A Space for Softness
A peer led space that explores and nurtures the softness within us, as we move through winter.
6 evenings in Amsterdam starting at the winter solstice
slow practices • sharings • silence • support
December 21 • February 29, from 19:00-21:30
What to expect:
During this wintery program we will co-create 6 gatherings in which we will search for answers to the question:
‘What does it mean to stay soft within a hard world?’
Alongside 5 other peers you will start on a journey of exploring 'acts of softness' and how you want to integrate these acts into your life. We come together every other week to share our perspectives, practices, questions, and silence for support. During these sessions we will emphasise on creating time for 'being', as opposed to the 'doing', and pay attention to the communal process as well as our individual questions.
A wintery program for:
• Fast breaths to slow down
• Loud minds to become silent
• Tensed bodies to become soft
Whether inviting softness is already a big part of your life, or whether it is new or challenging to you, everyone is welcome. This safe space is based on the principles non-judgement, deep listening and co-creation.
Do it to:
• Create more space for soft acts and to learn more about the softness within yourself
• Step into a cross-pollination of experiences, perspectives and tools on the same theme
• Connect with and feel the support of a group of likeminded people
