The Huni Kuin means "the real people" - a name that aptly describes them, because their entire culture is connected to the rainforest. They have ancient knowledge about the healing power of plants and social cohesion; they live in harmony with nature and as inhabitants of the forest, they protect it most sustainably.
In this crucial junction of history, bridging indigenous wisdom as well as balancing the masculine and feminine is all the more important. In the dialogue today with Alexandra Schwarz-Schilling, Founder of Coaching Spirale in Berlin and Founder of Living Gaia, a holistic healing biotope in Alto Paraiso, Brazil. The joint endeavour we are exploring is building a holistic retreat centre in Brazil and preserving the indigenous lands of the Huni Kuin.
Alexandra Schwarz-Schilling is Founder and Managing Director of Coaching Spirale in Berlin and Founder of Living Gaia, holistic healing biotope in Alto Paraiso, Brazil She is also a senior coach and teaching coach (DCV) since 1997. Alexandra Schwarz-Schilling is always concerned with the big question: What is the human being? She wants to get to the bottom of his essence. She has been doing this long before she met her great passion, coaching, in 1996.
She studied anthropology and ethnology, led theater projects in Moscow, and trained in shamanism. Her experiences abroad in London and Paris, in India and Japan have shaped her; her business studies, her studies in psychology, her insights as a mother of three children - her knowledge, her skills, her experience combine in a wonderful way in her work at Coaching Spirale Berlin. Since 2011, she has been dedicating herself to her next big task: building a holistic retreat center in Brazil and preserving the indigenous lands of the Huni Kuin.
