PROGRAM IN BAUMHAUS SPACE

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…

Check out our program below to see the schedule of events. And if you think something is missing, maybe you could create that event in Baumhaus yourself. Get inspired and involved in Baumhaus project space!

Gerichtstr. 23, front building, ground floor – the entire space is ground floor, we have a ramp to get in, and a barrier free bathroom (no handles). 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.

If not indicated otherwise: 3-8€ (pay-as-you-feel) for the space

You can find our events also at Facebook & sometimes Twitter

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…

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.

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.

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.
 
Here are some recording samples from past sessions…

There will be a talk, and we will work together through some common situations that new and veteran vegans often face.

Space is limited. Reserve your spot now!

Schedule: 17:30 arrival, workshop starts 18:00 sharp, ends 20:15
followed by Baumhaus community dinner (vegan buffet)
