In this years of practical work and the integration of deep understanding of the works and interrelatedness of mind, body and emotion are the roots of the Breath-therapy training ,she created and delivered since 1982 in Germany, Italy and from 1986 in Brazil sharing with thousands of people this wonderful tool.

From time to time there are “Essence Journeys” offered to special wonderful places of our planet.
“Definitely I feel very blessed in my life to have met so many realized people to support this journey home to essence and feeling blessed, that I had so many opportunities to share my insights.I am grateful that I could get to know so many countries and cultures, so many wonderful authentic people, imbibe ancient and modern wisdoms and living truth.
I am deeply thankful to Osho, who gave me this name Samvara (the mystic union of all form), as a constant single pointed reminder of true reality.
