chetana annette adelskamp …

 

…moved from germany to spain in 1982. after working for many years with tourism in ibiza and mallorca, her life took a different turn since her search and destiny brought her to india around 18 years ago. it has been, and still is, an incredible transformation and never ending learning and discovery of self growth and meditation.
she is sharing her experiences together with her team through ‘bodhana’s massage and wellness centres and by organising courses and activities which empower personal growth. chetana is a reflexologist and reiki master and has been trained amongst others in counseling,  primal and inner child work.
she loves facilitating guided meditations and sharing meditation days. her mantra in these days is ‘simplicity’, letting go of all that which is not needed or feels heavy; and she is also allowing herself more and more space and time in the winter season to travel beloved india, which is one of the most enrichening experiences ever.
