Martin Pleissner

Rewilding & Primal Movement Workshop

For Martin life is all about reconnection to our true, natural self. As a former aerospace engineer living in capitol cities, working for big corporates and developing machines he came to a point of stagnation and frustration that put him into a new direction. This is why he founded Human Aliveneness to leave humanitys current path into a more and more artificial, technocratical society and fully embrace the beauty and perfection of the organic creation instead. He sees our vitality of utmost importance which means conscious embodiment, connection to nature and thriving in a community of likeminded people.

Marek Žilinec

Drummer & Percussionist

Drummer, percussionist, producer, author, music teacher, active studio and concert player. From a rebellious rocker, he has gradually worked his way up to a sensitive and perceptive player with a relentless appetite for exploring the unknown and experimenting. Music and instruments of different cultures became his great love. His outlook on music and the meaning of life underwent a gradual transformation. Yogic culture, Eastern philosophies and trips to India, where he could spend time in the presence of spiritual masters like Mooji and Sadhguru were such a natural consequence of his personal need for self-development and self-discovery. All of this was also strongly reflected in his music. This year Marek has toured several European capitals such as London, Paris , Milano , Vienna , Ljubljana with the world famous Indian formation SOUNDS OF ISHA, accompanying the spiritual master SADHGURU. Marek is currently the drummer of the band of Richard Autner, Martin Geisberg and various other projects.  You can see him as a drummer in the production of Macbeth at the Slovak National Theatre, where he is also the author of the music for this performance consisting only of drums and percussion.
