A week of exploration, healing and insight into the challenges of today, and your own role in it

by Ton van der Kroon & Anne Wislez

‘Go to the bottom of the ocean, to the ancient libraries of Atlantis, to the Circle within the circle within the circle, the holy of holiest in the heart of Atlantis. It is there where the goddess Gaia resides, waiting to be reborn from the depth of the ocean. Kiss her awake.’

Many of us ask the question: What can we do in this world of turmoil? What is our role in the greater picture? By delving into the mysteries of Atlantis we will listen to what this ancient civilisation has to tell us in this time of change and crisis. We will use meditation and music, ritual and sharing to explore the innerworld, while also making excursions on the island of Sao Miquel. We will visit the volcanoes as well as doing a whaletour to get in contact with the whales and dolphins. The week starts with an opening ceremony on monday evening october 3rd and ends with a closing ceremony on sundaymorning, october 9th. This gathering will be in alignment and preparation for the Climate Summit in the Sinai in november.

We work with the principles of Open Space, which means we create the program together on the spot.
The Open Space principles are:
1. The people who are there, are the right people
2. Whatever happens, is the right thing to happen
3. When it begins, it begins
4. When it is over, it is over
5. Follow the Law of Two Feet
6. Expect the Unexpected

We have two circles of sharing each day: at 10 AM in the morning and at 8 PM in the evening.
