I AM EMILY, WIFE, SISTER, COMPANION OF MANY PEOPLE THROUGH LIFE AND TRAVELER.
I AM PETER, HUSBAND, FATHER, FATHER-IN-LAW AND GRANDFATHER. WITH ENTHUSIASM I AM FOUNDER, TEACHER AND GUIDE OF MANY PEOPLE THROUGH THEIR LIVES.
SOUND IS OUR LIFE AND OUR SEMINARS ARE OUR ADVENTURE.
OFFERING PEOPLE A WAY THAT CAN HELP THEM LOVE LIFE IS OUR PASSION.
FOR EACH OTHER WE ARE INSPIRATION.
To find a way for people to change themselves and their lives, we have developed life-changing programs.
Almost 40 years ago now, Peter brought Peter Hess® Sound Massage into the world. The sound pedagogy followed more than 20 years ago with the wonderful degree Emily Hess® Basic Trust - Coaching as well as the children's programs KliK® - Sounding Communication. The Emily Hess® Sound Yoga found its way into the world almost by itself, as Yoga has been part of my life since my (Emily's) childhood.
Our many travels, especially to Nepal, have challenged us to realize comprehensible and down-to-earth seminar content that safely accompanies mentees, clients and seminar participants on their path to love, health and success on many levels. For many people the certified sound methods are a door into a self-determined life.
Together we founded a seminar house in 2012, where we wanted to create a feel-good place for people. We succeeded in this with the Peter Hess® Seminar House in Schweringen in Lower Saxony (Germany).
We are now at home on a small island in the outback of Greece and have found wonderful people here who have created a dream place for seminars together with us.
When I was introduced to the singing bowls and gongs with the wonderful sound massage of Peter Hess almost 30 years ago, I had quickly developed the feeling of being at home and having arrived in a rounded life.
At the time I lived with several children who were very "behaviorally creative" and needed to experience stability with me and my then husband. The sounds of the singing bowls and the sound massage brought me back into my feelings and into a standing for myself. This gave me the opportunity to change my life completely.
In my pedagogical center, especially children showed me through their diverse creativity how the sound instruments can be used to heal the soul. For example, they use shoes to represent family members and gave them sounds with which to express themselves.
Since 1994 I have been traveling very often to Nepal, Tibet and India. There I participated in many rituals, especially of the women. This brought me back to my feminine feeling, showed me in all clarity who I am as a woman and also that I do not necessarily have to understand men. I came into contact with indigenous shamanism, Hinduism and Buddhism.
THIS CONNECTION: INTUITIVE CHILDREN I OBSERVED AND PARTICIPATION IN INDIGENOUS RITUALS AND LIFE ALLOWED ME TO CREATIVELY TRANSLATE THEM INTO SOUND SETTINGS.
Most notably, Emily Hess®Basic Trust Coaching and, most recently, The Art of Living Mentoring were created.

My central and life-changing experience was my one-year experience and research stay in Nepal. This completely changed my entire life and put it on a positive and constructive track. I gained primal confidence and was able to live MY life. This was the beginning of my wonderful development and the development of sound methods.
Born as a child of workers during the Second World War and raised in a village, I had come a long way by my standards. I became a graduate engineer in physical technology and a teacher at a vocational school. Nevertheless, I did not feel satisfied, misunderstood and struggled with people and the world. Further challenges in my life made me change my life and opened the way to Nepal.
I let my scientific "engineer's head" work only occasionally. It does not primarily determine the development of the method. It was not until the mid-1990s that we began investigations and research, all of which confirmed what we and many people had experienced positively. Shortly after that my first book "Singing Bowls for Health and Inner Harmony" was published by Süd West Verlag.
My wife Emily became a partner in the development of the methods starting in 1995.
From that time on there was a rapid development of sound methods, accompanied by many publications, congresses and researches.
1966 Graduation as Dipl. Engineer of Physical Technology.
1966/67 A one-year adventure trip to India on a Heinkel motor scooter - together with a friend.
Until 1970 - Work experience as an engineer
Until 1972 - Studies at the TH Darmstadt to become a vocational school teacher
Afterwards traineeship and graduation as teacher for electrical engineering and politics
I then worked for a long time as a teacher and teacher's aide in Bremen. Bremen offered a progressive framework for teachers, which I could use well with my students. At that time, I also gave courses on self-awareness with a colleague.
Experience contents of the self-experience groups were:
After my stay in Nepal, the sound experiences I had there became my most important professional and also health-related purpose in life.
Nepal does not let me go until today. Almost family ties let me dive intensively into the culture, especially of the Newar. The contact with many shamans in Nepal, Ladakh and Tibet have influenced me.
The Kailash circumnavigation in 2005 brought me to my limits and changed me. At 5700 m we were accompanied by a Lama ( priest) who led us through the many rituals for soul purification.
1999 Founding member and until today board member of the International Association for Sound-Massage-Therapy e.V.
In Nepal, we have been helping children in need of education for many years. Thus, we have been able to accompany some young people to adulthood, who managed to study and have a good job today.
Through the wonderful support of Jürgen Bossert and his wife Britta and many people from our sound family, it was possible to found the fantastic association
Chancen-Bildung in Nepal e.V., which today supports the people of Nepal in education and health to a great extent.
All proceeds go directly to the projects without deduction. You can find current information on the Instagram profile "chancen_bildung_in_nepal".
