SUBCULTOURS BERLINOSCOPE #7 - LANDWEHR CANAL

I'm so happy to share with you our next Berlinscope series with Dimitra Thomaidou, a passionate performance and healing artist based in Berlin. 

Dimitra teamed up with Subcultours to offer a truly unique experience; a guided meditation at her lovely studio in Neukölln and a guided meditation on her boat in the Landwehr Canal. I joined Dimitra to float on the canal and talk about her “mindfulness on board” experience and her favorite local hideouts.

Over the last few years, Dimitra has been developing her performance and healing work under the label Art & Healing. In her sessions, Dimitra infuses drama techniques, philosophy and performance art to create a truly personal and uninhibited experience. Dimtra explained, "meditation is a lifestyle, I believe you can have fun and be a little kid while you do it."

For subcultours, Dimitra will guide three different types of meditation, including mindfulness, emotional and journey of the mind. While each practice differs in purpose, they all lead to the same place; a place where you can feel more mindful and more focused and peaceful internally.

No matter what practice you choose, Dimitra will be there to guide you and make sure you  enjoy all the holistic benefits of meditation. If you want to learn more, you can find Dimitra's subcultours experience here

Thank you, Dimitra!

Enjoy a float on the Landwehr Canal 

When I met Dimitra, it was a chilly November afternoon, but the canal was so tranquil and beautiful with the surrounding fall foliage.  If you're not up for floating or renting a boat, I highly recommend walking around the grassy banks and following the path of the canal through each of the charming neighbourhoods.

Warm or cool down at  Nathanja & Heinrich

 

Nathanja & Heinrich is one of Dimitra's favorite neighbourhood cafés. When I visited, I got a delicious cappuccino but the menu is full of unique German wines and delicious appetizers and desserts. This sweet café turns into a great evening haunt for anyone wanting a cozy atmosphere.
