Hi, my name is Uta Negelen.


Born in 1959 in Germany, I live in the Netherlands since 1982.

From childhood on, I have a deep connection with nature. As a toddler, I could dream away just by just seeing a flowering plum tree. I often forgot all about my friends at the sight of a butterfly.  In my adolescent years, I was inspired to draw and paint. I wanted to study at the Acadamy of Fine Arts, but the compromise with my parents was graphics training.

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

At the time my daughters went to college, 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 I sought my own spiritual path.

I discovered the cosmology of the Incas, through my friendship with Jessica,

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

The Inca teachings remain a daily source of inspiration and is my permanent companion.

Forgiveness appeared to be an overall issue on my spiritual path. It runs like an all connecting thread through my life.

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


Besides participating in the workshops, I am responsible for the layout and printwork for Munay.
