With breathing exercises and exercises on bodily warnings, Qi Gong, gestural prayers, accompanied by simple contemplative dances, we awaken all our senses to be totally present in silence.
Sessions in silence 4-5 hours approx. diem.


Perceiving the silent space in me, opens access to discover the preciousness and new possibilities of learning development about one’s inner being.


Carefully meditative walking allows us to be present even when moving and helps us to integrate the exercises into daily life.

Possibility of personal interviews.

We practice in silence

A basic knowledge is not necessary, but the availability of new learning.
