Teambonding
The four elements

Team bonding 'The 4 elements'

Fire, air, water and earth

The teambonding package “The 4 Elements” is based on the active experience of the four elements: fire, air, water and earth. The objective of this program is that through the lived experience one will experience, feel and integrate the different elements, in their essence. Through active experience, we come to recognize that each primal element embodies a specific primordial force that is part of the manifestation process. We become aware that each element, with its specific properties, is a building foundation in the realization of goals.

The Teambonding package “The four elements” can be used in different ways depending on the intended participation objective. It can be booked as a one-day experience program but customization is also possible. Elaisa Inspiration Centre also offers packages in which the focus is on the experience and interaction of one specific element.  In this way both one-day and multi-day packages can be put together in which each element is highlighted and experienced separately.

The “4 elements” team bonding package :

  • Stimulates creative potential.
  • Activates decisive manifestation.
  • promotes leadership qualities.
  • Supports awareness processes.
  • broader understanding.
  • helps us become stronger, more aware, more creative and more insightful.

To efficiently generate a return of investment, it is appropriate to work from a predefined objective. In this way, the participating team members can harness the power and essence of the elements during their experience to shape the realization of the objective.

Arrival

The experience of the team bonding “4 elements package” already starts at the Elaisa parking lot. An electric shuttle bus brings each participant, after a short ride amidst nature, to the imposing entrance of the Elaisa Inspiration Center. The symmetrical building of Elaisa is built according to the Universal Laws in the image of the Egyptian temples. At the reception desk the group is welcomed by one of our staff members who then accompanies all of them to the Avalon room.

Avalon

The Avalon space is the heart of the Elaisa Inspiration Center. It is built with the invitation to connect. The design is inspired on the concept of the “Round Table of Avalon”. Here we invite every participant to take a seat. After the welcoming word, some practical explanations and the presentation “Manifestation and the four elements” the active part starts with the experience of the four elements.

Fire Element

Temazcal, approx. 120 min.

After each has changed clothes, the group is invited to experience the essence of teambonding through the Temazcal fire ceremony. The Temazcal is a traditional Mexican sweat lodge that promotes well-being. Elaisa is the only company in the Benelux that offers this unforgettable and profound experience.

The fire ceremony experience consists of 3 parts:

  • Opening ritual
    In this ritual we go back to the moment when man, as an individual, connects with a group. Here we make the first preparations for the Temazcal. Together, we build a ceremonial fire in which, by placing lava stones in the fire, we place our intention as a team. A campfire offers many practical benefits for group connection. It promotes cooperation.
  • Temazcal
    Once the lava rocks are red-hot, they are brought into the sweat lodge. In the Temazcal one dwells in complete darkness to be able to turn completely in yourself. By gradually increasing the heat in combination with the sounds of various primal instruments and guided visualization something magical happens. You are no longer able to think but only to feel. To feel what really lives in you. You discover, so to say, your own potential. This experience can help to break through boundaries, overcome fears, unlock emotions and let go of beliefs. Attending a Temazcal is a personal process that begins with somatic balance and culminates in transformation.
  • Cooling off
    After this inner experience, we take you to cool off in our natural lake. We conclude this unique, team-bonding experience back around the fire.

Lunch

60 min

After the Temazcal, we offer a well-deserved healthy lunch at the Elaisa Wellness Restaurant. The breathtaking expansive view of the lake and terrils, helps us to relax.

Air Element

Sound Ceremony, approx. 60 min.

After the initial introduction to the fire element, we take the participants into the world of sound and vibration. In the special designed Elaisa Sound Room, the is immersed in the deeply relaxing realms of sound. The team takes their seats on the provided couches where they relax, enjoying a deeply melodic concert of harmonizing sounds and songs. The sounds of the various instruments contribute to experience deep tranquility. The body enters in a meditative state where one can feel the vibration all the way into the body. This helps to relax completely.

Water Element

Icebatch & Breathwork, approx. 60 min.

Through breathing techniques, meditation and cold therapy we become stronger and healthier. Through the interaction of breathing, meditation and training with the cold, we create a strong connection between the body and our mind. As a result, we learn how to cope with different levels of stress. This breathing exercise affects the autonomic nervous system, which is responsible for the unconscious control through which one is able to perform. For a short time, the Ph value of the blood rises minimally. This means an alkaline environment in the blood that reduces acidification of the body. A very effective tool for more energy, focus and concentration! This technique allows us to dwell in the ice-cold lake or ice bath without resistance and for 2 minutes. Taking an ice bath is a great way to discover what you are capable of. It not only boosts your immune system but also self-confidence.

Earth Element

Qi Gong, approx. 30 min.

Through repetitive movement and correct breathing, the flow of QI, life energy, in the body is believed to be positively affected. Each body part (with emphasis on internal organs) is considered to have a certain amount of life energy. The Qi in all body parts, when healthy, is in balance. By performing Qi gong exercises, one attempts to maintain or restore this balance. Qi gong exercises are usually self-contained exercises in which one moves the body parts according to a prescribed pattern and repeats these movements several times before moving on to the next movement. A qi gong exercise can also be static, in which a standing or sitting position is held for a longer period of time.
