"For me, there is almost nothing more exciting than those moments in which new insights into what it means to be human emerge, both in myself and in my counterpart."

I think it was in 2006, or just before, when I was in the meditation room, hanging on the lips of my teacher at the time, and I suddenly had this thought: "I want that!" I want to accompany people and make it possible for them to have these "aha" experiences that have been granted to me so many times on my path.

I want to be a part of their development and be allowed to witness how they grow, how treasures are recovered from conflicts, how freedom arises from constriction and relaxation follows. I want to see people breathe a sigh of relief and rejoice because a piece of the puzzle in their lives has been put back together. I want to guide them courageously through the fire, knowing that in my care the heat cannot harm them. That's what I want, and at the same time I want us to have fun and laughter... and then the book by Marshall Rosenberg flew into my hands.

After the first introductory course, I knew I wanted to be a trainer. Since then, I have been searching for my path, and every crossroads makes me richer in experience. It is these experiences that I try to make tangible in my seminars. That is all. There is nothing else.

Nonviolent Communication is for me a link, a bridge not only between individuals or between peoples, but also a bridge to integrate ancient spiritual traditions and wisdom into everyday life.

“Of course it is important what we say and how we say it, but what is even more important is why we say it and what we really mean by it.”

There is only one wrong way of looking at things, and that is to believe that mine is the only right one.
“Conflict resolution is like pearl diving - you have to venture into the depths and you have to know what you are looking for.”
