Fulfil your heart’s desire and find your unique path

Do you want to live in a world that is alive, full of inspiration, trust, feeling and togetherness? Where our soul is able to breathe and perceive with all its senses is where we truly touch life. For this, we need open and courageous people who put their love into action and stand up for their truth.

Get involved in meaningful projects

We invite you into this training, if you feel inspired to make meaningful, cultural projects happen. We are globally connected and follow our mission to encourage people to trust their unique creative abilities. New project opportunities and collaborations are absolutely possible and open. We value sharing our knowledge and realising opportunities together. We believe that everyone can express their unique creativity. And that as a team, we can make a difference and drive change.

Training Content

We invite to our program authentic and very experienced people from our Forgotten Land network whom we will get to know in an online event and meet in person in the further course of the training and engage in direct exchange on important topics. The topics introduced by the guest speakers will be covered in more depth during the course of the training.

Artistic approach

The artist’s way, follow your heart’s desire.

You get introduced to a tool in discovering and reclaiming one’s creative self. Our guest speaker Laura Sofia, Psychotherapist and Coach from Barcelona Spain, will bring in four online sessions the wisdom of The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameroon in a condensed form.

Project Creation Process

Lively, professional, creative project development

Volker Eschmann works with you according to the creative project method. We will work as artists who locate their artistic work in the social context. We successfully develop and realize concepts, strategies and ways of working in the context of different life worlds. We learn to understand non-artistic issues, problems and prejudices in relation to competence systems, to react to them professionally and to justify the relevance of our own work.

Authentic Leadership

Embodied Presence, Empathic Resonance, Deep Listening

Sophie de Lacaze, an introduction into the 6 Principles of the Authentic Leadership Model. She is a Core Energetics  Trainer from Berlin Germany. To step into our authentic leadership, means to embrace our unique qualities and our vulnerabilities. It’s about coming forward with our truth and to connect with others beyond separation, power struggles and abuse.
