“Breathing is very simple but, precisely because of that, not always easy. I breathe in, and through that, actively step towards my life. I breathe out and surrender to what surrounds and carries me.
Learning and practicing this over and over again, is to me the core of Integrative Breathwork Therapy.”
After having studied Theology, Michael began his profession as a pastor. He now works as a pastor and therapist in a prison. Alongside his work in prison, he has his own private practice in psychotherapy.
Michael adores nature, is an enthusiastic photographer and enjoys cooking. He is also an avid musician and soulfully plays the guitar. Michael is a guest trainer in the training and, together with Hans, guides the chanting. As a counterbalance to his job he very much likes to work with his hands. He is a father to four adult children.
