WORKSHOPS & Projects
The Misa Criolla Project is a circle -dance project where our dance is our prayer. The music of Ariel Ramirez (Argentina ) is a big inspiration to dance this prayer of ca. 25 minutes in one go. There for the International Trainers of the Misa Criolla offer several workshops in their country to practise with people who are interested in joining us. By dancing and meditating this mass, we bring the different parts of the mass back to its essence and translate it to an universal spirituality. www.nannikloke.com
The 'Magid of Amsterdam', Shura Lipovsky, is inspired by the figure of 'Magid', the Hasidic healer and master, Baal Shem Tov, who gave new impuls to mystical Judaism in Eastern Europe in the 18th century. Shura Lipovsky designs the magister of the 21st century as a female artist: she is a singer, storyteller and transpersonal-trained psychologist. In her workshops Nigunim (-wordless mystical melodies), old and new, self-composed Yiddish songs are sung, stories told and reflected in meditative exercises on topics on life issues from a Jewish-Kabbalistic perspective. These workshops are for all who love to sing and deepen their spirituality, with an emphasis on the encounter with oneself and others, as well as the impulse to a universal transpersonal soulful spirituality. www.shuralipovsky.com

Choir ´Singphonie´. A break from everyday life, singing together, getting quiet with each other. Be carried by sounds, meditate on the sounds of tanpura and improvise, explore your own voice and train. Together with - experienced and less experienced - singers to work on pieces from choral literature, from the Renaissance to the modern to world music ... If you feel like it, you are exactly right with the SINGPHONIE. Our aim is to combine choral music and spiritual experience. Music is always a mirror of the infinite for us. And when we sing, it is just this that can ring in us and touch us deeply. The director of our choir is the Dutch countertenor and conductor Maarten van Leer. http://www.singphonie.de
