Sabine Kaspari

Naikan Guide & SenTo© Practitioner

Born in Munich in 1960, mother of three sons I became self-imployed in 1988 and worked in various sectors. In 2012, together with my husband Peter, I moved from Bavaria's hop area to the beautiful Bavarian Forest. Here I feel like I have finally come home after a long, diversified and fascinating journey.

As a human being, spouse, mother and independent professional I was able to collect such diverse and valuable experience, which I could forward to hundreds of participants already.

Each single participant is my teacher and provides the chance to inner growth. Open for new things and self advancement I am pleased about each possibility, to expand my horizons - that's why life for me is always exciting.
