Relational Being - The Retreat


Relational Being – The Retreat
Explore, Enhance and Refine your Art of Relating
***in English & German - Deutsche Ausschreibung weiter unten***

OUR INVITATION:
We welcome you to a one week journey in the mountains of Southern Spain. Enjoy a holiday atmosphere with like-minded people among the elements of nature.


WE INVITE YOU TO:
* Explore the way you relate to the environment, to each other, and to your true self
* Enhance your relationships, from the workplace to the bedroom
*Refine your communication skills and expression – even beyond words

IS THIS RETREAT FOR YOU?
* Do you seek more authentic connections, from light and playful to deep and meaningful?
* Do you recognize similar patterns in different relationships?
* Do you perceive relationships as an opportunity for personal growth?

If so, then we encourage you to read on!

WHAT MAKES THIS RETREAT UNIQUE?
This journey is designed for you to rejuvenate and relax, which is an important base to connect from.

We can only learn something new and develop sustainably from a place of "Relaxation & Vacation". Many (relationship) opportunities aren´t available under stress and within rigid boundaries!

Even from a neurophysiological perspective, we can only truly relate when are in a relaxed, “regulated” state, the so-called social engagement sector (SES) of our nervous system.

With the intention to support the social engagement sector of our nervous system, we designed a special program to guide your learning in a relaxed atmosphere. From Yoga and Meditation, Non-Violent Communication over to Massage, Trauma Therapy and Conscious Sensuality - we want to enhance your unique Art of Relating.


WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Besides re-energizing and enjoying a holiday atmosphere.. ;)
We offer guided activities, conceptual background knowledge, and space for you to learn underlying principles from your own experiences.

• Body scans, meditation and breathing techniques to develop self-awareness and regulation
• Massage techniques on land, in water and even up in the air - to relax, build trust & connection
• Communicating for emotional release versus communicating for connection
• Distinguish perceptions from interpretations and learn to express them clearly
• Discern Feelings from Emotions and understand why this is important when relating
• Feel and express your needs and desires, to create nourishing relations
• Listen, perceive and interpret body (language) and inner states
• Recognize and understand states of the nervous system (fight/flight/freeze) and its importance for social engagement
• Physiological and emotional regulation for healthy boundaries, as a base for connection
• Become aware of your patterns and dynamics, not to re-create destructive relationships
• Understand principles of pulsation = aliveness, with the natural movement of contraction and expansion
• Notice it within yourself and your relationships to go with the flow and guide it with awareness
• Learn to be with more energy, feelings and emotions in yourself and with another, enjoy your full aliveness!

Let us go beyond our concepts of relationship - and move towards “Relational Being”.



ACTIVITIES AND SCHEDULE:
• For the early birds, each day begins with tailored Yoga and Meditation
• Enjoy a vegetarian breakfast with a view of the valley, and on clear days, the Mediterranean Sea and Africa can be seen
• Daily 3.5-hour workshop invites you to follow a red thread and go deeper into the above-mentioned themes.
• Vegetarian/Vegan meals are cooked by the Hidden Paradise staff from homegrown fruits, vegetables and local produce.
• During breaks, you can relax by the pool, take walks in the surrounding hills, take a nap, interact by the fireplace, etc.
• Guest facilitators will offer parallel workshops in the afternoons offering more variety to suit your current flow, such as circling, authentic relating games, floating, etc.
• Evenings will be open to singing, ecstatic dancing, massage jams, etc.
• Additionally, you can book private therapeutic and wellness sessions during your stay. There will be Aquatic Bodywork, Thai Massage, OsteoThai, and more.


Slow down and take time to feel, to connect to enjoy being - in Relation


FACILITIES & SURROUNDINGS
Hidden Paradise is set up to meet your needs at all times. Two round workshop halls with large glass windows overlook the valley. Shared community space, cottages, tree houses and two pools are spread along the valley, providing sufficient space to roam, relax and interact.

This allows you to consciously come in and out of contact, within a safe container held for you by nature, the venue and ourselves. We encourage you to listen to your body and follow your intuition, curiosity and interest. Slow down and take time to feel.

*** DEUTSCHE AUSSCHREIBUNG***

„IN BEZIEHUNG SEIN“ – DAS RETREAT
erforsche, erweitere und verfeinere die Kunst Dich zu beziehen

Herzlich Willkommen zu einer einwöchigen Reise in die Berge Südspaniens. Genieße Dich mit Gleichgesinnten inmitten der wundervollen Natur Andalusiens.

WIR LADEN DICH EIN:
* Erforsche den Kontakt zu Deiner Umgebung, anderen Menschen, Dir und Deinem wahren Selbst.
* Erweitere Deine Beziehungen – vom Arbeitsplatz bis zum Schlafzimmer
* Verfeinere Deine Kommunikationsfähigkeiten – mit und auch jenseits von Worten

IST DAS RETREAT FÜR DICH?
Suchst Du authentische Verbindungen – von leicht und spielerisch zu tief und bedeutungsvoll?
Bemerkst Du immer wieder die gleichen Muster in unterschiedlichen Beziehungen?
Nimmst Du Deine Beziehungen als Wachstumsmöglichkeit wahr?

Falls ja, möchten wir Dich ermuntern weiter zu lesen!

WAS MACHT DIESES RETRAT EINZIGARTIG?
Dieses Retreat ist für Dich zum Entspannen und Erholen gestaltet, eine wichtige Basis für Erneuerung und Beziehung!

Denn erst durch „Entspannung & Urlaub“ können wir wirklich Neues lernen und uns nachhaltig entwickeln. Viele (Beziehungs-) Möglichkeiten fallen unter Stress und innerhalb einengender Grenzen weg!

Sogar von einer neurophysiologischen Perspektive aus, können wir nur dann wirklich in Beziehung gehen, wenn wir in einem entspannten, „regulierten“ Zustand sind – dem sogenannten Sozialem-Kontakt-Bereich (in Fachsprache SES) unseres Nervensystems.

Unsere Ausrichtung ist den „Sozialen-Kontakt-Bereich“ zu unterstützen und genau dafür haben wir ein spezielles Programm für entspanntes Sein, Lernen & Beziehen entworfen.

Von Yoga und Meditation, Gewaltfreier Kommunikation und Massage, Trauma Therapie und Bewusster Sinnlichkeit begleiten Dich, Deine Einzigartigkeit in der Kunst sich zu Beziehen zu erweitern.


WAS WIRST DU LERNEN?
Neben entspannen und genießen in Urlaubsaatmopsphäre … ;)
bieten wir geleitete Übungen, theoretische Hintergründe und viel Raum für Deine eigenen Erfahrung, unter anderem damit Du die Prinzipien Deines Beziehens tiefer begreifen und so auch verändern kannst.

• Body Scans, Meditationen und Atemtechniken, um Selbst-Bewusstsein und Regulation zu entwickeln
• Massage Techniken an Land, im Wasser und in der Luft – zum Entspannen, Vertrauen & Verbindung auf bauen
• Verbale Kommunikation - als Ausdruck und Entladung, im Gegensatz zu Kommunikation für Kontakt
• Lerne Wahrnehmung von Interpretationen zu unterscheiden und dies klar & verbindend auszudrücken
• Unterscheide Gefühle & Emotionen und versteh, warum dies wichtig für Dein Beziehen ist
• Nimm Deine Bedürfnisse und Sehnsucht wahr, kommuniziere sie, um nährende Verbindungen zu erschaffen
• Erkenne und verstehe Körpersprache und die inneren
Zustände, die sie ausdrückt
• Begreife die Zustände Deines Nervensystems (Kampf / Flucht / Erstarrung) und ihre Wichtigkeit für sozialen Kontakt
• Erlebe physische und emotionale Regulation, damit Du gesunde Grenzen als Basis für Kontakt haben kannst
• Erkenne Deine Muster und Dynamiken, lerne sie zu transformieren, um nicht dauerhafte destruktive Beziehungen zu (re)konstruieren
• Verstehe und genieße die Prinzipien von Pulsation und Lebendigkeit – der natürlichen Bewegung von Kontraktion und Expansion
• Und bemerke diese in Dir selbst und Deinen Beziehungen, um diesem natürlichen Fluss folgen und ihn bewusst lenken zu können
• Lerne mit mehr Energie, Gefühl und Emotionen in Dir und mit anderen sein zu können – genieße Deine volle Lebendigkeit!

UND lasst uns über alle Konzepte von “Beziehung” hinauszugehen und uns wahrhaftig „in Beziehungs-Sein“.


AKTIVITÄTEN & TAGESPLANUNG: • Für die “frühen Vögel” beginnt der Tag mit speziellem Yoga und Meditation
• gemütliches vegetarisches Frühstück mit Ausblick ins Tal, bei klarer Sicht bis auf´s Mittelmeer und nach Afrika
• Tägliche 3,5 stündige Workshops laden Dich ein mit einzelnen Themen tiefer zu gehen, ein roten Faden folgend
• Bezaubernde vegane/vegetarische Mahlzeiten werden mit selbst-angebauten Früchten und Gemüse-Sorten für uns bereitet
• In den Pausen kannst Du in den Pool springen, in den Bergen spazieren gehen, in Hängematten ein Nickerchen machen und abendlich am Lagerfeuer sitzen
• Gastdozenten werden parallel Workshops anbieten, damit Du Deinem Fluss folgen kannst – z.B. Circling, AcroYoga, Authentic Relating Games, Floating…
• Die Abende sind offen für kreatives Miteinander, z.B. Singkreise, Ecstatic Dance- & Massage Jams …
• Zusätzlich kannst Du private wellness & therapeutische Behandlungen buchen. Es gibt Wasserarbeit, Thaimassage, OsteoThai, Coaching und mehr!


DER ORT UND DIE UMGEBUNG:
Das Hidden Paradise ist ausgestattet, um alle Deine Bedürfnisse zu erfüllen.
Zwei große, runde Seminarräume aus Holz, mit umliegenden Fenstern werden uns beherbergen. Wir haben reichlich Platz innen, wie außen und mitten in der Natur, so kannst Du jederzeit Deinen Blick schweifen lassen und in die Tiefe eintauchen.
Liebevoll kreierte Gemeinschaftsräume, hölenartige Steinhäuser, kunstvolle Baumhäuser und zwei Pools ... bieten genug Raum zum Entspannen, Interagieren und Genießen.

Dies erlaubt Dir bewusst in Kontakt zu finden und auch Zeit für Dich zu nehmen – in einem sicheren Raum der von der Natur, der Örtlichkeit und dem Team gehalten wird.
Wir laden Dich ein auf Dich selbst, Deinen Körper und Deine Intuition zu hören – langsam zu werden und Dir Zeit zu nehmen Dich zu fühlen.

Wir haben uns auf den ersten Blick in das „Hidden Paradise“ verliebt und das möchten wir gerne mit Dir teilen, hier kannst Du Dir selbst „ein Bild" machen (http://hiddenparadise.org/gallery-hidden-paradise/).

Aguahara Ibiza Summer Training
Aug
1
to Aug 17

Aguahara Ibiza Summer Training

I am assisting my beautiful teachers Sandra Morrell & Martin Minghetti, doing it for the second time - I can highly recommend it!

____

This year Aguahara Course in Ibiza will befrom the 1 to the 17 of August. For the 6th time we will create a community in this magic island to dive deep into the aquatic realms.

It will be an special intensive course of 2 or 3 levels depending in the hours in the water and previous experience, and it will be develo-ped in the wonderful waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The Intention is to create a Community for the time of the course, living all the process together, in and out of the water. This allows us to not just learn the technique behind this work, but also experience into the depth the potential of Aguahara.

The course will be manly in English and Spanish.

Aguahara is not just a technique but a dance between giver and receiver within the water. Crea-ting a space of trust without judgment or expectations, simply being in a flow of intuition in that every moment. Each participant will become familiar with the element water, to move and be moved by it, to feel the flow and learn to move a person in the water and playing, investigating and discovering the freedom and potential of movements that can be created without gravity. When one surrenders and trusts, also the mind relaxes and meditative states of consciousness can be achieved as well as physical, emotional and mental blockages can be solved and pro-cessed.

In this course we will learn and develop the basics of working in the sacred healing element of water. The course is based on a lot of practice, so we will be every day for a few hours in the water, learning how to move and being moved in the connection of giver and receiver. There will also be a theoretical part in form of lectures and parts of the teaching are outside of the water.

This is an intensive course, which at least requires 5-6h dedication a day. If you need to work and you have to leave a special time, please request us if it is possible to take the course

If you already practice Aquatic Bodywork, you may be able to join later in the course (please request). Everybody with no water practice needs to start from the first week.



Program:

1st level “Basic Treatment”

→ Learn how to give a full session on the surface of the water; opening and relaxing of the body, floating and stretches


1st+2nd level “Into the deep”

→ Learn the Basic Treatment as well as the first underwater moves and the body / mind con-nection


3 level “Free Flow”

→ Full Aguahara apprenticeship with a deep immersion into the dance of energy’s

Earlybird Price until 30th June


The amount of students is limited, so if you are interested, apply early.

AcroYoga meets Aquatic Bodywork

For the first time in the Philippines, AcroYoga meets Poetry in Water®

Fly, flow and heal with mentors Lilli Breininger and Steve Karle on April 21-24, 2016 in Mt. Purro Nature Reserve in Antipolo!

Join us for this unique experience!

about the teachers
Lilli is a certified AcroYoga teacher, a Vinyasa Yoga teacher, a Thai Massage therapist and a Craniosacral practitioner.
more info at www.lilliobreininger.de

Steve is a certified Watsu® practitioner and teacher, Craniosacral Therapist and director of the British School of Aquatic Bodywork.
more info at www.poetryinwater.com


about the practices
AcroYoga is a practice that combines the playfulness of acrobatics, the wisdom of yoga and the healing touch of thai massage. It brings people together, builds up trust and positive communication.

While your body develops new muscles, your brain develops new neuropathways by doing fun movements you might have never experienced before. While having fun you enhance your metabolism and move your body.

Even more so when the element of water comes into play… the lack of gravity unloads weight off the spine and joints inviting you into a state of deep relaxation and expansion where stress can be released and the body can unwind…

During the Poetry in Water workshop you will learn how to listen to your partner’s body and follow it on a journey into natural, fluid and primal movement. Quality of touch and connection as well as principles of alignment and core-work in water will be explored.

"Steve ‘engages the body in conversation’ acting as a facilitator for the body’s natural desire to move. The series of fluid movements is healing and restorative."
— EPICUREAN LIFE MAGAZINE

"Steve ‘talks’ to my body, tunes into it and instinctively knows where and how it wants to move and then supports and guides me into certain positions. The sequence is never choreographed. Instead, the aim is for the body to experience ‘new’ movement."
— ASIA SPA MAGAZINE

about the venue
Mount Purro Nature Reserve is a green hub right next to the busy city of Metro Manila, vegetarian meals and a quiet space are guaranteed.
