for PDF in English

A weeklong meeting, teaching, exchanging, and sharing in Bratislava, coming out of the international project MAKING CONNECTIONS born in 2019 – starting with a workshop on the weekend November 11/12 THE ALCHEMY OF ACCEPTANCE – Body-Mind Centering® and Trauma. The project is especially addressed to families with a member with diverse abilities, parents, as well as educators, and therapists, with the idea that real change can only happen in the entire constellation of relationships around the person. And that only through cooperation can these changes integrate to support the person and his or her environment.

MAKING CONNECTIONS is therefore aimed not only at children/and adults with disabilities or psycho-physical frailty, but at all those who are involved in this experience, both as family members and as professionals, offering a space for mutual recognition of skills and opportunities to exchange and encounter between them.

Learning through Experience

Workshops for Parents and Professionals


Learning means making new connections between mental, emotional and physiological processes. The brain develops on the base of experience. The plasticity of the nervous system allows us to learn throughout life and make connections within ourselves and with others and the environment: within the realm of the self, gravity and space. This also includes the context, the family, society, schools and institutions, as well as the group of educators and therapists caring for a person/ child with a disability. These connections create the foundation of all learning processes. The workshops are specifically tailored to share our approach with parents and professionals.

A big part of a workshop is experiential, that means that the participants experience in their own bodies movement and touch as the foundation of learning. We also discuss key concepts and share short videos, which demonstrate the direct link between one’s own experience and the application in individual session.
