Welcome to all those who would like to meditate together.
Meditation is a first of all a journey to ourselves. This space is open to all, beginners and more experienced people, who feel the call to dive into the rejuvenating space of meditation.
Sitting in silence is just one of many ways to do so. We will explore meditation techniques from different traditions and masters during this time.
Meditation and celebration are very close: chanting together, movement and dance can also be wonderful doors to lead us into meditation.

heart coherence excercises and heart meditations
3 h conference - workshop
We also give conference-workshops for organisations, educational institutions and buisinesses on this theme in English, French and German please ask for special version.
Home is where the heart is. The heart is source of our physical, psychological and spiritual wellbeing. The heart gives meaning to our lives, makes us feel connected, balanced and happy. Our heart is also the single most important factor to stress management, mental clarity, our intuitive capacities, problem resolutions, even for productivity at work.
The heart has a strong energy field which is 100 times stronger than the mind; creates the hormones of happiness and can align all the other systems in the bodymind. The heart is therefore the key, ‘the royal path’. That is what the sages of many traditions teach since a long time and are today proven scientific facts.
There are techniques to connect our hearts potential, bringing us wellbeing, intuition, insight and healing. You will learn, in this course, short heart coherence exercises, a heart meditation as well as techniques of Bodymindintelligence to release stress and tensions in general and around our hearts.
This will bring you the opportunity to reconnect in your daily life with inner spaciousness and refreshing relaxation, to clear the mind in a simple and natural way. You will get a first taste of the incrediable potential we have when we connect with our hearts.
This conference-workshop is part 1 of a series of workshops related with the intelligence of our hearts. See also the 'Intelligence of the heart' workshop and training (part 2).
Featuring heart coherence and heart meditations, learning of psychic readings from the heart, acupressure and deep tissue massage, trauma release and scientific research.
2 or 5 days training
31st of August to 4th of September, Parimal Center, Witzenhausen, Germany,
14th -16th of September, Krasnador, Russia

17th - 29th of march 2019, Daramshala, India
Home is where the heart is. The heart gives meaning to our lives, makes us feel connected, balanced and happy. If it is for our health, intimate and social relations, creativity, intuition, conflict resolution, even productivity at work, the heart is the key, ‘the royal path’. That is what the sages of many traditions teach since a long time and now know the science behind it.
Yet we are nearly illiterate when it comes to our hearts; about 40% of the population dies from heart dis-eases. Our broken hearts, unsatisfying relationships, inner restlessness, alienation, depression, even the state of our planet is showing it so clearly.
And yet we all have this wonderful gift of the intelligence of our hearts and intuition inside of us lying dormant. We will awaken it in this workshop bridging the old wisdom of heart meditations with modern western psychology to get in 'touch' with our hearts and its creative, intuitive and healing potential.
We will experience 'heart coherence' and explore different themes in relation with our heart intelligence: inner connectedness and peace, health and healing, communication and relationship, creativity, mental clarity, effectiveness and especially intuition.
We begin with a heart meditation, which brings us right into the space of inner calm and centeredness. This is our starting point to go into synchronicity with others. We experience the natural capacity of our hearts to perceive the other. This is also called 'heart-reading' or psychic readings from the heart. In a clear and conscious way we learn to 'work' with our intuition on this level and experience that we have these incredible gifts of seeing, of deep intelligence inside of us, as a part of our human heritage.
With this natural expansion, we will also touch wounds and trauma and help to release them by working with the ‘bodymind armoring’ in relation with the meridians. For this, we will also learn a very specific acupressure technique in combination with deep tissue massage to release these deep seated tensions and to balance the energies related to the heart.
Welcome to a very touching, surprising, healing and heart-full experience!
1 For scientific research please see also the website of the Heartmath Institute, as well as the website and ground breaking book ‘Love and Survival’ of Dean Ornish MD and world reknowned cardiologist. Also the scientific research of Candice Perth MD and her book ‘Molecules of emotions’ is significant. Some of these techniques were taught already to thousands of people in health care institutions, leadership seminars, to priests and police force officers.
Some testimonials of clients and students see more in our website gallery:
'In the psychic heart reading regarding my mother Ulrich touched me with eyes closed exactly where I had pain in the shoulders since several month and this without that I told him about it before. This session really healed me; the pain is gone and I had plenty of insights.' Sandra G., Psychologist
The effects of the heart meditation are amazingly tangible. I heard the instruction “connect with your heart” before, but you were the first person to actually give me simple guidance to really get there and to “host” my own heart. You teach how to catch the fish instead of giving fish to the hungry ones. You gave me a wonderful gift of feeling I can help and support and calm myself (and others) by being in deep contact with my heart and my body. I admire and appreciate the structure, the methodology of the workshop. You go from simple to more complex, from physical to psychological, from more general to personal and intimate. The timing and rhythm of the workshop are perfect. Physical, emotional, spiritual aspects take turns. You listen carefully to everyone and appreciate each and every person in the room. I cannot imagine workshop-time spent in a more effective, pleasant, enriching and heart warming way. Magda Fleková M.A ; Teacher Trainer - Methodology of ESL - Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies, Czech University
In one sentence: that course was very important for me in my life. Thank you….But the most important thing that all modern medical doctors –and all other people- should know are the heart connection ‘techniques’ you gave. This is the first thing that a doctor got to do seeing his patient. The heart connection and meditation is a simple way to get much more depth and power out of every interaction between doctor and patient. Vladimr Zaitsev, M.D. Pediatric surgeon
I strongly encourage everyone to do this training of the intuitive intelligence of the heart. It really is amazing all the benefits with healing it brings and it simply comes from the heart. This is accessible to everyone and above all is the simplicity and purity of it. As a therapist, it will become natural to connect with my heart and the results it will bring. This is wouahhh! Danielle Bombardier, therapist
Fascinating discovery this ability to work with bodymind therapy and psychic reading through the intuitive intelligence of the heart! I was impressed with their accuracies! I understood the source of some injuries and I realized that we all have this potential synchronicity with each other, the potential to help each other. Marie B., Programmer

We experience their lives and their spirituality, - religion, shamanism, family, friendship and community matters are all naturally interwoven. It is a deeply touching experience where we all can learn from. If the dates fit, we are invited to celebrate with the people of the village one of their Pujas.
Part of the journey is daily silent walking as a form of meditation. This creates the basis to connect deeply with oneself and a truly different experience and way of traveling and sharing together. .. And do not worry there is also time to chit chat over a good meal, chant and celebrate together!

8. A meditative journey: the tantric tempels of Khajuraho, visiting the Tibetans in Dharamshala and the intelligence of the heart course 2019
9 - 29 March 2019; 17 - 29 March for Dharamshala and the intelligence of the heart course
With Ulrich Freitag
This 'passage to India' brings us to the tantric tempels of Khajuraho and to meet with the Tibetans at Dharamshala in Himal Pradesh. It's travel where meditation, celebration and exercises to connect with our potential are part of our daily routine.
The journey starts in Delhi in the World Buddhist Meditation Center and a little visit of the city. The next day we take the plane to Khajuraho and its sacred temples where we will stay for 5 days.
These temples are a space of high energy and a unique occasion to renew our bodies as temple. That is the profound message of Tantra and the rituals which have historically taken place here.
The practise of meditations from the Vighyan Bairavh Tantra, sacred chants and healing circles will allow the participants to let go of tensions, renew their contact with their senses and to realign themselves. We will come back to Delhi to fly the next day to Dharamsahla at the foot of the Himalayas.
We drive up to McLoid Gang, where the Dalai Lama resides. It is also home to about 20,000 Tibetans and the seat of the Government of Tibet in exile. We will stay in the beautiful Tsechokling Monastry for the next week. The monastery is a short walk from the city with it’s cultural organizations, merchants, monastries, restaurants, etc.
This is a real immersion in the Tibetan culture with daily group meditations. We will visit the monastery of the Dalai Lama and the Karmapa, the Nourboulika Institute (Tibetan handicrafts), consult Tibetan doctors, hiking in the mountains ... and simply enjoy the views of the Himalayas, McLoid Gang and its inhabitants.
This environment and lively monastry where we will stay is the appropriate place for our 'Intelligence of the Heart' course, we will emerge into the mysteries of the heart. The exploration of heart meditations allows us to connect with what is already present in us; a refreshing space of joy and inner silence. We learn the amazing art of psychic readings from our hearts to embarque on a wonderful journey which is also related to touch, presence and healing (see full course description under no 6 on the website). We also look together on how we can bring these teachings back to our daily lives.
We leave India the 29 March from Delhi.
'The call of India has brought me in a powerful and fertile ground to be available to the Presence of the Heart, to give me the necessary opening to explore and let itself reveal "The Intelligence of the Heart", the very essence of Life that has always been there. Ulrich's training and his accompaniment, both in the moments of training and in what was emerging in everyday life with all the challenges to be met, allowed me to meet me deeply, to welcome me and to abandon myself in total confidence into the process of rennaissance in and by the Heart. To take the time since my return gives me the opportunity to see today how much benevolence and vigilance Ulrich had taken of what I needed to see and to recognize. A huge thank you to you Ulrich for this intense and wonderful journey inside and out.' 'Marie R. from Quebec, 2018'

10. The Yoga of touch
With Ulrich Freitag
In this workshop we explore touch as a Yoga: a sacred journey to become more alive and present.
We start with a meditation from our hearts and allow all the sensations, feelings, emotions and conditionings related with touch to come up. The intelligence of our hearts will free us from our social conditionings and helps the renaissance of a pure, rejuvenating experience.
Then touch is a deeply nourishing, ‘touching’ personal experience for both, the giving and receiving person. Touch becomes then a sacred ritual, a doorway to pure presence.
This Yoga is in tantric tradition of Kashmir not limited to touching the body, it is a yoga of touching the world and letting you touched by it. This will be equally part of the course.
