Welcome to Quinta Ten Chi, where earth and sky meet in your heart!
A place dedicated to create a community of practices to listen to the wisdom of the body and to bring forth a transformation of humanity toward harmony, cooperation and peace. We invite you all to a journey from Ego to Eco awareness.
Quinta Ten Chi is an epicenter for the transformation of humanity. From Ego to Eco, we listen to the universe’s emergent future songs to tune in with our hearts, heads and hands and be conscious cocreators of a world of peace, abundance and love.
We take time to listen to our bodies, each others and nature.
We thrive collectively and inspire others to flourish in collaboration and celebration of diversity.
The moment is NOW, and NOW is all that ever is. We can spend a lot of time in other places and times, hunted or delighted in something other than what is HERE and NOW.
And in the moment we can open up the possibility of listening to more than the busy chattering of our frequently anxious minds. Listening to the quality of the moment, each one a unique combination, unless we “box” it with constraining words and concepts.
Listening to what wants to be born, and delightfully allowing the space for that to happen, allowing our mind, heart and will to be open to the unknown in which we simply are, and like the apple tree we share ourselves generously and graciously to the world.
How can we find flow individually and collectively?
How do we dance with each other and life?
How do we rediscover the sacredness and preciousness of each moment?
We focus our work on awareness of individual, group and quality of the social field. We base our practice daily on Social Presencing Theater , a methodology specifically designed to support the development of more generative and joyful systems through awareness based social art practices, that allow each system to see its blindspots in action while also nurturing creativity, openness and flow. We combine SPT with a variety of expressive arts and connection with Nature and Spirit, to guide the development of the project in harmony with the land. and its beings. We sit in circles and share our humanity and inspirations, through the practice of Way of Council. We host a variety of practices that cultivate well being, harmony and community like Ecstatic Dance, 5 Rhythms, Gaga, Contact improvisation, Butoh, Kundalini Yoga, Tai Chi and many other somatic practices. We also host shamanic training, with Dee Kyne and we are happy to see a small community of practice from her lineage to start forming.
The vision rests on the fertile grounds of Quinta Ten Chi and our intention is to continue the journey the land started in 1978 with Georges Stobbaerts, Maria Augusta Vascocellos and the amazing group of people that build and caretake for this magical land.
To visit Quinta Ten Chi outside of classes and workshops look at our Welcome Home events, the Weekends during which we open the doors to people that are interested to volunteer, and the Leave your Trace events for creative nomads of all sorts that want to collaborate in making the space even more beautiful and in co-creating events together.
