Want to meet neighbors and other people who want to make the world a better place in Berlin? Our project space is a platform for meeting, events and workshops for a variety of people and organizations…

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.

Flow – a special musical meditation series
Jun 26 @ 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.

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:

Summer Special «Ausflug zur BioKräuterei Oberhavel»
Aug 3 @ 9:00 – 16:30
Summer Special «Ausflug zur BioKräuterei Oberhavel»

Wedding Gespräche No. 13 Summer Special «Ausflug zur BioKräuterei Oberhavel»

Wie bewahren wir Lebendigkeit und fördern einen fruchtbaren Boden? Wir laden ein zu einem Summer Special zur Erholung, Inspiration und Reflektion rund um eine “regenerative (Agrar)kultur”.

Mit S-Bahn und Fahrrad machen wir uns auf den Weg zur BioKräuterei Oberhavel am nördlichen Rand von Berlin. Dort wird uns Gärtnerin Hanna berichten und zeigen, wie regenerativer Ackerbau in der Praxis geht.

Bei einem Workshop-Picknik im Grünen wollen wir uns anschließend über unsere eigene lokale Praxis austauschen. Was können wir von der Haltung und Herangehensweise der Gärtner lernen? Was nehmen wir mit für unsere eigenen nachbarschaftlichen Klimaschutz-Praktiken in der Stadt?

09.00 | Treffpunkt am Baumhaus (Abfahrt 9:15)
11.30 | Führung & Gespräch mit Hanna von der BioKräuterei Oberhavel: Was will & wie geht “regenerative Landwirtschaft”?
13.00 | Picknick & Workshop: Was kann & soll eine “regenerative Kultur” in unserem Kiez?
16.30 | Ankunft in Berlin

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Regenerative Landwirtschaft schaut auf den Boden als ein lebendiges Medium. Es geht darum, wie das Bodenleben unterstützt, aktiviert und gestärkt werden kann, in Wechselwirkungen mit den Pflanzen, und eine hohe und langfristige Bindung von C02 ermöglicht. – Im übertragenen Sinne brauchen wir das auch hier im Wedding: auf den Kiez als lebendigen Ort schauen. Es geht darum, eine regenerative Kultur des Engagements zu entwickeln – unser soziales ‘Ökosystem’ zu erhalten, zu verbessern und wachsen zu lassen. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Anmeldung & Orga: Um dabei zu sein, meldet euch bitte per Mail an hallo [eeth] trimtabcollective [punkth] org an. Da die Plätze begrenzt sind, ist die Anmeldung verbindlich. Bitte sagt uns rechtzeitig bescheid, falls ihr doch nicht teilnehmt, damit wir den Platz weitergeben könne. Die Veranstaltung ist kostenfrei, ihr müsst also nur mit eurem Drahtesel (bitte pünktlich!) zum Treffpunkt kommen.

Fermentieren & Hafermilch zur kollektiven Selbstversogung

Wie können wir zusammen große Mengen gerettetes Gemüse haltbar machen & selber Hafermilch herstellen?

Wir arbeiten weiter an einem Format, wie wir zusammen einmal im Monat mit einer gemeinsamen Aktion* viel produzieren können, zum Mitnehmen nach Hause für alle!

Diesen Dienstag wollen wir wieder fermentieren (letzten Monat hatten wir einen erfolgreichen ersten Durchlauf) und uns mit Hafermilch beschäftigen. Zu Gast ist Mathias, der uns zeigen wird, wie er für seine ganze Familie regelmäßig Hafermilch produziert. Wir sind gespannt, ob wir seine Methoden übernehmen können.

Kommt vorbei & fermentiert & überlegt mit!

XR Berlin: Train the Speaker / Sprecher*Innen Weiterbildung
Aug 23 @ 18:00 – 21:00
XR Berlin: Train the Speaker / Sprecher*Innen Weiterbildung

Komm vorbei und lass uns gemeinsam lernen, wie wir sinnvoll über die Klimakrise, das in ihr schlummernde Elend und sinnvolle Formen des politischen Protests sprechen und diskutieren können. Lerne den XR Vortrag “Aufstand oder Aussterben” zu halten.

Wir stecken mittendrin. Mittendrin in der Klimakrise, welche zur größten Katastrophe der Menschheitsgeschichte werden könnte. Mittendrin in der Klimakrise, die zum aussterben unzähliger Tier- und Pflanzenarten, zu weltweitem Wassermangel und Ernährungskrisen, dem Zusammenbruch von Ökosystemen und Gesellschaftsordnungen, sowie zu Fluchtbewegungen nie dagewesener Ausmaße und Kriegen um knapper werdende Ressourcen führen könnte.

Ein extrem wichtiger Prozess in dieser Situation ist Bildung und Austausch zu diesem Thema, also zur Klimakrise an sich und ihrem Ausmaß, aber auch zu mögichen politischen Lösungen dieser Krise. Als soziale Bewegung, setzen wir bei Extinction Rebellion seit Anbeginn auf diesen Prozess der Bildung und des Austausches als eins der Kernelemente unserer Aktivitäten: Seit der Gründung von XR bis heute ist der Vortrag “Aufstand oder Aussterben? Über die Klimakrise, andere ökologische Krisen und zivilen Ungehorsam” (Eng: “Heading for Extinction and what to do about it.”) das zentrale Element unserer Mobilisierungsarbeit. Für den Vortrag haben wir einige der zentralen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse zur Klimakrise zusammengetragen und in ein relativ schockierendes Bild dessen, was uns bevorsteht, zusammgefasst.

Wir haben darüber hinaus die sozialwissenschaftliche Forschung zu politischem und gesellschaftlichem Wandel sowie zu den Erfolgsfaktoren sozialer Bewegungen unter die Lupe genommen auf der Suche nach den sinnvollsten Formen des Protests. All das haben wir dann in einen netten Vortrag verpackt, den wir rund um die Welt halten, um Menschen zu informieren über die erschreckende Lage unseres Planeten und den erschütternden Pfad auf dem wir uns befinden, und um Leute zu motivieren politisch aktiv zu werden und sich für das (Über)Leben einzusetzen.

Dieser Vortrag ist ein andauernder Prozess und quasi ein “Open Source” Projekt. Wir wollen dass dieser Vortrag so oft gehalten wird wie möglich. Und dafür wollen wir so viele Menschen wie möglich haben, die sich in der Lage fühlen diesen Vortrag zu halten. Und genau dafür ist dieser Workshop.

Love & rage,
XR Berlin

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.

Flow – a special musical meditation series
Sep 25 @ 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…

ABOUT
 
Intuitive painting is a creative process that combines intuition, playful exploration and freedom of expression. I invite everyone to engage in art-making free from:
Perfectionism – by silencing our inner critic
Comparison – by accepting the uniqueness of each human being
Constant need for external approval – by looking inward to find self-worth
 
This class is not about creating a perfect painting. It is about the process of exploring the unknown, accepting imperfections and letting go of fear and shame. True creativity is born when we face the blank canvas without any expectations, or specific goals and allow the painting to unfold organically.
 
Participants have the chance to work on any subject, emotion or thought they wish to explore. However, a general theme is always provided. A short guided meditation opens the practice and helps to relax the mind and the body. The classes include an introduction to the acrylic painting technique as well as some guidance through the creative process.
 
Here are some tips to make your participation an amazing experience:
– Wear clothes you don’t mind getting paint on (Although I will provide aprons, I suggest wearing old clothes)
– Please arrive 10 minutes before the class to give yourself time to get settled

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:
