Alexandra Schwarz-Schilling

I was born in 1964. I am an author an economist and a psychologist. I work as a Senior Coach and an Educational Coach. I am the founder and the director of Coaching Spirale GmbH in Berlin. My work incorporates knowldege and experience from different cultures, religions and concepts. This supports me to be aware of complex coherence. I feel strongly about the earth. In many areas of life I long for a culture that is more human, more charitable not only towards humans but towards all life. A lot of things we do seem to be normal to us, but they are not natural at all but rather hostile to life and destructive. I am committed to more balance among the female and the male principle, in every human beeing, as well as in our economic, political and social structures and in the world as a whole. It is all interconnected. Living Gaia is my life-task.

Magdalena

I'm Alexandra's daughter, I was born in 1990 in the U.S. and grew up in Berlin. After fnishing school I travelled for 6 months in Brazil and learned Portuguese. In 2009, I lived 5 months in Tamera and participated in ​​the Ecovillage-Design-Education. This is also where the vision for Living Gaia was born. I want to create spaces where people support each other in trust and transparency to reconnect with the origin (Gaia) and feel themselves part of her again. Amongst other reasons, I choose community as a way of life, to enable an experience of connectedness between people, which carries through fear and mistrust. For me Living Gaia is place where people research what it means to live in balance and harmony with yourself and the environment around.

I am the Guardian of Living Gaia.

Community building

Since a Community is like every living organism a self organizing system, we are presently in the stage of forming a new layer around the nucleus. Slowly but steadily individuals feel attracted and join so to speak the orbit. This process takes place at the moment and we are curiously and happily looking for who is coming and where he is taking his place in the whole. This process is going on simultaniously in Brasil and in Germany, that makes it really special.
