simple and efficient practices that you can take home and integrate in your daily life
- experiences which boost the immune system, support nervous system regulation, grounding, connection and increased aliveness
- increased felt-sense awareness
- exploration and play around what it means to be part of the web of relatedness connecting all living beings

This workshop unfolds throughout the four seasons, both inside and outside the studio, located in the heart of Amstelpark.

It’s open to all levels of practice, and no previous chi kung experience is required.

Let's meet with the trees!
