Bridging Germany and India
For more than 25 years I have been exploring personal development paths, spiritual and yogic practices – initially only aiming at understanding myself and human behaviour better, then progressively focusing on the nature of existence, universal truths and the unfoldment of human potential.
I was born in the Northern Rhineland of Germany, went to school and university in Hamburg (MA Communication Design), and spent most of my life abroad (in 5 countries between the UK and the UAE), enjoying an international career as design director and brand consultant, with eventually more than 17 years of cross-cultural experience. Step by step, I left the fast-paced corporate world which ran parallel to my increasing focus on the spiritual culture of India and was virtually crowned by my Indian wedding.
These days I live in Northern India and mentor individuals who are ready to step up.
I am offering a space that helps people to clear their energy system, to broaden their perspective on life and to ultimately shift towards higher consciousness.
Having been clairsentient from a very early age, I usually sensed a lot about the people around me, their energy and information from their subconscious mind. Only much later I understood clairsentience and my ability to consciously use it for the benefit of others unfolded in recent years.
My regular spiritual practice, self-enquiry, grace/blessings (Deeksha, Shaktipat etc), my incessant interest in universal wisdom and in holistic healing work brought me wonderful experiences and insights over the years (many times I thought Why haven’t I been told/taught this before?): energetic, emotional and physical clearing, realisations through extrasensory perception, higher states of consciousness, the discovery of precious processing tools as well as indications and empowerments for my path. And the journey continues.
There is an infinite list of things that contributed to my formation in this life. For example, my near-death experience (NDE) as a teenager; my depression when I was in my early 20s which got cleared during a shamanic healing retreat (not psychotherapy); lessons learned through personal and existential crises; synesthesia; kriya yoga; zazen; initiatic therapy acc. to Dürckheim; the systemic constellation process; spiritual science through Clinical Hypnosis acc. to Dr. Yogesh Choudhary and other pioneers in spiritual hypnosis such as Dolores Cannon; workshops and further education in holistic healing at home and abroad; pilgrimages to powerspots between Europe and Asia; encounters with and initiations by masters and mentors; the alchemy of marriage; and many more. And there was also my first experience of transcendence at the age of 5 while my great-grandmother Katharina was praying the rosary in silence. The taste of space and peace of mind which I got at that time, I’ve never lost, but I had forgotten it and remembered it only decades later.
I’m married to my Indian life partner, an entrepreneur, yoga teacher and photographer, and we spend most time of the year in a small city on the banks of Ganga in the Himalayan foothills. I speak German (mother tongue), English, Italian and Hindi (in progress).
