    The live session is guided by Erik and consists of the following parts:

    • Guided meditation.
    • Reflection on the exercises and the theme of the week.
    • Possibility of exchange, questions and answers, directly or using the chat function (depending on the number of participants).
    • Room for an interpersonal practice of about 15-20 minutes together with other participants. For this exercise we use so-called break-out rooms. Break-out rooms are digital subgroups that allow you to temporarily split up into small groups of 3-4 participants. After the interpersonal exercise in breakout rooms, there is the opportunity to share experiences in a plenary session.
