Ambrosia & Nectar – masterclass in magic
May 26 - May 28
At the Olympus sat the gods, eating ambrosia and drinking nectar. Food for the soul, nourishing the healing force of the universe. When thinking about our new gatherings, we felt that what we are really doing since we started the 3-days workshops in Belgium, was holding a valuable space for people who are at service. People who are longing to grow more into themselves, working through their own issues, empowering their mission and bringing it to live in the world. At service of the well-being of communities, environment and the essence of human being. We are god in the depths of our heart. It is not a time to shy away from our gifts and power. It is time to co-create, imagine and reinvent our future.
For all people working with people, as a coach, group facilitator, leader, manager, teacher, therapist, social worker, body worker, healer, artist…who want to strengthen their presence and service in the world by unfolding and expressing the forces in themselves.
We warmly welcome diversity in our group. So whatever background, gender, age you are, if this message appeals to you, please bring your Ambrosia & Nectar.
There will be plenty to share and rejoice at 🙂
Day One: Through the looking glass
The first day we learn to travel through the layered states of reality and consciousness, deconstructing and opening up our default way of living and acting. During this day we would explore practices for accessing and shifting states of consciousness, from the worlds of shamanism, Kabala, and hypnosis.
Day Two: I had a dream last night
The second day we ascend the soul dimension connecting us to a deeper level of being, taking care of issues which can’t be healed on psyche level only. With practices of dreaming, channelling and communication on soul level we further access resources for healing and change, both for ourselves and for our surrounding.
Day Three: Playing is a serious matter.
The last day we venture further into action, becoming more fluent and committed in bringing healing consciousness in our own cosmos, micro and macro. We bring our deconstructed work and strive to build, create and form the realities that we so desperately need.
One or two dates: May or October
While the thematic structure of these three days will be repeated on the two dates, the content, depth and engagement from one masterclass to the other will change, in accordance with the group, and our state of playfulness. So you are welcome to subscribe to one or two.
New participants could join a short zoom session about 2 weeks before the event, should they wish to, where they are introduced in the theoretical and practical framework by Asaf. Seasoned participants who wish to tune in are welcome too. The zoom session will be recorded and made available.
We’ll be running two masterclasses exploring magic in 2023, which will nourish and educate, support and challenge us to grow and step even more into making a change.
Tree days for deepening the experience and practice of healing states of consciousness via magic and shamanism, Kabbalah and creativity, systemic constellation and dance. Using our mind, heart, body and soul to find meaning and bring joy throughout our existence.
Bringing together shamanism, Kabbala, systemic constellation, relational body psychotherapy and dance in creative ways, we will practice for transforming ourselves and others in relationships. Within a theoretical framework we will explore, share and learn in practical exercises and body-mind-soul experiences. A variation of interactive learning forms in groups, pairs, solo and demonstration. Music and movement whenever we relax and integrate. A spirit of serious play all through.
