Endings and New Beginnings
Join our Berlin Change Day
on Dec. 9th, 2023

Often neglected in change processes is the need for the old to die and the new to emerge. However, the bottom of the U, described by Otto Scharmer, has become an important part of our collective understanding on how the New comes into the world.

When we looked at the history of the Berlin Change Days we have been sensing that something was dying. We don’t know what that might mean, therefore we invite you to celebrate the end or co-design a new beginning. At the same time, we want to provide the opportunity the meaning of “letting go – letting come” for our professional work.

We invite you into an outstanding space for gathering, saying goodbye to 2023, maybe to foregone projects, to old stories we want to leave behind, and to celebrate new beginnings.

We are offering a small programme and the focus will be on meeting the tribe, as we have been doing for the last 15 years! A gig we were already able to secure is Sebastian Walzik who will lead us into a special form of constellation:

Our agenda for Dec. 9th, 2023:
9:00 am
Venue: Atelier Gardens, Oberlandstraße 26-35, 12099 Berlin
Situated on the southern edge of Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport, the campus of Berliner Union Film Ateliers (BUFA) has been a key part of Berlin’s film and television industry since its first buildings were constructed over a century ago. Now, BUFA is expanding its user base beyond filmmakers to encompass all forms of ‘change makers’, including organisations and individuals with a focus on activism and social justice – catalysed by a sustainable transformation of its physical spaces to become Atelier Gardens.

Intuitive Archery
with Annette Birkholz, Bogenakademie Berlin
Inner attitude, mindfulness and self-direction are the cornerstones of Intuitive Archery. If we are connected to them, our actions become as natural and at the same time as clear and elegant as a breath.
Intuitive archery lets us connect our intuition with a mindful state of perception and the right tension in our body: This leads us to a natural presence, visibility and strength. In Intuitive Archery, we use traditional longbows, which - in contrast to the bows of sport archery - do not have a sight. As with throwing, the shooters manage to gradually optimize the movement and to gain a suitable attitude through a continuous comparison of the goal and what has actually been achieved. In other words: we hit without aiming.

Constellation work with MEMES
with Sebastian Walzik
The inventor of this approach is Hans Hein, medical doctor and psychotherapist. A meme represents the structural information of ideational concepts, compared to a gen holding the structural information of corporeality.
A meme consists of four aspects: action, emotion, structure and vision. If one aspect is missing or lacking energy, the meme cannot evolve and is stuck fast. Doing a constellation work with a meme follows the idea of getting into contact with it, enriching it with consciousness - what is there may be, and what may be, may also change.

Open Space: What do we want to begin, and what needs to end?
We’ll open the space for the topics you want to explore further. Be it your personal project that wants to emerge or end, or a process that you are facilitating with a client, or a method or tool you would like to present. The floor is yours…
