What we do

In our workshop Speak like Silk, we get together for two days to talk, discuss, learn, feel, laugh, … to try something new. To just be yourself. To find out how you want to communicate and discover what feels right for you.

When we communicate, we need to be flexible, too. We might feel that others are cold to us. And we might worry when things get too hot. But to flow like silk, we need to stay gentle.

We’re different from other language courses and communication workshops:

Please note that our workshops are not suitable for complete beginners. To participate, you need to be able to speak and understand the language of the workshop on at least a basic level.
