Christoph Wasser, coordinador europeo

 

Christoph Wasser vive al borde de la selva negra, cerca de Friburgo, Alemania. Creció en una gran ciudad y desde pequeño descubrió su pasión por la naturaleza y la agricultura, la cual lo sigue acompañando hasta el presente. Durante los últimos 26 años, trabajó en una organización agrícola regional de autoayuda. Actualmente se encuentra en el proceso de darle una nueva orientación a su vida profesional.

Su entrada al campo agrícola se vio muy influida por sus experiencias con las actividades de apoyo comunitario, lo cual ha sido siempre un tema central en su vida. Esto lo inspiró a involucrarse en distintas actividades de manera regular, como por ejemplo en fomentar el apoyo a la agricultura por parte de la comunidad (CSA). Para Christoph, practicar la agricultura significa trabajar en el origen de toda cultura social. Al hacerlo, él intenta incluir la naturaleza en todas sus facetas espirituales y trabajar junto a ella de manera responsable.

Después de un inspirador viaje a Irlanda en el 2003, Christoph comenzó a estudiar con Tanis. La claridad y autenticidad de su trabajo con Tanis lo está llevando cada vez más cerca de sus problemas esenciales, y lo está ayudando a resolverlos y encontrar su propio camino en la vida. Y lo que él considera más enriquecedor en este proceso es la oportunidad de trabajar una gran cantidad de temas en equipo con otras personas.

Christoph es el representante y coordinador europeo del Instituto Internacional para la Transformación (IIT). Desde el 2006 que organiza talleres, seminarios y retiros para Tanis Helliwell en Friburgo, Alemania y en la selva negra.

Monika Bernegg, traductora de alemán

Monika vive en un pueblo pequeño en Baviera del Sur, Alemania. Trabajó como enfermera geriátrica durante más de 20 años, y anteriormente había trabajado en la industria electrónica. El hilo conductor de su vida fue la búsqueda de la mejor manera en la que contribuir al mundo. Al principio intentó hacerlo desde la política, luego con distintas terapias en su vida personal, hasta que comenzó a comprometerse seriamente con su propio desarrollo espiritual.

En el año 2003, se contactó fonalmente con Tanis Helliwell y con el IIT. No pasó mucho tiempo antes de que se enamorara del método holístico, de la espiritualidad profunda y de los variados conocimientos y experiencias de Tanis - y en especial de su humor y de su notable humanidad. Así fue como Monika decidió tomar el curso de IIT para obtener el "Certificado de Transformación Espiritual".

En el 2005, comenzó a traducir el boletín de IIT al alemán, y luego el sitio web en el 2007. Al traducir los materiales de los cursos de IIT, y la mayoría de los libros y CDs de Tanis, pudo acceder a un grado de comprensión mucho más profundo. Lo que más le apasiona hacer es tener la oportunidad de hacer interpretaciones en vivo de los talleres de fin de semana de Tanis (o durante eventos de otros maestros espirituales), donde puede estar en contacto directo con los participantes. Puedes contactarla aquí: berneggm(at)t-online.de.

Además, es facilitadora de los cursos online de IIT en su zona. Este otoño será Transforma tu trabajo.

 


Ornella Quinteros, Spanish Translator

Ornella Quinteros vive en Buenos Aires, Argentina. La espiritualidad fue siempre una de las cosas más interesantes para ella desde que participó en una constelación familiar y pudo sentir qué tan real es la energía cuando tenía apenas 12 años. Algunos años más tarde, Ornella se formó para ser reikista y comenzó leer libros sobre metafísica, ángeles, la ley de la atracción... hasta que una de sus amigas más cercanas le prestó el clásico Un verano con los duendesToda la información que encontró en ese libro era totalmente nueva para ella, y nunca la olvidó. Más adelante se graduó como traductora en el par de idiomas inglés-español, y así finalmente terminó el proceso de estudio de inglés que había comenzado cuando tenía 6 años. Un día de febrero del 2019, mientras atravesaba una situación difícil, recordó aquel libro maravilloso y decidió contactarse con la autora, Tanis Helliwell. Conectaron y acordaron trabajar juntas inmediatamente.

Ornella está encantada de ser parte de una comunidad que se dedica con tanto compromiso a mejorar y contribuir al mundo. Actualmente, trabaja como traductora de manera freelance y como profesora de inglés, y siempre está en busca de oportunidades nuevas para crecer.

Werner Braun

After his basic training as agricultural engineer Werner Braun worked for many years as biodynamic gardener and as gardening therapist. Besides being connected to nature, his great desire is that social interactions are shaped respectfully, and humans encounter each other with mutual respect (training as social therapist DFS rsp. “Zukunftswerkstatt Therapie kreativ“).

Since 2003 Werner has studied with Tanis Helliwell. During that time he also has trained his perceptive ability at deeper levels in an education in “Substance Knowledge” with Ilse Müller.

With his roots being Christian and Anthroposophical spirituality, his great concern is bringing about a greater connection and unterstanding between the various spiritual traditions. This is also a core issue of IIT.

Werner’s source of power and joy is his sense of humour, which others are welcome to ignite. An essential basis for him is the support of his family and friends and his being deeply connected to soil and garden. He likes to process his experiences in form of “condensed” poems.

More information about Werner at www.echinos.de or you can send him an email at webebu(at)gmx.net. This fall (Oct. 13/14) he will be facilitating the IIT e-course Transform Yourself in the Freiburg area, call 0049 766162320

In the year 2008 Isabel participated for the first time in a workshop led by Tanis Helliwell. Since then she has completed various courses of the IIT.

To Isabel the work with IIT is a wonderful support in aligning humans, nature and cosmos with each other. This work helps getting to know oneself better, uncovering undesirable patterns and letting them go. In her opinion it is very precious to work out different issues together in a group with other people.
