Action description
Come and experience what it means to really be connected towards yourself. In this workshop Aafke and Kimberly will guide you through an experimental meditation session to create a bigger sense of awareness.

In our busy lives, it seems hard to be present in the moment. We are too distracted to feel the sensations in our bodies, to really connect to our emotions or to be aware of our thoughts as one follows after the other. In this afternoon workshop, this is what we will explore. Embodying all of our being, as it is.

The main focus is simply to become more aware of physical sensations and our emotions through various different means. Sitting, moving, breathing, sounding. The atmosphere is an experiential one. We will explore together, and then share our experiences.

Kimberly and Aafke together build on decades of practice in either body or mind.
