we have to grow from inside out.

On the way to a dynamic balance of body, mind and soul – TCI and Yoga 

Your head says “Yes!”, your instinct says “No!” What now?
We are living in a world in which our head and brain have the biggest say and shape our paths, even though our soul and gut feeling want to go somewhere else – we lose contact to our body and the signals it sends. That can make us tired or leave us without energy. Because wellness includes body, soul and mind!

This interactive workshop will focus on our psycho-biological being and the observance of the signals our body sends. This is a central aspect of TCI and also deeply rooted in Yoga. Goal of this workshop is to get to know TCI, a concept of humanistic psychology* together with Yoga asanas (body postures), pranayamas (regulation of breath)* and meditation.We want to create more awareness for our physicalness in order to improve our integral wellness (physically, mentally and spiritually).  

“The human being is a psycho-biological entity”, Ruth C. Cohn says, founder of TCI. We want to follow this thought with exercises from Yoga and Indian rituals. Part of this is the engagement with mantras (chants), chakras (centers of energy) and mudras (hand gestures).* The yoga exercises will be adapted according to the experiences and capabilities of the participants.

Our yoga mats will be our base and starting point from where we will start our journey with TCI and Yoga. Destinations on our journey will be:

    • The “triangle in the circle” of TCI, that unites and connects the four aspects of individual, group, theme and environment.
    • Namaste – the common Indian greeting, which is a bow in front of the divine light in the other person.
    • “Be your own chairperson.” A postulate of Ruth C. Cohn, meaning: Take responsibility for your own actions, lead yourself.
    • Elements from Yoga and its surroundings, the Bhagavad Gita, Indian philosophy and mythology
    • The TCI concept of worldwide connections (Globe) will be brought into relation to the ancient Indian principle of Vasudeva Kutumbakam – the world is one family.
    • Intercultural encounter between Eastern and Western cultures and traditions – and people.

The living learning and the wisdom of TCI, as it encompasses Yoga and Indian philosophy, will help us to awaken and balance our prana ( Sanskrit: life energy), to nourish the tree of our psycho-biological wellbeing and wholeness.

Target Group:
Everyone interested in intercultural enrichment and psychobiological development.
Newcomers to TCI and also to Yoga are most welcome.

*TCI / Theme Centered Interaction, is a concept of humanistic psychology, founded by Ruth C. Cohn. See

*Pranayama is the conscious awareness of breath, the life force that both energises and relaxes the body. The Sanskrit term Prana means energy, life force.

*Mantras are chants, or sounds or vibrations that have a desired effect such as healing, transformation, or self-awareness to specific areas of your body and/or life.

*Chakras are energy centres in the body.

*Yoga mudras are symbolic gestures performed with the hand and fingers. They facilitate the flow of energy and enhance one's journey within.

This workshop is a cooperation between the Department for Social Responsibility of the Protestant church district Gelsenkirchen and Wattenscheid and the Protestant Women’s Auxiliary in Westphalia.
