Let me give you some details for the vision sharing circle :
-2 Brrr. Don't forget to freeze in advance considering the night you are going to spend outside. On first of june ! Huah ! But what is clever is to think carefully how to be dressed perfectly warm in a very probably very cold environment. Huah ! The secret is underwear ! Don't forget to put at least three layers of woolen underwear !
-1 Equipment. Very clever is to think about sitting on the floor. Huah ! Cold ! Very clever is to take your yoga mattress with your meditation seat, borrow if you do not have one.
1. Please bring with you an A3 poster about your project. We will pin it to a wall and people will stick their votes underneath it
2. We have 12 candidates. This means that if every candidate has 15 minutes the circle needs three hours. That is impossible, nobody can be concentrated for longer than one and a half hour. That's why you will have only 7 minutes to present your project. Try to formulate sharply and be concise. After 7 minutes there will be a gong and your time is over. Boing !
3. Language. You are free to talk in whatever language you want.
4. The point is verbal language isn' t the most important. Have you heard that thing : Decisions are taken for 80 % on body-language, verbal message only counts for 20 %?
Dresses count for body language, so wear your best clothes ;)
6. Food. I was telling earlier about a Canadian buffet, which means that everybody brings his or her own food. Now we realized that this is complicated. The new rule is : you can bring your food if you want but you can also buy it here (10 CHF for flammenkuech, which is our pizza-like farm specialty and salad). However, we want to create an unforgettable, abundant, magic dessert buffet, so please bring a dessert with you. For Breakfast on Sunday morning there will be enough fresh bread, butter, jam, milk and coffee.
7. Music. Yes, please bring your songs….
8. No cars at our place in Masesselin. Whoever comes by car has to park the car somewhere else. The best thing is to leave your car at the village and join those who came by public transport in walking the last 3km along the river. This walk of about a half an hour will take you into another world. You will enter into a different state of mind.
9. No cellphones in Masesselin. We are in a nature reserve and we do not have cellphone coverage. No signal. We have a electrosensitive refugee living here and we welcomed his présence to make him a good pretext to get clean with electromagnetic waves. No wifi, no waves, everything by cables. It’s a choice of life and that’s why we ask all our guests to leave their cellphones in the car or at home. You also can put your cellphone in a big metall anti-electrowave board at the entrance of the place.
