Diving deeply and freely into a world of play and cooperation is the best way to become fully present and awaken our abilities to be and act spontaneously. It is a great way to become connected with others, understanding our own needs, and liberate ourselves from everything excessive.

During the seven-day workshop we will experience some of the most powerful and noteworthy techniques originating from improvisational theatre. We will also spend a lot of time exploring our thoughts, feelings, and dilemmas through a unique practice of revealing the inner dialogue – a silent dialogue we all have, but rarely admit publicly. In this psychosomatic-guided process of coming to know ourselves, we become authentic, overcome our inner-critic, and regain confidence to be who we really are.

The workshop is unique in the way it is facilitated: Martin, a professional actor, and Sebastian, a professional psychologist, have been friends for many years and decided to combine their skills by creating a workshop that is light-hearted and fun, but at the same time contains depth.

The workshop aims at:

  • Allowing ourselves to make a mistake and not to be overly critical about it
  • Immersing into the present moment
  • Eliminating the fear of speaking in front of others
  • Experiencing the ease of play in our everyday lives
  • Slowing down and be gentle with ourselves
  • Liberating ourselves from excessive self-observation and decision paralysis
  • Gaining courage to try new things
  • Thinking less and act more
  • Discovering our authenticity and natural confidence
