Dear friends, dear visitors to our seminars, dear readers of this letter,
From our point of view, it is now about
to acknowledge that we cannot fight reality.
That it is wiser to let her take hold of you
and surrender to it.
All of our respirators, disinfectants, and protective suits, or all of our anger at those who caused useless restrictions, didn't really stop the crisis. All of our anger at the nonsensical scaremongering or at the hoarding, did not appease the fear.
We are shaken from the ground up.
How about feeling this shock with every fiber of our being and looking where it leads us?
There is an inner voice in each of us that calls to us in this crisis,
what to do or not to do at any given moment.
Sometimes it will be a matter of strictly following the rules.
And sometimes the inner voice may also advise us to behave differently from what we perceive as the mainstream around us.
How about paying attention to this inner voice Now - and also just paying attention to everyone else, the government, the panic makers, the conspiracy theorists, the hamster buyers, the advocates - to respect everyone, however he behaves?
And also ourselves ...
How would it be to let this crisis take hold so deeply that it leads us to our innermost center?
There is the center of strength, trust, love, wisdom, devotion in each of us: our heart.
Let us walk with determination in our hearts. Only our hearts know how we can survive this crisis.
Our hearts do not let us sink under the fear of death: yes, there is death. But the heart also knows that it comes at exactly the right time for each of us and that we do not have to defend ourselves against death. He is actually our friend. It helps us to live. If we can face the fact that we are mortal, we can become very alive and make the best of every moment.
We can scold the curfews and whine about the financial crisis.
But we can also accept life's invitation to come to our senses now, to rest, to ourselves.
How about if we now take time every day for silence, for nature, for prayer, for meditation, for connecting with the great secret of life? And for the people who are particularly close to our hearts?
Psychoneuroimmunology knows today that prayer, meditation, love actually have a major impact on the immune system.
Now is the time. Of course, but not only for medical reasons.
We will discover that this crisis will change our own consciousness and the consciousness of humanity as quickly and as hard as hardly anything before. We will discover that we are seized by a new consciousness.
A consciousness that is anchored in the heart. A consciousness that comes from devotion to reality, from trust, from love, from joy, from connection.
Now is the time to open up to this new consciousness with determination.
We invite you if you can and like ro connect you with us in our daily meditation.
Maybe at 7 p.m. or at another time.
I sit up straight.
And feel the earth beneath me in gratitude.
I open myself to the love that comes to me from heaven.
Feeling into my hands, I leave doing and step into being.
And then I feel my breath.
I notice how it inhales and exhales in itself.
I feel the breath in the space of my heart.
I breathe in the name of Jesus.
And collect when you breathe in the name of Jesus
all fear, all worry, everything oppressive, everything heavy that is in me,
as well as what comes out of the world around me,
collect it and bring it to the center of my heart,
where it dissolves in the fire of love.
And then I exhale in the name of Christ.
I breathe out the name of Christ in light, joy, love, healing, happiness, peace.
And with every new inhalation in this way:
We wish everyone the courage of the heart!
With a warm bond

A letter from the virus:
From the creator of the virus:
Here is an excerpt from the book Queen of the Forest - a shamanic healing path with the homeopathic remedy Santo Daime (Ayahuasca), Johannes Latzel
My god, it's a roller coaster. I was almost convinced that my ultimate enlightenment had finally taken place. And what is that now?
In the middle of the ritual, I realize that I am in a malaria area. I don't trust malaria prophylaxis. And this Wolfgang I met here? Isn't it still all yellow? Yes, he said it himself: he has been here before and got malaria! And didn't I hear it clearly from him: Not only he, but also many other guests would have gotten malaria during their stay here?
In fact, the area consists almost entirely of swamps and tortuous streams. So many mosquitos! My God, if I get malaria here and die miserably? Hot fear creeps up on me. "Concentrate on the chants, concentrate on the prayer," calls an inner voice. "You know where that leads: energy follows attention. Concentrated attention is creative power. If you continue to think about malaria, you could do it on Really get the end, so stop and focus on the chants! "
No chance. The thought "Malaria!", Just a small plant, becomes a tree that grows to heaven. And grows and grows. With frantic speed. The highly concentrated thought "malaria" fills me up completely, fills every fiber, every cell of my being.
"Stop! Be attentive to the songs! "Calls the inner voice again.
Suddenly I know with unmistakable certainty: my attention has fallen into the primordial ground of creation, the deepest ground of the soul, where my reality arises, the matrix of creation. I know I'm going to get malaria. And nothing will be able to stop the disease. This is hell! This is unspeakable agony in the face of unbearable fainting. The devil caught my soul. There is no way out ... Everything in me is dark, jet black ...
And yet I sing, if I continue to dance with the last of my strength, I hold myself like a drowning man to the singing and dancing of the community, which, to the best of its ability, continuously focuses its attention on God.
There. A tiny little light. A very small, tender thought: "Then you lie in bed, maybe you will die and maybe not, but in any case it was that with your exploration of the rituals, then you can no longer participate. You can't continue studying at your university! "
"No longer participating in a ritual? Stop studying when I'm here at this incredible university? I want that though! I would so much like to be taught by the Queen of the Forest! "
Queen of the forest!
It's a different idea than malaria. A thousand devils struggle to blow out the light of this thought again, to divert my attention from the Queen again. But it doesn't work. I sense that it has to do with my real interest. Or should I even call it love?
Suddenly I suspect that our world is being created anew every moment. It is created in our own soul ground by what we love and fear. Our interest is our creative power.
We have to meet what interests us. We will not escape it. Except our interest changes.
In any case, one thing is certain: the queen of the forest is more important to me than malaria.
The light grows very slowly. The giant tree of disease begins to shrink. At some point I know: I won't get malaria. I will stay healthy here all the time. Deep gratitude fills me. The gratitude of someone who has just seen someone save their lives. "
Dear readers of our newsletter,
All kinds of opinions are going around in the currently very emotionally heated-up atmosphere. Some are pointing to specific cases of severe respiratory disease, involving even young people, and deaths from respiratory disease. Many are afraid of falling ill or even of dying and are grateful for the government’s actions, making every effort to combat the coronavirus with rigorous means. Others rant against the scare tactics and point to the actual mortality rate and the difference between "infected" and "actually sick", also pointing out that not everyone who dies tested positive for coronavirus has died of corona. Still others are furious about the fact that in only a few days, basic democratic laws such as freedom of assembly and freedom of movement have been overridden and that critical articles are disappearing from the Internet after only a short time due to censorship. They suspect the influence of unprecedented manipulation in the mass media and that they are being governed by power and economic interests. Finally, still others are demanding a meaningful scientific investigation into the real risk of the corona virus, or even suspecting that the government is not implementing this, because it is afraid of losing face, as the inappropriateness of taken measures would then become apparent. Still others are stunned by the surge of advertisements for breathing masks and shake their heads in disbelief at the fact that apparently some have nothing in mind but to derive profit from the crisis for themselves.
It seems to us that collectedness and inner calm are the top priorities. And also humility. Probably none of us can see the whole truth as it is clearly.
From our perspective, the corona crisis is the beginning of a process in which humanity is entering a deep transformation process - a process of spiritual awakening.
From psychotherapy we are familiar with the phenomenon that individuals enter into a mental illness during the initial phase of their spiritual awakening. For example, you may develop an anxiety psychosis, a mania or a depression or even alternately all three of these varieties of psychoses. It is then crucial for a therapist of such a patient to pay attention to the phenomenon of "transference" and not to be drawn in by the psychosis of his patient, but to be vigilant, otherwise the psychotherapist him or herself may easily collapse into fear or even anger towards the patient.
It seems to us that almost all of humanity has currently gone into a state of anxiety. We see this as the beginning of a collective healing process. The opportunity to wake up as never before. The process of awakening more and more means letting go of our resistance towards reality. To be able to accept reality, as it is, more and more in and as love. Not to judge anyone. To understand everyone. And to connect with the place in the core centre of the soul that is always healthy, always whole, always at peace.
We warmly invite you all to meditate in silence with us every morning and evening - if you like, in the way we suggest in our text on the corona crisis on this website - or otherwise however you would like to join in .We meditate at seven in the morning and evening for a quarter of an hour, or even longer if possible. If it is not possible at seven o'clock, then at a different time.
"Energy follows attention," is a key quote from Hawaiian philosophy. Especially in times of crisis, it is of consequence where we focus our attention. In this context, we refer once again to the excerpt from the book that we have quoted at the end of our text on the corona crisis on this website.
You may also like to participate in this petition, in which Angela Merkel is requested for scientific investigation into the risk of the corona virus:
Togetherness in Silence is a great Power. Thank you for connecting with each other and with your heart.

Message from White Eagle, Hopi Indian, North American tribe, March 16, 2020
"This moment that humanity is going through can now be seen as a portal and a
The decision to fall into the hole or go through the portal is up to you.
If you regret the problem and consume the news 24 hours a day, with little energy,
nervous all the time, with pessimism, you will fall into the hole.
But if you take this opportunity to look at yourself, rethink life and death, take care
of yourself and others, you will cross the portal.
Take care of your homes, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual home.
When you are taking care of yourself, you are taking care of everything else.
Don't lose the spiritual dimension of this crisis; have the look of the eagle, which from
above, sees the whole; sees more broadly.
There is a social demand in this crisis, but there is also a spiritual demand. The two go
hand in hand.
Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism. But without the spiritual dimension,
we fall into pessimism and meaninglessness.
They were prepared to go through this crisis. Take your toolbox and use all the tools you
have at your disposal.
Learn about resistance with indigenous and African peoples: we have always been and
continue to be exterminated. But we have not stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire
and having fun.
Don't feel guilty for being happy during this difficult time. It does not help at all to be sad
and without energy. It helps if good things come out of the Universe now. It is through joy
that one resists. Also, when the storm passes, each of you will be very important in
rebuilding this new world.
You need to be well and strong. And, for that, there is no other way than to maintain a
beautiful, joyful and luminous vibration. This has nothing to do with alienation.
This is a strategy of resistance. In shamanism, there is a rite of passage called the quest
They spend a few days alone in the forest, without water, without food, without protection.
When they pass through this portal, they get a new vision of the world, because they've
faced their fears, their difficulties...
This is what is asked of them:
Allow yourself to use this time to carry out your vision quest rituals. What world do you want
to build for yourself? For now, this is what you can do: serenity in the storm. Calm down, pray
Establish a routine for meeting the sacred every day.
Good things come out; what comes out of you now is the most important. And sing, dance,
resist through art, joy, faith and love.
From my perspective I can see that Covid 19, the Coronavirusdisease,
is an infectious disease which causes for some people severe symptoms,
especially pneumonia, and even for some people death.
But how dangerous really is this virus ?
Professor Anthony Fauci, Director of the american Center of disease control,
ist writing in New England Journal of Medicine, one of the leading medical Journals
of the world:
"...the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza
(which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968)
rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively…"
Some people interpret this as: So Corona is just a flu and the rest is just panic- making.
It seems to me it is not just like that.
Although the virus does not cause so many deaths as many assume, the disease is highly infectious and
causes in many people severe symptoms, and also dying with extreme breathing problem is a pretty hard kind of dying.
However, the question is: Is rigoros isolation and strict avoiding of any contact and forbidding movement really what helps in this situation?
From my perspective the immunsystem is very much depending from the state of consciousness and from the emotional state.
So to meet in appropriate frame and to strengthen each other through helpfull contacts like common meditation, singing, sharing,
guiding our attention more to trust und joy instead to panic seems to me more effective than rules which rigorously end the freedom
of moving and sharing.
The most important thing in these times seems to me to connect - with our hearts,
to connect with each other, to connect with the big mystery of life.
In the centre of our hearts is created our life force and our ability to face demanding situations
Connected in the heart
