Begin Again - Corfu Retreat
7. - 14. October 2023
Buddha Hall Corfu, Arillas, Magoulades, GR
Soul Motion Workshop with Edgar Spieker
We all share a longing for a fulfilled lived life. One of the keys to this is the alertness with which we travel through life. Children have a lot of this by nature. The wonder and fascination of a new experience allows them to be fully present.
As helpful as our life experiences are, sometimes they cause us to stop looking closely and think we know how life works. We sort situations and people into pigeonholes. Often, without realizing it, we are ruled by our habits and the lulling rhythm of everyday life does not exactly make it easier to be awake and present to the fullness of life.
There is a way out: Let us start from the beginning! Let us meet ourselves and the world with the eyes of a beginner. It does not take much: a portion of mindfulness and a renewed decision to be touchable.
This Corfu week is a unique combination of nourishing workshop experiences and soul-lounging in the warming sun of Corfu. The wonderfully warm Mediterranean Sea and the breathtakingly beautiful nature make it very easy for us to get back to being more in awe.
Our dance sessions take place in the wonderful Buddha Hall. A unique dance room on a mountain close to the sea with a fantastic view over the vastness of the island. The pool right in front of the dance room invites us to cool down after the sessions, the delicious food we can enjoy there for 6 days makes body and soul feel well nourished.
No previous knowledge is necessary for participation. This workshop assumes normal physical and mental resilience.
Saturday evening: Welcome Dinner at a tavern in Arillas (optional).
Sun, Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri : Breakfast together at Buddha Hall and Soul Motion morning session (approx. 2h). Lunch together. The afternoon is free. 20h evening session at Buddha Hall (approx. 2h).
Wednesday is a free day for excursions. On this day there will be no morning session, but a joint dinner followed by the Soul Motion evening session.
