Welcome to another Intimate Connection Day Retreat at Wandellust in Zurich. This month we open the space for intimacy through voice, dance and rituals.
Part 1: 13:00-14:00
In part 1 we will arrive together as a group, in our hearts, minds and bodies as we warm-up, through songs, games and group sharings.
Part 2: 14:00-15:30
In part 2 we will begin our journey of intimacy as we work in partners and small groups to connect through dance, story telling and meditation. We will learn the meanings behind certain Mantra songs and embody their stories in our movements and voice as we sing and dance for each other. There will be a mixture of zouk, contact improvisation and singing.

Does the word intimate mean physical?
