Bernhard Guenther

Battling severe depression in his early life, Bernhard's journey of self-discovery and healing lead him to spiritual/psychological self-work and the Healing Arts, studying and practicing Yoga, Qi Gong, Meditation, Dance and Drumming, Psychology, Shamanism, as well as various spiritual and ancient esoteric occult teachings. His personal healing process also inspired him to explore the mysteries and hidden knowledge surrounding our planet and humanity’s origins, questioning the roots of what constitutes “reality”, and how social (and spiritual) conditioning impacts our collective and individual search for truth, fulfillment, and happiness in all aspects of life. Over the course of his life, Bernhard has studied extensively various healing modalities throughout his life and graduated from the ‘Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing’ (IPSB) in Los Angeles and the ‘Esalen Institute’ in Big Sur, essentially developing his own unique style of Integrative Bodywork. Bernhard has worked with and helped thousands of people in their individual healing journey and hosted various workshops and retreats. He has also been giving talks and lectures at conferences and festivals around the world, where he has been invited to speak at. His work can be found at

Laura Matsue

Laura's journey began when she went through several "dark nights of the soul," which led her to seek help in the mainstream medical system, where her complex trauma was medicated by the psychiatric system, leading her to feel worse than before. After struggling with trauma and addiction for almost a decade, she had a profound awakening experience in 2012, which led her to the spiritual path. This experience brought her towards a daily yoga and meditation practice where she continued to have profound experiences of a higher power, which led her to travel the world in search of various spiritual teachings and alternative healing methods. Since then, Laura has studied various Western psychological and Eastern spirituality modalities. Her main interests are psychospiritual and somatic therapies, Jungian psychology, psychosynthesis, and evolutionary astrology, and she is also a student of Tibetan Buddhism and somatic meditation. She has studied Compassionate Inquiry (with Gabor Mate), psychosynthesis coaching & evolutionary astrology (with astrologer/therapist Mark Jones) and Internal Family Systems Therapy (foundational program). She also works with various somatic and psycho-spiritual therapies in an embodied and trauma-informed approach. She is also a certified teacher (200hr) of yoga and meditation teacher and a certified holistic counsellor. She calls this "psycho-spiritual coaching" as she works with the whole body/mind, soul, and spirit. She has hosted courses, retreats, and workshops with Bernhard, and they have coached hundreds of people over the past five years in their work together.
