Meditation & Music ๑ The Power of Vibration

Meditation & Music The Power of Vibration

Meditation & Music with Frank Klank & Cristina Guerra is described as an exceptional live music experience combined with a chakra meditation that connects guests with a deeper and more heart-centered world through the power of vibration. Experience the soothing sounds of the singing bowls and a meditative journey to restore your overall balance.

Meditation by Cristina Guerra
In this guided meditation, we are striving for an inner-Chakra discovery to bring them all to the correct vibration. The chakras are the junction points of energy distributed along our spine. If they are balanced, the physical, emotional and spiritual connections related to each one of them are in harmony. The chakras are influenced by each other. We can’t simply work them individually because they are all connected. With a combination of Laya and White Tantric meditation we will explore a colourful journey to restore the overall rebalance.

Music by Frank Klank
"Somewhere at the end of the late 90’s the sound of singing bowls started to trigger me. The sound of the bowls caught me, and out of curiosity I bought singing bowls. The woman in the shop told me: ‘take all the time you need for choosing a singing bowl. The bowls will choose you’. I truly experienced this, and took the time I needed. What a range of sounds I heard from 1 bowl. Some sounds touched me, other didn’t-- but it was interesting, and challenging. Hours later, I went home with 4 singing bowls.

Now, about 16 years later, after having a multiply of 4 singing bowls and after discovering loads of new sounds and feelings that happened in my body playing the bowls, I am still wondered about the influences the bowls can have.

I invite you to be curious about what sound can do and to feel what moves inside you if you listen to the sound of the singing bowls. Singing bowls make their own music, music makes vibrations and vibration means moving water. What happens with you and in your body, when knowing our body exists about 60% of water. If water moves a lot can happen, also in a human body.

The Hip Openers ๑ Hatha Yoga

The Hip Openers
Your hips are the connection point of both the spine and the legs. The ‘hip girdle’ and the 17-25 muscles that it encompasses are the central station of the body. We could refers to the hips as ‘the mother of all movement. When they’re open, you’ll be much more mobile above and below them’. So working on hip mobility improves your relationship with the rest of your body and its overall wellbeing. In yoga we are able to move our ball-and-socket hip joint through its full range of motion, and move in ways that break our usual patterns, whether those patterns are ones of underuse from a sedentary lifestyle, or overuse of particular muscles and neglect of others from a very active lifestyle.

Once a month we'll take a journey through the hip openers of a variety of yoga disciplines.

Hatha Yoga
Hip openers can be one of the most dreaded parts of a Yoga class but provide the greatest relief of tension. And opening or loosening tight hips can bring not just physical release but also an emotional one. At the Hatha Hip Openers Cristina Guerra focusses on the pelvis, a sensitive body area where we accumulate a lot of unconscious repressed emotional and mental stresses and it is essential to have an energetic balance. We use the breath to release the points of tension wherever they may be. So, come and join us for an energetic, balanced class to loosen tight hips and restore harmony while releasing those tensions which are holding you from your next step forward.

Tree Wisdom in The City ๑ A Walk in The Park

Jeroen Heindijk worked with a tree shaman, Dusty Miller the 13th for 18 years taking many trips through ancient forests. He learned about the unity in nature, the connection between trees and how they communicate.

The unique story about Dusty Miller, are the dryades, the tree spirits who have an enormous wisdom for those who are open to it. Many people have lost their natural connection with nature, Jeroen Heindijk wants to restore that ancient connection by reconnecting people through the wisdom of trees.

Jeroen will take you outside, while you go inside. We will walk to the Vondelpark, where you will get to know various trees and find your natural access point to restore that connection. The question is, what is this connection? How do you connect? Does the quality or the age of the tree play a role? What tree works best for you? Can you work with different trees? Is there work to do in this city to let nature find and share her authentic power?

Questions we will try to answer during this walk in the park.
Keywords: Meditation, grounding, connecting, recognizing and becoming aware.

Date: Sunday the 24th of September

Sacred Cacao Ceremony

cacaoceremony.png

In this time of Fall we invite you to celebrate and share gratitude, for all that blossomed for us in summer!

The spirit of the cacao will take us on a journey through different roams inside. Recall the light by embracing our shadows.

THE CEREMONY
The Fall has arrived, the days become shorter and nature is preparing itself for winter. A beautiful time to reflect on what we have harvested and to dwell upon the wealth of our existence. Shed your light and fill your heart with gratitude, as well as for those who are going through a hard time.

You can mark the beauty of the seasons by celebrating them, by honouring them and by looking at the cycle of nature. How it fits your own rhythm and how you can connect to that.

With love, regret, forgiveness and gratitude, you reprogram your unconscious state of mind and allow yourself to heal. It’s a heart opening journey and in combination with the cacao a blessing for our souls.

The space is supported with meditation, heartsongs, movement and sharing.

THE CACAO
Sacred Cacao is a soft but gentle medicine used to open the heart. The active ingredients of the cacao work strongly on the heart chakra and brings us back to our natural state of feeling. We sink with our head into our heart and connect ourselves intuitively with Mother Earth.

Our pure, raw cacao comes from Guatemala. The Criollo bean cacao is sourced with the highest active compounds to produce the most mind altering experience possible. It is blessed by cacao shaman Keith and intended to work with in ceremony to support in transmuting energy. This cacao does not force you anywhere, but it will act as a partner healing medicine, supporting you in whatever you wish to open, heal or experience. The cacao elixer is completely safe to drink and has no hallucinating effect.

GOOD TO KNOW
๑ Wear something comfortable (no shoes)
๑ Don't eat too much before the ceremony so there's room for the cacao to do it's work
๑ If you are on antidepressants please let us know immediately since cacao and certain antidepressants do not mix and can have harmful side effects
๑ Drink enough water during ceremony. Cacao is a diuretic and without proper hydration headaches can occur.

With love,

Charon Tolhuisen, Shamim Meijs, Elizabeth Plokker and Dana van Breukelen

Deep Restorative Sessions ๑ Losing Tension

Deep Restorative Sessions ๑ Losing Tension

RESTORATIVE YOGA
Restorative yoga traditionally targets the nervous system, up-regulating the parasympathetic (rest and digest) response and down-regulating neuromuscular activity to create and maintain a state of equilibrium and optimal health in the body. Through the art of masterful prop arrangement (otherwise known as ‘Bolster Ballet’) you can maximize these intentions, addressing individual circumstances including posture, limited flexibility, hypermobility, injuries, and other musculoskeletal concerns.

DEEP RESTORATIVE SESSIONS
Join Rachel Johnston for this 4-part in-depth, practical approach to restorative yoga that incorporates biomechanics, neural responses and somatics. You will learn to read the story your body tells, assess specific needs based on tissue quality, play with the art of breathing to help calm your nervous system, learn simple meditation techniques and cultivate your intuition. 

This course includes extensive demonstrations, plenty of hands-on practice, discussion, and collaboration.

This is perfect opportunity if you are ready to deepen your yoga practice, if you need some support around anxiety and stress in your life, or if you simply like to take your rest seriously!

LETTING GO OF TENSION
Tension = unnecessary effort put into an action.
Learning how to relax and release tension in the body is a higher order skill then learning how to put necessary action into a muscle. Both are important, ofcourse, but when it comes to learning how to undo long held postural patterns it helps to understand when you are putting in unnecessary effort.

The Breath of Life ๑ Connection

breathoflife29sep.jpg

The Breath of Life ๑ Connection

BREATHWORK
From the start till the end you breathe your whole life. It’s is a subconscious process which you can influence consciously. When you influence the breath, you instantly influence your state of being and vice versa. Breathe to relax, breathe to energise, breathe for change, there are many ways to do it.

Although we take around 80% of our energy from oxygen, we don’t learn much about breathing. Besides the physical process there is the movement of the breath, or flow, that can make tensions and stress in the body‘melt’ or release.

So the way you breathe tells a lot about the way you live your life. Come and join our conscious breathing journeys: The Breath of Life.

THEME: CONNECTION
Do you feel connected? What does connection mean to you?
Connection with yourself, your body, your partner, your friends, the people on the planet? Come on this journey of 'conscious connected breathing' and experience what connection feels like.

Basic Pranic Healing ๑ Level One

PRANA
Prana is a sanskrit word meaning “life-force” – the vital energy that keeps us alive and maintains a state of good health.
Pranic Healing is a comprehensive system of energetic medicine, with a structured and specific approach. It is a no-touch methodology that focuses on the application of pranic energy to prevent and alleviate physical and psychological imbalance and disease.

It is based on the principle of connection between the physical body and the energetic field. By working systematically on the energetic centers and field, a new pattern is created that supports and catalyzes the body's innate ability to heal. It is a tested system of energetic medicine developed by Master Choa Kok Sui, and is taught uniformly throughout the world.

WHY?
Before modern medicine, people had other means of healing, which we have largely lost touch with. Many individuals knew techniques of energetic healing for the alleviation and prevention of disease, and studied health and healing in ways that addressed the whole person—a physical, energetic, emotional, mental, and spiritual being. These courses are systematic, easy to understand and apply, immensely informative, practical and empowering. People from all walks of life have benefited from these courses. This is your gateway to the fascinating world of subtle energy.

This training is designed to expand the way we view wellness and healing in today’s world and impart a system of techniques to assist in the development of energetic awareness, sensitivity, and knowledge.

BASIC PRANIC HEALING
In this course, you will learn about prana (life-force and chi energy) and how it is utilized for healing. You will understand the energetic anatomy of the body, and learn the foundational principles and techniques of the practice.

- Energetic anatomy and the function of the major energetic centers (chakras)
- Energetic diagnostics or scanning - a technique to identify areas of energetic congestion and depletion
- Energetic Cleansing—techniques to remove congested or diseased energy from the body, organs
and chakras
- Energizing—safe ways to transfer prana to areas that need healing

- Learn ways to protect yourself energetically, prevent energetic drainage and contamination
- Experience the energetic benefits of breath-work and meditation
- Divine Healing—using prayer and invocation for healing yourself and others
- Distance Healing—understand the principles it is based upon and how to do it
- Self-Healing—ways to manage your own energetic health and prevent / alleviate ailments

Hatha Yoga & Live Music

Hatha Yoga and Live Music with Dana van Breukelen & Marieke Versteegen

Hatha Yoga and Live Music invite us to relax both body and mind. Sacred music, the vibrations of ancient mantras and traditional hatha yoga practice, all bring us to a space of inner silence and bliss, which is our true nature. We combine yoga and music in a meditative yoga class.

"...music is intended to enable the mind to melt into melody" - Swami Sivananda

This special class is a gentle and slow asana practice (inspired by the Sivananda hatha yoga tradition), accompanied with soft and soothing guitar music, harmonium and voice.

There will be time for long relaxations in between the asanas to let the body recharge and to relax the mind. Sound vibrations have a healing effect on our physical, mental and spiritual body and bring them into harmony with our true blissful nature.

During these classes we invite you to open the heart, to let go, to leave thinking behind and rest in the silence of being.

About Marieke & Dana
Marieke experienced joy, stability and lightness from her yoga practice and this inspired her to take the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in the Himalayas in 2014. She is drawn to the devotional path of Bhakti yoga and chanting. Her classes are meditative and gentle, guiding people inwards.

Dana grew up in a yoga ashram and was drawn to Indian music, language and mantras from a young age. She guides people into deep relaxation and stillness with gentle guitar play and healing voice. In 2016 she also completed the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in the Himalayas, India.

Sound Journey ๑ Sound Of Silence with Singing Bowls

Sound Journey with Frank Klank & Friends is described as an exceptional live music experience that connects guests with a deeper and more heart-centered world music space through instruments. Travel and discover the healing medicine of the sounds of the soothing singing bowls, the gong, a flute and drums - and let them be a bliss for your ears.

About Frank Klank
"Somewhere at the end of the late 90’s the sound of singing bowls started to trigger me. The sound of the bowls caught me, and out of curiosity I bought singing bowls. The woman in the shop told me: ‘take all the time you need for choosing a singing bowl. The bowls will choose you’. I truly experienced this, and took the time I needed.

Now, about 16 years later, after having a multiply of 4 singing bowls and after discovering loads of new sounds and feelings that happened in my body playing the bowls, I am still wondered about the influences the bowls can have.

I invite you to be curious about what sound can do and to feel what moves inside you if you listen to the sound of the singing bowls. Singing bowls make their own music, music makes vibrations and vibration means moving water. What happens with you and in your body, when knowing our body exists about 60% of water. If water moves a lot can happen, also in a human body.

Frank invites: Ton Akkermans and Carolina Schomper
This musical duo gives workshops in working with and the merging of singing bowls and gong. Ton educated himself in the making of therapeutic and meditative sound instruments. He also works with kids to let them feel more strong-willed, nationally and internationally. Ton has the gift to value the old Tibetan singing bowls to its purpose and to bring them to the energy of today.
Carolina is a dancer, actress, mime player and is educated for years on the spiritual path. She gave meditations and workshops through the whole country and feels an enormous passion for working with singing bowls and gongs.

The Zen Special, a perfect break in the middle of the weekend.

The Art of Relaxation
“The practice of yoga nidra is the act of hearing and the act of feeling, these are the only important factors. In yoga nidra you function on the level of awareness plus the level of listening. In dreams you have no control, in yoga nidra you are the creator of the dream”.
- Swami Satyananda Saraswati

Yoga nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. You will learn and experience to relax consciously.
In combination with yin yoga we want to give you a full experience of total relaxation in 1.5 hours. We will prepare ourselves for winter and strengthen the kidney energy. This will charge your battery! We will finish the class with drinking a vegan chai together.

In what way does yoga nidra affect the body and mind?
Relaxation, rest and silence are the keywords for this Saturday afternoon.

ADE Conscious Talks ๑ Going Green in The Club Scene

conscioustalks-green-ADE.png

Did you know you can convert kinetic energy of dancing people into electricity? That the millions of liters water at festivals, parties and clubs could be recycled with one big water tank, and that plants can filter this old water into new drinking water? That solar power could convert it into nice warm water? Or that a plant can power your lamp? At The Conscious Club we think it’s time for new green innovations to take place in the club scene.

We’ve invited two green pioneers in the industry to explore how you can design your club, party or festival in a more sustainable way. Expect a dynamic talk with Q&A and groundbreaking green solutions for a better future, and become a pioneer yourself in the club scene!

ADE Restorative Sessions ๑ Yin & Chakra Journey

yin-chakra-ADE.png

Relax into a Restorative Yin practice and Chakra Meditation during Amsterdam Dance Event. The perfect moment to take a break and breath to restore your overall balance.

Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is a practice that is easily accessible for all levels and ages. It also complements the more active styles of Yoga perfectly and we need Yin & Yang activities to live a balanced life. During the practice we hold specific Yoga poses for 3 up to 8 minutes to target the Yin Tissue* of our body. Why? To regain flexibility, to create a feeling of space and relief and to strengthen the bones in our body. The poses will do the work for us whilst we focus on cultivating patience. The practice will feel like one long meditative and mindful Yin Yoga practice and it will assist us in training our mind to stay mindful and present.

Chakra Meditation
The teacher Ike Dielesen will combine the Yin practices with a Chakra Meditation. The chakra’s are connected to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. We will focus on the Manipura & Vissudha chakra.
Manipura is the centre of fire, a place of your identity, will power and self-esteem: The seat of our determination. A place where we digest food, and also life. Related to the question, who am I?
Visuddha on the other hand is the centre of communication to the world, but it’s also the centre of listening. How do I express and how do I communicate with others? This evening will be about the loop between these two.

We will be doing a bit of pranayama - breathing exercises - to create more relaxation, focus and balance to continue your ADE program fully in the present moment.

Date: Friday the 20th of October
Time: 19:30-21:30
Location: The Conscious Club – Lauriergracht 142, Amsterdam

ADE Restorative Sessions ๑ Maori Haka Dance​​​​​​​

21199604_1816118668718664_559917238263929103_o.jpg

 

We, modern people, are losing connection with our elemental forces, the forces that we need to exist in our original Habitat: instinct and intuition, unity consciousness, the ability to communicate with plants and animals, but also a natural contact with the spiritual world. Get back to your Primal Being with the ancient dance of the Maori (New Zealand): Haka.

As indigenous people the Maori maintained many of their original capabilities. The Maori have retained their traditions in many ceremonies. In this time they return back to the old Maori traditions and develop many programs for the search for the primal own knowing in the connection with nature, the community and the ancestors at its core. This is what makes the Haka work so successful. It is a magical experience to harness the power from its own roots and the ancestral bloodline to call.

The Dutch Haka
The Haka Haruru Ana To Ngaru (Feel the power of the wave) is written especially for Netherlands in 2016 by Vince Ata of the Maori Tuhoe tribe. Vince has been inspired by the force of the water and our connection with that.

This Dutch haka is about the confluence of the female undercurrent and the male upstream to a powerful wave. Doing this haka awakens the fire inside, your life force.

About Marcel Hendriks
On August 2012 Marcel Hendriks got in contact with Tiki Rau Ata, Maori of the Tuhoe tribe for the first time. They gave man-workshops, Tane Mahuta (the hidden man). Through nature and ceremonies, among the Haka, they bring you back in contact with the hidden man. Marcel found this to be a very valuable and indispensable experience for the Dutch man. Since 2013 Marcel is involved with the organisation and gives Maori workshops for men and women, which is an amazing experience every time.

Yoga & Pranayama with Ramon Kinkel

yoga&pranayama.jpg

Yoga & Pranayama Series
Every month at The Conscious Club with Ramon Kinkel we have a special Yoga & Pranayama class. Pranayama is derived from 2 Sanskrit words - Prana (life force) and Ayama (control). Therefore, in its broadest description, Pranayama would mean the control of the flow of life force.

During breathing for Pranayama ‘Inhalation’ (puraka) stimulates the system and fills the lungs with fresh air. ‘Retention’ (kumbhaka) raises the internal temperature and plays an important part in increasing the absorption of oxygen. ‘Exhalation’ (rechak) causes the diaphragm to return to the original position and air full of toxins and impurities is forced out by the contraction of inter-costal muscles. These are the main components leading to Pranayama which massages the abdominal muscles and tones up the working of various organs of the body. Due to the proper functions of these organs, vital energy flows to all the systems. The success of Pranayama depends on proper ratios being maintained between inhalation, exhalation and retention.

The Class
This class we will start with the practice of asana (poses), the third limb of the eight limbs of yoga mentioned in the yoga sutras of Patanjali. By starting the class with asana (poses), the energy will flow through the body and you will sit more comfortable in a meditative pose to practice pranayama. The asana's will be followed by the practice of pranayama, the fourth limb in the yoga sutras. The practice of pranayama will bring the energy in your body back in balance and will clear your mind from thoughts, to get deeper into a guided meditation at the end.

The perfect class to bring yourself back in balance!

About Ramon Kinkel
Years ago, on his search for a healthier and more balanced life, Ramon found the path of yoga. Ramon spent months in ashrams, where he learned and experienced the deepest meanings of yoga. After his spiritual birthday, his guru, dr. Guruji Omanand gave him the name Rama Anand, named after the Hindu god Rama. As Rama Anand, he became teacher and host at Paramanand Ashram Indore, India. Currently his classes include traditional Hatha yoga asana, pranayama (yogic breathing exercises) and meditation.

Kirtan ๑ The Sound of Yoga

21017780_10213006444889644_1824772240_o.jpg

Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Everyone experiences kirtan differently, you can think of it as a sing-along.

A kirtan concert is not your typical concert either. Everyone sits on the floor, and the wallah (leader) sings the mantra, and the audience sings it back. As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with the musicians, the other audience members and yourself. And when the music stops, your mind is quiet.

Because kirtan has roots in India, many of the songs are sung in Sanskrit. Some of you know how powerful singing in an ancient, holy language can be. You can be completely immersed in the sound, with no words to distract the mind. The magic of the chants carry you within.

Kirtan is non-denominational, the Universal language of Spirit, the song of the Soul.

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Class ๑ The Elements of Life

The Elements of Life
Everything in the world, including our bodies, is made of different amounts of the 5 Elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Even the untouchable things, like our communication, has the qualities of the elements in it.

Although all elements are needed in different amounts at different times, an excess or lack of a certain element can create an imbalance. Being able to recognise the elements makes it possible for you to adapt more easily to your surroundings and the events that take place in your life, finding balance in each moment.

A yoga class also consists of the elements. In this workshop Suze Retera will show you how to recognise the elements and understand how they work together and affect both your body and your mind. During the asana practice you will have a chance to experience the effect of the different elements in the different parts of the practice and gain an understanding of the intelligence behind sequencing.

Ayurveda
Ayurveda is the age old Indian science of health and can be seen as the sister of yoga. They compliment each other and are build on many of the same principles and knowledge. Knowing the basics of Ayurveda, your own constitution type (dosha) and how it relates to your yoga practice, can be of great benefit in finding balance in your daily life. In this class you will learn how to recognise the three Ayurvedic Dosha’s: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, and how different yoga asana’s and types of yoga practices influence them. This will give you some practical knowledge that you can easily apply in your yoga practice and daily life.

Spirituality is a dirty word for some and for others it means everything. Why is it that so many people have a different emotion with spirituality?

Love is... ๑ A Meditation Playshop with Krishna Prem

meditationplayshop.jpg

Join in on an afternoon of meditation and cosmic gossip with Krishna Prem.

In this three hour 'playshop' we will explore together the mysteries of life, love and meditation. Love is the feminine way to enlightenment and meditation is the masculine way.

Krishna Prem, also known as Michael Mogul, is an author of "Gee You Are You" as well as being a meditation teacher. Krishna Prem left America over forty years ago in search of himself. Arriving in India, he met his teacher and friend Osho, who simply said: "If you really want to know who you are, be a joke unto yourself. Do not take yourself so seriously."

For more information on Krishna Prem check www.geeyouareyou.com

"Meditation means the capacity to be absolutely alone, and Love means the capacity to be absolutely together. Love means rejoicing relatedness; Meditation means rejoicing solitude, aloneness. Both do the same work, because on boththe paths the ego disappears." - Osho

Body Zen helps you develop a lifestyle with a simple and very efficient daily ritual. The daily ritual takes in the beginning only 2 minutes of your time and after a while maximum 10 minutes. You don’t have to go to the gym unless you really want to. Dropping (or gaining) weight is just a positive side effect of Body Zen.

In combination with yin yoga we want to give you a full experience of total relaxation in 1.5 hours. We will prepare ourselves for winter and strengthen the kidney energy. This will charge your battery! We will finish the class with drinking a vegan chai together.

Tibetan Yoga At Full Moon with Mariette de Kroon

Sunday the 9th July 2017: Full Moon power with Tibetan Yoga: Sacred natural cycles & the Body as a vehicle for change!

Lu Jong Tibetan Yoga - gentle and powerful
With Mariette De Kroon

In this workshop we tune in and listen to the natural cycles and learn how we can use the body as a beautiful vehicle for transformation.
Lu Jong Tibetan Yoga is rooted in Bon shamanism & Tantrayana Buddhism where so much wisdom comes together about the cycles in nature, the energies in our body and how body & mind harmoniously work together.

Content workshop:
§ Introduction Lu Jong
§ 5 elements meditation
§ Inner power breathing exercises
§ 5 element movements
§ Movements that help to feel bliss & promote youth & awareness
§ Awareness Meditation

We will feel the 5 element energies and learn how the subtle body works. With very accessible effective movements we create an internal massage that opens channels in a unique special way. With open channels, prana/chi or lung as we call it in Tibetan can flow and takes essence, hormones throughout the body. Result: inner power & relaxation. At the same time by doing these movements we take optimal care of our spine & our health. 
On Full Moon days our body & mind are naturally more open and the effects of the practice is greatly increased.

conscioustalks.jpg

CONSCIOUS TALKS
In July is the kick-off of our second Conscious Talks series, Psychology & Spirituality. Psychology & Spirituality are still seen as two worlds apart, but in fact they are much more intertwined then one would think.

The guest speaker for this series is psychologist Kim Helmus, who did her Master of Science in Clinical and Developmental Psychology in Groningen. Together with Elizabeth Plokker, co-owner of The Conscious Club, they will explain why and how these two worlds are connected.

PSYCHOLOGY & SPIRITUALITY
We've created 6 talks with 6 different subjects. With this series we'll dive into the psychological mechanics of our brain, emotions, thoughts, and personality! We'll explore tools for change and how to build bridges!

With each subject we'll find deeper understanding in what it is, how it works and how we can influence it! Expect dynamic talks with fun exercises to broaden your world. For each talk we've designed an in-depth workshop, so you find new ways to implement it!
