I work in an agricultural self-help organization, being responsible for project organization and expert advice for members and placement of technical equipment for agriculture.In my personal life I’m very interested in the relationship between soil, plants, animals and humans, how do the relationships function in a grounded and practical way, emphazising the aspects, how we can develop a healthful surrounding for all beings.Since 2003 I’m working with Tanis Helliwell and since 2006 I am a member of the International Institute for Transformation. One of my responsibilities is organizing talks and workshops for Tanis Helliwell in southern Germany.

I’m living in a small village in Southern Bavaria/Germany, and work there as geriatric nurse in mobile service. I’m doing the German translation for the IIT website, Tanis’ workshops in Germany and for her books Pilgrimage with the Leprechaunsand Embraced by Love, and of all her CDs – all this gives me great joy and makes my heart sing. The rest of my time is filled with family and friends and books and movies and dancing.









Facilitators for our e-course

Werner Braun

In my biography meet 2 motifs.Firstly, my concern is the internal development and liberation of people from patterns, through the connection with their creative forces to realize them in a social context. On this background, I did my training for creative social therapist and took courses in non-violent communication according to M. Rosenberg. My second goal was ruled by the encounter with the deeper forces – and the essence of nature. Besides working as a bio. dyn. Gardener myself, this led to working with Tanis Helliwell since 2003 and a training of “Substance knowledge” with Ilse Mueller. It´s a training in deeper perception. I combine Christian and anthroposophic experiences with cosmopolitan modern spirituality. An essential source of power and an important element in the encounter for me is the “Humor”.
