This Journey is for the women who want to feel home within themselves
For the sensitive and intuitive woman who knows deep down inside that something is missing in life.
For the woman is longing to feel fulfilled.
Dear beautiful being,
Life can be confusing.
The planet that we're living on is difficult to understand and it sometimes feels like a painful place to be.
Especially being a sensitive being like you are, who wants the best for everything and everyone around her, you might wonder sometimes what you are doing here in the first place.
You are someone who wants to make the most out of life.
You take on a challenge when you face one.
You don't struggle with fighting and pushing, but rather with surrendering and being kind towards yourself.
You know you are intuitive but you can't fully trust it yet and tend to rely on your rational mind instead.
You've experienced or witnessed hardship, but you feel like you shouldn't complain.
Because "it could be so much worse".
But deep down you've always been searching.
Searching for your place on this planet.
You've always been trying to understand what this life is about and you've always longed for a sense of meaning and fulfillment in life.
Dear beautiful being,
I see you, because I am you.
I know what it's like to feel separated from your own essence, looking for ways to truly experience life.
I've tried rock & roll.
I've traveled to different corners of the world.
I've experienced plant medicine and I've investigated different types of spiritualism.
I've pushed myself, broken myself, committed myself and challenged myself.
Trying to find home.
And I'm not saying that any of these things have been bad or useless.
I am grateful that I got to experience them all. Each in their own way have contributed to my quest.
But now I'm at a point where I'm not fighting anymore.
I'm dancing with duality, embracing life as an imperfect human being.
Yes, of course I will also always be on a Journey, but now I'm standing here in front of you ready to serve.
Ready to experience, to play and move with ease.
Together with you.
Because life gets to be easy. It doesn't always need to be heavy and complicated.
And I want you to experience this too.
In this Journey
A Journey home.
Within your Self and on this planet.
Welcome to The Journey.
A Temple for women who are walking their own path, searching for the Essence of Life.
A journey that is not about understanding or rationalizing.
But about feeling and experiencing.
Can you imagine what life would be like if you would peel of the layers and step into your joyful Essence?
If you would feel home in your body and on this planet?
Do you see the magnificent impact that you can make when you are stepping into your Light.
Not by forcing or pushing, but by Being.
Not by over-thinking, but by following your intuition.
Can you imagine how joyful and playful life would be?
Are you ready to step into this Sacred space?
About The Journey
Every woman is different. Every Journey is different.
The way I work doesn't follow any specific guidelines or program and therefore the set-up for this journey will also be tailored to your needs.
We will work together in a container of 3, 4 or 6 months.
And within this container you will receive:
An opening and closing ceremony of 1,5 hour each.
Healing Sessions of 1,5 hour (once per month or twice per month).
Whatsapp / Voxer support From Monday to Friday.
The 1:1 sessions can take place in German, English or Dutch.
The investment will depend on your Journey: the duration, amount of 1:1 sessions and whether we will have whatsapp support. Before speaking about the investment we will have a chat to see if The Journey is the right path for you and if so, in what way we should construct it.
My Vision for The Journey is a space in which you get to evolve, play and elevate. A space that is a force field on its own, transforming anyone who comes in touch with it. You, together with the other woman on this Journey will be the ripple effect of light that this world needs.
And on this Journey, from the beginning to the end I will hold you by the hand, give you a push when needed, mirror you, challenge you, hold you and see you.
Because I want this to happen for you.
What others say about me & my work
"First off: THANK YOU! Danke and also thanks, for inviting me to this wonderful three month journey with you. Although I cannot believe it is already over, I can also not believe how much growth is possible in only three months (but yes, I could easily continue doing sessions with you...).
If you are hesitant (like me in the beginning) whether or not to do the journey: please do it! You wont regret it. When Tessa reached out to me and proposed to do the three-month-journey, I thought I was at a good point in my life. I had overcome depression, loss, heartbreak, and a PhD. I was also in a transitional phase with a lot of travel and tried telling myself going abroad was going to consolidate my mental stability and magically reveal the direction of my future steps in life just because I change scenery. Luckily, Tessa showed me this was the perfect time to actively invest in myself and work on my inner joy – so I wouldn't simply stay stable, but become more connected and brave with myself. And that's exactly what happened.
Already in the beautiful opening ceremony in Tessa's flat I realized that my current mental stability was nothing but emotion-control over my fears of falling back into depression and the all too familiar feeling of utter despair. But avoiding sadness doesn't equal a joyful life and although I had no plan in mind of topics I'd want to "tackle", in each session throughout the 3 months Tessa helped me dismantle more and more layers of the stinky onion that covered my inner most me. It is hard to explain, as it is not like traditional therapy, but through talk and meditation to music I felt save enough to let frightening emotions and memories come up and go through them (and wow, they just waited for their chance to be dealt with :).
Tessa created a setting where anger, sadness, fear, or arrogance and pride were allowed and okay, helping me to get to the point of understanding that the most pressing quest for me on this journey was to find home and peace within myself and start trusting and valuing me in order to move forward stronger and actively living my life – might sound easy, but it is not at all and it was a long, tearful but very enlightening road to get there. The months went by so quickly, but very intensely and I am forever grateful that I got the chance to go on this journey that had a significant impact on me.
I thought I had become an emotional rock and if I want to, I can still be, but through this journey with Tessa I somehow developed or found this warm feeling inside my chest, this calm homely feeling just by myself that I now draw so much energy from. Thank you Tessa, you magician! <3"

"First of all, there are no words to explain how thankful and delighted I am because of this experience. That moment I woke up from the „trance“ state I hadn’t been able to describe everything. As I told you, I felt drunk in a way. Also relieved somehow, and churned. But one crucial thing was the fact that I felt you must have been going through a lot together with me. The heavy breaths and coughs I heard from you made me believe you feel everything with me, every little shiver and all the heavy tears, even stronger than I did. I have no idea if it really was like that for you but I am deeply thankful for all the energy you spent on me.
The day after the the session, the strong wish emerged to get closer to my inner child I met at the beginning of the trance. Thus, I took some meditation and listened to podcasts to come closer to that little J. I understood I have to embrace myself because not so many people did that in my early years. I understood I have to take care for myself and that I, as an adult person, am absolutely able to do so. The thought came up that only I can indulge myself a good and joyful life and that I simply deserve it. I want to try to keep that mindset and to strengthen it.
Within the session, I felt like transforming 2 times. The first transformation was the above described younger J, 3 or 4 years old. The second was POV my mom, when I felt I was crying her tears. A third transformation came up short before our session came to the end - but did not really start though. It all ended up with two different hands, each one grabbing and holding one of my hands. That felt so unbelievably secure. The second transformation made me relieve the pain in my upper spine/ the part between the shoulders. (This pain has still not returned, wow!). Afterwards, close to the end, I felt my heart wanted to open itself. Like taking some weight out of my chest and blowing away the pain in my thoracic spine (which is still there). But it wasn’t really possible. Long story short: I have the feeling that there is an opportunity to open the heart, to feel more free, and to let that pain go, too."

"The retreat has been so far one of the most safe and adventurous experiences I ever made.
Safe because I felt in a super warm well facilitated space.
Adventurous because I felt opening up inside of me that space where anything is possible and indeed life can become an adventure of wonders.
Dreaming about it and "feeling" it in its unfolding are two different things :)
I wanted personally to thank you for responding to your call and for helping women all over the place, and specifically I want to thank you for the healing session you perform in the end... I can imagine how pure your intention was behind it and how much energy was required from you.
Thank you also for the spontaneity!
The retreat gave me a big deal of clarity. That doesn't mean that now I don't make mistakes anymore. I still fall in old patterns and behaviors that don't serve me anymore, but I'm very aware of it now and I can see it in a fast way. I keep having the same patience I could have for a child and I don't blame myself for going back to the old. But I can see it clearly now. Like I am observing from the outside (or the inside). It is also easier to quickly identify what is right for me and what is not: I know it sounds obvious but it wasn't for me, I stayed for hours, days, months and even years in uncomfortable situations, thinking that the sense of unease was natural and ok. And now I don't. Now I know it's bliss what I was meant for."

"First of all: Thank you for organizing the retreat and inviting me to it. The moment I got the invite I knew I needed to join and luckily immediately signed up, as I sensed I would get doubts the closer the event got. So shortly before I was kind of nervous and thought that maybe a full day could be too much, exhausting, maybe boring, maybe I wouldn't "vibe" with the other women and then I'm stuck somewhere in Brandenburg - the kind of false defense mechanism that kicks in when I do something out of my comfort zone :) But, the weather was nice, the women were kind, the space looked beautiful and the music set a comforting atmosphere. So when we sat down and made the first introduction round I felt more like I was having an adventurous day ahead of me.
To me the the altering parts of "speaking - breathing - moving - eating" were in such a good balance. I liked how I could really compare for me these different kinds of meditation and figure out what resonates most with me. Also, having me-time (i.e. dancing with closed eyes) and hearing the stories of hopes and failures from the other women were a powerful mix. I felt like I was allowed to give into my emotions of anger, sadness, self-pity, but seeing and hearing these beautiful strong women set things maybe a bit more into perspective - everyone has their stories, but why should they keep one from being joyful?
It's hard to describe what exactly happened in each step of the retreat. It was certainly a physical and emotional roller coaster, but it helped things getting out of my system that were stuck somewhere and left me with a deep feeling of relaxation and happiness (that even an injured foot couldn't influence otherwise ^^). A year ago I would have never agreed to participate in such an event, thinking it's nothing for me, too esoteric or too unpragmatic (giving up control was just too scary), and I am so grateful to you Tessa, that you patiently and slowly hinted me towards opening up, allowing myself to feel and let go. You really have a gift of making one feel comfortable and trusting, at least me hehe. So, thank you so much and of course: thanks to the chef (I still dream about the food when I'm making my plain pasta ;-)"

"Having a second session opened up more of my soul than I have ever imagined. Afterwards Tessa gave me feedback that was incredible as she hadn't known of the topic of old emotions of worthlessness. The session was calmer and more clearly. More and more new feelings came up inside me and I realized probably one of the biggest lessons in a long time: the wish to be liked by everyone else, just died. And it wasn't a bad thing. It made and makes me feel anew and grounded until today. Knowing, feeling and cherishing who I am is becoming a part of me day by day more."

"Tessa guided me in the beginning of our session straight to the point. It was herself that let me open my heart and cry. She explained what she will do as well as what may happen... I felt in a roller coaster of visions, pictures, emotions. I felt a deep relaxation and relief of letting go whilst healing. Tessa will openly listen, help and heal. Just trust and let it happen. In the aftermath of our session so much started to change. It was a change with no power to control everything, I was able to let it happen. I started to work less (even being systematically relevant), work out more, eat less sugar and do online classes at university I had signed for since fall. The big question Tessa gave me at the end of our session worked a few days in my body mind and soul - and now I Know the answer. Girls - just do a session. Just do it.
Ina - Germany
"The healing with Tessa was very special. She quickly brought me to a place from which I got to re-experience sadness and pain, but I got to move through it by just focusing on my breath. Eventually the feelings of pain and sadness were exchanged for gratitude and love. And this happened multiple times for different personal themes, what a unique journey! Tessa guides you through it until the end, and afterwards she explains everything very clearly. She asks the right questions, get's to the right 'pain' points and lives through it with you. This experience has helped me to get closer to myself. Thank you Tessa!"
Nadia - Rotterdam
"Tessa's curiosity is contagious!
I usually rather over-think things than listen to my gut feeling, sometimes I even thought I didn't have one or lost it. It's not easy for me to let thoughts pass by without judgement and to stay connected with myself instead of the other people in the room. Tessa creates such a positive, appreciative and safe atmosphere that I managed to now be more kind to myself and remain curious for the things that pop up. The healing session stimulated a process of more courage and trust. This helped me to embody Tessa's belief in our own strength and inner compass, and to tap into this at moments where I'd normally mistrust my own feelings and get stuck on opinions and thoughts."

Frequently asked questions
Hello dear, and welcome all the way down this page. You being here shows me that something inside you is ready for a change and that you have a beautiful sense of curiosity. So here are a some FAQ's to clarify a few details, but feel free to contact me with any question, thought or doubt you might have.
When does the journey start and when can I get in?
The Journey will start on the day of your Opening ceremony.
Can you tell me more about the Retreats?
The Retreats (both the singular and multiple days), include lunch on a location just outside or inside of Berlin. Accommodation is not included, but in any case the distance between Berlin and the retreat will be as such, that it will be easy for you to travel back to Berlin if you prefer to spend your nights there.
Do you think this journey is something for me?
If you feel the excitement in your body, if you feel the longing for more and you resonate with the "love letter" I wrote above, then probably yes! But nevertheless let's connect and have a chat to make absolutely sure that this is the right step for you.
I'm not sure which options to choose.
Don't worry. We will thoroughly discuss the options together to make sure that The Journey is tailored to your needs. Which means that it will not be adjusted to what your mind thinks is right, but what you feel is right - that which feels light and exciting. More is not always better and at the same time you will always have the option to extend or add along the way.
And most importantly right now: the only decision you have to make is if you want to have a no-strings-attached chat with me. You can plan this one in through the button below.
