The Lost Art of Contemplation
In this workshop, we are going to investigate the questions ‘who am I? Who is the other?’ We have a strong belief in a solid ‘I’, ‘self’ and ‘others’. Based on this notion we make all sorts of decisions. ‘I’ is our closest advisor in all that we do and we mostly follow his orders. But is ‘I’ really so solid as we believe it is? Are ‘others’ really so different from us?

For anyone interested in gaining an embodied experience and deeper understanding of themselves, others and the world. We will explore together—through contemplation—our thoughts, beliefs and relationship to what we simply call call ‘me’ and most importantly we will enquire if and how this ‘me’ contributes to us being happy. These contemplations are grounded in authentic Buddhist philosophy and shared in an experimental, open, accessible, down to earth, and fun way.
