facilitated by Chrystalleni Loizidou and Hülya Dede
In the beginning there is flow. There is the “being in the rhythms of nature”, the “being in social connection”, with uninterrupted experimentation and creativity, the feeling of the elements and the seasons, the observing and the doing, the running and climbing and picking fruit and making shelter, and getting sand between your toes. There is the joy and gratitude of harvest. But then the care-work that reproduces the “being in the rhythms of nature” is imprisoned by top-down notions of education and productivity. These impositions dominate the doing and life, so they separate us from the flow and our rhythms. Being and doing are turned into work and people into things. Thus the world is crazy, and revolts are practices of rediscovering connection and rhythm.
This is where you can find the latest version of our Toolkit for Connective Practices for Community Flow and families in transition. For now this takes the form of a folder on Google Drive.

From Greek history and mythology to the myth of Genesis we explore the ripples of losing the connection of co-creating life, of losing our paradisial innocence. We heal by enhancing our Inner, outer and greater body acceptance through stripping layers of conditioning.
Remember that time you sat together in front of a youtube video, with lots of your friends, taking notes about how to handle conflict in your relationships, and then talking about it? We do this regularly. Get in touch if you’re interested.
