Event Details

Hello dear friends,
Due to COVID 19 pandemic, we offer a full refund in case the event doesn’t happen due to quarantine restrictions or COVID19 related troubles/ health issues.

For fourth year in a row, we offer you and ourselves to detach from the urban environment, from the erratic everyday life, from the usual problems, with the intention to rediscover ourselves. Тo gives ourselves time and safe space, to explore the depths of the conscious and subconscious, to spin together in a whirlwind of emotions and experiences.
Our beloved Ziya Azazi – choreographer, artist, dancer, teacher, and whirling dervish in progress is coming again to Apriltsi, to conduct a 4 days DIP /dervish in progress/workshop and retreat from 26.08.2021.
DIP Workshops provide the participants with an opportunity to get to know their bodies, their boundaries, their fears, in short, themselves. An opportunity to step into your inner universe.
It aims enhancement of awareness through blending the traditional methods with the contemporary ones and transferring it to daily life.
Whirling is by itself not the main objective but is used as a tool to achieve this exploration.
Whirling helps the participants to unfold their true energy by shaking their physical and mental states that they have so far been accustomed to.
We offer you a DIP retreat for a fuller possibility to detach yourself from the everyday environment, for a fully holistic experience and the possibility to rediscover yourself. In the heart of the Balkan Mountains, at the skirts of peak Botev has situated the small, lovely village of Apriltsi, which will be our home during the retreat.
In the midst of wonderful nature, with delicious vegetarian food, morning yoga practices, creative activities, and four days of DIP workshop with the remarkable Ziya Azazi, we want to spin some energy and rediscover the primal life force. Through diving in the DIP practice, we aim to balance ourselves, unlock multilayered self-knowledge, and transfer it in all areas of life.
DIP workshops aim to expose the real potential of body, mind, and heart for greater understanding. A retreat for individuals to grasp personal, local, global, and even maybe universal subjects with the help of various velocities, frequencies, and intensities experienced in spinning and sound-works.
