Expert for new beginning & creative outburst of courage

„Statt nur die Schachfig­uren, auch mal das Brett bewe­gen.”

Anas­ta­sia Umrik, born in 1987, has almost all the char­ac­ter­is­tics of a fringe per­son: Female, for­eigner, depen­dent on a wheel­chair due to mus­cle dis­ease. At a young age, she decided by hook or by crook to become like oth­ers. So much was the desire to finally arrive, to be less con­spic­u­ous and to rather sink into the masses than to be con­stantly con­fronted with her own unful­filled dreams and exter­nal char­ac­ter­is­tics. So she closed the door to her intu­ition and fem­i­nine wis­dom and was very sure: It’s eas­ier to live like this!

But the life lived for oth­ers does not go well for long. After the suc­cess of the two ini­tia­tives “ander­Stark – Stärke braucht keine Muskeln” and “inkluWAS – design, das denken verän­dert”, with which she dis­cov­ered her cre­ativ­ity, a deep hole full of tired­ness and lethargy fol­lowed. The body was also no longer dis­tracted and rebelled, refused to func­tion – noth­ing worked.

After a near-​​death Anas­ta­sia was forced to rethink her life and work and to find new ways to live out her own truth. She has set her pri­or­i­ties in the right order and has since decided to pass on her expe­ri­ences and the indi­vid­ual view of the dif­fer­ent sys­tems, struc­tures and lifestyles as a coach, speaker and author. Anastasia’s work is rarely about per­fec­tion, nor about polit­i­cally cor­rect phrases. Rather, it is about sin­cer­ity, authen­tic­ity and paus­ing again and again and lis­ten­ing into one­self: “What is it really about?

Anas­ta­sia is very famil­iar with the themes “new begin­ning” and “out­burst of courage” from her own life. In her talks she takes the lis­ten­ers on a jour­ney through the most intense, humor­ous and instruc­tive chap­ters of her life and lets them par­tic­i­pate in how she found her way to the solu­tions.
