This is the third seminar from the cycle of time-out seminar days within a year, which is dedicated to different accesses to transformational forces and healing spaces within us. This is the third seminar from the cycle of time-out seminar days within a year, which is dedicated to different accesses to transformational forces and healing spaces within us. Research shows that ecstatic trance rituals offer our brains excellent creative opportunities to leave old ingrained patterns of evaluation and concepts, to “un-learn”, so to speak, in order to create space for visions and embodied re-directions (embodiment)
(for reference: Rittner, 2017, 2013, 2011 – see www.sabinerittner.de/en/publikations/).
This ecstatic potential dormant in each of us has been harnessed by the mystical path of Sufism for almost a thousand years to reach unity, to merge with the source of creation. In its origins, it is also inspired by the ancient shamanic traditions of the Bakse, the shamans of the nomadic Turkic tribes of the Orient.

Beyond all ideas, beyond what is wrong and right, there is a place: let’s meet there!
Dschalāl ad-Dīn Maulānā Rūmī (1207 – 1273)

Blumen und Sonnenschein

On this retreat day we will learn both gentle, meditative, and ecstatic trance techniques of Sufism with intense breathing, singing, in movement and dance, listening to Sufi poetry and stories, and also repeatedly immersing ourselves in silence. In the afternoon we will be accompanied for the chanted mantra prayer (Dhikr) and the whirling dance (Mevlewi-Sema) by the rousing, ecstatic life music of the Sufi music group “Hosh Neva” from Mannheim. During a delicious vegetarian dinner (on request) the evening can end together in conversation or in silence by the fire in the garden. The seminar is suitable for participants who want to treat themselves to an inspiring day of time-out, who have an interest in self-experience, who want to tap into resources within themselves again, who feel a deep longing for mystical reconnection (re-ligio) within themselves…. You can take new strength, inspiration and impulses for healing processes of change into your personal everyday life.
