Sometimes the world gets on my nerves! We have created a society that strives for success, money, power and prestige, forgetting the values that make a truly fulfilling and contented life. Of course there are the exceptions. People who are
Today I present you my interview with Ania Grzeszek. I got to know her digitally as part of the preparations for the “Back to the wool” retreat in the fall of 2018 and was delighted that someone really has the same claim as me. It was important to me, if there should be goodie bags for the retreat participants, these were produced sustainably and naturally. All this I found on Ania’s label KALIKO. And in addition a wonderful person, which I really would like to meet in real life.
Since March of this year the Westend of Wiesbaden has something very special to offer:
Karen Muth opened a real “nature-connected hairdressing salon” there!
After 25 years in employment, she has now ventured the step to her own salon. And she did this with a very natural and (unfortunately) not very common concept.
Here I am and asking for your story. Is that too direct? Maybe. But frankly, I do not care how you feel about the weather or what movie you saw yesterday. At least not if the “why” behind it remains
Janne Vollert is a certified plant-based cook and nutritionist and will be answering my questions today. She will take care of our well-being during “Back to the wool”, the sustainable knitting retreat, and treat us to culinary delights. With her training at the Plant Based Institute, the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and the Ecodemy, she is breaking new ground in the profession of the cook and is also giving workshops on these topics in Hamburg.
My interview guest today is the singer Marjan Shaki from Vienna. Marjan has made a name for herself in the musical theatre scene in Vienna in the last 13 years and now embodies the musical dream couple from Austria with her husband, Lukas Perman. She has been involved in social organizations for some years now and sets her name, amongst other things, to help in a big way.
There are moments in life that you might expect, but when they suddenly pop up, they somehow overwhelm you. For many years I have been dreaming of location-independent life and work. To explore this incredibly beautiful earth and to finally find my place, my home.
Winter is finally here. How much I’ve been longing for him in the last too warm weeks. I longed for walks on fresh, crunching snow, thickly packed from top to bottom, and a dog freaking out with joy at my side.
In June this year, at the retreat of the Laine magazine, I had the honor to meet Valentina Consalvi. She has grown very dear to me directly and since then I do not want to miss her anymore. She runs her company “Snailyarn” in Ariccia near Rome and has made a name for herself as a hand dyer in the knitting scene in recent years.
My friends appreciate me for my honesty. I find it extremely difficult not to say exactly what I think. I am a bad faker! And I am proud of it. But this also leads to rejection and anger very often in
Rosi Mangger from “kraedu” is available to me today as an interview partner. I got to know her when I was traveling to St. Leonhard in the beautiful Val Passiria last fall for on-site research. And right from the beginning I was very enthusiastic about her and her work. She has so much passion for her work, I could feel it directly. Rosi shows us in the “Back to the wool” retreat the manufacturing process of some natural cosmetics and shares her rich knowledge with us.
My guest today is the singer and composer Volkan Baydar from Hamburg. In 2000, he and his partner Vince Bahrdt released a groundbreaking album called Orange Blue: “In Love With A Dream” was awarded platinum and marked the start of a long, successful career. And by the way, it expressed what Volkan Baydar really is about. Not only does he want to live his dream, he also wants to love him. Music is for him what is commonly called a sandbox love.
