The modes are otherwise states, moods, emotions. The subject of the workshop is the ability to enter and leave modes easily.

There are plenty of modes, here are examples: anger mode, happiness mode, observation mode, dog on the trail of a bitch mode, monopoly for true mode, searching mode, finding mode, “I am a mirror of everything” mode, gazing at stars mode, disgust mode.

Therefore, there can be wide modes, allowing some freedom of interpretation in operation, and narrow modes, characterizing the action more precisely.

Why is it worth to practice techniques of entering and leaving modes? Just to make it easier to overcome persistent and unwanted emotional states. In order to increase the ease of getting a distance to yourself. This is also to gain greater efficiency in controlling our actions.

The base for leaving negative states and for switching from mode to mode is a state called neutrality or readiness. We devote a significant part of the workshop to the techniques of reaching this state. These are mainly physical activities, exercises for unlocking.

Although the mode workshops are workshops with a serious aim, the work is often about abandoning being serious in the sense of treating yourself too seriously. That is why we often use absurd, laughter, that’s why we do things out of place.

During the workshops, we try to do things, which would seem too difficult for us, too stupid, too foreign. However, if things are treated as if they were obvious, they often become obvious. The atmosphere of the mode workshop favors shifting your limitations.


Who are these workshops for?

The workshop will be useful for all those who want to increase the distance to their selves.

They are addressed to people over 16 years of age, while the average age at our workshops is usually around 30 years.
