peripatein

peripatein derives from the Greek term for “to wander, to perambulate.” The term originates from Aristotle’s school, where philosophical conversations were held while walking and wandering about.

At times it is helpful to bring movement into inner processes by being physically active. New thoughts often arise while walking, in connection with nature and the living environment, and new pathways for the processing of a crisis emerge. Something that has long been stuck or stagnant might flow and release itself. In my experience, issues are easier to talk about when wandering, rather than when sitting in a closed room.

If you wish to do so, we can spend our sessions not only in the treatment room but also outdoors, on the move, “on the road.” The hiking paths along the Isar and around the abbey are perfect for this.
