A MANDORLA… SPACE TO BE

… INSPIRED IN MOVEMENT

A Mandorla is a space to be, to be in phase with the true power of yourself. Tuning to this power requests grounding, gentle yield to complete tranquility, absolute contemplation for what is ready to manifests. A space to be receptive to our creative potential and to let patiently the life within unfold.

A Mandorla offers a vastness of authentic nature gifted and given to welcome harmony. The many wild plants, The countless flowers, and especially the mighty cork oaks show what it means to be: to be with the music of the wind, the rhythm of the water, the songs of the birds, with the light of the moon and the warmth of the sun, with the consistency of slow growth, and the balanced tempo of the seasons.

A Mandorla is an aureole in the shape of an almond with origins in early Christian iconography. The mandorla is created by two circle segments that form an almond-shaped figure and symbolizes the coming together of two worlds.

We conceived A Mandorla as a place to step back for a while. To re-root into what really matters, to get rid of superficial layers and come back to your center.

We invite you for de-sumption, it means stepping out of this whole world which is based on and organized around consumption.

We are very happy to receive you as a guest in this humble but generous environment that will support you in your stay with us.

For us, to receive (Praapti in Sanskrit) is an expression of gratitude towards the inherent abundance and goodness of life. But for that abundance to manifest, it is essential that all relates harmoniously and that this relation is founded on a sentient balance.

To establish this fundamental quality of a clear and healthy relational field, it is necessary to us to lay down our comprehension of receptivity, and how we understand the dynamics between giving and receiving.

To give/receive means to be aware of and to recognize the cycle of energy it generates: meaning it is an act including our entire being, with our soul, with our heart.

Yoga addresses this notion beautifully in the virtue of Asteya (the 3d of the 5 Yamas). Asteya addresses our capacity in being fair, towards any aspect of life. Cultivating Asteya means to accept what is given by life with respect and gratitude and in return, to contribute proportionally and fairly towards what has been received. No more; no less.

It is in this circular giving/receiving relation that we intend to welcome you.

It is essential to us that our alliance rests on our mutual capacity of being attentive and sensitive towards what feels respectful and fair.

By this attitude, may we cultivate, generate and radiate abundance and trust.


… Uniqueness

We feel drawn to convey via intimate, and particular encounters, focusing on specific and personal inquiries,

to enhance your uniqueness, and help you reveal your singular creative path.

With that intention, we chose to offer a frame for individual, semi-individual sessions or small groups, 

enabling more autonomy and authenticity towards time/space/process

Concretely: you solicit our accompaniment for the modality you feel inspired by

Bodywork, Myofascia Breathing, Motional, Authentic Movement, Meditation, Chi Kung, Samãna Yoga &/or Therapeutic Yoga .

and together we set a time/frequency frame.

From love, with love
