🌈 Embodiment je t’aime comes to your homes again, this time in your kitchens for a communal funky cooking session to give you some energy and help digest a week of mostly mental nourishment.

So we are happy to invite you to join 🔥Gym Brulée🔥, a tender and juicy session for igniting our inner fire and letting the lava flow all around, warming up our entire body, gladdening our heart and palate.

PROGRAM

We will start with a soft touchy-feely warm up and steadily take up more spicy moves as we will be preparing a creamy red lentil soup and make magic chapati to accompany it, letting our flames dance together, burn together on the tastiest tunes.

Needs: As always, choose comfortable clothes and if you want to spice it up, go for it, add some hot hues like red and orange.

Ingredient list for cooking:
(Amounts are just indications, this is really feeling-it-cooking and you can go for more or less according to needs and tastes.)
- 250 g red lentils (you can soak them 1-2 hours before but it’s not obligatory, red lentils cook easily)
- half or 1 onion - garlic (optional)
- sesame oil / sunflower oil / ghee
- 2-3 carrots
- 2-3 pealed, cooked tomatoes
- chilly (optional)
- spices: fresh ginger, turmeric, black pepper, coriander (ideally fresh), cumin, fennel, chilly (optional)
- salt
- lime or lemon (optional)

- 2 cups of flour (ideally whole or semi-whole)
- water

🧡 ❤️ Looking forward to meeting you all ❤️ 🧡

“We do not ignore the use of the meaning in dreaming. But it is good to recognize that there is also dreaming in meaning.” 

― Tenzin Wangyal, The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep

Waking up, 

moving through deep layers of sleep

--my dream changes--

a lively band is playing over in the corner of the room

--a small dance floor. 

I step out from the table and begin to move in time to the music. 

Aware of shadowy figures watching me.

(Ione)

How do our beings come together? 

An unconscious journey will take us into an ethereal place, where content, form and meaning do not obey any laws. 

Bodies are fluid and malleability pervades the surrounding.  

Join us at the soft place,

let’s unearth some myths and create new paths and rituals,

and please leave your waking body at home.

Led by Ilgin Akseloglu, Alexandra Duvekot, Rosa Ronsdorf, Georgia Stellin & Anna Piroska Tóth.

When:15:00-16:00 

Where: Buitcentrum, Outdoors 

Meeting point: 14:50 at the entrance door of the main building where the kitchen is.

Needs: Come as you are. We will be outside and standing during the session. Light shoes to be able to feel the ground and comfy clothes are of preference.

We will start with bodily practice proposed by Anna - based on qi gong - to bring our attention on our bodies and to cultivate a sensation of groundedness. Then we will continue with collective storytelling and dream-weaving led by Alexandra and Ilgın; to pave paths and to grow branches between each other's imagination. 

 

This student initiative is facilitated by DAI by making it part of the syllabus 2020-2021 and by providing space and time for gathering. It is embedded in the curriculum component Factory 2.0 and participation is credited with ECTS.
