This 4-day / 3-night retreat in the Mandala Room at the gorgeous Seminarhof Drawehn just outside Berlin (and equidistant from Hamburg) allows us the time and space to drop away from daily life and into a curious, dance-filled, creativity-inspired exploration of our relationship to relating.
The words ‘relationships’ and ‘relating’ bring up different feelings, pictures and ideas for each one of us. Every single reaction and response is welcome, is encouraged. Each one of us feel more at ease, more at home, in some relationships vs others. Perhaps, I might find an evening alone to be really difficult and thrive most in a big group. Perhaps, you might celebrate evenings to yourself and find settings with more than 2 people to be challenging. Just as an example!
Through the 5Rhythms map, in here + out there brings us into open inquiry on how we engage in different constellations of relationships. We take away the judgements of right or wrong. We learn to let the thinking mind rest as we discover … using the body, primarily through dance … our answers to questions such as:
- What does relationship mean to me?
- Which constellations are easiest or most challenging?
- How might I hold myself back or constrict myself in relating?
- When would I like to find more space or freedom to choose how to relate (vs. being in a pattern / habit)?
And – throughout this retreat – we will weave an undercurrent of a theme dear to my heart: How do I maintain my integrity in all these different forms of relating?
Inevitably, the more curious we become, the more freedom we acquire to choose how x when x where x why we engage in the myriad of relationships.
