Повесть о Ходже Насреддине

Очень мне понравилась книга Леонида Соловьева “Повесть о Ходже Насреддине: Возмутитель спокойствия”. Еще больше захотелось съездить попутешествовать по Узбекистану. Самарканд уже очень давно будоражил воображение. После просмотра фильма The Desert of Forbidden Art, очень хочется попасть в музей в Нукусе. И теперь, после прочтения книги, очень хочется посетить Бухару…

Но торопливость, как известно, есть свойство дьявола, и, кроме того, всем памятны стихи мудрейшего шейха Саади Ширазского: “Только терпеливый закончит дело, торопливый же упадет”. Ходжа Насреддин свернул ковер нетерпения и уложил его в сундук ожидания.

Creative Rendezvous: Discovering Kandinsky through Live Music |March 13, 2019

This spring I’m inviting you to revitalize yourself in a creative and artistic way.

Join this unique Creative Rendezvous session on March 13, where we will be discovering the fascinating world of Wassily Kandinsky and creating your own masterpiece accompanied by live music. No previous experience in arts is needed.

Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian painter, graphic artist and art theorist. It would not be an underestimated statement to call him the Father of abstract modern art. During the workshop we will concentrate on a few aspects of his creative process. Besides his work in visual arts, he had a passion for music, poetry and theater. He himself played the piano and the cello, wrote verses and scripts.

We will look into some of his work where he connected visual and audio modes, we will discuss the process of seeing sounds, the synesthesia. We will talk about his work with Schoenberg. We will see some bits of the Kandinsky’s performance Pictures at an Exhibition – a music piece by Mussorgsky, which was created under a strong impression of the Viktor Hartmann’s exhibition.

This constant dialogue between the different artistic domains is what interests me the most. This inner connection and cross-inspiration. That is what I would like to explore more during the workshop. As the culmination of this, we will touch upon Kandinsky’s Synthesis of Arts and performance The Yellow Sound.

After this introduction I will propose a few exercises where we will be interpreting different sounds and music using our own impressions, envisioned colors and forms.

This is going to be a unique experience, since for this session I’m collaborating with Alex Choub from Bassworks, who will perform live for us during the workshop. Alex is a composer, teacher, producer and performing musician with 6-string bass ‘touch style’ technique.

Materials:

I will provide the following materials, but you are welcome to bring your own as well:

  • white paper
  • colored paper
  • pastels / crayons
  • scissors
  • glue

Tea, coffee and light snacks are offered during the workshop.

We are really looking forward to bring in the music and colors together with you in some kind of unity and boosting your creative energy this spring!

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, DIS | Spring 2019

Once again it was a great pleasure to welcome students from the Positive Psychology spring semester course at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia to take part in my  “Where is my Time” workshop as a field study.

We have explored various aspects of the subjective time experience, individual differences in time perspective and how to apply in practice our research results about how to achieve the balanced time perspective and what are the actual benefits of having this particular time perspective.

If you’re interested to run this workshop at your workplace or interested to take the full course – feel free to get in touch!

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | PSYCHOLOGY OF TIME COURSEs, DIS | SPRING 2019

This Spring semester of 2019 I was taken by surprise with two sections of my course “Psychology of Time” that I’m teaching at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia. Overall I have 50 students, who are interested in the subject matter! It’s super exciting that students find this topic interesting and decide to take the course! “Where is My Time” workshop becomes an integral part of the course, when students discover their temporal profiles using various instruments and techniques. My current studio space is not that large to host groups of 23 and 27 students, but we did our best to fit in and I think we had good time while working on the “My Time Collage”.

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, DIS | Fall 2018

Right after my birthday, I was running the my “Where is my Time” workshop as a field study for the Positive Psychology fall semester course at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia.

It is always very interesting what perspectives the students bring with them to this workshop. We talked about my experiences when working with people with various temporal perspectives and applying our research results about how to achieve the balanced time perspective.

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | Positive PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, DIS | Summer 2018

Exciting summer day it was today – I was invited to run my “Where is my Time” workshop as a field study for the Positive Psychology summer course at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia. We had a great time exploring own temporal profile, collaging and then reflecting on it, discussing how it can be linked to the state of flow, concept of flourishing, but also what is a balanced time perspective and how to achieve it with simple exercises and techniques.

Where is My Time workshop for Karriere Coach, Aarhus |April 2018

Another super exciting adventure during the Danish Research Festival was to be invited to Aarhus. I was invited there with my “Where is My Time” workshop by the Karriere Coach, a consulting company that works with helping people to figure out possible career and competence developments.

It was a nice workshop for both the coaches and participants of their various development programs.

We had very nice discussions after the workshop both with the coaches, diving more deeply into the theories behind the workshop: the time perspective approach and some contradictions within positive psychology.

If you’re interested to run this workshop at your workplace or interested to take the full course – feel free to get in touch!

Another participant has also took me a bit around Aarhus to see some hidden treasures of the city. It was a great experience overall!
