“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.” ~ Paul Coelho
My name is Lisa and I am happy to welcome you here. My work and this page are all about personal growth and holistic health, but before we dive in, I want to tell you a little bit about myself.
I was born in Germany but carry a nomadic heart deep inside my chest. I spent the past decade between countries and the last few years breathing, living and working in Nepal. It was a dream come true. But it took me a long time to take courage and follow that dream and with it, a different path.
I was very lost for a really long time. Stuck in a career for years that I hated, too scared to quit, too scared to disappoint others, ruffle feathers, with no plan B, no idea what I was good at, existential fears. Running on unresolved trauma, I attracted people and situations into my life that brought the same familiar pain, the same familiar drama.
My journey of self-discovery and deep inner healing started about 15 years ago. I had a deep knowing early on in my life that someday I would have to do a lot of digging. That someday I would need to seek support to integrate certain experiences. I carried a lot of pain. And repressed pain never goes away. Quite the opposite. It gets locked in the heart, in the body and even in our genes. And sometimes it spills over and runs our lives. And it was painful to live a life that didn´t feel fully like my own. That maybe made sense to those around me, maybe even made sense in my own head, maybe even looked good on the outside; but it carried with it an emptiness and disconnectedness felt deep in my heart. I had a great longing of breaking the cycle of pain.
A journey began that had little to do with adding on, but all with stripping down. Layer by layer of conditioning, old belief systems and behavioural patterns, ancestral baggage, trauma. Old long forgotten wounds brought to the surface so they could be seen, illuminated and healed. I met incredible mentors, therapists and teachers along the way who supported me in different ways. And through the work with them, I met myself. I slowly uncovered who was breathing beneath all these layers. A wholehearted, creative, deeply compassionate, courageous, wild, curious woman with a great passion for holistic health and wellbeing, uncomfortable questions, depth, honest conversations, heartfelt decisions, soulful connections and a desire to be of service for others.
I am passionate about the work of our inner landscapes. That real transformation that can only happen when we take responsibility for our life. When we get curious to understand why things are on repeat. The moment when wounds turn into wisdom and stumbling blocks become stepping stones. Real integration of our most complicated feelings and experiences, so we can connect to who it is we are and start living our own life, authentically.
My work is deeply intuitive. It is designed to empower you to take responsibility for your life and what happens in it. It is designed to bring you deeper into yourself and into your body. Not faster, not more, but deeper.
To the root.
