On the fundament of academic discourses same as eastern traditions and artistic practices we cultivate awareness and bring more understanding into femininity in all it´s different aspects. The Fullmoon Seminars offer a wide program- both theoretical and practical. For these retreats we have very special guests invited. In the September Retreat Caroline Mackintosh, South African artist photographer and filmmaker is hosting the Meditative Painting Workshop. For the October Retreat, Performer, Vocalist and extraordinary Cellist Ashia Bisonrouge is playing a Cello Soul Concert for us.
*the September Retreat is fully booked, please join the waiting list or get one of the last spots for October
FAQ: Yes, you can participate without former participation in one of the former seminars and yes, you can also participate in both seminars. Many women who are joining never went to Women´s Circle before. Each seminar is very different and these ones especially since we have, as written above, different artists collaborating and bringing their workshops/art.

THE FULLMOON SEMINARS
Each of the retreats happens twice, so you can decide which date you participate. After the three parts there will be a full week program (announced in summer) to go deeper into the topic. The circles will be held in German and English (if needed).
This is part two of a three part series to dive into the forgotten wisdom of the feminine. It is open to all women.
Each seminar is very different, since it is also a co-creation depending on what each women brings into it.
For this gathering we meet in the beautiful historic Dutch Quarter in Potsdams city center (30-40 min. from Berlin). The enchanting royal parks and lakes around our location invite for walk and contemplation. You are more than welcome to come alone, with your girlfriend, sister or mother.
It feels like a time travel to enter this beautiful and well preserved historic monument. Stepping out of the House where our seminar takes place you can turn to the left and in 10 min walks you stand in front of one of the most precious of Prussian cultural heritage: The Castle of Sans Souci. Or you turn to the right and again after 10 min walks from our location you find yourself in the middle of an other palace garden: Neuer Garten with the Marmor Palais, and world cultural heritage: Cecilienhof.
Fundament for this is Alisa’s academic research same as practical education and artistic approach.
Again we will go on a cultural journey into different moon philosophies and practices. The practical parts of these retreats are connected to the topics colour and sound, since it is summer and we want to go into a sensual and expressive state of experience.

Caroline Mackintosh is a South African born Artist living in Berlin. After finishing her studies she started expanding her horizons in various energetic healing modalities such as Voice healing and Sound Meditation and completed her Reiki teachings. Inspired by the natural world, she loves to work between the realms of imagery and Sound, her main mediums being photography, film visuals and music. She focusses on the discovering our connectivity through nature, capturing the essence of being and experiencing. Her dreamscape aesthetic shows the spontaneous need for the raw, wild and free in this world.
Ashia Bison Rouge has improvised to thunderstorms and performed on a windy night in a theater in the middle of the Death Valley desert. Her intriguing voice and captivating cello playing carefully takes the audience into the deep dark woods of a sci-fi fairytale. With her command of looping pedals and effects she creates distant journeys of electronic, pulsating, multi-layered orchestral pieces and then deconstructs them down into ambient, classical, and familiar nostalgic songs.
Next to her solo project she has performed for and/or with Cirque du Soleil, Holzmarkt Berlin, Chamaleon Theater, Portland Cello Project, Vagabond Opera and the Wintergarten Variete in Berlin. In the Spring of 2015, Ashia Bison Rouge had the honor to perform her solo songs with the Salem Chamber Orchestra in Salem, Oregon.

“Always a pleasure joining events of Soneiro Collective! After two times of Alisa’s Women’s Circles i can say it’s been a great opportunity to learn, grow, release and meet other beautiful women. Definitely an empowering and enlightening experience which reminds you of your inner strength. Highly recommended.”
