Embodied Community Facilitation

Creating nourishing, in-depth workshops

Online courses and workshops are becoming more and more popular, however, there is a huge range of how these can be run.

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of dry and soulless lectures (not only in the online sphere!) that solely focus on pouring information into people’s heads. In an overly intellectual world, I am curious about how to create learning experiences that equally focus on how participants are feeling during workshops — incorporating the multifacetedness of our being.

In this 1,5h interactive workshop, you will learn how to facilitate nourishing & co-creational spaces with the help of simple yet profound embodiment & community/connection-building methods.

The workshop covers the following topics:

  • How to safely structure and hold space in workshops that go beyond the delivery of information.

  • How to work with the body to create a more dynamic & holistic experience.

  • Methods to design workshops in a co-creational & interactive way.

  • Methods & frameworks to create emotional connection & depth between participants.

  • Embodiment & emergent facilitation principles — the inner attitude of the facilitator.

  • PDF summary & further reading recommendations included

  • Many of the principles & methods can be used just as well in physical spaces, yet given the nature of the format the focus lies on how to create authentic connection and nourishing experiences online.

About the format

The Embodied Community Facilitation workshop will take place:

live via Zoom on Monday, 28th of September, 7.30pm CET (Berlin time).

I highly recommend you to participate in the live workshop. By participating in the interactive tasks, the learning effect and the depth of experience are amplified. Also I love meeting you and connecting in person!

Variable Price Options

For more inclusivity & accessibility, I need your honesty

For all of my work, I try to find pricing that is as inclusive as possible. For some of my offers, you find graduated price options. Please be honest when choosing your contribution, considering the reflections listed above. If you are able to pay the medium or highest price option, I cordially invite you to do so. Like this, you contribute to me being able to continue my independent work and on the other hand make it possible that people with less money have the chance to benefit, e.g. in form of work exchange.

Practical orientation guide:
< 500€ income = lowest price option
< 1200€ income = medium price option
> 1200€ income = highest price option

These are approximate guidelines, as they obviously don’t take savings etc. into account.
In general:

Give what you can,
take what you need.

Thank you!

Being born into a world that is driven by money and mania of industrial growth, undermined by destructive behaviour towards ourselves and this beautiful planet that we are sharing with so many other precious beings—not being able to comprehend these destructive ways of interacting—I started questioning the way we operate as humans from a young age.

Stepping into my first yoga class in 2012 initiated a process of shedding the many layers of an image that I had created of myself. The beginning of an inward journey: a journey of becoming aware and unlearning at the same time. Likewise, an outward journey—from frantic Berlin city life, to one year living in an ashram, into a life in nature.

After spending years of intensively studying the inner worlds, I am currently especially interested in how to bring the inner & outer work together. How do we not only heal ourselves, individually but create life-enhancing & supportive communities for all beings? I am passionate about exploring the interface between the spiritual, the individual, the political & the collective as I believe it is crucial that we, the people, start to take responsibility and create the world that we wish for.
