Detailed Description

What's it about ?
In this workshop you 'll get introduced to ancient tools for modern-day challenges:

The plan
At 6.55 am, before the xpday sessions begin, we come together for a short intro in Shikantaza ZaZen. Then we start preparing the body for several iterations during 20min.

When our mind is calm and attentive, we stand up and practice some of the traditional exercises inherited from the samurai, Chinese & Indian traditions. Seemingly simple movements with powerful effects inside the body and mind.

The last 20 min. with mind & body relaxed and ready, we start exchanging energy with another and learn how to handle ourselves in relation to others. The focus is on awareness.

The Objective

Benefits for participants and presenter
After the workshop, you'll be energized, ready for a very interactive & productive day. As our ancestors already knew: Mens sana in corpore sana, is the foundation for great achievements.

The workshop will be held on both days from 7.00 - 8.00 am.
After the workshop we 'll have breakfast together and be ready for a great XP-day.
