Encontro - Camp 2019
Self-awareness in the abundance of nature
In July 2019, the Encontro Camp will take place at Living Gaia, in keeping with the desire to deepen and reshape the relationship between people and the natural world.
"Encontrar" - find, meet, encounter in Brazilian. Creating encounters with nature, with oneself and with others. The Encontro Camp combines the Encontro format, which Alexandra has already conducted twice with her husband Dada on Living Gaia, with many years of coaching experience in Berlin acquired together with Christin Colli.
Who we would like to address
On the one hand, our Encontro-Camp is aimed at people who already know us and who are interested in going deeper with us. It is also aimed at all people who would like to have a new experience of being connected to the natural world and who are interested in exchanging experiences with indigenous cultures. In the various workshops and offers, from which you can choose, all levels, i.e. body, mind and soul, are addressed and included. Beyond your role in everyday life - as a private person, couple, mother, parents, employee, entrepreneur or self-employee - the time in the camp offers you the framework for a special encounter with yourself. Children and teenagers are very welcome and are looked after with their own programme during selected workshops.
In the quartet with their partners Dada and Claudio, Alexandra and Christin offer a transforming framework within the retreat "Encontro Camp", by what is present on Living Gaia and has already been created blends in a special way with their joint coaching work in Berlin. Embedded in the natural world, discussion rounds, personal processes and constellations are particularly effective in the Encontro-Camp. Living Gaia also offers a special framework for encounters with the indigenous culture and healing through its connection to the people of the Huni Kuin.
