We listen 5–9 July to what the artists, scientists, spiritual leaders and economists have stated in the Stedelijk Museum. We cook and eat fresh foods that give a more subtle consciousness. The rhythm of the days is strict. We start at 7 in the morning and keep going until 8 at night. We sit silently together mornings and evenings but speak our mind. We learn all about sattvic food that is pure, essential, natural, vital and true. Yet, at any time this is what may happen:
A big, loud plane flies over our heads, ready to land on Schiphol Airport. That is when we can test our concentration, our ability to give all mental energy to the object under examination and remain untouched. Did you know that most psychological problems arise from lack of attention in which we let some outside force rule us. This is called the Sixth Limb of Yoga.
So Tomorrow’s Language is about yoga too and about meditation and the view of emptiness. It is all there. We concentrate on: “We live in language. Language is not just a tool but is the domain which makes us human. It is not that we learn language, it is more that language learns us. Man is made by language,” as neuroscientist Francisco Varela said in the 1990.
We learn tomorrow’s words. Towards the end of each day, every participant shares the words and insights picked up that day by listening to the panelists. At the very end of our five days on Sunday 9 July, 5 PM, during a festive meeting, each of you brings your selection of words and insights to an audience of specially invited guests, eager to hear the language that you find fits our future. “Language is the medium in which we all exist,” Francisco Varela claims. It is good to investigate, cultivate and learn to speak tomorrow’s language. Only new words can bring a new life, a new society, ‘a new social sculpture’ as Joseph Beuys would call it.
So far we suggested to follow the whole Five Day Intensive, but many requested to come for one or two days only. Find the day(s) you would like to attend in this display. Choose Panel 1, or Panel 2, 3, 4 or 5. All artists are contemporary, the scientists are of the Chaotic Worldview, the spiritual leaders are future geared, all economists support the ‘compassionate economy’.
The hard-core participants who will be there for all five days are: Eloise Sweetman, Jason Hendrik Hansma, Marieke Ploeg, Constanze Schreiber, Cadine Navarro, Vika Ushkanova and Maria Gil Ulldemolins. Cathalijne Smulders and Masha Ru join a day. Secure your place.
