Hearth at Greenhouse is a new communal safe space committed to creative-healing, learning-peace, and survival-skill-sharing. We offer three separate rooms-atmospheres.

Hearth functions under the premise of individuals utilizing the space for their creative-healing-practice while also sharing their skills and wisdom with the community. Individuals are always welcome to maintain their own practice alongside the communal-sharing-practices, when or if they do not wish take part (introvert-safe-space). After visiting Hearth at least three times, individuals may host a communal-sharing-practice.

Hearth is in its infancy. We invite you to come around, experience the atmosphere and meet other participants to truly understand our aims.

stephie∆ali∆upsidogi is the founding peace-warrior of Hearth. She will welcome you to the space and introduce you to the day’s participants and program. Her main communal-sharing-practice is the together-strong-peace-dance, a body awareness exploration focused on breath, stretching and joyful movement.

We practice-learn in the Green House > Tempelhof > Berlin, beginning February 2019, every Friday from 13:00. During this time, Green Room Theatre is an alcohol free space. We offer vegan soup* and homemade teas on a donation basis. Everyone is welcome so far as you work to respect and maintain our hearth values.

*stone soup > bring a veggie to add into our communal pot!

1.2.19 The first incarnation of Hearth was rad. It was a slow swelling wave, cooperative, communal, patient. The perfect beginning for a life-experiment-practice.

Evolution is slow, it takes time, it does not waste time, it can not be sped up without compromising design-balance-harmony.

Gravity can be felt and built.

Improvisation has 3 possible moves. 1. play with the other 2. play against the other 3. do nothing.

Inaction (a choice to not participate) employed as the action of resistance.

The individual’s voice is not respected by our current society. Accessibility to learning a language must be secured (vocal, musical, visual, technological) as simply having a voice is not enough to be listened to.

Architecture dictates our movements and molds our relationships.
