About the event
THEME OF THIS EVENING: SEE YOURSELF IN OTHERS
As children we learned that certain qualities in us where not welcomed and worthy of love.
We learned to push down those qualities when we noticed that our caregivers reacted to them with anger, rejection or shame.
As adults we might then judge the qualities in others that we don’t allow in ourself: we project our shadows on them.
We might also be attracted by others that embody a quality that we don’t allow in ourself: we want to experience the quality through them.
The first step to connect to others as our authentic self, is to bring awareness to these projections: noticing when they arise and being with them - so that we can meet beyond them.
This is what we will be exploring together this evening.
ABOUT THE CONNECTION CIRCLES
Deep down we all long to feel connected: being met, seen & heard by one another beyond what separates us. Yet somehow we all struggle with it, in our awkward and sweet humaneness.
The circles rotate between a set of themes that you can attend in whatever order you like and without having attended a circle before.
Come curious to discover different ways to meet beyond what separates us, through embodiment exercises, mindful observation, sharing and reflection.
We will use techniques and tools inspired by circling, mindfulness, authentic relating, embodied intimacy, somatic experiencing, trauma theory and yoga. All with the intention of connecting you with yourself and your body before you connect with others.
All human beings are welcome.
Every exercise is optional and you can bring a partner/friend to couple with if that makes you feel more at ease.
The event will be held in English.

IDA HELMERS Ida is known for holding space with integrity, presence and an open heart as well as leading the way into vulnerability and authenticity through sharing and welcoming what is. Ida often calls herself a relational nerd, as she loves to explore different ways of relating and sees relationships as a path of growth and healing.
Ida has a background as a Mindfulness instructor, health coach and massagetherapist as well as healing and energy work. The last couple of years she found a passion for relational healing and somatic awareness on her own healing journey and has since then dived into teachings around trauma theory, somatic resourcing & developmental psycholgy. She is deeply inspired by the community building and relational healing she´s experienced during her time in the Embodied Intimacy Training and community.
GUNTHER NANN Gunther is very passionate about relating. After struggling with connecting to himself, and thus to others for long periods of his life, he discovered the value of embodiment practices to re-connect with his desires, fears and boundaries. Since he is feeling himself again relating went from being scary to being exciting.
When relating to others he is very curious, not only about the other person, but also about the field that is created when two or more people come together. Following his curiosity often leads him to amazing experiences in the moment, that he could have never planned for. Besides his curiosity he brings presence, trauma-awareness and an acceptance of whatever is, which gives other people permission to be themselves.
