Woods Seasons is an experiment of get-togethers once every season that we did with our friends at REH. As all our Woods events, it is a space dedicated to collaborative creativity and sustainable living, to the meeting and exchange between different worlds, through which new pathways may unfold, a cultural exploration salon for makers and change-makers, for seekers and life-long learners, for trailblazer and people who are interested in making a difference in re-integration of our world in a broader sense.  Once every season people from different walks of life came together and shared some insights into their work and what drives them to do what they do. These interdisciplinary encounters are a process of discovering a golden thread that weaves people and ideas together. Its aim is to be a catalyst to inspire living connections across and beyond disciplines, to explore shared concerns and questions of how we want to live and create sustainable future. Wisdom is born in an encounter and synthesis. Through meeting the others we reconnect to something of value: a shared purpose, a forgotten wish, a spirit of adventure, or a new attention to life around. We meet around questions of how we want to live in the future in the four main areas: how we work, how we learn, how we relate and how we create. The practice of embodiment, as well as the arts and creativity in a broader sense are an integral part of this event. Our backgrounds, professions, fields of interests shape our perspectives on common life experiences, so we come together to share them, to see a bigger picture. Below you will find an online library of impressions and some of the video contributions to Woods Seasons.
