Nirmala Werner

Nirmala has been practicing meditation (Vipassana) since 2002. She finished her degree in social work in the Netherlands, where she worked with homeless and drug addicted people. Her wish to support disadvantaged people and her desire for spiritual practice led her to India and Sri Lanka, where she spent several years working with marginalized women and children as well as getting involved in Theravada teachings and spending a long amount of time in retreats.

Nirmala is trained in transpersonal body-focused psychotherapy and combines embodied mindfulness, meditation and contemplative practices. She is authorised as a Dharma-teacher by Christopher Titmuss, and has been leading a School for Embodied Yoga and Meditation since 2008. Nirmala lives with her partner and three children in an eco-village in the North of Germany. Her website is at www.soulteachings.de.
