For several years, I have been particularly engaged in traditional European medicine (TEM), as well as ancient traditional European or "shamanic" healing methods. In 2011, I successfully completed the three-year Mütternacht im Labyrinth shamanically inspired training with naturopath Hildegard Fuhrberg.

As part of the annual "GesundeHunde Treff" event that I organized for 12 years, I had the great opportunity to meet the following speakers and participate in their lectures and seminars: Juliette de Bairacli Levy, Dr. Erik Zimen, Gudrun Feltmann, Dr. med. Vet. Tom Lonsdale, Jan Fennell, Prof. Ronald Schultz, Monika Peichl, Prof. Dr. Leo Peichl, Ilka Reinhardt, Michael Grewe, Petra Stein, Dr. Udo Gansloßer, Vera Biber, Mogens Eliasen, Elli Radinger, Sally Askew, Hildegard Fuhrberg, Helmuth Wachtel & Marc Bekoff.
