Interview mit Manitonquat (2014 & 2015)

How is this camp for us? Yeah, I think successfull. I`m very impressed with all the work that everybody is doing. Starting with the organizers from the beginning, lot of thought went into it. And all the people continue to volunteer to do all the things that need to be done. Everything is running smoothly. It`s also relativ unusual for a large group of people that we haven`t had any big upsets or problems. (Not yet, Ellika) It`s a slide for me to run out for (?) were almost there…We only have tonights celebrations, ceremonies. Tomorrow is clan-meeting and the last good-bye. And all has been wonderful.

And I gave a couple of days workshops to my new book about caring for children which I think thats the most important thing we have to work with. I`m very happy that so many people are excited about the whole process. About what we doing, about playing with the children. The ones who have read the book are very excited about the book. Some people told me from my workshops here already just from coming knowing nothing about us. Nothing but they felt completely supported and liberated and just cheerfully grateful that they ran into us. And all of us is happy. That makes me feel good.

Well, we had more of a group this year then before. And we had a couple of people who paying good attention to them. And we will determine to reach out to them because the youth are very important to me. They got very isolated from society there. They are at the point were they are looking whats going on they getting pushed here and there. And they are making up their minds whats outthere. But they don`t much like it. And so they creating their own culture. And we need them. We really do. We need to reach out to them. Get more support them or get more input from youth culture.

About the swedlodge… I don`t always caring about doing swedlodge because I`ve done a lot of in my lifetime. And I have a lot of other things that I wanted to move. And it takes some quite a lot of time. Likely (?) Ellika is very supportive of the swedlodge and makes sure if there is anybody who wants it that it happens. And I was happy that the young people really wanted it, the youth. For my part being able to present that there for them I was unfortunately not able to go throu the entire ceremony inside. Because I realised that if I did I probably would finish of the week here. It was more important to everything else than…Likely I have a wonderful partner that can do the whole thing. And she appointed to me afterwards that it was very important for those youth. And a lot of got a grate deal out of it. So it was a really good thing to do. But you need to talk to them. If you got to find out how it really was.

We try to play every day with the children but with the various…the day been taken up so much by empathize (?) it. The amount of time we had to play with the children was less then I would like. However I would say then it was quality time. I got some pictures today in doing some more play. We got some people out there that really getting into. And the children were loving it. Thats the main thing.

When we began the community-process I was 48.  Cause I had been part of many communities in the past. And had some good ideas about how they should be or what will be good for them. It was a combination of myself an Emmi, who is the mother of my children, wanting the best kind of atmosphere for our boys to grow up in. We began the process when our oldest boy was just two years old. And the other one came along about three years later.

So they grew up in this community that we with other friends created. The one that was created expressively to respect and honour the children as full human beings. Listen to them, make sure that theire wants and needs get expressed and heard and that we all act together. And we had a lot of things to do that. And we were very supportive of their wants and their feelings. We had a lot of fun. We played together. We had a play-day every month were all the whole community went out to play with the children all day long and eat out and cook out together.

And we all used this process of co-counceling that now we are calling supportive listening to help with each other ot find ourselves and our group-relationships and our personal relationships and all that.

It was wonderful. 20 years from the initial-start. Where we had a banner: “In us we trust”. To the final end, when our boys had got to collage, people were leaving to do other projects. And I wanted to expand that community. I wanted a one much larger than the one that we had. I wanted it to reach out further into the world and spread. I wanted an Eco-Village. And I wanted it to be the way we functioned. Thats what lend to our eventually leaving the community and doing the process of making camps and workshops and circles over here in Europe.

I met her when I was doing a workshop in Kopenhagen. And whenever I would come to Europe she would organize things for me and we were travel together. And then she would come to my community. So I had the experience of her community, Kristiania and she had the experience of mine in Mellanokit. And then we build our dream of an Eco-Village. Large enough to be its own culture but functioning the same way that our small community did in the U.S.

What is the Circle Way? Is an combination as its developed now. Capitalized the way we use it. Its also referred to by another group called “Peer-Spirit” that uses the CircleWay in their own way to get groups together, to get people harmonized and working together. They put out a book, called the CircleWay, which has the sub-titel “A leader in every chair”. And its very good. What they don`t have.

What makes ours different is all this supportive-listening tool which we developed from co-counceling.

The whole idea for both of these circleway-projects and others, I think, stams from, my experience, stams from the old experience of native american communities, traditionally. Thats something that I know something about. Probably more than most of the people that are doing communities now.

Because I have lived on reservations, I have traveled through reservations. I have spent lot of time with elders all over North America, Canada and the U.S. And talked to many people about the Circle, about children and elders and all those things. So that is kind of the backround of it what the elders told about the circle. How it helps us all help each other. The basis of the circle, the reason for a circle is to help each other.

And it actually goes back to maybe 100.000 years ago when human beings were first becoming human beings. First making circles they made circles to help each other. To hunt together. To gether food together. To build their homes and settlements together. Do everything together. Take care of the children together. Helping each other is part of our human nature. We want to be helpful. We need help. And we want to help.

But the society changed. Began changing maybe 8-10.000 years ago when civilization began to come out of the population was so big that this circles got lost. The cooperation and the compashion, the helpfulness, the love that was the guide of those old circles got lost. Because the way to survive when fear is the dominating instead of love is to be physically strong and make sure you take what you want.

And that developed a warrior-culture. It was warlords that began to organize the early societys and they became kingdomes and empires. And all of human history is been the same. Its a history of violence, a history of conflict. A history of human beings hurting other human beings for their own selfish needs. Meanwhile behind the scenes all of the native people were living peacefully in harmony with each other and cooperation. Until they were finally conquered by these violent dominating cultures.

The way of living changed for our people from cooperation to domination. And thats to mad. That created a seperation. That seperation which is the most important obstacle we have to our humaness. Keeping us from each other. Actually there are three kinds of seperation. They are all segnificant to us as human beings. First is, human beings are segnifcantly seperated from their roots in the environment, from the earth, from the natural world. From the birds and the plants, and animals, just the natural growths of things.

Its getting worse and worse. More than half the worlds population lives in cities now completely seperated from nature. And its healing effects, and its softening effects, its slowing effects. Going after a faster, mader more confusing, more tense more stressful live. And also a more isolated live. So the second seperation that we all are suffering from is seperation from each other. Communities had broken down. They are no longer close communities anymore. Families had braking down. The young people were leaving home, breaking up, going all over. They all…sound there the family helping …its not there anymore.”[…]

Interview mit Charles Eisenstein (2015)

Interbeing.Interbeing is a word that, I’ve been told was coined by Thich Nhat Than, the vietnamese monk. And it’s a little stronger than Interdependency or Interconnection, which might mean separate beings having connections or depending on each other, but Interbeing means it’s kind of like interexistence. It means, not only for me to survive do I need you and you and you or other beings, but in order to even exist.

My existence depends on the existence of others; I am not a separate self. Therefor what happens to you is happening to me, what’s happening to the planet is happening to me, what happens to the rainforest is happening to me, what happens to my enemy is happening to me. We are all part of the same being. And every person mirrors every other person and every other being on the planet.

I guess everybody has a story about who they are and how the world works. And usually this story is invisible to us because we are swimming in it, it emerges us. It’s part of our whole way of seeing. So. And everybody has their own individual story but also a culture has stories that are shared to some extend but almost everybody in the culture.

And we just take these as granted as reality itself. It seems like it’s not a story, it’ just real. So, in our culture – in my culture – something might be the idea that there is a reality out there, outside of ourselves. Where something either is or isn’t. So in order to be secure you have to find out what that is. You have to find out what the facts are and that can be very useful if you do something like science, but it’s not always as useful.

For example, let’s say you are in a relationship, and your mind is doubting: is she really loves me or not? There is a fact out there that I’ve got to make sure. So I’ve got to test it. And we find that the process of testing it might change the reality. So coming out with a situation with paranoia, with doubt or fear might create the conditions that justify the fear. Whereas when we approach somebody with the spirit of love or none-judgment or generosity, than I just know that deep down you are a beautiful person and that you want to connect, or that you want to be generous or you want to be kind.

That creates kind of an imitation for you to be that. And who exactly knows how imitation happens, that might be something energetic, maybe just some kind of subliminal signaling. But everybody is experiencing this. You know, somebody… especially with fear… Ok, so I say, when someone approaches you with fear, than you might act in a way that is scary. Especially when you are in a dangerous neighborhood or something. Or in a tense situation

And at some point, you know, if we play out that story, if we treat them like that, then eventually they have no choice but to be hostile. So the story creates, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. And ultimately, there is never a way to be absolutely sure that your story is true. Like, you can never … and that’s behind all of this, all of these this is happening bla bla…… politics … so in the end she sleeps with someone else anyway. In fact it’s because of all his measures.

And the same thing when we acting from fear, we are creating a world of fear. And actually the fear is written on our world view on a deep level. Because if we accept that the world outside of ourselves is full of these random forces of nature that that have no intelligence and no purpose, then our security comes to controlling these. We have to be afraid. And when we believe the nature of life is competition, that biology programs us to be ruffles competitors and take advantage of each other, that we live in a world of hostile opportunistic beings, then fear is natural. It’s like our natural state. And

biology and history in some extend take that for granted, that evolution that progress is response to fear. It’s an attempt to make ourselves more secure. To more easily survive and reproduce and spread over the earth and all species are trying to do that and we are finally the winners. Like that whole narrative is coming under question and it seems very abstract but it also has it’s emitted to a more political and personal dramas as well.

Don’t know… I’m not an expert. I think to be successful it has to have a mission beyond just we gonna get together and get community. It has to be a larger purpose. Because real community requires interdependency, it requires that you need each other. If you really need each other than you can’t just leave or kick somebody out likely. Because you need them. A traditional village was like them. You know you needed the blacksmith. You had to get along with the blacksmith somehow. You couldn’t do something to terrible to other people in the community otherwise you would suffer too.

So today, one of the difficulties in creating communities, at some level people know at least for their survival, they don’t need each other. You know I could leave the community if you live let’s say ZEGG community. I could just go to Berlin and get a job there. You don’t need these people. But if you are all committed to a common purpose than you do need each other. Maybe not for your survival, but you need each other like a band needs the bassplayer, a band needs the guitars. Without the guitarist you not gonna play music. So you need that person. In the same way, if community has a common purpose, than everybody is needed, or everybody’s gifts are needed.

And I can look at you and I say I need you. Because without you, this thing I really care about would not thrive, it would not be successful. So that, when you have that mutual need, then when conflicts come up, you gotta find a way to resolve them. You can’t just OH! I’m leaving. You know or get out. Because need that person so you have to resolve conflicts and that creates a culture of conflict resolution so that the community doesn’t just break appart when the first distress shows up.

To sum up what I just said: For a community to be successful I think you have to have more than just the impulse, the desire to have community, you have to have a common purpose. Because when we joined in a common purpose, then we need each other. Not for our survival necessary, but we need each other to fulfil this purpose that we all care about. When conflict arises, you can’t just wlk ot or kick the person out because you need them and they need you. So you got to figure out a way to resolve the conflict. And over time this culture of conflict resolution, this culture of neutral care and finding a way making it work for you. That becomes ingrained, becomes part of the culture and allows the community to survive.

I think a crisis is necessary and inevitable, more then one crisis. That is how big changes happen. It happened in my life. I know many, many people describing their process of transformation, and I think it’s true on a collective level too. It’s inevitable, like most believe is that infinite growth can happen on a finite planet. We are heading for crisis, because our system only works in the context of growth, but we are obviously reaching limits to growth. For some foremost ecological limits. So that means our economic system doesn’t work very well anymore and that is gonna create crisis. But it’s not just economic of course. All of our defining institutions are in a state of crisis or approaching crisis. And I mean just take the institution of

marriage for example. The story of how to live a life that included marriage was very strong to generations ago. Divorce was unheard of. You know, you dated people. You tried to find the one to spend the rest of your life with. Then you talk over to your parents and your friends, you know how recompetible, is this gonna be a happy marriage.

And if you decide so and the wiser, older people decide yes this is gonna be a happy marriage and give you your blessings, then you get married, you have children and grandchildren and you gonna stay together your whole life in a two person unit. And you know that was unquestionable. Today people still in general except that as a norm, as the right way to do it.

But if you look at the divorce rate it’s obvious that it’s not working. So, does that mean we degenerated? And we just don’t have the moral fiber to make it work anymore? Or does that mean that story is changing and maybe we need to explore some other kind of cultural agreement, cultural story of how to live a life. And I don’t know what that is.

Some of these communities like ZEGG, Tamera, all of the other communities are exploring what that might look like. I don’t think any of them have the answer, but I think the exploration is valuable. And who knows, maybe we eventually come back to some kind of contained sacred partnership. I don’t know. We are in the space between stories now![…]

Wer oder Was?

Wer oder Was?

Herzlich Willkommen
365 (1) -Wer oder Was ist Zauberfrau?

Was oder wer Zauberfrau ist…?

Meine ganz persönliche Zauberfrau-Reise begann spätestens im Jahr 2009. Nach der Geburt meiner Tochter stand ich erneut vor der Frage meiner zukünftigen Lebensplanung. Bis zur Geburt meines Kindes, war ich überzeugte „Projektarbeitern“. Ich schlich mich durch die Zeit und verbrachte meine Tage mit der Arbeit in und an gemeinnützigen Vereinen und deren Projekten. Gelegentlich hielt ich mich mit Zwischenjobs und Auftragsarbeiten über Wasser.

Erst im Jahr 2007 mit meiner Entscheidung, viel mehr dem Gefühl zu dieser Entscheidung, mein Kind ambulant zu entbinden, habe ich mir ein inneres Muster, eine Art persönlichen Wertemaßstab für „das richtige Gefühl“ angeeignet.

Mit der Geburt meiner Tochter wuchs mein einst winziges Maß an Selbstverantwortung um ein Vielfaches.

2009 war ich noch der festen Überzeugung, dass ein Studium der einzige Weg sei, all meine Ziele zu vereinen. Nach einem persönlichen Coaching, durch Dr. Petra Bock, wurde mir dieses „richtige Entscheidungsgefühl“ ein maßgebender Wegbereiter. Ich beschloss, fortan selbstständig zu arbeiten und mein erlangtes Wissen im Bereich „Projektfinanzierung & Fundraising“ weiterzugeben. Darüber hinaus, war es mein Ziel meine „wahre Berufung“ zu finden.

Meine Entscheidung und mein Wunsch war es, mich lebenslänglich mit den Dingen zu beschäftigen, die ich besonders gut kann, die mir besonders viel Freude bereiten und damit erfolgreich zu werden. Es stellte sich die Frage, was kann ich besonders gut?

Um ehrlich zu sein, ich war ratlos aber überzeugt. Wie konnte sich Ratlosigkeit und Unwissenheit so gut anfühlen? Gegen Unwissenheit hilft bekanntlich viel Lesen und Lernen. Das tat ich – Sammelbändeweise Erfolgs- und Lebenshilferatgeber.

Von Bodo Schäfer, beispielsweise, erhielt ich das Wissen, dass zu jedem Erfolg ein Lehrer gehört, der einem entscheidende Erfolgsgeheimnisse anvertraut und einen an seinen Erfahrungen teilhaben lässt. Folglich, wie sollte ich an einen Mentor gelangen?

Wer, sollte sich ausgerechnet für mich Zeit nehmen? Sicher, Coaches und Mentoren lassen sich gegen Barzahlung buchen aber so viel Hilfe wie ich benötigte, konnte ich finanziell niemals vorstrecken. An dieser Stelle begegnete mir Pierre Franck mit seinem Buch: „Wünsch es dir einfach“. Was tat ich also? Richtig, ich wünschte es mir einfach. Gesagt, getan. Was hatte ich zu verlieren? Ein Wunsch kostete schließlich kein Geld.

Ende des Jahres 2009 ging der Wunsch in Erfüllung und ich lernte meinen Mentor kennen. Gemeinsam erarbeiteten wir mein individuelles Thema das all meine Ansprüche in sich vereinen sollte. Dieser Prozess dauerte, bis zu den ersten sichtbaren Resultaten, 12 Monate. Zauberfrau.TV wurde zu meinem „Ausgangsarbeitsfeld“.

Ziemlich bald gelangte ich zu der Überzeugung, dass Wünschen tatsächlich funktioniert.

Folglich, könnte ich mir einfach meinen Traumberuf und Erfolg wünschen?

Jedoch wurde ich eines Besseren belehrt. Meine ersten offenen Bekenntnisse dieser Überzeugung sowie Veröffentlichung meiner gesammelten Erkenntnisse wurden zeitnah als „esoterischer Hokuspokus, Kreationismus und Schwachsinn“, abgestempelt.

Wie konnte es sein, dass etwas so Einfaches und scheinbar so Gutes auf so viel Antipathie stieß? Weshalb gibt es nur so wenige Menschen, die von dieser Möglichkeit des Wünschens wissen, geschweige denn, daran glauben?

Ich begann mir weiter Menschen und Dinge in mein Leben zu wünschen, von denen ich der Überzeugung war, sie würden mir auf meinem Weg weiterhelfen.

Female Holding

Neben den vielen schönen Aufnahmen und Interviews wurde ich mit meinem ersten “Holding” beschenkt. Wir waren vier Frauen die einander zu zweit, je abwechselnd, 15 Minuten in den Armen hielten, wobei die eine ihren Kopf auf dem Herzen der anderen ablegen durfte und dabei, ähnlich wie ein Säugling beim Stillen, gehalten wird.

Zugegeben, da ist etwas Mut erforderlich um sich einer fremden Frau in die Arme zu legen, sprich so nah bei einander zu sein. Gesetz dem Fall du hast dich, als Frau oder Mann “überwunden”, dich deinem Holdingpartner/in hinzugeben kannst du umgehend erfahren, was Story meint, wenn er sagt, wir sollten uns vorstellen, wie es sich anfühlt wieder völlig unschuldig zu sein, wie Kleinkinder.

Im Anschluss fuhren wir weiter nach Oberbrunn zum CircleWay Leadership Seminar. Hier trafen wir, zum letzten Mal für dieses Jahr, Manitonquat und Ellika Linden.

Während der letzten Wochen hatten sich die Wogen zwischen Martin und mir, mittels Reden und einander Zuhören, geglättet. Wir hatten beide versucht unseren Spaß von “woanders” her zu bekommen und entschieden uns nach unseren Abenteuern erneut für einander. Wir kamen beide zu der Erkenntnis, dass wir uns täglich „neu“ für einander entscheiden könnten.

Oberbrunn beschenkte uns mit der Möglichkeit als “Anschauungsobjekte” für Storys-Paarcounceling zu dienen, was wir gern annahmen. Darüber hinaus, war das Seminarhaus ein altes Schloss samt eigener Kapelle die, ohne Altar jedoch mit Orgel ausgestattet, über einen wunderbaren Resonanzraum verfügte.

Interview mit Zauberfrau Aruna (2014 & 2015)

„Ich erhoffe mir viel so auch mit den Kindern. Also ein Schwerpunkt von Storys Arbeit ist ja die Arbeit mit den Kindern. Also nicht die Arbeit, sondern das Spiel mit den Kindern. Und was ich mir wirklich erhoffe ist, das Zusammensein mit den Kindern. Das klingt jetzt total blöd aber wirklich, „besser zu lernen“.

Den meisten Kontakt, den ich mit den Kindern habe, ist wirklich erzieherischer Art. Und das macht mir überhaupt gar keinen Spaß. Ich erziehe extrem ungern.

Ich habe das mit dem Counseln am Anfang noch über das Telefon gemacht, aber das finde ich schwierig. Sagen halt viele das geht genau so gut, wobei das während ich das mache ist es ok, und dann ist es auch fast genau so gut aber die Hürde ist größer. Ich habe Freundinnen die es kennen und die soetwas ähnliches kennen und da habe ich es schon gelegentlich gemacht mit dem counseln.

Mit dem Claudius habe ich es relativ selten gemacht, aber was ich auch gemacht habe mit ihm ist Wertschätzungszeit. Also wo wir uns wirklich gegenseitig wertgeschätz haben. Wir stehen nicht so arg auf diese, darauf das immer zu timen und dann peeppeep. Das ist nicht so unser Ding. Aber sich wirklich paar Minuten zu nehmen und Wertschätzung auszusprechen. Das haben wir manchmal gemacht und ich finde das sehr angenehm.

Ich finde das Claudius sich total verändert hat was das betrifft. Also wir sind ja echt schon ne ganze Weile zusammen und ich finde das ist… also die Fähigkeit eigene Gefühle wahrzunehmen oder mit Gefühlen zu sein und dem Raum zu geben ist bei Claudius, hat sich total verändert und entwickelt. Nachdem ich da 12 Jahre dran rumgearbeitet habe, ging das durch das Zeug und die Unterstützung ganz schön schnell finde ich.

Ich finde, drei Dinge um die Welt zu verändern ist, sich selbst zuhören und wertschätzen, wahrnehmen, anderen zuhören, die wahrnehmen, die wertschätzen, und was ich total wichtig finde ist glaub ich was mir hier auch noch zu wenig ist, ist diese Rückbindung an die Erde.

Um die Welt zu verändern. Ej, so viele Menschen sind nie im Wald, keinen keine Bäume, da fliegen nur Vögel, hören die nicht, sehen die nicht… da ist kein Wunder das man der Erde keinen Respekt erweist wenn man sie nicht mitkriegt. Und das dritte ist das heraustragen. Also wirklich, das sich die Leute wieder daran erinnern. Also, das Zuzuhören, den anderen und sich selbst und die Erde wieder mitzukriegen, dass dieses “völlig unspektakuläre Wissen” wieder aktiviert wird.

Herzlich Willkommen
[M]eine Kreisgeschichte (34)

[M]eine Kreisgeschichte (34)

In diesem Augenblick wechselte irgendetwas in mir. Das Ende dieser Beziehung, dieses Teams und dieser Reise wäre nicht automatisch mein Lebensende. Es war lediglich eine weitere Station. Mir war als hätte ich in dem damaligen Traum noch ein Stück weiter geträumt, was mir jetzt das Gefühl von “Alles-ist-gut” eröffnete.

Gestärkt durch die neuerliche Gefühlsänderung betrat ich das Pub. In weiser Voraussicht in der kommenden Nacht nicht allzu viel Schlaf abzubekommen entschied ich, wider mein Bedürfnis den Liebeskummer zu ertränken, nur eine Whiskey und nur eine Ale-Sorte zu probieren.

[Was dann auch völlig ausgereicht hatte.]

Ein wenig beschwipst bestieg ich, von Martin und Heiko verabschiedet, morgens um 04.30 Uhr, irgendwo in der Provinz Irlands einen Bus, der mich nach Dublin zum Flugzeug Richtung Heimat bringen würde.

Mit Betreten des Busses hatte ich beschlossen, das Drama der Reise und das Ende der Beziehung in Irland zu lassen. Während der beinahe dreistündige Busfahrt kauerte ich auf meinem Sitz. Im Halbschlaf hörte Marshall Rosenbergs Einführung in die Gewaltfreie-Kommunikation.

Mit dem Abheben des Fliegers bekräftigte ich mein Vorhaben “den alten Scheiß” auf der Insel zurück zu lassen und schlief ein.

Martin künftig völlig aus dem Weg zu gehen wäre nicht möglich gewesen, da wir eine gemeinsame Wohnung teilen.

Nach seiner Ankunft zog er deshalb erst einmal für einige Zeit in den Laden.

Nur noch 120 Stunden

Unsere erste Dreh-Tour endete „offiziell“ mit der Heimkehr von Heiko und Martin in der ersten Septemberwoche 2015. Der zweite Teil war, nach einer zwei-wöchigen Pause, in Berlin angesetzt.

Paul, Heiko, Martin und ich waren angereist, um Gabriele Seils, ihrerseits Trainerin für Gewaltfreie-Kommunikation nach Marshall B. Rosenberg, zu interviewen.

Frau Seils ist erfahrene Journalistin und Autorin. Sie interviewte einst Marshall B. Rosenberg bei einem Deutschlandaufenthalt persönlich. Seither war sie zur überzeugten Vertreterin dieser Methode geworden.

In der darauffolgenden Woche fuhren die Jungs Richtung Göttingen. Professor Gerald Hüther hatte unserer Bitte um ein Interview stattgegeben. Erst am Wochenende trafen wir uns in der Lebensgemeinschaft “Tempelhof” wieder.

Erleichtert, über die erfolgreiche team-interne Kommunikation konnten die Dreharbeiten fortgesetzt werden. Es war nicht, dass wir bis dahin über irgendetwas der ersten Tour gesprochen hätten. Was vorgefallen war, lag im Nebel der Verschwiegenheit.

Da der wärmende Sommer endgültig dem Herbst gewichen war, toppte das Spa im Tempelhof alle bisherigen Gemeinschafts- und Camp-Sanitäreinrichtungen. Dieses Spa verfügt über eine riesige Sauna, einen riesigen Meditationsraum und eine normal große Infrarotkabine, die wir ausgiebig nutzen durften.

Die Aufnahmen im Tempelhof waren für uns, im Verhältnis zur Sommertour, entspannt. Unser Team reduzierte sich alsbald wieder auf drei Personen, da Paul zwecks Studium, Freundin und Job dringend nach Hause zurückkehren musste.
