Dervish In Progress Retreat
Remscheid / Germany
6th-10th April 2020Open to all levels!This meeting suggests a space for the participants to challenge their limits through whirling in single, couple or group forms; to stimulate their ability for the thrift of bodily energy; and through these abilities to reach their goal movement within their own genre, spending less energy, with a higher level of awareness.Whirling is not the main objective of this workshop. The greater goal is to improve one’s physical, emotional and mental awareness through whirling and the exercises prior to that. It leads the participants to perceive and accept what is befalling throughout whirling, and reach an innovative movement by means of whirling.This unique 5 days retreat will be held in the beautiful setting of the Akademie der Kulturellen Bildung in Remscheid/Germany!
