Playfighting is friendly playful wrestling. Our experience of playfighting is a deep sense of reconnection with primal instincts - and a sense of liberation, wild freedom and self-respect.

Intuitive Singing Circle "the Sabda Experience"

Explore omnipresence with the sound of your soul through the vibration of voice and resonance, of the self and of the collective energy.

Tikal feels into the space and heart to hear the currents of existing songs, and in the Sabda Experience, invites us to offer creative sonic gifts through the medium of our vocal chords and our soul, to make an offering with one's body, in elation to Source, to Creation -residing in each of us, and to celebrate the raw beauty in WHAT IS, this by purely experiencing moment to moment.

Earth heart Qi Gong

Eartheart Qigong is a blending of two traditional forms of Qigong: Baduanjin and Shibashi, with my own contemporary form called the Eartheart sequence.These exercises have been used for centuries in China to improve the circulation of Qi and Blood, improve breathing, lift the spirits and strengthen the healing capabilities of body/mind/spirit.Qigong is also used as a moving form of meditation.The session will go for 35 minutes.
