Chinta B. Strubin und Visarjana Gaensslen

coupleChinta: “A loving heart in a healthy body are my main interests.”

Master in Literature and teaching at secondary level have sustained my interest for the exploration of who we are in terms of wholy beings, a body-mind association carried by the immense field of the Living.
In 1990 Chinta and VIsarjana have created the Center Keola in Grandvaux – Switzerland.

During this week, Chinta will take care of the coordination, the morning meditations and some wokshops, as: be nourished by light and colours, food and health.

You might also ask her for a session or a massage.

Visarjana: “You are what you eat… and with awareness you are much more.”

Has been working for many years with systemic constellations in different fields (family, relationships, health, work). The human organism is also a living energetic system constantly seeking its equilibrium. The method of constellations will allow each participant to discover through a heartfelt and playful group experience a conscious approach to the harmonious functioning of their organism and its authentic needs.

During this week, Visarjana will discuss with you topics around the enteric nervous system, our second brain, called also the belly, as weel as facilitate constellations.
