In a straight-forward, yet heartwarming way, she gives advice to people who address health problems or major stress. No matter which issue they are dealing with, be it pain, exhaustion, mental overload, sleeplessness, anxiety, burn-out or lack of fulfillment, she encourages them to find their own way through meditation by using the body's perception as a guide. A range of simple awareness tools make the book ready for immediate use.
“Without a happy body, no meditation,’ I tell my clients. I'm convinced, that there is no genuine experience of meditation without a balanced Soma.”
If the body perception turns into an allover sensory-motor fulfillment, i.e. to body bliss, then, according to Katrin, the foundation for any genuine meditative experience is set. This inner shift happens if a meditation method “clicks” with the individual nervous system including its headquarter - the brain.
“Meditation techniques must serve the individual nervous system. Someone who feels permanently tired needs another stimulus than a restless, hectic person. If this is not taken into account, effects of meditation practise are prone to remain superficial and short.”
When her clients face stress and inner pressure, Katrin favours active meditation techniques as the stressed-out human organism as a complex system does not play without preparation. As described in her book in detail, movement-related techniques include a meditative “warm-up“ that corresponds to the constant chattering mind that needs to be calmed down.
As Katrin's perspective is in line with the findings of modern meditation research, her statements are contemporary and might not only be inspiring for beginners but for experienced meditators too.
