Open Group | once a month | in German and/or English
For many years I have been dealing with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)*. I tried out all kind of things to help myself. And I only could try them when I had enough energy to do anything. Very soon I noticed that "trying" meant of lot of "doing", which often made me even more tired. So "doing" stuff was possible in a very small amount or not at all. It was a state of "being" that was healing.
I also noticed, that many people - including medical doctors - do not understand this illness and my state. No one really can imagine it and often people think in terms of some psychological problem, which only needs to be fixed and then everything will be like it was before. Or just having enough rest. But that is not how this chronical illness (and many other) works. The awareness about it is slowily growing lately due to long COVID, which has a similar long-term fatigue. For me it was important to get in contact with people who really knew what CFS means and what I was going through. And yet - I could only be in contact with people, when I had enough energy. Being in contact also takes energy.
Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is a serious, long-term illness that affects many body systems. People with ME/CFS are often not able to do their usual activities. At times, ME/CFS may confine them to bed. People with ME/CFS have severe fatigue and sleep problems. ME/CFS may get worse after people with the illness try to do as much as they want or need to do.

So without a medical support that felt good to me, I had to listen to my intuition and develop my own healing way. And my biggest healer was the forest. In the forest, in the nature, my body remembered how to be natural and started remembering its own self-healing powers. The forest was nourishing me with exactly what I needed. And it was just there, present, not wanting anything from me. It was simply giving by being there, pouring its natural medicine. It was a very slow process of recovery. But today I feel much better and I feel deep gratitude to the forest, to the nature and its healing powers, that do not ask for anything in return. We are blessed with their gifts.
Now that I have recovered well enough, I have a wish to support others who feel similar as I did. Cause I really know what a hard place it is to be. So this group is meant for those, who feel chronicly exhausted and stuck in their recovery process. It does not have to be CFS, but also long COVID, burn out or any kind of exhaustion or chronic illness. The group is meant to be a place of being understood by fellow beings in a similar state. And it is meant to ask nothing of you, really nothing! We will practice simple being in a surrounding of a forest and enjoy being taken into the heart of its healing by not needing to do anything. We will descover how the state of beingness is actually supporting our self-regulation, so it becomes a resource for any time in our life, not only in the forest.
This group is for you if you have some of these problems:
