Intro: Being welcome
What is well-being & quality of life:
Well-being is determined by all kind of factors (in quality & quantity), like for example: what you eat (You are what you eat, Der Mensch ist, was er ißt) and drink, and what you consume (taking the well-being of others into account: humans, animals, plants, the planet, anything that lives), how you move (travel, sports), how you sleep and relax, how you relate to work and free time, your social life, and how often you are in nature.
“Quality of Life is: How present you are in what you do.”
In the workshop you practice to turn off the automatic pilot (for example reacting to fast caused by anger, resistance or escaping), by doing selected exercises.
Being aware in a mild way of what is presenting itself in this moment, without being carried away in the stream of thoughts, feelings, emotions and physical sensations.
It is not about the goal, but about the journey itself, being in the moment. Seeing the now. Being soft towards yourself. Being welcome.
Like this you increase your feeling of well-being and the quality of life!

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ —a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
