Über die Veranstaltung
Klafreit Express (from “expression”) is an innovative course concept bringing together people for 12 weeks and giving them space to express their artistic/creative selves. This course is designed for individuals seeking to heal (become whole) by getting in touch with their true selves. In the end of the 12 weeks there will be a final performance of the group's artistic co-creation.
Whatever emerges within the group’s creative interaction in these 12 weeks, a play, fabrics, a music video, a piece of music, a painting, a performance, words in all forms, etc. …, will be presented to an audience by the end of the 12 weeks. We will work with whatever the participants want to express. That way, a Klafreit Express-course is utterly self-governed and democratic. Its focus is fun, play and "mindless" action (wohooo). The way it unfolds is 100% dependant on its participants (including the course language).
Throughout the 12 weeks, we'll have guest artists and experts in the field of psychology and mindfulness techniques co-facilitating sessions with main facilitator Anna Sibel Tschapke to enrich the participant's experience.
"This course's focus is not on understanding 'healing content' conceptually. It is about strengthening the ability to experience things more directly prior to concepts. This pure experiencing (...) brings us close to the core of what we really are: The indescribable 'blank page of peace, freedom and potential' which can only be fathomed through sensing. And the more you practice it you'll find that it really is another form of intelligence. One that allows for a kind of psychological freedom that a continuous entanglement with thinking and concepts does not" (Anna Sibel Tschapke)
A common misperception in overcoming the Ego (see Eckhart Tolle's definition of the Ego) is that we have to suppress it and its needs. However, that only strengthens it. This misperception has led to most of us suppressing what we really think and feel, piling up old emotions that block us from inside. In extreme cases that can lead to crime and disease. It definitely leads to overall unease, overthinking, hypocrite behaviour and (self-) sabotage.
The ego loves conflict and drama, and it will inevitably create it! That’s its job. The only way out of this is through. In order to not work our problems out on other people and offload our hard stuff in our relationships, we have to find another outlet. Klafreit Express is such an outlet. You befriend your Ego by showing it respect. You show it respect by expressing it, not by suppressing it.
The 12-week structure with weekly meeting and the concept of the "inner artist" are inspired by Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way".
Ok, so how does this work?
We are embarking on this journey on October 6, 2020 in Emser Str. 124 (WerkStadt Kulturverein) in Berlin-Neukölln. Klafreit Express is a weekly course. We meet for 12 weeks with the first session being on Tuesday, October 6th. Then we meet every following Tuesday at 6pm and probably take 2,5-3 hours each session.
Since the course is designed to be a journey with a set dramaturgic composition, it is important that participants make sure to be available on at least 8 out of the 12 meetings prior to signing up for the course. Maximum number of participants will be 10 people. Joining the group, if spots will be still vailable, after the official beginning of the course is only possible if the number of missed sessions don't exceed the first two. This is to ensure a sense of security within the group as we will be sharing sensitive and information. Also, we will be building up trust and a space for intimicity, especially in the first weeks, which can be disturbed by a new person entering the group.
The regular price for the course is 225,- €. You can book it directly via this website (see below). Those signing up before the end of August 2020 will have access to the Early Bird price of 190,- € (just click the "Early Bird"-option).
Apart from that, there is an option to get 60,- € off the regular price in case you would like to join but you are currently in a "low/no-income-situation". In that case, please just write me an Email with the respective credentials and I will be able to send you a 60,- €-voucher.
Do you have questions? Let me know and write an email to email@example.com or just sign up via this website.
