Kirsten & Burkhard

“The two who train you are Burkhard & Kirsten. They’re a couple, not married, from Germany. Truly fabulous teachers, they remain professional 100% of the time; two very different personalities that complement the training (and each other) beautifully. And they’re both extremely passionate about teaching. The kindness is overwhelming from these two.”
– Pip from the UK, August 2014

Thank you for helping me grow and dive deeper.”

Forrest Lake, Sweden

“Before I took the 3-Day Spiritual Heart Retreat, I didn’t really know how to meditate. I’d got pretty good at sitting still physically, but my mind was not still at all. During the 3 days, I felt so peaceful, and at one with nature, with myself. Now, meditation is a part of my life. I feel so grounded and ready for the day after it. It wouldn’t be this way without those profound 3 days to guide me in.

“Your beautiful energy full of wisdom, profound experience and integrity makes me realize how important it is to receive teachings in the most conductive environment much of which is created by the gifted transmitters. Apart from the wonderful teachings that you shared with joy and admirable humbleness, I feel how deeply your careful observations and pertinent perceptions have affected my entire Sadhana to new levels of profoundness. “
– Guillaume from France, May 2012
