“Ecstatic Expression of Oneness in Spoken Word, Visual Art and Dance”
This will be a colorful presentation on the creative adventure I have embarked on since I have been a child… looking back into my childhood, some things start to make sense now, that I had no idea about before. So there will be visual materials, short films, some revelatory and some funny stories from my life and also some demonstration of the profound passion that moves me. The expression of Oneness instead of separation. On the left you see one of my photo montages with one of my poems integrated into the image.

Creative self-enquiry… spontaneous poetry… free movement… indivisible oneness… deep stillness… profound connection… playful humour… conscious comedy
Come and dive with us into the ordinary extraordinariness and extraordinary ordinariness of being alive with an open heart…
play, connect, feel, be, laugh, explore, intuit and most of all be yourself… possibly in ways you have not known before.
At heart we are all one, literally; this is not just a conceptual idea. The reality of oneness can be made tangible in creative expression in completely universal ways. You can come from any path of life and be truly met at heart. The language of the heart is completely universal.
There is a potential in being creative that is more blissful and beautiful than we can imagine. I have spent many years researching the powerful effects of expressing sacred word through movement. It was a very potent process that taught me so much and brought so much beauty to my life that now I feel very moved to pass on what I have discovered.
At the beginning of the event I will offer a spontaneous demonstration to show an example of how movement and word can be aligned to being an expression of the heart. I then will facilitate a work-/playshop, intuitively guiding you to find your own and unique creative voice of beauty, profundity and oneness. There is absolutely no previous experience required.
I formally completed studies at Brighton University, where I was very honored to achieve a 1st class degree in Performance and Visual Art. The wonderful time at University has profoundly supported me in developing the tools I needed for this creative work I am doing today.
DETAILS OF THE EVENT:
The event is in two parts. You can choose to just attend the Demonstration at 2pm (tickets are £10) which includes a period of silence and questions and answers and an opportunity to meet others during the tea break. The first two hours of the event allow for important processes supporting the work/-playshop afterwards. The whole event from 2pm to 6pm costs £25 in total. You will need to buy a ticket up to 48 hours prior to the event. There will be no tickets sold at the door on the day. This policy is now in place, because it didn’t serve the process to leave things open to people just turning up on the day. The type of work we engage in is in-depth and requires from me to be 100% present with you and for you. In return I require a genuine commitment to either the first two or the whole four hours of this process from you.
Questions & Answers: 3-3:30pm
(“Timings are approximate and can vary”)
Tea Break – 3:30-4pm

THE INDIVISIBLE BEAUTY OF THE ONE HEART – A HAPPENING
This is neither just a live performance, or a retreat, or a meditation or a satsang, or a workshop or a playshop or whatever you want to call it…. as it doesn’t fit into any of these genres… but has elements of any of the above….so let’s call this a Happening…. a process that can evolve as we go along, is playful, profound, humorous, self-reflective, creative, still, and most of all happy… happy beyond reason.
My role is primarily to hold the space for you to explore the deepest into the reality of non-separation you want to go. There will be moments of witnessing and moments for silence, spaces for questions and spaces for creative explorations – in your own unique way. Sometimes I may feel moved to offer a spontaneously emerging danced poem in the context of what has arisen in the room.
It will be a playful, humorous, loving, highly alive, intimate and intuitive process, sometimes challenging may be, possibly surprising, but anything that comes up along the way will be warmly embraced without judgement.
The fee for this happening is £40, you can pay at the door, but please message me and reserve a space if you really intend to come as it is helpful to know about numbers.
If you can not afford £40 you are welcome to pay a smaller fee. Please message if that’s the case, or with any questions you may have.
Bring your favorite teabags and may be a snack for the break.
April 2nd 10am-2pm
THE INDIVISIBLE BEAUTY OF THE HEART – A HAPPENING
Stoke Bishop Village Hall, Stoke Bishop Bristol BS9 1EX
Inspired by a recent living room event this morning will start with a spontaneously evolving dance-poetry offering which I will let emerge in response to you… you can witness, share what you feel about what you are seeing and ask questions or bring forward themes, before we begin to create together.
Somehow this event doesn’t fit into any classic genres… partly it is performance, partly workshop, retreat, satsang… I will allow the morning to develop by what is brought into the space. The best name to give it is probably ‘A Happening’.
Also you really are absolutely free to donate as little or much as you can or want to contribute to this event.

APRIL 2016: Site Festival Stroud:
The Cycle of Life or The Light Shines Ceaselessly
A Live Performance by Eva Millauer (digital photo montages, poetry, dance and recitation) and Lindsay Treen (intuitive singing and instrumental sounds playing singing bowls, monochord, xylophone, ocean drum and other instruments)
… a contemplative and invocatory celebration of human experience through immersive digital photo montages, spoken word/poetry, dance, movement, stillness and beautiful sounds, musical elements and a wonderful singing voice. There is no story to hold onto, but the sense of the totality of existence. There is no separate point of view to be entertained, but the focus is on the lesson of love as a primary, mysterious purpose of existence. It is a meditation fully engaging all senses, and becomes most powerful in response to whoever wishes to meet in the beauty beyond all forms and identity…
Lindsay and I met through IDEA (the International Directory Evolutionary artists, which she founded), and we have greatly enjoyed working with each other on this collaboration. You are invited after the performance (which will last approx 1hour) to share your experience of (and response to) this occasion and you are welcome to ask questions.
