The various books that I have read on the topic forests and trees, in addition to my own observations of nature, show very clearly how diverse and complex this subject matter is. Since we are on the verge of destroying our planet, I feel the growing need to engage with this topic and become more aware of its consequences on our habitat. Trees literally help us breathe. By ignoring their need, we are ignoring our own needs – as we are all interconnected. Turning to art, to our work, certainly helps us find a deeper connection to these important life partners, the trees. Ingo Reulecke

PACKING LIST

Bring an appropriate yoga mat with a good grip. We will practice meditation and yoga every day.

Clothes: We will be working outside a lot. Please bring appropriate shoes (running shoes work best for me) and comfortable warm clothes (layers work best). Choose clothes that not only feel comfortable, but you are comfortable being seen in. When we are moving outside, the performative aspect is automatically there. For the kind of work we do, I advise discrete, simple, but nice clothes.

NOTE

Maximum number or participants is 15.

– It is possible to only take part in the Meditation and Yoga Sessions. They are open to everyone, but registration is required.

– Please keep in mind that small changes to the schedule and given information is possible.

I look forward to travelling with you!
