We're looking forward to welcoming you to Potsdam!
Historically, Potsdam has been a place to retreat from the glittering lights of the big city of Berlin and find purpose and direction again, together with nature.
This is a workshop for women* who want to live their power. This is an invitation to show up however you are, with all that you are, and be welcomed for who you want to be.
Join us here and take a time of retreat and focus for yourself. Step into a circle of feminine* power, deep listening and generosity. We'd love to have you with us!
*Our invitation is extended to all people who identify as women or feel comfortable attending a workshop that is geared toward women.
It is time to do, what only you can do: What do you need to trust the wind beneath your wings?
Es ist Zeit zu tun, was nur du tun kannst: Was brauchst du, um dem Wind unter deinen Flügeln zu vertrauen?
Please note: This workshop will take place in English, but all of the hosting team also speak German and we will have the possibility to play the Flow Game in German as well.
