Masterclasses, Retreats, Seminars


During her life, Tania has gathered a great deal of training and experience in multiple psychological methods of personality development and personal growth, as well as in contemplative practices and inner work. She likes to share and teach these practices, combined with her interdisciplinary scientific knowledge, in the form of masterclasses, workshops, retreats and seminars.

From Inner to Societal Change

Translating Science into Practice

One of Tania’s passions is the translation of her scientific and psychological knowledge regarding mental training, personality development and inner work into different sectors of society such as the healthcare, educational or business sectors. When giving workshops, she is keen on finding a good balance between in-depth psycho-biological and neuroscientific teachings and providing enough space for engaging in actual practices designed to induce long-lasting inner transformation towards more emotional wellbeing and better mental and physical health.

Depending on whether the participants ask for the teaching of scientific findings and theoretical knowledge or rather a practical introduction into and experience of the many forms of mental practice, Tania offers different and appropriate formats:

ReConnect Masterclasses

Masterclasses are special formats adapted to the needs of different institutional environments such as healthcare, education or business/leadership. They start with 3- to 4-days retreats and are followed by 8-week daily practices at home supported by weekly zoom coaching. Beginners’ masterclasses are followed by more advanced teaching, so that participants can engage in a longer transformative process. Masterclasses include a good balance between more theoretical teachings in psycho-biological topics and applied practice sessions.

As one of the goals of these masterclasses is to re-connect participants with themselves and with others, these retreat formats are called ReConnect Masterclasses and are specifically adapted to the respective requirements of educators, healthcare practitioners or business leaders.


The following Masterclasses have already taken place:

In-Depth Scientific Teaching


Keynotes and talks can only cover so much scientific wisdom and knowledge. Many people and institutions desire a more in-depth and detailed understanding of the scientific findings and intervention programs that can be used to induce plasticity of the social brain. Especially in the context of the ReSource Project, Tania has therefore often been asked to give one-day or multi-day workshops and seminars about the exact nature of such mental training intervention programs and the complex pattern of related findings.
