Hi, my name is Uta Negelen.

Born in 1959 in Germany, I now live for 35 years in the Netherlands. Because I grew up in Lower Saxony in the north of Germany,the flat Netherlands was very familiar to me.

From childhood on, I have a deep connection with nature. As a child, I could dream away just by seeing a flowering plum tree. Often I forgot about my friends in the sight of a butterfly. This is why, in my adolescent years, I was inspired to draw and paint. I wished to join the Acadamy of Fine Arts, but the compromise with my parents was graphics training.

Shortly after moving to the Netherlands, I became a mother of two beautiful daughters and I had a lot of opportunities to be creative with them.

When my daughters went to college and I divorced, I decided to attend a German HBO study to become a teacher.  As a minor course, I chose 'Training and Coaching.'

 

Although I grew up in a strict Christian family,  I have never been able to accept the dogmas of the church and sought my own spiritual path. After getting acquainted with Indian and Tibetan Buddhism, I discovered, through my friendship with Jessica, the philosophy of the Incas.

Their profound connection with Pachamama, Mother Earth, touched me deeply. By now, I have attended several seminars from Juan Núñez del Prado.  Juan is a well-known anthropologist and one of the most famous spiritual teachers of South America.

Since then, the Inca teachings are a daily source of inspiration and my permanent companion.

On my spiritual path, the theme of forgiveness appeared to be an overall issue, and it runs like an all connecting thread through my life.

Therefore, I find it self-evident to offer munay workshops in connection with Jessica.

In ayni (reciprocity), I like to pass on my knowledge to people who are open to other views on life, and the options we have to redesign our paradigma.
