Martin is a creative shaman, weaving meditative stories and imagery from words and music.
Spending some years of his early childhood in tropical Papua new Guinea, he soon discovered his love for strange instruments, sounds, and stories. Originally a visual person, he chose to experience the very gradual process of going blind as a shamanistic transformation. About 20 years ago he learned of the method of deep imagery, and has since used and taught this process as a path to contact, re-integrate, and learn from the often fractured inner parts of self.
In his professional life he has been a graphic artist, translator, and now works as a software engineer. He also teaches the didgeridoo and classes on self-development.
Martin lives with Pe in a house with a garden where crows and other creatures of the land are welcome.

Kathrin has been communicating with nature and the spirits around her home since she was a child. The natural connection to nature weakened somewhat over the years, the longing for the connection – even with like-minded people – remained. That’s why Kathrin tried out different methods, from the practical magic used in the student room to workshops where she also came into contact with the method of chakra travel. She found a “spiritual home” when she came into contact with the reclaiming community and got to know the principles of reclaiming.
The question of our own identity, how we connect and what we do with our place in this world also occupies Kathrin professionally. She is a historian and works as a freelance genealogist. In this capacity she also works as a coach in the USA.
