been proven, but to certain level can be sensed by listening to it. We plan to introduse
theoretical knoldedge about those effect while having them to experience different sounds
in order to compare the sensation. This will also we carried out throughout the day with the
finishing touch of Gong Bathing.

PM

Primary preparations of the Healthy Rave

Deciding on the programme of the event, what exact preparations are needed and
allocation of responsibilities.

Contact improvisation workshop

Music cannot be separated from dancing and contact improvisation, which is a dance
technique in which points of physical contact provide the starting point for exploration
through movement improvisation, should connect those two things (music and dance) in a
way which is most relavant to our main topic of exchange.

Evaluation of the day ; Bathing in the sound of gongs

Depending on posiblities, there will be either few hour or all night bathing in the sound of
gongs which is said to have a similar deep relaxation effect as meditation

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

All workshops It is important to note that vast majority (if not all) of the activities will be conducted by the participants themselves with leaders only assisting whfor participants to have
and discussions
enough time to properly prepare.

Group
workshops

The idea is to have each partner group to prepare at least one person to be able to prepare a healthy meal (best case scenario, it would be related to their national
cuisine) and two other people to be able to teach a few of their national dances. Throughout the days 3-8, there will be time delegated for these prepared people to
teach the rest of the group they will be allocated to and then the whole group will lead an event where they will show it to the rest of the participants. Everyday different
group will make a healthy meal for everyone to try and and one other group is going to lead the dances.

Morning
exercises

Every morning (starting the day 2 and up till the end of the programe) will start with morning excercises, yoga, meditation. In order to keep diversity and share
knowlegde, each prepared group will have an opportunity to lead those excercises in their own way.
