This week, founders of Atelier Tenera, Ela Mete and Defne Özdoğan, have curated a playlist representing different stages of human emotions and growth. May each song heighten your senses, remind you to feel, and awaken your inner child.

"This playlist transports us to the church in London we used to go for five rhythms meditation for ecstatic dance. We wanted to create fluidity by the alignment of songs, representing different stages of human emotions and growth. The playlist is made to listen from the beginning until the end to experience the story of the rhythms. It transports us to many lands, many emotional states, progressing through each rhythm. Thats why it feels like home, deep within!" - Defne & Ela
What does self-remembrance mean to you? What brings you back to yourself?
State of trans, doing something I love just for doing it getting lost in it… not for the beginning not for the end, not to please any expectations. This is how i find my true self. It can be during my work, or dancing, painting, even knitting.
Which of the six senses is your favorite?
Hearing among the 5 senses. Its mysterious and powerful. For me sound and music has always been one of the greatest inspiration. However if I include the six senses, the answer is my sixth sense - the extrasensory perception, the intuition. Its something that’s even more mystical and unexpected. Its full of games, its always with you yet so hidden. I like getting to know my sixth sense.
What awakens your inner child?
Dancing and spending time with people I looove.
