” Moving into the unknown”

with Sandra Pawlig and Froukje Anjema

“I said to the angel:
Give me a light, so that I may dance safely
I can dance towards uncertainty.
But he answered:
Dance in the darkness
and put your right hand
into the hand of God
and take your left hand
the hand of your neighbour
and trust your intuition.”
(freely adapted from a traditional Chinese saying)

inspire and complement.

Open workshop of our professional association – “Finding peace in silence” 2 – 4 September 2022

We would like to invite you to our open Workshop of the Fachverband.

Theme will be: “Find Peace within Silence”

It will be held by Friedel Kloke-Eobl and Saskia

September 2nd to 4th 2022 in Vallendar

Especially in these times of war in the Ukraine we keep asking each other: “How is ist possible that there is now another war in Europe? How can we deal with wars in the world outside and within ourselves?

Friedel writes: “As long as man lives on this earth, peace will be threatened always.. (…) It is essential, to fight in groups for peace and justice and to strive for a trustworthy, peaceful and creative cooperation within our dancing circles. (…) We shouldn`t forget: Within our hearts we`re all one.

Hoping that reflecting peace will be shining not only into our inner selves but also far beyond to the outside, we are looking forward very much to your participation in the workshop.

Dear member of the Fachverband,
During the many challenges of the last two years, we have often remembered the words of Erich Fried:

Due to the uncertainties caused by the nationally and regionally always changing Corona – regulations, the board team has decided to hold the annual member’s meeting digitally again this year. It is important to us that everyone can participate. We therefore cordially invite you to the

Annual General Meeting on Friday, 18 March 2022 at 7 pm by Zoom.

As every year, the theme of the last Balance booklet was chosen for the open dance workshop following the annual meeting: ” walking the path of the heart “. But like last year, it cannot be realised as planned now. Instead, the two docents

We are very glad about this and thank both of them for their creative engagement. Participation fee 10 – 25 € (self-assessment), registration for both Zoom meetings to:

„The path of the heart“

…and if I did not have love, I would be nothing….

1. Korinther 13,1

withJeaneth de Witte-Smit & Markus Sellner

Place: Haus Mariengrund, Münster

“Love is an indestructible force, the strongest in the universe.

We dance the way to grow into this powerful love.

Traditionally, they say of love:

The more you give, the more you receive.

If one allows oneself this experience, the following questions arise:

How can I make this love my own?

How can I ensure that it becomes an indestructible force within me?

And how can I become so loving that giving love does not exhaust me, but makes me stronger, and milder?” Hans Stolp

“Timeless Joy”

“Timeless Joy”

The FV Meditation des Tanzes celebrated its 25th anniversary in connection with Friedel’s 80th birthday in Bad Herrenalb with a wonderfully successful festival weekend.

In the seminar house specially booked for this occasion, over 90 participants met (mostly members of the FV), some of whom have been associated with the meditation of dance since the beginning, but also those who have only been inspired by it for a few years.

Under the motto “Timeless Joy”, teachers created individual dance units. Invited “special guests” who have accompanied Friedel’s path for many years, offered folklore or opportunities to sing.

Together with other artists and actors, they enriched the well-prepared celebration evening on Saturday with nostalgic, dancing and creative contributions to honor Friedel’s life’s work, to thank her and to celebrate the community that grew out of it.

Alfred Bast started the birthday party with an impressive performance. He shared deep thoughts about Friedel’s worldview and her work, about parallels and differences between her dance art and his artistic work with rhetorical and playful ease – a grandiose homage to Friedel and a pleasure for everyone.

You can read their impressions of this festival on their website: Mir zur Feier

Both dancing together and meeting people who had not seen each other for a long time and yet felt connected to one another through the meditation of the dance made many participants happy.

The festival weekend was ended with a Sunday attunement to live music.

The end of the circle with “One world – one mind – one love – we will find, on common ground, peace will be found, for all an earth” (Joanne Shenandoah) once again confirmed the vision that we all have in our hearts And that we all long for.
