“We are all born originals – why is it so many of us die copies?” (Edward Young)

Socialization is a natural process of our life – it happens in human beings as well as in animals. Human beings are a conditioned product of their environment. Why does this imprinting so often have to do with much repression of our native essence and creates guilt, shame, fear and pain?

This question has been occupying Saskia’s thinking for years. To overcome conditioning and come back to the core of our true nature is the motivation of her work.

 

For 10 years Saskia has lived and worked as management consultant in Berlin; in this context she focuses primarily on process shaping and the interaction between employees.

This focus on human interaction began to develop early on in her life, as a curiosity and interest in nutrition, social psychology and alternative forms of cohabitation.

By going through various different relationship experiences she keeps refining her views and desires for a life in and a belonging to a community built on values and ideas that go beyond traditional definitions usually comprised of gender, age, sexual bias or social role.

Part of her work is to create experimental spaces in which the participants can find themselves and are able to meet and discover each other in a state of openness. Conditioning surfaces quickly when there is direct physical contact.

Perception, exploration and the playful acting out of instincts, drives and metaphysical connections always create new experiences and insights and allow for conditioning to be dropped and be replaced by more authentic thoughts and behaviours.

Saskia lives in and works together with a group of people who make these themes an important principle of their fellowship.
