Cleansing and Flourishing Ceremony(EN)


In our ordinary experience, we are overwhelmed by countless dualistic conceptions and perceptions. Every day we are attracted to pleasant objects and reject unpleasant ones. Expressed by a narrow idea of who we are, we spend time running after this and running away from it. As we have already seen, the deep-rooted habit of considering things in a dubious manner and of believing in that dualistic discrimination does not lead to anything other than to confusion and repeated disappointment.
But it is possible to cultivate a totally different view of reality. Fed up with the endless rat race, which is our compulsive cyclic existence, we can train in pervasive consciousness and cultivate a direct perception of how things really exist. This training has different phases, some eminently analytical and conceptual and others more direct and experimental.

The Benefit of the ceremony:

This Andean cleansing and flourishing ceremony is to remove negative energies and blocks which have accumulated from various sources over time.  By freeing stuck or blocked paths, it allows us to expand our hearts in love, forgiveness, and everything important in our lives.  It opens the way for us to be our true selves.  It also serves to prepare us to enter to the ceremony of gratitude with purity of mind and spirit.

Empowerment through acting(EN)

Drago Lazetich

Develop fundamental acting skills to fully utilize self-expression and increase imagination with conscious and physical techniques. The mind, emotions and body work in unison during action-reaction responses and allows natural impulses to come into play. Interacting with others is about being present, hearing, listening and sensing to fully appreciate the moment.

The Lazetich System is fun, eventful, and mindful as a fully conscious process. Through experimenting, experiencing and exploring performance activity such as theater games, Meisner Techniques, improvisation, mirror work, emotional reflection, pantomiming alongside basic martial arts, body movement awareness and scene studies.

While consciously enacting character play and self-expression, self-development occurs so the acting workshop benefits everyone. It encourages memories, experiences and trigger responses so this increases self awareness as well as an outlet and encourage confidence while guided by the instructor.

Sound & Movement Meditations(CN/EN)

Josephine Ong

Designed to awaken and enhance the natural healing mechanism in your body, these workshops will help you discover the inner intelligence within our physical bodies, thus affecting positive changes in our mental and emotional bodies along the process.

Inspired by the wisdom from Yoga, Intuitive Bodywork ©, Feldenkrais, Sound Therapy, Mindfulness, Meditation and Energy Healing, it is a creative exploration of practices fully engaging the Mind, Body and Heart.

Utilizing the physical body as a vessel of energy and transmutation, we also learn to view it as a barometer of our state mind and harness this quality for emotional balancing. Here is an opportunity to experiment and witness revealing insights through a practice that flows between opposite polarities: the interplay of Yin and Yang energies, the contrast between movement and stillness, appreciating organic versus mechanic qualities and its effects upon the self. As we gently tap into the subtle energy presence within ourselves, spontaneous meditation and deep healing is merely a natural phenomenon to savour.

By simply creating space, awareness and allowing the power of effortless-ness to flow through, we assist this innate ability within ourselves to be relaxed, healed and empowered. Come learn easy and efficient holistic modalities that could become powerful healing tools on your journey to empowerment.

Due to the gentle and restorative nature of these workshops, those with injuries or suffering from ailments are highly encouraged to learn these methods to heal themselves. This workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested in discovering, healing and empowering the Mind, Body and Heart to enhance general wellbeing, keen about Meditation and Mindfulness to deepen their practice.

Energy Calligraphy(CN/EN)

Ricky Wei

Chinese calligraphy is unique in that it is a visual representation or manifestation of qi. When viewing a piece of calligraphy, it is not only the arrangement of brush strokes that determines its artistic value. It is also the display of suppleness and strength (yin/yang) and the vital energy or qi that the artist has transferred into the art which makes it unique. Join Ricky as he demonstrates his expression of energy calligraphy as he receives energetic information from you and express the message in the form of calligraphy.
Ricky Vilas, a contemporary energy calligraphy artist. His childhood was deeply immersed in the world of ink and Chinese calligraphy under his father’s influence. Later, he developed his career as a human sculpture artist. To him, “Life is an endless process of self- discovery”. He styles himself “Quanlligrapher”, signifying the being of quantum mind in his calligraphy. Selfless soul, soundless voice. He seeks to capture the clearance of inner voice of his contemporaries through his ego-less self. Ricky is a grade-one calligrapher in China. His works has been collected by collectors.

Kirtan is a way of call-and-response chanting, it roots deeply in Vedic tradition and Indian culture. It plays a major role in the practice of Bhakti Yoga. With the singing of ancient Sanskrit mantras, the process of Kirtan helps us to “connect”, calm the mind, remove mental obstacles and carry us effortlessly to a place of open heart and inner stillness.
