Trees of Life

Roots as a Resource: A new way of connecting with your ancestors


My offer "Trees of Life––Your Roots as Resource" is an invitation to a unique journey to your ancestors.

Going beyond classical genealogy, it is designed to connect you to your ancestors by really feeling them so that they become a true and powerful resource for you.


Knowing the dates and whereabouts of your ancestors are certainly helpful on that inner journey. Yet the new approach allows you to connect to them even if you do not have all the facts.


Your personal soul is intrinsically connected to the soul of your family. Trained as a Gestalt Therapist, I will guide you into the landscape of your soul to the inner path leading to the Trees of Life.

They connect your personal soul with the family soul and the collective soul allowing a new understanding of events and emotions that may still be unseen or unresolved in your family.


I developed this approach to profoundly support you in connecting with your ancestors and the layers of time they lived in.


The Zeitgeist ("Spirit of the Time") becomes feasible.


The journey into the landscape of your family soul invites you to a new movement that includes stuck emotional areas that may affect your life now and allows you to deeply access your roots in a palpable way like never before.


Your forefathers and foremothers become alive. Their presence becomes palpable to you. Feeling them supporting you on your path is designed to foster a profound change in your life.


The package "Trees of Life––Your Roots as Resource" includes:


  • Preparation

The journey starts with your own tree of life.

  •     You get a pdf with the template for your own tree of life designed by Joachim.
  •     You get guidance on how to map your own Tree of Life. You will fill in your own parents and grandparents (and other important ancestors) and connect them with events from the time layers. This is a grounding preparation to let your personal and collective roots and routes becoming visible and tangible. 

Your Tree of Life is a map to your resource.

  • Session

In a subsequent 120-minute session, in a video conference online or in Berlin,

  •     You can discover and explore your feelings and experiences with your ancestors in a mindful space. The following questions may play an important role in that exploration:
  •     Which ancestors were physically or emotionally marginalized or cast out?
  •     What feelings you are feeling may (also) be feelings of your ancestors?
  •     What role do guilt and compassion play?
  •     What was kept silent about in your family?
  •     Which physical symptoms you experience are hints from the family soul to be uncovered through you?


  • Debrief

After the session, you can write an email within 10 days about how the new experience has unfolded in you, and I'll respond promptly to support a sustainable and embodied experience for you.

The offer "Trees of Life––Your Roots as Resource" is a new way to find a home in your roots and routes of yourself and your family.
