In her book “Meditation: Body Bliss and Inner Glow”, Katrin uses 48 questions asked by her clients, to set out a natural and down-to-earth approach to meditation. “Imagine your body could talk about meditation ...,” is how she describes the book’s approach, and being dedicated to human physiology, Katrin looks at meditation practise from a strictly body-orientated perspective.
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 fulfilment, 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.
"The book was great in presenting the many different ways in which people can approach meditation for their own particular set of needs. Katrin's vast experience and understanding of the physical body, coupled with her expertise and insights into the practical applications of meditation, give an integrated approach to how well-being can be further enhanced through the use of cutting-edge meditation techniques. I certainly recommend the book to anyone who is searching for more inner peace and alignment of body, mind and spirit." Matthew D., Sydney
“I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, either you are practicing meditation or had just started. This amazing approach to meditation definitely speaks to me. I am coming back to this book over and over as it feels like the author guide you through it and give you better understanding of your mind and body as one. Looking forward for more...

"It is a very refreshening, uplifting, light-hearted yet informative book written for the heart." Haike B., Montessori Pedagogue (Germany)
"Thank you so much for writing the book ... You answer different questions from meditators and beginners in a natural and body-orientated, touching and lovely way.

"You touch the soul of many people ..." Barbara S., Sports Scientist (Austria)
"Thanks to the book, one can avoid a lot of typical mistakes as a beginner. The book is not only a very practical tool but entertainment too." Thomas R., Cultural Administrator (Germany)
The book has been published in Russia too. It was a joy to create it in cooperation with the Russian publisher.
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.
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.
