Learn by doing, together, deepening our consciousness. I approach biodynamics as an endless path and process, where belief is transformed into conviction through practical results. First, facilitating the first step into biodynamics by any means I can (bd preparations, stirring machines, certification, visits, research projects, associative projects, etc.) and then creating moments of group deepening, where each task takes on a transcendent meaning and everything we do and talk makes sense.
