personal & collective empowerment
Sunday, 13.05.2018 (Mother's Day)
@ Syggrou Grove, Northern Suburbs, Athens

Parents of children of "the Walnut" Waldorf nursery school in Athens had the opportunity to participate in an experiential workshop for adults, inspired by fertility, motherhood, connection, authentic expression through body activities, moving inside the natural landscape of the grove, unity singing, circle dance, gratitude cards, personal empowerment & solidarity games.
The workshop took place inside the serene Syggrou Grove in the Northern Suburbs of Athens, on Sunday, the 13th of May 2018 (Mother’s Day). The parents experienced games/activities as a strong invitation to a deeper connection with the Self and Joy, cultivation of trust, grounding, humour, creativity, honouring our inner powers/potential, heart opening.


The l a n g u a g e of c o n n e c t i o n invites us
to connect with our deeper qualities,
to explore and identify our needs and values
to be in the position to articulate and communicate them (verbally, non-verbally) to ourselves and the others
to establish peaceful relationships which support our self-growth and that of the others
to invigorate peace culture within human interactions
to inspire younger ages (children, teenagers) and support them in their journey towards maturity, efficiency, power, wisdom, compassion, deep happiness.
It supports us in understanding our co-humans of every age after being able to understand ourselves.
It develops a peaceful communication, often through disagreement, which becomes the platform to appreciate the present moment and the gifts of this disagreement.
The language of connection identifies itself as both assertive and empathic, promoting genuine communication, self-growth and unconditional love.
It empowers ourselves, beyond any traces of fear and promotes us not only to healthy and efficient communicators but mainly self-fulfilled human entities.

During the experiential work for adults, we address and work upon the following questions:
- What choices do I have when the other(s) say(s) «Nο»?
- Could disagreement become a solid platform to connect with the Other? How?
- How do we emit connection messages through our holistic presence (body posture, facial expression, eye contact/communication, gestures, tone of voice, angle of approach, distance etc.)?
- Which are our options in the moment of crisis/conflict?
- Why the “don’t” and the “never” disempower and demolish communication bridges?
- How many ways do I have to ask for something?
- Are we able to trace what our co-human feels and needs when s/he goes out of own peace mode?
- How do we build positivity and peaceful energy in our family/group/school/working environment?
- How do we take care of ourselves in crisis moment, keeping the connection with the other at the same time?
- Are we aware of our psychological ‘buttons’? Do our needs pass through the other side?
- How do we manage to cultivate the value of respect for ourselves and our kid(s) and simultaneously offer guidance and experience? How do we offer this guidance?
- How could we support the establishment of unanimity & mutuality amongst people of principle(i.e. two parents, school teachers, educators, job supervisors, group leaders etc.)?
- Which are the qualities of praise which promote growth mindset and the spark towards life endeavours within the individual/group?
- How do we become models of wisdom and positivity without talking?
- How do we ‘celebrate’ with our group/family everyday? Why celebrating is of high importance?

Participants are invited to work via
- simulation dialogues and case-studies from everyday incidents ,emerging from the participants’ experiences
