Seminar Coach: Sabine Rittner

This year-long group offers experienced participants the opportunity to explore the healing mind-expanding potential of trance states in depth, in order to open up new spaces for themselves and to make the experiences and insights gained from them usable in a healing way in everyday life and work.

The point is to question, to review habitual, well-worn patterns of perception, because the creative potential of trance states lies primarily in stimulating our neuronal networks for “confusing and unlearning”. For this purpose, paths leading both into tranquility and into arousal (ecstasy) are offered. The center of each meeting is the ritual with one of the “ritual postures”® rediscovered by the anthropologist Prof. Felicitas Goodman. In this group, very few and particularly extensive rituals are offered on each date, so that a deepening exploration of one’s own worlds of perception and consciousness is possible while “traveling” in different dimensions of reality. It is about eliciting the melody of uniqueness from our body as the instrument of our soul.

Afterwards there is the possibility to end the seminar day in the evening chatting or in silence, dancing, having dinner together, taking a walk or sitting comfortably by the fire.


Various ancient and modern methods of targeted consciousness change and guidance, such as “Ritual Postures and Ecstatic Trance” according to Prof. Felicitas Goodman, trance dance and drumming, sound trance and hypnosis, Sufi meditation and shamanic dances, breathing techniques, voice and ritual chants, body painting, etc. We use creative expression (movement, painting, writing, instruments, our voice) and circle talk to give shape to our impressions, to process and integrate them
