Bloom Trieste Hosts: Teatrino Ancestrale, April-August 2017

Bloom Trieste presenta >>

TEATRINO ANCESTRALE

Mercoledì 19 Aprile 2017 
ore 18:00 presso Accademia di Maestria
in Via della Geppa n°2, Trieste

Il Teatrino Ancestrale nasce dall’idea di Anna e Francesco allo scopo di promuovere, tramite una rete di operatori di diverse specializzazioni, la ricerca del Sè per una miglior consapevolezza della posizione e delle potenzialità individuali al servizio della società in cui viviamo.

Lo scopo è mostrare come attività differenti in sinergia possano aiutarsi reciprocamente nel far scoprire, tramite approcci semplici e giocosi (da qui la scelta del termine “Teatrino”), la propria natura profonda, antica e consapevole (“Ancestrale”).
Ogni attività verrà facilitata da due operatori di diversa specializzazione, due sabati al mese, da Maggio ad Agosto, dalle 17:30 alle 20:00, nella suggestiva cornice carsica del villaggio di Povir (15 minuti dal confine di Fernetti) con la possibilità di operare sia all’aperto, che in caso di maltempo, al chiuso.
