UNITING IN OUR HUMANITY

A Gathering of Palestinian and Israeli people, rooted in body-based practices
UNITING IN OUR HUMANITY

In English

We have initiated this Gathering, believing in the ripple effects of small, good action, in healing the divide between individuals and nationalities. Together, we can go a long way.

This is a heartfelt invitation to Israelis and Palestinians, to come together, witness, listen, and acknowledge one another’s pain; give room to needs, emotions and stories; create threads of connection.

Using practices of movement, sharing and listening, somatic healing and grief work, we will move and be moved together.

We are creating a bravely safe space to meet, with our bodies before our minds and with movement before discussion.

'DIFFERENT SPECIES, ONE COMMUNITY' YOGA WITH DONOVAN LORENZO FARQUHARSON

In English

A rendition of traditional Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and his own methodologies create a language of yoga everyone can understand.

As Donovan’s spiritual and philosophical approach to life is connected to all sentient beings, he was invited to share his teachings by Aegina locals to support Vrouva Farm. This animal sanctuary saves countless animals that were abused, neglected, abandoned or overworked.

Through compassion for all forms of life, the spirit and the soul could reach deeper state of consciousness and awareness on wildlife and animal welfare.

Donavan says « if one can breathe, one can pursue the path of yoga ». Animals might then be the most relevant example of physical and spiritual practice through their natural ability for resilience, forgiveness, empathy and innate need for movement and organic breathe as a way to communicate, soothe and care for themselves.
