MOVEMENT &
PLAY


Workshops such as conscious and wild dance, connective and centering yoga, balancing qigong, playful acro yoga, finding your point of gravity in between bodies in contact improvisation, tuning into your animal body in playfight and shifting perspective with hand balance. Conscious movement can support in sensing our body and give us a stronger somatic awareness. Play can connect our bodies with others and our own energy in an intuitive way.

SELF CONNECTION & EXPRESSION

Workshops such as deepening into mediation, tapping into your creativity in arts, healing vibrations, get to know your body in dance and discovering your unique expression in voicing. As we ground in our bodies, and the moment, our genuine creative self-expression arises as an inner spontaneous impulse and can be brought forward.

WISDOM &
AWARENESS


Lectures and workshops exploring topics such as the nervous system and how we can self-regulate, relating from sensing the body and getting familiar with one's own boundaries, embodied facilitation/leadership, how we can live and direct our actions from what is important to us, family constellations and the gifts from the collective field, nature connection and what role the body has in creating healthy habits. Learning from the wisdom and intelligence the body has to offer us in all different areas of life.

COMMUNITY &
CELEBRATION


Coming together in the evenings for magical concerts, sound healing journeys, ecstatic dance and open stage. Embodying the present moment and celebrating being alive!

GARDENING, FOOD FORESTRY AND KINSHIP

During 2019, after a time at The Ecovillage design education in Switzerland, she and her partner started their first food forestry project at an Ecovillage in Germany.
 
Permaculture and food forestry in combination with embodiment has been an entry point for Elin to engage with life fully. As we start to feel our own body, our emotions, and sensations, we may also start to feel what is around us and we start to feel the earth. It is clear in most indigenous culture that the word nature is redundant, why would we need this word? We only need it if we don’t recognize ourselves as inherently belonging cocreators in our ecosystems. She wishes to weave these treads between human and ecosystem. Elin will explore these topics, with simple practices and inquiries.
