“I found out many more possibilities to walk through life and realizing my dreams”
“NLP gives me strong resources to deal with challenges in a positive way”
Neuro Linguistic Programming is a way to master your life in a successful and meaningful way.
NLP gives you a set of techniques that will support you in relating with others and yourself. It is an approach for personal development and communication that can empower to achieve goals in life and work. Working on a neurological level (neuro), a language level (linguistic) and on behaviour (programming) it gives grip and clarity in processes of change.
NLP has been developed in 1970′s by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. Robert Dilts is a co-developer.

“It makes me feel free and I was surprised we were making music all together very soon”
Drum circles has a kind of magic that makes people shine, that makes people connect in a wonderful way. Everybody plays drums and other good rhythm instruments together. In musical terms this drum circle is like a big jam session. However most of the people are not musicians and there is something else than music knowledge that makes the drum circle work. The “secret” is the facilitation, we can say facilitation of human potential just as well as we say facilitation of music.
This is a setting where enthusiasm unfolds together with listening skills. Creativity blossoms and allowance of everybody’s participation more than control of what to play gives real joy in the circle. The facilitator skillfully guides the rhythms made, in a direction that gives musical meaning. Participants learn to play by doing it, not from trying to manifest instructions. As the participants make up the rhythms in a “jam session like” way every drum circle is unique. When entering the drum circle at the beginning; a journey starts. From maybe being a bit uncertain and hesitating, to finding out that daring to make sounds really works. A beginner can personally evolve from not knowing that he/she can play music to knowing from experience that he/she can. A musician can evolve from being bound by concepts that limit the expression, to more freedom. From thinking that music is something to perform for listeners, to a bigger understanding; that music is for community interaction as well. The group will also evolve. The beginning is as individuals being guided by the facilitator. After a while the group usually is like an entity with it’s own consciousness. The ability to adapt, and to be in tune and rhythm with each other, gives the whole thing a more dance like feeling. Transitions from one rhythm to another are made with ease and grace. Hesitation is gone and so are a few limitative belief systems.
Arthur Hull has developed this style of drum circle facilitation. He is a very inspiring rhythm ambassador and dedicated to building community using rhythm and music to inspire groups of all types, ages and backgrounds.

“Now I know that a lot of learning happens when I fall out of the rhythm. That gives me freedom and even joy in making ‘wrong’ steps”
TaKeTiNa is a rhythmic, musical experience and dynamic meditation that opens our awareness. It brings relaxation while being in movement; this brings learning about being in the flow of life. In these rhythm journeys, personal development goes hand in hand with musical learning.
What is it?
We sing, clap and step in the rhythm guided with live music of the surdu drum and the berimbau. The understanding of rhythm comes in the body; it is therefore an intense and direct experience. It is a natural way of learning, the capacity for rhythm is inborn: “We all have it!” What we develop are sensory and motor skills that are the rhythmic foundation of all music and movement. Whether we walk, dance or make music. For over 20 years, Reinhard Flatischler (founder and developer of TaKeTiNa) has actively researched rhythm. The health effects of TaKeTiNa have been thoroughly investigated and proven by several doctors and scientists in Germany.
Many people all over the world do TaKeTiNa; those who want to develop themselves personally and also musicians and singers who want to improve body awareness and rhythm. You do not need any experience to start with TaKeTiNa. Beginners and people with experience move together in the same circle. It is an individual group experience where you find your own flow carried by rhythm inside a group.
“When I see the restricting patterns now, it gives me direction how to continue”
“Constellation work gives me another perspective to possible solutions”
With organization constellation we look from a systemic point of view. This is giving us insight in the dynamics between people, teams, goals or other factors. For organization it can be useful to open up new perspectives in situations that are somehow blocked or not in a full flow.
Constellation work has first been developed by Bert Hellinger and later others contributed to this with e.g. organization-constellations and structure-constellations.
How could this work for you?
> a half day or day session based upon a specific (team) question
> a serie of sessions to learn to apply this systemic view in your own work and organisation
> a special 1-day workshop to experience constellations with horses
“When I dance, I am life”
” In movement, I discover new aspects of myself that make me more aware of vitality, expression, connection, joy and meaning”
If body and mind work together as one, we can live our full potential in a strong way. Dancing is like walking life in a musical way.
Isn’t movement essential to realize our projects, our company goals and our personal dreams?
Biodanza creates a process to embrace our full potential through movement. New and powerful experiences will let us reconnect with ourselves and with others. This “Dance of life” is based upon the 5 lines of human development: Vitality, Creativity, Affectivity, Transcendence and Sexuality. Dancing is one of the innate abilities of man, as well as singing and takes us to our roots in the depths of being.
Rolando Toro from Chile created Biodanza. He found a genius way to grow and live our full potential with music, dance, and another as the mirror of who we are.
How could this work for you?
Change is happening all the time. We move, choose direction, interact and create constantly. Everybody adds to the result, everybody joins in the process. But, how do we keep each other inspired? How can we connect in a demanding time that is fast and complex? What brings flow to the team, so that we can enjoy being on a professional journey together?
To reach excellence, the difference that makes the difference is our skill for human connections. It is our capacity to relate. If we truly connect, we make the world turn. When we shine and are happy, we also bring out best in each other. Everybody benefits and business blossoms. But relating to each other requires personal strength, openness and courage to discover. This cannot only be done in a rational way. For long lasting change we also need to work with our emotions. This involves working with our most essential instrument for creation; the body. We have a whole being approach.
It is therefore that we guide “heartbeat evolution journeys”. Empowering experiences that bring new perspectives. Experiences that are felt deep, because we totally join into the experience. Moments that give inspiration and reflection, so that we find more and better ways for cooperation and achieving our goals. We all make the journey happen. We connect with each other in this journey. We are the change ourselves.
Depending on the change you aim for, your team, the company landscape and the starting-point we develop a custom heart beat evolution journey using standard methods. Drum-, dance-, rhythm-journeys, constellations are all intense experiences that bring many metaphors where perspectives open-up. With NLP we can add techniques for personal development, reflection and fruitful communication. Here you can read more about the international and proven methodologies that we use.
