MindReACTion is the unique combination: Mind = thoughts and feelings in the psychological sense, ACT = Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (third wave of behavioural therapy). This therapy method brings people closer to their experiences. At the same time, the restrictive rules will be solved and they will commit with openness and responsibly with their current experiences and moments. In the process, they learn to accept all experiences with value and to welcome them with appreciation.
ReACT and ACTion = to adopt a posture. Yes, my life is important to me and I use my chances to make the most of it. Through methodological movements of „Silat“ of Southeast Asia, they learn to overcome fear, resignations and become physically active. In addition, they learn skills to be able to react physically in critical situations and defend themselves in an emergency.
MindReACTion has an important aim to empower people to improve their self-esteem and self-confidence. Using psychological methods along with elements from “Silat” a self-defence martial art, we have created a new concept for self-assertiveness training. This concept brings participants a new way to impress their needs and feelings with a certain body-language and assertive attitude.

This is Pencak Silat:
Pencak Silat from Indonesia with artful movements of highly effective self-defense which strengthens the body, mind, coordination, flexibility, reaction. With Silat a conscious body perception is achieved which leads to an improved posture.
The countries of origin of Silat are Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore.
For some it is a martial art, for others it is a movement theory, some see it as a sport, while there are those who see it as a philosophy. In fact, everyone has a point.
Movement theory – derived from the movement pattern of some animals and the movement dance – puppet – surrounded by a touch of religion and mysticism that can be used as an extremely effective form of self-defense in case of extreme emergencies.
