MUSIC & DANCE


 

NESSI GOMES

Born on the tiny Island of Guernsey to a Portuguese family, Gomes channels influences from both sides of her ethnicity, blending the essence of the traditional, emotional and ‘larger than life’ Fado folk music with British progressive modern inspiration.

Diamonds & Demons is the debut album by musician Nessi Gomes, a composer and lyricist of rare invention and beauty. Ensuing tales of darkness and light allow a deeper exploration of the human condition, psyche, collective fears and torments. Nessi and her producer Duncan Bridgeman ('1 Giant Leap’) together dug an uncharted tunnel into the artist's turbulent heart and soul. The album was recorded following a successful fundraising campaign in April 2015 during which more than $50,000 was raised. Nessi toured in the wake of the campaign, playing in 25 European countries in the last 6 years including major festivals in Europe.

Het debit album reveals an authentic and heartfelt search for light, depth, hope and truth; an artistic quest for love and trust. A series of intricately detailed, hauntingly atmospheric and lushly textured Avant-ballads. Here is a musician whose work obliquely references her travails and nods to Björk and Kate Bush but is uniquely her own, with Portuguese inflections and intimations of hope and dread.

NETANEL GOLDBERG

Global prayer journey

There is tremendous power in a shared space of prayer and singing. A common song that connects all hearts together into one beating heart.  It is an invitation to connect to the simple truth in us - that spreads simply .It is an invitation to sing what lives in us in the miraculous and present moment .It's an invitation to dive into an ocean of harmonies. Sing with the heart of the world. It is an invitation to rest in the great spirit and let her lead us even to the places we never dreamed of reaching. It is an invitation to make room for the many emotions that live in us. Allow the tears to clear, the sighs to loosen. It is an invitation to heal and receive healing. It's an invitation to be together. In unity. In oneness.

Everyone whose soul desires to be and feel together the connection of hearts. Anyone who wants to sing the truth that lives in it - in its thousand wonderful shades. Anyone who seeks heart-healing medicine.

Netanel Goldberg (singer, composer, writer, tiller of the soil, Lover & a student of life) leads sessions of prayer and soul singing ceremonies in Israel, Europe, and the United States. In addition to ceremonies, Netanel leads workshops, retreats & accompanies ceremonies of life (weddings, birth & death, grief). You can listen to his music on his new album: Live – songs from live ceremonies, “River of Light”, “Pure Emotion” “Magic moments”. And in all the online play stores

Please come as you are.

OUR ECHO - SHADOW DANCER

Ecstatic Dance

Music is medicine. My sets are impromptu selections, and tailored to the emotions surfacing on the dance floor within the community. My path through music has been one of personal growth, community, integration and dancing with the shadow. Within my sets you will get glimpses and doses of Latin funk, throbbing bass, ambient strings, tribal drum, conscious floetry, binaural beats and haunting sounds of ancestors and tribes unknown.

Through dance, everyone can discover, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a fulfilling and more meaningful life. By engaging our senses and listening to our bodies, we connect to others and shape a consciousness that extends beyond our own.

DJ YARUN DEE

Ecstatic Dance is a 2 hour dance journey, in which we move/dance however we wish. No steps required, no talking allowed. Simply dance. The dance will be opened with a short introduction of our guidelines and a physical warming up. The dance itself is lead by a DJ after which the dance is closed with a special momentum. The Dance journey has several “waves” of intensity, from strong expressive up to silent and meditative. A perfect exemple of the ups and downs of life. Ecstatic is being danced all over the world, we all share the passion to bring more depth onto the dancefloor and into your lives.

MARLIA COEUR

Live Sound Journey

Join this sound journey to lay back, relax and soak up the healing Sophia consciousness sounds of live angelic vocals, interdimensional handpans, deep flute sounds from the East Mediterranean Sea, all created live for each session. 
The journey is focusing on accepting the sovereign Divinity of our humanity with transmissions inspired by Goddesses Isis (Egypt), Aphrodite (Cyprus) and Athena (Greece). 
The effect is deeply relaxing, rejuvenating, even stirring deep emotions, remembering and giving rise to a state of well-being.
By utilising awareness techniques, the recipient can be guided into a state of clarity, balance the chakra centres, and receive messages. 
It is common to enter into deep meditative states, realms of wisdom and inner-standing. 
Coming out from the stillness, we will sing Medicine Songs together in a circle to uplift our souls, remind ourselves to celebrate life and reconnect to what is sacred.

 

Marlia Coeur is a sound oracle, a vocal activator & facilitator of human potential expressed through the voice. 

As a Music Academy coordinator, devotional singer and multi-instrumentalist, she helps people who are disconnected from their voice learn how to express their true voice with purpose and clarity through intentional breathing & vocal encouragement, so they can fully connect to their hearts. 

She has journeyed around the world on back-to-back music tours, offering live performances, improvisation experiences, high-energy workshops and immersive retreats. With a growing festival presence, she is a powerful voice in the world of 'Ceremonial/medicine music' and the rising global community of people who are committed to residing in harmony with the Earth.

After her deeper dives into energetic modalities and the workings of the voice, from being certified as a Voice Coach by MVT Academy to the guidance of Indian classical musicians such as Manoj Dubey, Qawali Legends such as Tahir Qawwal, and Master Teachers such as Bobby McFerrin's students such as Guillermo Rozenthuler & Albert Herra, she is known for her Circle-singing Facilitation, Choral Ensemble performances and Vocal Activation workshops + retreats. 
Residing in Bali for the last 3 years, the connection to vocal alchemy has become even stronger, as she continues to train people in private or group vocal activation sessions how to unlock their throat chakra and remember how to speak their truth. Her new courses such as the 12-chakra frequency attunement and the 21-day Rising Voice are now online.

ARUN JI

Ecstatic Dance

Ecstatic Dance is a free-form dance born in Hawaii around the year 2000. It's a non-verbal experience through music and movement, a space beyond the mind where the body can express itself freely, connecting intimately with oneself and/or with the group. Music, as the only guide, offers a collage of different rhythms and melodies. It starts gently, gradually increasing the energy, helping participants  to go beyond stablished limits, creating an atmosphere of connection where everyone feels safe and free to dance, express, have fun, explore, be vulnerable, discover...

ARUN JI continues surprising us with new formulas to offer an ecstatic, powerful and transforming experience, mixing the songs with his refined technique, seeking for musical harmony and the right fusion of rhythms, willing to offer a common thread and a poetic narrative to his sessions after 10 years in the scene. He is one of the pioneers of Ecstatic Dance in Europe and Asia, organising and facilitating sessions, retreats and festivals. His development as an Ecstatic Dance DJ went together with the study of different forms of dance and meditation. This gave him his sensitive approach to create energetic and deep musical journeys. His offering is much appreciated by many communities, being often invited to play for different ecstatic dances, festivals and retreats.

It is suitable for any age and no previous experience is required. Please bring comfortable clothes and water bottle.

TANYA & RIKA

Sound & Touch

„Sound & Touch“ eröffnet einen Raum für dich, um dich in die Welt des Klanges und der Berührung eintauchen zu lassen. Gemeinsam wird ein Raum kreiert, in dem du die Möglichkeit hast, selbst zu erfahren welche tiefgreifende Wirkung die Kombination aus Klang und Berührung auf Körper, Geist und Seele hat. Klang ist ein kraftvolles Werkzeug, welches sich ganz gezielt auf unseren Körper und Geist auswirkt. Die Arbeit mit Klang basiert auf dem Konzept der Resonanzfrequenz Heilung, das heißt, die natürliche und gesunde Schwingung wird in unserem Körper wiederhergestellt. In der Meditation besänftigt er unseren Monkey Mind und bietet unserem Geist etwas, worauf er sich fokussieren kann, ähnlich wie beim Mantra singen. Er hilft uns, leichter und schneller in andere Bewusstseinsebenen zu gelangen, in denen wir entspannen und neue Energie und Kreativität schöpfen können. 


Berührung ist Nahrung. Berührung brauchen wir zum Leben, denn es ist ein elementares Bedürfnis von uns Menschen. Wissenschaftliche Studien haben ergeben, dass eine wohltuende Berührung unser Immunsystem stärkt, unser Nervensystem sowie unsere Emotionen reguliert und auch Glücks-Bindungshormone ausschüttet. Berührung ist die wichtigste Art der menschlichen Verbindung und sie macht uns glücklich. Lass dich von Tanya und ihren Klängen der Kristallklangschalen und anderen Instrumenten sanft umhüllen und von Rika mit ihrer achtsamen Berührungskunst nähren. Connect with your Sound within. Touch with your Heart.

ADAM RICE

Heart to Heart Yoga

Originally from Florida, USA, I have been living in Berlin, Germany for the last 15 years, and teaching Vinyasa flow since 1999. My life looked much differently, however, before disovering yoga 20 years ago. Back then, I was a high-strung, ambitious overachiever wanting to be number one and willing to do anything to achieve the image of "success" I had built up in my mind. I was a Junior Olympic athlete (wrestling) when I was younger, and went into banking upon graduation from University.
I worked 60-70 hours per week and was training much too hard for my body, not giving myself the proper rest I needed. In my mid-20s, I experienced a near burn-out, was suffering from panic attacks, couldn't sleep at night, and was in constant pain. Luckily, I had the good fortune to stumble across a yoga studio that my massage therapist recommended to me. Walking out of that first class, I seemed to truly feel the earth beneath my feet for the first time, and was filled with a sense of calm and centerdness I'd never experienced before.
This experience changed my life. Today, I am teaching workshops and retreats around the world, and am dedicating my life to others through my Travel with a Purpose and YogaKids Uganda projects, where I am leading retreats in partnership with an orphanage in Rishiskesh, India, and working on bringing trauma-informed yoga therapists to work with ex-child soldiers near Kampala, Uganda.
I am also working strongly on the shamanic plant medicine path as Director of Apotheosis (www.apotheosisretreat.com) and Lead Facilitator for Synthesis (www.synthesisretreat.com) Additionally, I am a tantra an sexual dearmouring healer, Reiki Master and Legacy Ambassador for Lululemon Athletica. My desire is to help others to step out of the conditioning of society and their own minds, which often prevent us from stepping into our true authenticity, and limit us from realizing our ultimate potentials.

EVI

Traditional Hatha Yoga

Evi will offer a Sun Hatha Yoga class. Based on traditional tantric Hatha Yoga there are three stages: Moon, Sun and Fire. Each one impacts our nervous system, physical body, mind, etc. in a different way. Our society makes us believe that Yoga is about the body. But it is about the mind. The main goal is to stable the mind (Meditation) and by doing that get access to our higher self/mind.
A complete practice always consists of Asana, Pranayama and Meditation.
Sun Hatha is about cultivating Prana, lifeforceenergy.

Anybody who is able to breath can come 😉
Mats will be provided. Bring some water.

Already in her childhood EVI felt that there is more to life than what we can see. Being a seeker for all her life brought her quiet around the world. She always said: „I would need one hundred lives to experience all the magic (back then: hobbies and jobs) what this incarnation has to offer.“ After studying nutrition, she lived in the United States for two years working as an Au Pair. Getting taste of that freedom and traveling, she worked as a flight attendant for 10 years.
Yoga has been her anker since she was 18 years old. Universe pushed her into the direction of diving deeper into this science by doing a Yoga Teacher Training. After many hours of teaching and countless hours of studying and practicing she did another Training in Bali, which introduced her to the Lineage of traditional tantric Hatha Yoga. A very science based approach, which combines Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda.

SACHA HEATH

Session will end with a gentle mantra played live for you to listen to and receive or sing along with.

All are welcome- if you have any challenges that may affect you during your class please let Sacha know at the start of the session and She would be very happy to adapt things to work for you as we go along.

ECHO GIESEL WIDMER

From Trauma to Tantra

On this journey, we travel deeply inwards to meet our shadow selves. At the core wounding, we dig at our roots, to tear up any loose foundation that is shaky, unstable, and unsettling for our mental health, and physical.

The human experience in itself is a challenging one. Uncertainty, loss, fear, rejection, and existential angst are all elements that can leave us feeling lost at sea, alone, and left behind. We will dance into the Golden Shadow and learn to give her monsters faces, names and a seat at the table. May we breathe, release and learn to dance with grace.

ANVA GOLDBERG

Natural Movements

Movement as a bride to bonding Deep-Inner Journeys with Anva Goldberg accompanied by Netanel Goldberg with live music. This journey is an intimate meeting with your own movement, with your expressive, wise body. It is a deep study where the wisdom of the body is the guide. All we have to do is surrender and dance from a space of un-knowing & new listening. We will move  alone, together, will embrace & be embraced,  at times having a glimpse into the feeling of bonding & oneness. Insights arise, emotions can float. We dance all that is alive in us in the present moment. You are invited to dive into your inner fountains which awaken hearts and connect you to your inner essence, to the nature in you.

For anyone who wants to experience intimacy with life through movement. This journey is suitable for all genders ages 18 - 70+

Anva comes from the world of healing, dance & art. Natural movement was born from desire that came to her from a lot of physical pain that she suffered in the first 3 years of her life. It created disconnection with her own body & soul. Then the desire to heal has led her to a movement that creates bonding between them. Anva met spiritual dance teachers. She went into deep studies where we danced every step of life (dancing our biography).  She continued to explore with a group of women movement as reflection of life. She looks at nature and around her, inside her, from curiosity to meet herself, meet people, understand the material of life through the body. Anva lives in Israel with her partner and beloved Netanel.

Please bring:
* Comfortable clothing to dance
* Bottle of water
* Writing Notebook  paper + Writing pen

SOPHIA MICHALOPOULOU

Future Families

Birth impacts everyone because we’ve all been born. How we ourselves experienced our birth journeys from conception to birth will in turn influence the way we birth and parent our future babies.
How you prepare for the future conception of your baby, your pregnancy and birth will impact your baby’s future as well as all of our futures as family, friends and communities.
What are the needs of future babies and how can you best prepare yourself for them?
We can contribute to the future wellbeing of our planet and our humanity by creating new paradigms at birth.

Are you already a parent? You might not feel ready to parent a child yet, but if you are generally over the age of 14 and you are having sex then potentially, you are able to conceive a baby. This workshop is for you if you are a future parent, a sister or a brother, an auntie or an uncle. All are welcome if you feel the call, it takes a community to raise a child after all.
We are creating this new Earth together.

Sophia is an aquatic perinatal therapist, a newborn and baby swimming educator as well as a pregnancy and birth doula. By remembering her own birth journey while immersed in warm water Sophia began to see birth from a baby’s perspective. She is a founding member of the Pregnancy and Birth Network of Kerkyra and is working towards establishing natural out of hospital births as a safe and desirable option on the island of Corfu.

Please bring your willingness to dive deep within, any questions, or fears you wish addressed and perhaps a comforting item like a pillow or a scarf.

This workshop will take place on land.

MARIJE TERLUIN

Past Life Regression

Marije Terluin is a Past Life Regressionist, and owner of www.wondersnevercease.co. Marije studied at the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Academy (QHHT) of Dolores Cannon. She offers both 1:1 regressions in her office in Berlin, and group workshops.

This 2-hour group workshop is a fun and easy way to experience hypnosis, and discover a past life. Most people have lived many lives; however, the one you will experience in the workshop is the one your Higher Self picks for you to see. It will be a past lifetime that offers information that will benefit you in your present-day life.

The workshop consists of 3 different exercises, and there will be lots of interaction in between the exercises. Doing a past life regression feels much like a guided meditation. During hypnosis you are always in your own control, and will feel relaxed and refreshed, when the workshop is done.

Please bring the following:

  • Notebook and pen
  • Yoga mat
  • Water
  • A blanket + eye mask (optional)

Best way to prepare:

  • Don’t drink any coffee or alcohol before the workshop
  • Make sure you eat beforehand
  • Wear comfortable clothing
  • Have no expectations and come with an open mind!

CHRISTIAN RIPPEL

Lucid Dreaming

This Lucid Dreaming session guided by Christian is an immersive experience and designed to take your body and your mind from a busy state to space of calmness and rest. Instead of “do” we will just “be”. Instead of “think” we will “feel”. Instead of “rush” we will “rest”.
Accompanied by experimental music, this session will consist of deep relaxation techniques that intend to bring us to states between consciousness and sleep.  We will lie in stillness and experience the magic of Lucid Dreaming together.
30 minutes of Lucid Dreaming equal 2 hours of your usual sleep. It is proven to help to relieve stress and tension, to rejuvenate the body, increase concentration, decompress and recover. This effortless practise brings many benefits - physically and mentally. It can also allow you to release unresolved unconscious issues that are playing an unwanted role in your daily life. After the session you will leave in a soothing state, rested and ready for the rest of the day.
Lucid Dreaming is about finding your inner peace and calm, letting go of your day and your worries, finding clarity. Give yourself the gift of resting.

Lucid Dreaming is for people who seek immersive experiences, like to dive inwards and people who are into meditation and transcendental journeys.

Please bring Comfortable Clothes. Something to cover the Eyes (not necessary).
