A one day experience that supports you in getting in touch with what inside of you wants to flourish, and what is preventing you from manifesting in its full power.

Inhibition: a feeling that makes one self-conscious and unable to act in a relaxed and natural way.

What strategies do you use to hide away from manifesting your pure being?

We often inhibit our own potential of growth by letting old (obsolete) strategies take over.

Especially in moments like now, when taking care of our own inner world easily gets placed in second place (or much further down the scale), it becomes even more necessary to create safe spaces where we can look at what is underneath the layers we show to the world.


The day will be powered by essential oils. Their energy will strengthen your intention of letting the true movement arise within you. We will be using several oils, one for each part of the process, thus exploring their movement in us and our movement in the common space in response.


Based on a U journey (Theory U), the workshop is guided using Social Presencing Theater, Authentic Movement, Holistic Dance and Meditation, as well as expressive arts. The methods will support a process of release of what is inhibiting us individually and collectively.


Expressing authentically, or even connecting to what we are actually feeling in each moment requires conditions of psychological safety. In the everyday life, we create layers of protection not only to avoid showing others what is emerging inside of us, but also to distract us from looking at it, when we believe that we can’t deal with it. Our goal is to offer a space where we can take at least a glimpse at what wants to be seen. A space built on trust. A space to connect to our essence inspired by essential oils.
