Belonging to the City, Belonging to the Land

sensory walks and foraging for place-based visioning

Piloted as part of the THF Transformationsbündnis' Halle* für Alle Zukunftswerkstatt #1, this is an expedition consisting of sensory experiments and urban foraging. We explore the park and surrounding urban streets, investigating the landscape both as a garden and as a multi-layered sensory being in order to play with expanding our sense of belonging to the rhythms and relationships of this specific place. By creating maps of our direct experiences along the way, we weave our findings into new collective tools for future visioning rooted in deep, relational connection to place.

Spreewald Kayaking

The Spreewald is a UNESCO biosphere reserve just an hour south of Berlin. Made up of 1,300km of canals and waterways, it's home to beavers, otters, snipe, fire-bellied toads, and around 6,000 other wetland plants and animals. An incredibly beautiful and special place to explore by kayak.

Mapping Constellations of Self

Parts work is an extraordinary methodology for getting to know ourselves deeply and resolve inner conflict. By taking our time to name, map, and reflect on our varied and unique parts, we compassionately untangle the many threads of ourselves and gain clarity, balance, and confidence to last us through the winter.

Nature Games in Grunewald

Nature Games is all about letting your inner kid – or cub – out to play! With games like Wolf Stalks Deer, Meet a Tree, Plant Concentration and Animal Charades we wake up our senses, tune into the more-than-human world, and get silly.

Honey in the River

It's possible to find sweetness and nourishment even in the middle of discombobulating transition. This is a playful, soulful workshop for bringing curiosity, humor, and new perspective to life transitions, co-facilitated with my father, Josh Senyak. Read more

Briesetal Nature Connection

As we hike through a fairytale landscape of sunken alder trees, beaver dams and flowing water, we slow down, quiet our minds, and open our senses. Along the way, we invite presence and reciprocity through forest meditations, gentle games, and stretches of silent walking.

This workshop woke up some very interesting and deep feelings I hadn't really explored. It was a great jumping-off point to do some great introspection into my fears and beliefs about an upcoming change! It also helped me see the sweetness and goodness in my life. There truly is 'honey in the river'.
