Shamanic Healing sessions
with Flo Aymana
Flo has been a shamanic practitionner for 8 years. She proposes an experience which can connect you to your unconscious mind, unblock toxic emotions, and help you find your inner healer within you. Active participation is required from the person, you engage in your own healing process. So, recommandation is to come if you really want to solve a problem that bothers you, to be open-minded, not judgmental,ready for an "experience". Flo's techniques include singing, drumming, energetic extraction, psycho-magic and what we call in Shamanism "Soul Retrieval". She practises in France and spent also 3 years in Egypt where she worked with revolutionary activists who got blinded and traumatized during the events.
Counter indications : NO intake of drugs or alcohol before the session, very important!
- 90/100 minutes sessions

Tea and games!
Because games have always been a fun way to meet people and chill, La Quadrature will have a few card games around at the tea house to play while sipping your pu-erh.
We plan on having the following on site :
Hanabi : a game for 2 to 5 players, cooperative (all the players play together to achieve the best score they can). All players know the cards of the others, but not their own. You have, though, to play your cards in a certain order, and only three mistakes are permitted. You can give clues to your partners about their hands, but they are restricted so it's all about metacommunication.
Take 6 (6 nimmt!) : formely called Category 5, this is a game for 2 players or more, where you have to play all your cards and limit as much as possible to take any back, as they will count as points. The winner is the one with the least points when someone reaches 66 points or more.
Skull & Roses / Skull : a game for 3 to 6 players, based on bluff. First, you pile a stack of cards (face down). Then, you can start a bid. Once it is started, do you raise it (based on the total number of cards on the table), or pass ? If you are the last who has not passed, try to realize the bid (flipping cards without revealing certain figures). If you can manage to realize two bids, you win the game. It is quit a common mechanism, but it has been refined to almost its purest form.
Dobble (Spot it!) : a game for 2 to 8 players. Made of 55 cards with 8 symbols on each, never twice the same, never twice the same card and never more than one common symbol in any pair of cards. Multiple types of games exist in this one, all revovlving around the fact of finding the one and only common symbol between two cards.
Timeline : a game for 2 to 8 players. Many cards representing historical events, inventions, pieces of art and such on their face, and the year it occured on their back. One after the others, players have to guess where one of their card goes in the ver growing Timeline made of the cards already played, and then check on the back if they were right. If wrong, draw a new card. The first to correctly play all of his hand wins.
Playing game is fun. Homeruling them is funnier! So what would be a game which goal is the homerule other games ? This metagame can be played with the mechanicards made by @EggDestroyer from Prismatik and realeased under the Creative Common BY-NC 4.0 licence.
Various stuff to add to the game if needed (tokens, blank cards, hourglasses...) will be there and free to use. And of course, the whole Camp is there to help you make!
Another cool project...
