Participation is free of charge.
This training runs from 25 January till 1 February 2019.
At the end of each training week, Melanie Maar invites to a group dialogue with the aim to make space for expanding the experience of the classes. A space for people to voice and learn from individual experiences, and from questions coming up in the course of this shared practice.
This gathering is open to anyone who has taken at least one of the training classes of Being and Seeing. In that way, people present have a common experience base for dialogue.
