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.

Human Beings are so extraordinary and powerful Beings that with expanded awareness and the right tools can reconnect to what is hidden and thereby become richer, lighter and more joyful and healed, balanced beings. I love my work. It is my dharma and passion.”

JASMIN SEPAHZAD
PLAYFIGHT, COMMUNITY AND AUTHENTIC RELATING

Come and explore the connection to yourself and others in playfulness and strength.

 

Playfight is a holistic practice that reclaims the innocent and non-violent quality of playful fighting typical of kids and animals and roots it in mindfulness, emotional awareness and authentic relating.

 

Playfight is a personal journey and a tribal experience. We gather in a circle, and Playfight in the middle. We bond, we relate and we support each other.

 

We fight but there are no winners or losers. This is a space to connect with our primal side, our inner strength and the wisdom of our bodies. We take care of ourselves, and our limits, expanding them with kindness and fun.

 

In one word: Playfight is connection.

DIANA BOLO
SINGER & SONGWRITER, KIRTAN & MEDICINE SONG

Diana Bolo is a singer & songwriter who sees her life mission in empowering people to sound and sing. She started writing her own music after being an opera singer for several years.

MALOU BLACK
VOCAL COACH & SINGER SONGWRITER

I believe that being a great singer, means being confidently connected to all parts of you that resonate along with your voice. I make you sing and express yourself in ways you never thought possible. We´ll align you to your (hidden) emotions, life story, and empower your mind. So that combined with the right techniques you can back yourself up. And you´ll sing in an authentic way that touches the hearts of many, including your own.

 

When I was young, I have tried out several professional places for me to vocally grow. But I never felt really safe, and the main focus was always on perfection of vocal techniques. While being the sensitive person I still am, my passion for music was rooted in the feelings I experienced while singing, and deep down I knew I needed to overcome my own limiting beliefs, my insecurities, the downtalking side of myself, in order to start to flourish.

 

I started to do the inner work, to heal the broken pieces within me. By doing yoga, mindfulness, reiki, family constellation work, and much more. Since then I gradually stepped into my power, and my voice expanded with me. Now at 38 I can say I´m no longer worrying about the right technique. My main aim is to go all in. Whenever I sing. Whatever I sing. And to enjoy the ride.

ELIN NORDENBERG
GARDENING, FOOD FORESTRY AND KINSHIP

Elin is our gardener and food forest enthusiast here at Mundekulla. She has done the Permaculture design course with Kostersträdgårdar and Lilla skräddaröd farm and is working with permaculture for several years now. At the end of 2019, after an inspiring time at The Ecovillage design education in Glarisegg Switzerland, she and her partner decided to start their first own food forestry project at an Ecovillage in Germany.

 

Permaculture and specifically 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. It is her wish to weave these treads between human and ecosystem, contribution to a culture which is regenerative rather than extractive. Elin will explore these topics during the festival, with simple practices and inquiries.
