Every morning there will be a movement unit (shorter on
excursion days) based on the Movement Ritual or the Tamalpa
Life/Art Process according to Anna Halprin or BalFolk Dance,
in the evening there will usually be a Biodanza unit and/or a
fire and incense ritual. On excursion days (to the lake and small
hikes), the program is adjusted accordingly, so that vacation
and relaxation are not neglected.
Biodanza means DANCE OF LIFE – Bio, from Greek Bios: Life & Danza: Dance.
Biodanza is a holistic system of dance, music, mindful movement and group encounters. Aesthetic value or step sequences are irrelevant. Biodanza is an invitation to experience vitality, sensuality, joy of life and creativity.
Deep connection with life and the community develops. The positive effect on body, soul and
spirit has now been scientifically proven (Uni Leipzig).
Incense rituals with dried herbs have a long shamanic tradition. The smoke serves as a mediator between the spiritual and physical world. Purification, protection, blessing, healing and vision finding are possible.
If you want, you can receive a powerful and individual incense ritual during the week.
The Tamalpa Life/Art Process® offers the opportunity and the framework to get in touch with oneself,
nature and collective issues.
This happens through movement, dance, creative painting and writing. The creative process leads to a deeper understanding of the nature of our personal and collective being,
promoting transformation and development at all levels.
The MovementRitual developed by Anna Halprin consists of a sequence of systematic and structured
movements to explore the basic principles and the development process of human body movements.
BalFolk – traditional dances from the lively dance culture of Western Europe in a circle, in a longway, in a chain and in pairs. Shared rhythm, different figures and formations in space as well as changing of partners naturally create joy of life and a sense of community.
