Chieming, Bavaria


Experience what it is like ...

to dive into the depths and the unknown of real togetherness.

… to explore the polarity of autonomy and connectedness.

to trust your perception, to show yourself with everything that is alive in you, in mindful relation with others.

What is Authentic Relating

Authentic Relating is the practice of expressing myself freely and honestly in relationships in the moment.
How am I experiencing myself right now? How do I experience my counterpart right now? How am I experiencing our relationship right now?

Through a safe and trusting space, we learn together to enter into deep connections and encounters in a playful way. The basis of the exercises give a clear framework and limits to open up.
I am challenged to really listen, to reflect, to be tangible and open, to perceive my personal responsibility and wishes, as well as to name and I learn new, peaceful ways to deal with conflicts.

In this shared, interactive, meditative research space, people meet in 2, 3, 4 or the whole group in several different exercises, which can also include movement, dance and touch.


What is Circling

Circling is a relational mindfulness practice – to direct our highest and subtlest attention to what is happening in our connections with others. As a practice, it leads to a deeper and more authentic sense of self, the freedom to show yourself in relationships and in the world as a deeper, truer version of yourself, the claim to your own personal leadership skills, insights into ourselves and how we are acting in the world and the ability to create deep, lasting, and impactful connections with others.

Circling is also a wonderful way to take our mindfulness practice away from the pillow and integrate it into everyday relationships. Instead of falling back into small talk or habitual types of relationship, we can identify, name, and explore what exactly is there in the connection. The more we practice, the more we circle, the more we learn how to bring that same level of presence and connection into all of our daily relationships, such as your friends, family, partners and clients. and inspire others to join you.

Circling based 5 simple principles and in depth it is an incredibly powerful practice. A result of this practice can make the experience more intense Presence, connectedness and liveliness be.
