Dragon Dreaming Intensive

Dragon Dreaming is a creative method that helps you realize your ideas, alone or in a group. In this workshop you will experience how your idea (dream) is transformed into a joint vision, and attractive to others. Besides that you learn how dreams can be lead to action,  how to navigate your project, which factors determine it’s success or failure and how to recognize them.

Exploring all phases of Dragon Dreaming, we will create a joint project, based on inputs and needs of all participants. Learning by doing, you will be equipped with tools to persevere and refine your ideas when faced with dragons (challenges). To overcome blockages or win new project members and supporters, you will be able to use deep listening and charismatic communication.

This powerful technique and the beautiful environment will boost your intuition and creativity. You will find out how celebration and acknowledgment contribute to success and experience this through visiting special places on Brač and time in the nourishing landscape or on the beach.

After this workshop, you will brim with ideas and be versed in the magic of Dragon Dreaming for your projects and life....more.

Visit to the Dragon's Cave

Being one of the most mystical places on the island Brač, the dragon's cave in Murvica with its multitude of reliefs is well worth a visit.
In my perception, this cave forms part of an ancient landscape temple and played a role in fertility rites.
Join us for a tour to learn and experience more of its exciting past.

We will travel to Bol by car and will meet in Milna at the bust stop at 9.15 hrs. For those coming from the mainland, please take the ferry at 9.00 hrs from Split, and we will pick you up from Supetar.
The final meeting point will be at the first car park in Murvica at 11.00 hrs. The walk to the cave takes approximately 45 Minutes each way. After the cave visit, we can have a picnic at the beach in Murvica.

Sabine Engelhardt and Zoran Kojdic will give guide you. Please bring water, a packed lunch, 50 kn for the entrance fee and sturdy boots. Donations are welcome!

We are planning to use our own cars for transport, so please register with Sabine (sabine@geaviva.net, +385997493711) by 13th October.

Contact improvisation – returning to our moving being
This contact improvisation weekend combines workshops and jams that bring us in touch with the inner and outer spaces. Whilst moving together with others we attune our inner felt sense with that of our fellow dancers and the environment. We harness our senses into movement, dynamic, fluid, strong and visceral!
We have chosen the eco camp Gea Viva on the Croatian island Brač for a special contact improvisation experience. Located in a tranquil Mediterranean garden with stunning sea views, it is an ideal place to delve deeply into nature, unwind, relax, meet like-minded people and find inspiration. More...

Creating the eco home of your dreams

This is a specially crafted course to learn about eco building at our beautiful retreat camp. It combines hands-on building experience, lectures and design exercises to help you create your own dream house! Be inspired by a multitude of techniques and projects you will see around the Gea Viva site, delve deeply into eco living while you are here and enjoy a supportive, joyful learning environment!

Eco buildings are designed to minimize their impact on the environment, by using natural, renewable or reycled materials, being well insulated and incoprorating the principles of passive solar design. By designing floor plans cleverly, it is possible to save a lot of effort, materials and money! Practicals will illustrate these principles and deepen the principles learned. These cover hands-on construction as well as design excercises that playfully explore your own dream house, taking your own project to the next level. In case you already have some skteches, a site or ideas, please bring them along.


On the Gea Viva site, you will find a range of inspiring structures: a greenwood and reed pavilion, a kitchen made from ferrocement, compost toilets and a strawbale cabin.....more.
