We are inviting you on a journey of direct experiencing, sensing and being, witnessing the mystery of existence reveal itself. The Dyad is a powerful meditation technique which rapidly takes us to a heightened level of mindfulness and self-awareness. In contrast to silent meditation methods practised alone, this is practised face-to-face. Through the Dyad enquiry we watch our hearts unfold, learning to trust ourselves, to listen with our whole being and to speak from a place of inner awareness. Just as in Origami, each fold presents a new facet of ourselves; another aspect of life. Individual and group processes will be alternated with periods of individual reflection and quiet contemplation in the beautiful natural surroundings of the BRC.

Sarah Dekker grew up in Ghana, Botswana, the Netherlands, Mozambique and South Africa where she engaged with people from many different cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. She found herself looking for connection and building bridges to overcome our stories of separation and steer ourselves towards a common humanity. She studied gender and conflict studies, longing to better understand identity constructs and social hierarchies and to figure out how divides between people might be deconstructed. After university her focus shifted from the academic to the experiential and spiritual, becoming more aware of our inner world and our interconnectedness with the broader web of life. She attended many workshops and trained in various modalities. Nonviolent Communication and Dyad practice have become essential components of her daily life and constitute the most transformative tools she has encountered.
