Thinkpiece: My Berlin Sabbatical

Poetic, tender and peaceful, that’s what we felt when we first saw her paintings. We didn’t want to withhold that from you. We met Floortje and spoke about her art, about the key to ourselves, her beliefs, the meaning of nature and its core message.

“Besides love at first sight, there is also love at first touch. And maybe it goes even deeper,” at least that’s what Vladimir Nabokov once said. That touch is special, we know. It can cause goose bumps and have a magical effect on us, especially when it comes from our loved ones. But can touch also have a healing effect on us? And is touch even vital for our survival? Dr. Böhme examines touch and physical closeness in Sweden and was able to tell us more about it.

Of course, we all know how essential it is to breathe. Essential for survival.
But did you also know that trauma and inner blockages can be solved by breathing? “Biodynamic Breath is a holistic method for releasing mental and physical blockages.” At least that’s what Michael Lindemann, expert for Biodynamic Breathwork, says.

Thinkpiece: About chance and failed love

She says, “I still have to think about him a lot.” And smiles. We meet on a park bench, she with her newspaper, me with my coffee. Actually, it should only be a short walk on a Sunday morning. Instead I met this older woman. Quite by chance. An encounter that I won’t forget so soon. She looks at the empty playground. “I often come here. Actually every morning. Then she puts her newspaper aside. Her fingers are tender despite the many wrinkles, her eyes shine as she begins to speak. Despite her age, she has not lost her zest for life.
