Early disturbances around conception, gestation, birth and/or the first months of life can cause multiple difficulties in themes around contact with other people: a lack of trust, feeling frozen, sensation of inner emptiness, isolation, difficulty to feel connected or belonging, feeling safe as the world might not have been a safe place at that time.

We mindfully and gently approach themes around feeling protected, being welcomed and held, arriving safely, coming into contact, closeness, attached, growing, expanding and flourishing.

We will use the language of the body, allow the body to lead us and create a safe space where we can experience safety and trust.

Recurring patterns in behavior and life can modify in this deep gentle work. Healthy bonding and the unfolding of the individual and potential are being supported.

These seminars are an invitation to arrive in yourself, coming home, a journey towards loving yourself as self-acceptance is the prerequisite for loving and connecting with others.

The goal of this seminar together with your own intention is to ignite a process of self-healing.

The size of the group will be up to 5 or in case of co-facilitation 6 participants. Every participant will explore their chosen subject with the support of the group in an individual process.

There will be longer lunch breaks each day with shorter tea breaks in between. Keep the evenings free please as the ending time is open each day.

The seminar language is usually German. English speaking groups will be announced when dates are set or upon request.
