Simran K. B. Wester
Simran K. B. Wester was born in Bogotá, Colombia, in 1954 and came to Germany at the age of eleven. In Hamburg, she studied German and geography.
In 1986, she went in search of natural, conscious and community-oriented forms of life — only to finally find them at home in Hamburg, after extensive travel, in the ashram for Kundalini Yoga.
From then on she followed a very clear spiritual path: she took the name Simran Kaur (pronounced Koah) and made a conscious decision to become a Sikh. She trained as a yoga teacher and has been a recognized instructor for Kundalini Yoga for many years.
In 1998, she got to know Marshall B. Rosenberg and the Nonviolent Communication (NVC) that he founded. She attended numerous workshops with Marshall and was certified as a NVC trainer in 2004.
She considers it a special gift to have been able to work for Marshall as an interpreter during his training in Germany and later also as an assistant trainer. She sees the management of International Intensive Training (IIT), which Marshall and the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) have entrusted to her — like some other trainers — as a great honor and responsibility.
Further training courses have supplemented and rounded off their spectrum over the years:
- Bereavement and Terminal Care
- Family and System Constellation According to Hellinger
- Intensive Meditation Retreats
- Psychodynamic Imaginative Trauma Therapy
Simran is married and has two grown children.
