Gerichtstr. 23, front building, ground floor – the entire space is ground floor, we have a ramp to get in, and a barrier free bathroom. Please let us know if you have other special needs, we’ll try to provide support. Please note: The entire space is designated as an “Open Greeting Zone”, which means that it is a place where anyone can feel comfortable walking up to anyone else and introduce themselves. Our events are often bilingual in English & German. Please let us know if you don’t understand. Most of the time we can organize translation on the spot.

Participants are encouraged to use their existing project ideas, interests, curiosities, questions and talents as a starting point. In order to inspire some clever new ideas, participants are invited to use the Baumhaus ‘Concept Catalyzers’ which are in the form of animated text installations.
 
The Concept Catalyzers are set to help participants riff on the general notions of:
• creating a Potential Renaissance
• experiencing more Immersive Realities

Exploring The Inner Commons – workshop, personal sustainability
Oct 20 @ 14:00 – 17:00
Exploring The Inner Commons - workshop, personal sustainability
Talk & Workshop – Exploring The Inner Commons
a deep dive into personal sustainability
 
by Scott Bolden, Co-founder of Baumhaus Berlin
 
Doors Open @ 13:00
Workshop from 14:00 – 17:00
 
If you really want to make the world a better place then a great place is to start with yourself because no matter where you go or what you do, you can not escape yourself… Besides, doesn’t it make sense that a truly sustainable society would be composed of more balanced individuals?
 
The Inner Commons is an intuitively understandable, flexible and contextual framework developed by Scott Bolden that can be used to catalyze a process of self understanding and resolving common issues we all deal with. The concepts discussed in this workshop are based on simple, root level, universal experiences of the human condition and a bit of common sense. Because of this, insights that participants gain about themselves can also provide insights to understanding and resolving issues with others as well.
 
Requirements: comfortable clothing, a notebook and an open mind…
 
Please confirm participation with a short email to info@baumhausberlin.de with the subject: Inner Commons
 
Pay-as-you-feel €10 – €25, after the workshop (includes coffee, tea, water & snacks)
We ask participants to consider:
• their personal budget
• the value of their experiences during the workshop in the Baumhaus
• the value of supporting the Baumhaus so that we can continue facilitating these and various other types of experiences

This workshop is being offered as part of the 7th annual Emergent Berlin festival of sustainable initiatives from October 11 until 20. Program event details can be seen here on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/458885168286435/

Baumhaus Community Networking Night

Baumhaus weekly Community Networking Night is about bringing together people from all walks of life who share a common desire; to act on their impulse to do what they can to make the world a better place.

Its about enjoying meeting interesting people in an authentic and informal atmosphere, developing organic relationships, through sharing perspectives and collaboratively supporting each other.

What makes community nights in the Baumhaus really special is the great vibe of the space and people…

Program

Come as early as 17:00 to join the food preparation or a bit later to enjoy some informal networking and community building during the Potluck Buffet. Bring what you have from home to share. After dinner we dive into another active meditative jam session… Feel most welcome to come and join us!

17:00 Doors open: Bring food to share & help preparing the Potluck-Buffet
20:00 Buffet & chill & open networking in the Open Greeting Zone*
20:45 Announcements (1min), News, Food for Thought
21:30 I.G.O.** Vocal Jam Session – start moving to the back room, warming up and then jamming!

The address is Gerichtstr. 23 in the front house on the ground floor, you can walk in our door from the sidewalk. We have some drinks available at the door but it is ok to bring your own too.

* Open Greeting Zone – an area, where you can feel free to walk up to any person or group, introduce yourself, and be welcomed into the conversation.

** Improvisational Groove Orchestra (I.G.O.) – a fun way to experience authentic connection and community through exploring a commonly created sound space. (description & links to examples below)

I.G.O. Thursday Meditative Vocal Jam Sessions @ Baumhaus

We meet every Thursday to listen, respond, observe and curiously play with the sounds our voices create together. Our objective is to tune into the common feeling we are developing in the present moment.

Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focused on only the sound space without any other distractions. We usually are more beginners than experienced singers, and that’s absolutely fine. It is a learning process in progress, each time balancing ourselves in volume and expression to merge into the group sound space, allowing everyone to hear and be heard, naturally developing our own musical styles.

All levels and voice types are welcome! Just make sure to be on time: Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in for everyone.

Oct 30 @ 19:00 – 22:00
Flow - a special musical meditation series @ Das Baumhaus Berlin | Berlin | Berlin | Germany
Flow :: Special I.G.O. Sessions (last Wednesday of each month)
 
Flow is a state of being… an experience when you allow yourself to be 100% fully engaged in the present moment in a feedback loop between clarity and satisfaction. It is an undeniable sensation where things seem to be more effortless, pleasurable, in sync, and you can easily sense a connection with something greater than yourself; this is what we will create…:
 
• a connected and mindful meditation where it is possible to blissfully surf the cutting edge of the present moment together…
 
• a game where it’s possible to feel excited and calm in the same moment, and everyone can win as much as they like…
 
Scott Bolden, co-founder of Das Baumhaus Berlin will share some very easy, practical and effective methods developed during the last 3 years of facilitating the “Improvisational Groove Orchestra” (I.G.O.) improv vocal jam sessions. Within 20 minutes participants learn to use the common sound space to create resonance in the form of improvisational music where it is quite common to experience some real flow moments…
 
It is very easy to participate, no musical talent or training is required so anyone is welcome to join. Most of the session is done with eyes closed to avoid visual distractions and keep focus on the co-created sound space. During these sessions we will also have special guest instrumental musicians, poets, writers and beat-boxers etc… If you would like to be a special guest, please send us a message.
 
Important – if you have never done this in the Baumhaus before and can not make it in time for the intro and warm up, then please wait until the next session to join. It is very important to understand the methodology and warm up in the group before joining in!
 
Program:
 
19:00 – Doors open, meet and greet
 
19:45 – Introduction, warm up & first jams (planting seeds)
 
20:30 – Break
 
20:45 – Second round of jams (human sequencer game + other fun stuff)
 
21:30 – Closing & feedback
 
+ TBD – poets, singers, instrumentalists etc. send mail to info@baumhausberlin.de to reserve a guest spot.
 
Here are some recording samples from past sessions…

«Klima sozial?!» Vernetzungsbrunch & Workshop
Wedding Gespräche No.17
eine Veranstaltung von trim tab collective

**Need translation? Try deepl.com/translator**

Nur wenn wir die Würde des Menschen und soziale Teilhabe in den Mittelpunkt stellen, wird die Transformation zur Nachhaltigkeit gelingen. Deshalb legen wir den Fokus bei diesem Wedding Gespräch auf das soziale Klima im Kiez – wie immer mit der Frage: Was können wir hier im Wedding konkret selber tun? Zu Gast: die AG Patenschaften von Wedding.hilft und Menina mit einem Workshop zu Critical Whiteness”.

11.00 bis 13.00 Uhr: VERNETZUNGS-BRUNCH
Zu Gast ist die AG Patenschaften von Wedding.hilft

Los geht’s mit dem Vernetzungs-Brunch von Klima-Netzwerk-Wedding! Von und für alle, die sich im Kiez für ein besseres Klima einsetzen wollen, mit Zeit zum Kennenlernen und für Austausch. Um 12.00 Uhr gibt es einen kurzen Input/Call for Support von der AG Patenschaften, einer ehrenamtlichen Initiative von Wedding.hilft, die Patenschaften zwischen alten und neuen Kiezbewohner*innen vermittelt.

Aktuell braucht das ehrenamtliche Team der AG Unterstützung: über 30 Geflüchtete stehen derzeit auf der Warteliste für eine Patenschaft. Zusammen wollen wir überlegen: Wer hat Interesse, selber eine Patenschaft zu übernehmen oder das AG-Team zu unterstützen? Wie könnte eine erfolgreiche Öffentlichkeitsarbeit der AG im Kiez aussehen? Über welche Wege können interessierte Weddinger*innen erreicht und für Patenschaften begeistern werden?

14.00 Uhr: WORKSHOP „CRITICAL WHITENESS”
Mit Menina Ugwuoke

In diesem Workshop werden wir uns mit unseren unterschiedlichen Positionierungen in einer von Rassismus geprägten Welt auseinandersetzen.

Was sind weiße Privilegien und wie können wir sie einsetzen um gemeinsam für eine diskriminierungsfreie Welt zu kämpfen? Eine Einführung in die machtsensible Rassismuskritik. Der Workshop wird in deutscher Lautsprache stattfinden. Übersetzungen ins Englische mögliche.

Über Menina: Menina Ugwuoke ist Künstlerin und freiberufliche politische Bildungsreferentin. Seit über fünf Jahren arbeitet sie vor allem zu den Themen Rassismus, Kolonialismus, Kapitalismus, Feminismus und Interksektionalität.

Even though the accident dates back to 1984, the tragedy continues. The factory building is weathering down in the heart of the million city of Bhopal. Water and soil remain contaminated. The people that live around the factory building become sick, children are born with disabilities. Meanwhile, the corporate culprit Dow Chemicals/Union Carbide is getting away with impunity. The activist Rachna Dhingra and the Bhopal survivor Nousheen Khan are in Berlin to illustrate the impacts this major corporate crime has had on the city of Bhopal and its people. In addition, they will share with us their fight against the multinational corporation. Afterwards, we want to discuss the roots of corporate impunity, as well as strategies to dismantle it.

I.G.O. Thursday Meditative Vocal Jam Sessions @ Baumhaus

We meet every Thursday to listen, respond, observe and curiously play with the sounds our voices create together. Our objective is to tune into the common feeling we are developing in the present moment.

Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focused on only the sound space without any other distractions. We usually are more beginners than experienced singers, and that’s absolutely fine. It is a learning process in progress, each time balancing ourselves in volume and expression to merge into the group sound space, allowing everyone to hear and be heard, naturally developing our own musical styles.

All levels and voice types are welcome! Just make sure to be on time: Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in for everyone.

You can find tracks from previous I.G.O sessions here:

Flow – a special musical meditation series
Nov 27 @ 19:00 – 22:00
Flow - a special musical meditation series @ Das Baumhaus Berlin | Berlin | Berlin | Germany
Flow :: Special I.G.O. Sessions (last Wednesday of each month)
 
Flow is a state of being… an experience when you allow yourself to be 100% fully engaged in the present moment in a feedback loop between clarity and satisfaction. It is an undeniable sensation where things seem to be more effortless, pleasurable, in sync, and you can easily sense a connection with something greater than yourself; this is what we will create…:
 
• a connected and mindful meditation where it is possible to blissfully surf the cutting edge of the present moment together…
 
• a game where it’s possible to feel excited and calm in the same moment, and everyone can win as much as they like…
 
Scott Bolden, co-founder of Das Baumhaus Berlin will share some very easy, practical and effective methods developed during the last 3 years of facilitating the “Improvisational Groove Orchestra” (I.G.O.) improv vocal jam sessions. Within 20 minutes participants learn to use the common sound space to create resonance in the form of improvisational music where it is quite common to experience some real flow moments…
 
It is very easy to participate, no musical talent or training is required so anyone is welcome to join. Most of the session is done with eyes closed to avoid visual distractions and keep focus on the co-created sound space. During these sessions we will also have special guest instrumental musicians, poets, writers and beat-boxers etc… If you would like to be a special guest, please send us a message.
 
Important – if you have never done this in the Baumhaus before and can not make it in time for the intro and warm up, then please wait until the next session to join. It is very important to understand the methodology and warm up in the group before joining in!
 
Program:
 
19:00 – Doors open, meet and greet
 
19:45 – Introduction, warm up & first jams (planting seeds)
 
20:30 – Break
 
20:45 – Second round of jams (human sequencer game + other fun stuff)
 
21:30 – Closing & feedback
 
+ TBD – poets, singers, instrumentalists etc. send mail to info@baumhausberlin.de to reserve a guest spot.
 
Here are some recording samples from past sessions…

Workshop: Business model – Sustain the project by structuring and optimizing the exchange of values
Dec 5 @ 18:00 – 21:00
Workshop: Business model - Sustain the project by structuring and optimizing the exchange of values

a workshop by “comit”:

To build a sustainable project, a balance has to be found between the project’s vision and its financial viability: how to make the project resilient without losing sight of its mission, and how to fulfill the vision without exhausting the stakeholders?

comit helps entrepreneurs and NGOs develop sustainable projects, by conceiving and adapting methods and tools to empower, entrepreneurs, freelancers and managers to structure the business-model of their organisations. Throughout this workshop, we will introduce a way to set up a strong business-model in line with the vision. This approach will then be applied on your projects through exchanges and examples.

6pm: Doors open
6.30pm – 8pm: Workshop in the back room of Baumhaus
8pm: Community Dinner (we’ll join Baumhaus Community Night in the front room)
