Experiment of Being Like Water

What’s it all about?

Water is essential to our lives and to the Eco-system of the Earth. Yet, have you ever observed and contemplated the wisdom demonstrated by the shapeless and formless stage of water?

You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”  —– Bruce Lee

Although passive, water can move through all things.  Whilst gentle, water can wear away rocks.  It flows without any resistance, it nourishes all things without any judgements.

What will we cover?

In this workshop, we invite you to join us at an Experiment of “Being Like Water”, which is a central concept in the ancient Chinese Taoism.

Together, we will look at some ancient teachings in Tao De Jing (道德经)for its wisdom, but we will also explore what ‘Being Like Water’ means to you, and how relevant this could be for our modern day life:
–       Can you love like water without any conditions?

–       Can you relate to others like water without any judgement?

–       Can you live our lives like water without resistance?

In order to ground our understanding, we will infuse the workshop with playful exercises, mindful and heartful meditations to allow you to discover your unique understanding of being like water.
