Relating

September 2017

Relating – name it to tame it!

By Isabel Kresse

Last Sunday we celebrated DIMA´s second birthday with many people and friends. I am so happy that I could join the party and want to thank Charu and Kanika that they have created this place where people can experience in so many different ways. And thanks to all who have contributed in many different ways….read more

Relating through kindness

By Kunji Baerwald

The Dalai Lama said in one of his books that he talks to everyone in the same way, wheather he is the president oft he United States, a garbage man or a murderer. This quote stayed with me. Of course it is a great intention to behave like this. But whenever i see how people,…read more

September at DIMA

By team DIMA

September was a month filled with opportunities to practice relating, from an all men´s group filled with bonding and tribal rituals, to the heart-opening Awakening of Love, to a spectacular 2-year-DIMA-Celebration and a 3-day-intensive founder meeting. It has been a jam-packed few weeks. Have a look for yourself, here are the pictures…..   with Love, your…read more

To relate or not to relate, that is the question

By Kanika Frings

Relating, – hands down one of the most complex and challenging things about being human.   Wonderful, scary, frustrating, exhilarating and everything far and in-between. Sometimes it feels like you can’t live with or without it. It´s equally heart-wrenching and heart-filling.   There are days where i dream of living in a cave on the…read more

Intensity

#25

August 2017

On Being “All In”

By Ana Wardley

My two favourite party games provide a clue to the intensity with which I live my life. Firstly, Egg Roulette, where players take it in turns to pick an egg to smash on their foreheads where all but one is hard-boiled. Secondly, Yoghurt Risk, where players take out a strategic spoonful from a large tub…read more

Just Do It!

By Rita Sailer

I felt honored as the DIMA team asked me to contribute an article to their monthly Newsletter. I accepted straight away without even knowing what I will have to write about. To this, these will be my first words to will actually go public and hopefully be read by hundreds of readers. So it is…read more

Feeling alive

By Jamila Kresse

  Imagine you’re on a roller coaster. You are on the highest point, where it stops far, far away from the ground. In front of you it goes down. And you know exactly, that, in a few seconds, the rollercoaster goes down this way, with you on it.   I don’t know how you would…read more

Sensitivity

#24

July 2017

Revealing, Releasing and Healing

By Marc Diva Itzler

Somewhere, at some time, in early life, I came to a conclusion.   As a small child, it became apparent to me that my vulnerability, my fragility and my anxiety was a problem.  It upset people. It especially upset my father. When he saw fear in me, it enraged him. He simply could not cope…read more

Sensitive people

By Brenda Alas Delgado

I think the title for this article is very relevant for me at this time that I’m leaving Dima after staying consistently for 4 months.   Sensitivity have been the main reason why I have such a hard time to be in communities or to spend time with people. I believe to be a very…read more

July with sensitivity, at DIMA

By team DIMA

See below the photos of July 2017 at DIMA, with the Columbian shaman´s that brought their magic to our house, impressions of Roshan´s intuitive Painting group and Sujati´s massage training, all of which require great sensitivity on a physical and emotional level…  

With fear comes sensitivity

By Kanika Frings

It sure has been a sensitive month. Writing about it, exposing it, as i am feeling sensitive, feels sensitive in itself.   Sensitivity seems to have so many aspects and facets, nooks and crannies to it, that it is hard to captivate them all in a short article. There is sensitivity in physical touch or…read more

Flexibility

#23

June 2017

Of flexibility and warmth

By Paola Thieme Tripoli

I receive this last minute invitation from Dima to write about flexibility as a possibility to see where I am at with this quality in my life right now and share it with you. I realised how much flexibility I gained on my path of yoga and meditation on the past years; flexibility in ways of…read more

Opening to new experiences

By Gemma Heinen

Flexibility … what came to my mind first was a big „thank you, Brenda“ for practicing Yoga with me every day while I stayed at DIMA – it surely improved my physical flexibility.   But the longer I thought about the word, the more I realized the broad meaning of this word „flexibility“:   I…read more

The month of June at DIMA…

By team DIMA

The month of June was another eventful one, have a look for yourself….  

Flexibility or the art of letting go

By Kanika Frings

When I first arrived to Mallorca together with Charu, having this insane plan of a Centre in the countryside together, we went to a ceremony.   My intention was to find some guidance for this new path. After a rather uneventful night of tribal sounds and sage fumes, I left in the next morning, having…read more

Challenge

#22

May

DIMA is for astronauts

By Gopal

It is Challenge that brought me to the doorsteps of DIMA. Re entering communal living was my challenge, not by economic needs, but that of information, of finding out, how I mirror with others.   Questions such as:  “Who am I at this moment?” and “Who can I trust to tell?” arise when entering a…read more

Living at DIMA

By Paige Wallace

It’s 7:30 on a Monday morning. I’m sitting on the terrace, bathed in golden light and listening to the pleasant chatter of the birds. My mind is at ease save for one thought: I am thinking about what a challenge it is to live at DIMA. I say that with a great deal of sarcasm….read more

Challenges come and go

By Isabelle Vogt

Challenges come and go Some take seconds, hours, weeks, years or even longer Some are just a present or not, they can be given Some are written by oneself Some are changing through time, or occurring again and again Some are tiny, some are life changing Some are easy to handle Some are difficult …at…read more

Humour

#21

April 2017

God´s gift

By Martyn & Jyoti

I was sitting in a whirlpool this morning surrounded by sepia tinted hand painted images of half naked Grecian or perhaps Roman women exuding the graces. As I lay alone in the azure blue water, in a whirlpool that refused to whirl at all, I considered how very different the world was then as goddesses…read more

Humour!

By Anne Weber

When DIMA asked me to contribute a short text about humour for the upcoming newsletter I googled and found out that a person is considered humorous who is skillful in the use of humour, as in writing, talking, or acting. Aha. Nice.   20 Minutes later: I am sitting in front of my computer, trying…read more

When drama goes, humour comes..

By Kanika Frings

Humour is not an attribute i would ever use to describe myself with. Not because i think i don’t have a sense of humour, or that i can’t thoroughly appreciate someone else’s wit, it´s just that i always had the notion that being humorous meant being funny, and well, being funny is not exactly one…read more

Vitality

Finding Vitality at DIMA Mallorca

By Lucy Scott and Brian Williams

We came to Mallorca in mid-December 2016 to run a Transformational Breath® introductory weekend and stayed on the beautiful island until the end of January 2017. Our therapy businesses in Northern Ireland tend to go a little quiet over the Christmas and New Year period and we felt that it would be a good time…read more

Strengthening our Vitality

By Chlöe Monteiro

Coming from a still winter in Amsterdam to a vibrating spring on Mallorca. What an amazing transition!   The winter is our time of stillness and going inward. The time where we take a step back and recharge ourselves. We become like seeds under the ground. Refilling ourselves with energy, to be ready to blossom…read more

Spring at DIMA

By team DIMA

Here it is, Spring! Every year a new gust of vitality sweeps over the land and takes our breath away. Every morning new buds are cracking open revealing gentle greens and lush colours. Yesterday we watched in awe as the peacock performed his mating dance, theatrically showing off his vibrancy, wooing the female with all he has…read more

Experience

Febuary 2017

Experience

By Juliane Allen

“Experience” is a very diverse topic, it affects and influences all aspects of our lives. If you have experienced something, then you have lived it and not just read or heard about it. You have felt what it feels like, tasted or smelt it, seen it with your own eyes. Our experiences shape us, whether…read more

Experiences – Less is Better

By Komala Lyra

  So many experiences available in the market of healing arts and personal growth, spiritual initiations, adventures and other enticing possibilities… But what is really an experience that transforms and brings remembrance?   As I was invited to write something under this title, I was tuning in, opening to what might come through …  …read more

Simplicity

#18

January 2017

Growing into simplicity

By Subodhi Schweizer

When I was asked to write an article about simplicity, I immediately felt a deep ‚yes‘ inside. If I think about simplicity some images arise:  an innocent child playing and connecting with no goal or expectation.  A monk carrying water from the well, doing nothing but what is needed in this moment. In both of the…read more

Contraction & Expansion

#17

December 2016

A colorful dance

By Dervisha Schneider

„Be – don’t try to become“ – Osho   Stumbling along on this path called “my life”, all experiencing seems so ephemeral that by and by writing about it and even much talking about it seems irrelevant or futile and communication about insights about the mystery of life and “the beyond” appears even presumptuous. Who…read more

The intrinsic cycle of life

By Kanika Frings

Contraction and Expansion, the intrinsic cycle of life.   One that seems incredibly hard to surrender to for most of us. In nature it is a no-brainer, the sun rises and sets. Flowers open and close. Seasons come and go. Breath in, breath out. The heart expands and contracts in rhythmic perfection, continuously pumping life…read more

DIMA´s Volunteers, Helpers and Friends – an Invitation

By Team DIMA

The second year at DIMA is about to begin and we are still in awe when looking back on this first year. What an experience!   We began in September of 2015, at the time just three of us, with the keys to a 300 year old Finca that had been empty for almost 45…read more

DIMA in Winter

By Team DIMA

DIMA in Winter is as beautiful as ever. During our winter break we have some lovely caretakers staying that practice Yoga and Transformational breath, enjoy cozy nights by the fire and breakfast in the crisp morning sunshine. Even the colder month bring it´s own special flair to the surroundings…..we wish you Happy Holidays….:)    

Stillness

#16

November 2016

May we be still

By Jamie Festa

  As we come into winter we watch things slow down, it gets cold and we retreat more and more into ourselves. If we observe nature we see animals doing the same as they hibernate and go inside.   DIMA, as well, closes its doors and becomes still for the winter, giving space for the…read more

Meditation

#15

October 2016

Meditation is remembrance

By Philippe Nirav

For almost 30 years MEDITATION has certainly been the one word running continuously through my daily life. Combined I must have spent a few years “in meditation”. Satori groups, meditation retreats, 10 days Vipassana courses, 5 and 7 weeks retreats in complete silence and isolation, and the daily routine of at least 3 hours of…read more

Meditation and more…

By Team DIMA

As the season of 2016 is slowly coming to an end, DIMA is quieting down and together with the nature that surrounds it, progressively turning “in”.   I find as the season gradually changes, the sun sets earlier, leaving silent twilight in its wake, it is as if the whole of existence is calming. The…read more

Instinct

September 2016

Instinct is all there is

By Philippe Nirav

It has been a rich creative day and the sun is setting. The phone rings and I am being asked if I could write about “Instinct “. Short notice sorry. “What? Instinct? Now? …Oh, okay, YES! “ I have never thought about Instinct. It is not a word I use much and I have no…read more

Connection

#13

August 2016

Dance Nourishes Intuition

By Komala Lyra

In-tuition ~ learning from the inside… Usually learning is associated with new information, something that comes from the outside to add content or understanding to a significant theme. What has been conveyed down the ages as education requires effort, concentration, memory, external focus, and the idea of increasing data, which will then need to be…read more

Only Connect!

By Tobias Oliver

Life without connection is just a random collection of dots. It is only by joining the dots, by connecting, that we can reveal the full picture, and find both meaning and purpose. This connection can take many forms – a deep bond to nature, a profound stirring to a work of art, the special relationship to…read more

JOY

#12

July 2016

What is joy? – From the darkness cometh the light

By Anna Wardley

  It’s hard to escape the comical irony that I was asked to write this article about joy on the very day I entered one of the darkest, most painful and frightening experiences of my life – an episode which sent me to a hell of my own creation, where for a while I lost…read more

Joy – an intrinsic quality of everything alive

By Aruna Jacobi

Osho says: “Joy is the spiritual dimension of happiness, in which one begins to understand one’s intrinsic value and place in the universe”   Joy is everywhere when I’m at home in myself.  When Joy rises within, everything becomes intimately connected. There is no boundary between myself and the Other, no separation between myself and…read more

DEVOTION

#11

June 2016

From longing to devotion

By Martyn Rule

The experience of being alive can at times be very fragile and humbling. Being all too human is a journey of both becoming and dissolving, both, whilst we are here.   I´m reminded of the Rumi poem: Does Sunset sometimes look like the sun is coming up Do you know what a faithful love is…read more

Devotion has many forms

By team DIMA

Devotion comes in different forms and ways. This month at DIMA we have seen it shine through in the work invested in running this place, in the food that is cooked, in the music made from the heart, in the love for detail. We have experienced it at another wonderful Meditation Festival, abundantly held by Chetana. We have…read more

PLAYFULNESS

#10

May 2016

Playfulness! Seriousness is scary and boring

By Astiko Schugt

Playfulness! Playfulness, I love this word! It evokes, joy, freedom, innocence, creativity, presence,lightness. When I was a child the magic moment was when I was told to go out and play. That meant for me freedom, unsupervised time to allow things to happen, to create, move, build, imitate,relate whatever. As I go deeper into it…read more

Commited to our mission

By DIMA

We have BIG News at DIMA.   If you strip away all the things we came into this project with – dreams, visions, passion, fear, friendship, trust, naivety, foolhardiness, guidance, ignorance, love, and many many more attributes, among the ´hard core´, if not at the core itself, was and still is, unwaveringly – commitment. Commitment…read more

Commitment to what and who?

By Talib & Shubhaa Fisher

What does commitment in relationship mean to you? What is the difference between commitment and compromise in your intimate relating? These are questions we have asked ourselves many, many times in our lives and relationship together….it is an ongoing inquiry for us and something we find important and significant on a path of Conscious Relating….read more

Motivation

March 2016

Self-Motivation through the body

By Sarah Haden

Being motivated about what we do is easier when our actions feel important to us and align with our values. We can’t bluff motivation: when our heart’s not in it, our body tells us loud and clear.   “The body is a map of the mind; the mind is a map of the body”  Hugh…read more

Courage, Compassion, Consistency

By Sarjan Surya

Focus, what a Word!!! And such an important one these days!!   I would like to thank the DIMA team for inviting me to focus on this moment of writing and feeling.   This twenty first century that we are living in, it’s such and important time, the era of information. So many things happening…read more

Focus – I call it ‘being present’

By Chetana

Focus   ‘Focus’ is not a word which I use often in my vocabulary. Connecting with it now in order to put into writing what it means to me, I noticed, that I don’t really like its vibration. It feels pretty serious, effortful, boring, unflexible and single-pointed. Very much to do with head, mind and…read more

VISION

January 2016

Sustaining a vision

By Raj Jiwan

To keep a vision and sustain it is very difficult, that is the reason why I practice Kundalini yoga.   Visions are very unpredictable, they often come in different forms such as a sensation, a déjà vu, an idea, a thought, an image, or a word.  As veiled and unpredictable as they may be, they…read more

Vision by definition

By Charu Hermsdorf

“Vision” appears to be a somewhat broad and irritable subject for many, so I would like to begin by looking at the definition of the word vision.   Vision is the act of sensing with the eye. It is also the power of anticipating that which may come to be. A vision is an experience,…read more

Vision or no vision, that is the question

By Kanika Frings

Yesterday I asked two close friends of ours, Avesh and Varsha, if they would be willing to make a little clip for DIMA with this months topic “VISION”. As they are dear, supportive and inspiring new friends for me in the process of DIMA´s creation, I thought they would be the perfect guests to speak…read more

Magic moments at DIMA

By Team DIMA and friends

Magic is everywhere

By Jamie Festa and Deena Dadachanji

Magic is the reminder of the essence and love in everything. It is the little sparkly bit that shows up. The magic begins in noticing and continues in our ability to create more of it. Recognising it allows us to play with it and then everything becomes magical. Magic is a twinkle. Magic is invoked….read more

Approaching with an open heart

By Jamie Festa

A month ago, on October 24, I came to DIMA for the amazing Alchemy of Touch Myofascial Chi Release Massage Course. Here, I would celebrate the mystery of the gift of touch, together with a wonderful group of people. However, somehow I missed the fact that it was to be held at an amazing conscious community…read more

The DIMA effect

By Deena Dadachanji

I’ve been asked to write something about DIMA and the theme of ‘celebration’. I don’t know that this exactly relates to celebration in the mainstream sense of the word, but I certainly feel that a ‘celebration of life’ has been the essence of my whole experience here.   When I arrived at DIMA, I was…read more

Creativity

October 2015

The courage to show up

By Vira Drotbohm

Do you know doubts? Do you know indeciseveness? Have you had moments where you are standing on a junction and don’t know to walk right or left. So you sit down, right there, in the middle of a big question mark, afraid to make the wrong move, gaped out – waiting for the big answer to come….read more

Watching the grass grow

By Kanika Frings

What is creativity? Silence… Again, what is creativity? Nothing… I don´t really know. That is the honest answer.   I used to experience creativity as a difficult, uncomfortable, birth-giving like process. There was a lot of fear of failure, pre-conceived ideas and comparison around it. In short, creating anything was an arduous business for me. And…read more

Patience

September 2015

Growth needs Patience


By Deva Prem A. Kreidler

What is patience? Is it an emotion?
If I ask you: ”what do you feel?” would you say: “Oh, I feel patient!”?
 Is it a series of body sensations? Is it a thought? 
Is it a moralistic shouldism? You should be patient! 
Is it one of the high virtues like honesty, faithfulness, truth, uprightness….patience?
 Is it…read more

Sowing Seeds

By Charu Hermsdorf

For most of us patience is challenging and there are multiple opportunities for training in every humans daily life. I observe lack of patience in myself and others mainly while driving, queuing up or when suffering from a slow WIFI connection. Those moments when you are so very much in the now, going somewhere, doing…read more

Fresh Beginnings

August 2015

Wow, Mallorca… really? Really!

By Rafia Morgan

Quite some years ago I used to lead a group called Fresh Beginnings. It was designed for people that wanted to have a deep look over 14 days at their early life issues in order to confront the status quo of their personality imprints and beliefs so they could drop the baggage habitually carried from…read more

The journey to DIMA
