Queer Culture in Berlin @ Bed Talks Berlin

Bed Talks Berlin – The Free Thinking Festival

Last year I got invited to participate at BedTalks Berlin. I got teamed up to speak with Philip Ibrahim, the host of The Student Hotel Berlin who also founded the pinkPillow initiative together with visitBerlin, Berlin’s city marketing. Pink Pillow Collection is an alliance for the LGBTQI scene that unites hotels driven by the idea that every guest is welcome as they are. Which basically sounds like a great idea.

Did our talk change the world? Did we contribute to a more peaceful world? I have my doubts. Philip seemed like a nice guy, and so did the rest of the team of BedTalks that I met.

Did I also feel like this was more a promotion for the hotel than a fight for the cause? That as well.

I’m also one of the speakers in their video:

About BedTalks

How getting in bed will create World Peace

Why do we believe getting in bed will create World Peace? Let us explain. Inspired by the positive spirit of John Lennon’s peaceful bed-in in Amsterdam in 1969, we had this insane idea that a bed was the answer, so we kicked off our mission towards changing the world with an event called BedTalks.

The concept was simple: a bed is an intimate place where our most beautiful dreams and exciting moments happen, so what if we could use this spirit and ask a game-changing individual (young, old, local, international, doesn’t matter) to get into bed, then ask a second to get in with them?

We then invite as many other inspired souls into that bedroom as possible, cram them all in, and capture all that positive energy. One moment in time.

We then pose a simple question: share with the others how you are changing the world, but most importantly, be equally concerned about how you can help support your bed partner’s mission.

Lastly, at the end of the pillow talk, we invite the speakers to commit to something, anything that will help out the other out: a contact number, advice, or how about they kick off a new project together?

Get Your Personal Wheel of Colours

The Wheel of Colours is a traditional tool to help us understand what we need or can share in certain situations.

We are all made up out of the same colours, but they are arranged uniquely in each person – which is why we need or can give different things in different moments.

If you’d like to find out what can support YOU when starting a project, or working with other people, to successfully finish something, to heal, to spark your creativity or what your unique gift is, that you bring to the world, then the Wheel of Colours will help you to see this and yourself more clearly and show you how to use these insights in practical ways.

It will also show you how you can listen to your inner truth and that of others, what your most important lesson is in life and what challenges you might have to overcome.

Once you’ve learned what you need to learn, you can start the wheel again, this time more smoothly.

In the past, people often only got these insights and realizations towards the end of their lives – but you don’t have to wait until then.

🌈 You have the power to create your reality.

Clarity - Confidence - Connection

In the CREATRIX School we bring clarity, confidence and connection into every area of our lives - and we look at a different topic each month.

This month is all about our families, and thinking about what we want and need here. Are you close to your biological family? Why (not)? Do you have a chosen family? Would you like to create one? What matters to you when it comes to family?

It's fun, it's exciting, and it is surely also challenging, as we have to become honest with ourselves and start imagining new possibilities.

What would your ideal family situation look like? Let's find out.
