Macrobiotic philosophy & practice has been around for a while now, but not many people had tuned into this sophisticated practice so far. Why? The answer is simple. They either haven’t met an authentic teacher who would introduce them to the subject and keep their attention in the times of crises, or they lack energy for understanding this philosophy in the first place. To elevate personal evolution, one would have to have sufficient energy levels to be able to transform consciously. Since energy is everything, we need to understand how it functions and how to use it for our own good. And for the good of the others as well, naturally. There are some basic prerequisites for the one who wants to progress on the path of soul evolution. Body, being the temple of the soul, has to properly eat, breathe and move. Macrobiotics is exactly about that. Eating consciously prepared food according to the transformative cycle of 5 elements is vital for the basic constitution of our body and spirit. From there on, possibilities are endless. Holistic practice (meaning it addresses equally body with all its function, emotion phenomenology as well as spiritual spheres) of macrobiotics is a rare gem in today’s fast consumerism of spirituality and new-age existentialism. It shakes off all your beliefs with utter easiness because it’s knowledge is based on the pure spirit of Tao. These natural laws, once understood and digested, become high-vibrational fuel for rapid evolution. This is also the reason why subconsciously people don’t want to deal with direct ways of transformation and conscious expansion. They are scared of Life because they have a delusional idea about life. They think that life & love hurt you, yet all they pray & wish for is life & love. That’s called madness. There is nothing to be scared of, except our own stupidity. Life is an extraordinary process of complete beauty for you to experience it with an open mind & heart, understanding the principles that govern us, as above, so below.
Peace begins in the kitchens and pantries, gardens and backyards, where our food is grown and prepared. The energies of nature and the infinite universe are absorbed through the foods we eat and are transmuted into our thoughts and actions.
Fire is the element most precious to the expression of who we are, individually and collectively. When you cook, you regularly expose yourself to the fire element, interacting with it, getting to know it’s ways. Those who understand fire, understand life. I will say no more about this, otherwise, we would soon have a book here. I’m not hoping for you to get it, I know you will. In your own time. Some of us just don’t have this luxury anymore – if I can call it like this, the time, so we are left with only Now. But what a profoundly & eternally sacred Now! Wow :).
And what is the most challenging to bring close to Fire?… The Water, right? Bring it to close to the fire – it will evaporate and maybe burn you, keep it too far – it will get cold and useless, heavy. Well, this relationship of fire and water reflects throughout whole our life. You can find it in the food you eat, partnerships you experience, in nature and it’s transformation just before your eyes, quality and vibrational frequency of your thought which manifest your reality (in 2018. we hopefully all know that, finally), in the colours of your shoes, scent of your skin, quality of your blood, presence that you emanate on all levels of your being, everywhere! So, if it’s everywhere and in everything, does it interest you to know more about this?
We are always seeking our opposite, whether we know it or not. When we discover what that is we can dissolve our arrogance.
I was burning inside out to find the answers. In my early 20ies, after 10 years of judo martial arts, and 7 years after taking my first yoga class, I, fortunately, found the master who would teach me these “secrets”. They are secrets only to the speculative mind, of course, be sure of this. Otherwise, these pieces of information are just tools in the wise mans’ hands. Use them properly, and … well, here is where you step in. You write your story the way you want, ok? Let’s just say I somehow know it will be the greatest story you could ever dream of. And maybe for the first time ever, it will be Real.

I welcome you to this introductory seminar to Macrobiotics. It is the prerequisite to continue your study of the subject throughout one year of 5 weekends (two-day) seminars on each element, specifically, where we dive deep into the alchemical practice of cooking. Not just the food. You are physically, psychologically and spiritually cooking a multidimensional soup – that we call Life. Make sure the ingredients you put in and the state of awareness in which you do it is right. The taste – ah, no question about it! It’s the pure poetry only you, the creator will really understand. But nevertheless – with sparkles and ultimate joy in your eyes, you will read it to the whole universe. To Yourself.
All the best,
Venue: Yoga am Park Treptower, Berlin

This 2 part workshop is dedicated to self-love. The theme will naturally unfold as we explore our inner world of sensations, energy, and the impact that conscious movement has on our state of mind. To say that energy work has effects on our physiology and psychology is an understatement. The union of fire and water element has a tremendous implication on our perception of life. To be stabilized in the present moment is no longer a wish, it is a real possibility for us if we want to stand authentically and responsibly in our power.
This alchemical transformation is reachable through the conscious effort of letting go of the limiting beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. When we move energy in a conscious manner through our body, assisting the flow of vitality with our movement and breathing, sensating the peace that is present in the essence of the moment, our mind naturally wonders away and is no longer pushing us with its wicked agenda we are used to, usually. The state of the subtle and abstract cognition of the moment is unbearable to the mind. If we stay present in this short and sensitive period, we enter into the profoundly new reality of our being. A reality that we can anchor in and use as a new reference for our upcoming experiences of exploration, both inwardly and outwardly. Magic is there, and it’s waiting for you. Do not wait for it, that’s the old way – you got to move beyond imaginable to reach your inner power. We collectively change the paradigm of this world, each one of use using one’s own potential to breakthrough. Self-love is both a state of being and a tool for transformation. Why transforming? Because it’s a natural law of life – either you change voluntarily, or you will be changed involuntarily, that’s how things are. You choose. Sometimes the opportunity for choices seems to be hidden. And it is, (not) really. It’s your mind’s game to keep you confused and unsatisfied in your endeavors to succeed. We will play a different game. The one where you can hide from the mind and watch it closely, so we can move through the world of joy unnoticed & untouched. Later on in your practice, when you feel fully safe and self-aware, you can do it in the way to be noticed and visible, but this would be your conscious move based on the postulate of free-choice. That’s where we are heading. All of us.
In this workshop, we will provide much-needed support to the integration of our conscious move, as well as of the authentic expression of oneself. And all will be done through energy work of the group.
FIRE * part 1 will take place from 10:00 to 13:00, and will be based on yoga vinyasa sequence, along with mudra and pranayama practice, ending with meditation in which we will focus all the energy we moved with the session done prior to it, thus entering the fire of our consciousness.
WATER * part 2 will take place from 14:30 to 17:30, and will be based on holistic exercises which tend to deepen our perception of the more subtle layers of our being, both physically and metaphysically, touching the still surface of the water and diving in it, eventually ending in integration of both elements through guided meditation and deep rest.
The workshop will, apart from physical movement and breathing, have a bit more focus on the integration of our consciousness so we can be rooted in the Present as a way to a healthy and fulfilling life that we consciously create.
