Steffi is also conducting her own research projects. For example, she is interested in current perspectives on reality, in experiential quality and causes, and in a wide variety of physical, structural, psychological and philosophical tools.
Furthermore, in collaboration with Hochschule Düsseldorf, she is exploring into the possibilities of new augmenting technologies to support personal health, well being and methods to aid self healing. Both Education with technologies as well as Imagination and Magic are explored fabrics of these supportive tools.
Last but not least, by current certification trainings and experience, she is diving deep into various aspects of trauma therapy (SOMA, TRE), and embodiment(FEC, CEC).

She loves:
learning about science, as well as about tools and practical applications;
experiencing and conceptualizing the richness and potential of complex systems (among others people, groups);
– digesting, reflecting and presenting the many possible perspectives on our, seemingly, one ‚reality‘;
– empathically inspiring people to develop game-changing new ideas, clear-view-points, and tailored solutions for topics in their work, life, and projects.
