Talk by: YOAV SHAVIT.
Entry fee: donation.

Just a moment before the new year begins, join us and see how the Toltec masters of dreams and the Taoist doing-without-action observe the concept of Self-Liberation and what they offer in order to achieve it.

Self-Liberation, the process of deconditioning: acknowledging, repairing and replacing old patterns. Is that even possible? What kind of people will we be after this process of letting go? And how can we actually do this?

Toltec wisdom offers four basic practices of behavior in order to reach this self-liberation. The practices are simple and can be used by anyone. They are relevant to these days even though the Toltec culture lived a 1000 years ago in Central America. And 500 years before that in ancient China, Lao Tzu used a poetic language when writing the Tao Te Xing, offering an interesting reflection on the Toltec keys and concept of self-liberation.

When these two great philosophies meet – a path to better understanding of ourselves and our own freedom opens.

Traditional sounds from Japan infused with music from different cultures they passed through on their travels.

KURI are Katsu and Miho, two very talented multi-instrumentalists making rare concert appearance in Berlin. KURI’smusic is dedicated to the land of the mountains in Japan, where they live, as well as the landscapes they have encountered in their world travels.

Katsu’s sound journey started with an explonation into folk, rock and experimental noise music. In the early 1990’s, he started to become more interested in the resonance of ethnic instruments, and his travels around Europe and Asia taught him many things about music and sound. He came to the understanding that making music and exploring musical instruments are universal among people all ages and cultures, and he leads workshops teaching people how to make simple instruments out of bamboo and play them.

Miho’s musical history started when she was about 11 years old. She played the trumpet in a school band, and when she left, she went on to university where she continued to play in classical concerts but felt something was missing, her heart yeaned for something more, so she decided to travel to the West. She went to Ireland. and there musicians who played from the heart-music connected to the land, and that connects brings them together, and gives them meaning and joy. Katsu joined miho, and Kuri was born in Dublin.
Being in Ireland made her want to get back in touch with her own roots to make music not in a traditional way, but with a spirit generated informed by their Japanese blood and yet also infused with some of the places they visit and the music they hear along the way.
