switzerland

in switzerland, I contribute my work towards valuation & protection of the water space.

I create & hold spaces of healing by giving lomi lomi nui massage.

I accompany individuals or small groups on mindwalk-retreats to alpine spaces.

I have worked many years with circles dedicated to schamanic healing, where I tended to the fire during visionquests & sweatlodge rituals.

holding the space for transformation to work

as a firewoman I tend to the fire – central axis of the ritual and powerful element of transformation. in guarding the fire, I safeguard the ceremony’s space, as a clear and powerful space, into which people come with their life’s challenges, questions and fears. to find inspiration and clarity and to enable transformation to work its power.
