The Freedom of What If

July 17th–19th 2020
Creative Workshop with Majida Heiß, Zuleikha, Pir Zia & Mirza Inayat Khan, Stella Biel, Maureen Zollinger & Ula Wyss

“The human spirit lives on creativity and dies in conformity and routine.” Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan

The inspiration for this seminar is to be found in the two words from Pir Vilayat that immediately remind us of what is possible – “what if?”

For it is here that what troubles us can meet our imagination and in this intermingling new possibility is born for ourselves, each other and the world.

In our time together we will:

  • Heart and soul  embodied, explore our relationship to freedom, and play. Zuleikha will be our guide

  • Let the wisdom of stories be the catalyst for our hearts to remember who we really are. Pir Zia and Mirza Inayat Khan will be our storytellers
  • Work with our imagination and our hands to guide us to the world of new possibilities. Stella and Subhana will be our imagination catalysts.

We will also have a special session for parents and children to come together and feel how the power of creativity can help us be ourselves. Majida will be our guide.

This weekend is for all those that are thirsty to be in spaces with people of all ages from around the world, and those of us who might not see ourselves as being creative but are willing to let our curiosity take us on the journey of wonder.

Subhana Maureen Zollinger

Subhana Maureen Zollinger studied contemporary dance in Germany and now works as a freelance performer and teacher.

In her eyes, being an artist for means to be playful and open to whatever comes as we take away our inner critic and connect to our essence. She was 6 years old, when she started going to the swiss Zenith camp with her parents, and has found it to be her yearly sanctuary ever since. At 17, she was initiated and started a deeper journey onto the Inayati sufi path. Her dream is to connect movement and creativity with inner processes to create workshops and classes, for dancers to connect more to their essence but also for everyone to let the body and soul communicate.

Ula Wyss

As a dancer, speaker and teacher, Ula Wyss loves expressing creativity through movement and her voice. She brings out the courageous self in the people who she works with, and believes that having the courage to follow your intuition is at least half the equation of reaching your dreams. Ula studied Contemporary Dance in Germany and has been speaking in front of audiences since High School, and currently lives in Malaysia.

Stella Biel

Creativity has always had a big influence in Stella’s life – singing and dancing in the garden as a kid or as a young woman, and finding ways to integrate it into work. Camp has always been a place where she could fully be herself and connect to her inner inspiration. Since she has been a child it accompanied her journey and gave her deep soul friendships. Now she’s a singer, leads seminars, studied environmental engineering and currently works as a civil engineer.
