Medtate every day Meet people without fear and play Baba Hari Das

German Acro Yoga Gathering Celebrating family - BUDDHAYA DHAMMAYA SANGAYA Kula is Sanskrit and means familiy, home or extended family. AcroYoga blends the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness of Thai massage, and the dynamic power of Acrobatics. These three ancient lineages form this practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness. There are 7 main elements that make up the practice: circle ceremony, asana, partner flow, Thai massage, therapeutic flying, inversions & spotting, and partner acrobatics. Our highest aim is to bring individuals into a state of union with themselves, with each other, and with the divine. From this place of mutual support the true self can be realized, celebrated and shared for the benefit of all. There are a few Kulas known in the world, which have a ceremonial exchange system. Inspired by these


Kulas, as they are in East Maui for example, or in the Czech republic, we want to have such a ceremonial exchange in the beautiful and most sunny part of Germany in the very south, in the wine street. In the traditional Kula exchange of the Kula ring which consists of 18 island communities in the Milne Bay Province of Papua New Guinea participants travel at times hundreds of miles by canoe on order to exchange Kula valuables which consist of shelldisc necklaces (veigun) that are traded to the north (circling the ring counterclockwise direction) and shell armbands (circling clockwise). When the traditional Kula exchanges valueables such as „non-use“ items, we would like to exchange life, healing, wisdom, Metta. Energy and Techniques for your own use and the world around you. To create a more

healthy, more open, more loving environment for yourself and the world. Just like the traditional Kula, where valuables never remain for long in the hands of recipients, where they must be passed on within a certain amount of time, thus constantly circling around the ring, we want to pass on our valuables, which are the experience and wisdom we gathered in our own lives and have them cicling around the ring of our created Kula. We want to invite you to come and join the Kula, family, home... to extend the family. Come and be what you are, share, meditate, meet people without fear AND PLAY!!!
