Emma & Carlos met online, not on a dating App, as neither was looking for a partner at the time. Carlos in Canada, and Emma in Germany were practicing meditation at the very same time. This App let them know of this fact, but most importantly, it allowed them to send the message “Thank you for meditating with me” at the end of the session. This is how it all started…

Emma began her meditation practice over 30 years ago, she is a certified MBSR trainer (mindfulness based stress reduction) and a trained teacher for Mindful Self compassion (MSC).

For the past 15 years she has taught mindfulness and self-compassion courses, coached individuals and run workshops in her own practice in Munich/ Germany (Practice for Mindful Living) and at various public Organizations and private Corporations.

In 2018, she became a certified Shinrin Yoku practitioner in England. She is a co-designer and guide of the Forest Therapy program in Bavaria, Germany.

Meditation made its appearance and a transformation began. Then, he met Emma…
