Mate Introduction & Team Building




A Mate circle is an instrument to get to know people, find similarities, bond and develop trust. Originally an indigenous ritual to welcome new-bees, the mate drinking circle was used to foster communication in a deeper level.

A short introduction on history of mate is given followed by a DIY session teaching the preparation of 3 different mates and explaning the differences between monoculture vs. wild, industrial vs. artisanal, Argentinean, Uruguayan, Paraguayan and Brazilian mates. Learn how to drink Mate the traditional way out of a cuia (mate cup) and bomba (straw) and receive a short explanation on the history of Club-Mate and the hacker brause movement in Germany.

An hour is recommended to enjoy the Mate Workshop, and can be open-end according to arrangements. This is suitable from 3 to 20 people. Fabrício is experienced in Creative Tools for Innovation Management and Team building and can by request guide the Mate circle with this focus if request.

10€ /Person, and snacks and bottled drinks can be ordered to it.

  1. “I reccomend the < > highly as an unique experience. We used this session in Berlin for onboarding our new team mates. But it was not only a general team event for us because the experience goes far beyond. As a ceremony master, Fabricio knows exactly how to combine his deep culture knowledge and his knowledge about traditionall Mate ceremonies to show similarities to daily team challenges as discussions and decision processes. Our team of 12 learned a lot on different levels and had a great experience also with reflecting on our own team understanding about collaboration and team culture. We appreciated very much the spent hours with Fabricio in September 2014 and the delicious Mate at the <> in Berlin and we will definetly do this again with our teams.
