Seminar description

Meditation and contemplation – surrounded by powerful nature! We invite you to engage in an inner retreat and intimate contact with yourself for one week. Through an ever more refined contemplative exploration of the now, we unfold the beauty of the moment.

Food for the soul

It is a time of stillness, silence, faineance, inner retreat, contemplation and meditation. Being without having to be someone. Nothing is expected of you, there is nothing to achieve. Just listen inside and see what happens inside you.

Days of inner retreat and reconnection

Sitting, breathing, simply being there and drawing new strength, experiencing inner and outer peace. The power of the surrounding nature as well as a clear daily routine support this process. Guided meditation and silent meditations allow you to engage in intimate contact with yourself. During this time, patterns and conditioning or even old hurts may surface, it may also be that the mind gets louder and many thoughts come up. This is part of a mental detox process that for most people frees up space again for the authentic steps in life.

This is part of a mental detox process that, for most people, frees up space again for the authentic steps in life. An attitude of mindfulness and acceptance enables a deep energetic process of clearing and expansion of consciousness.

Susanne Ahlendorf and Martin Bruders

Susanne and Martin have been united for many years by the joint study of mystical texts and the fascination of shared silence. Thus they developed and lead the ongoing annual cycle “Bibles-Online” and several meditation retreats. Martin and Susanne have had a close student-teacher relationship with Thomas Hübl for over 15 years. As senior students they are involved in various projects and groups. Martin Bruders is facilitator of the Celebrate Live Festival and has been co-leading meditation retreats for 6 years. Susanne is an authorized trainer for Transparent Communication and leads trainings for practice group leaders in the Academy of Inner Science (more about them below).

About the team

Susanne Ahlendorf
practices in her own psychotherapeutic practice in Frankfurt am Main. She is a non-medical practitioner for psychotherapy and practitioner of the developmental trauma method NARM®. She has been leading continuing education and training groups since 1998 on topics such as meditation, Transparent Communication according to Thomas Hübl®, Mysticism & Healing, continuing education in an educational context as well as annual trainings “Women’s ROOM”. Since 2020 Susanne has been giving courses together with Martin Bruders under the name MakeSpaceForGrace, for a deeper understanding of the sacred scriptures and other mystical texts. Susanne has been in contact with Thomas Hübl since 2006 and has been on the team of his Inner Science Training Group (assistance group) and Core-Group since 2007. She accompanied the Timless Wisdom Training 1, 2 and 4 and gives trainings within the “Academy of Inner Science” for practice group leaders and silent retreats. She is the mother of an adult daughter and lives in Aschaffenburg, near Frankfurt am Main. Her passion and ability is to bring people together in spaces that are supported and held by a grounded and spiritual force. The connection and relationship in being human and to the creative source is natural for her. This enables the participants to take developmental and healing steps in their personal development. At the same time, in the ‘InterBeing’ of the group – the interconnectedness of all being – (a term of the Zen Buddhist Thich Nhat Hanh) a constant updating of information from the future takes place and thus the possibility of transformation.

Martin Bruders 
is a qualified social worker, mediator and coach. He worked for over 28 years as a comedian and presenter at over 2000 corporate events in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. His inner exploring expedition journey is as much about his meditation practice as it is about his daily life. For 14 years he has been studying intensively with Thomas Hübl and is a participant in his Core-Group. Especially the real embodiment of a heightened intimacy and honesty from human to human and human to God touches him in a radical way. Today he increasingly appears as a speaker and seminar leader on topics of this kind, publishes podcasts and leads silent retreats in the program of the Academy of Inner Science. Since 2020, Martin and Susanne have been giving courses on deeper understanding of scripture and other mystical texts under the name MakeSpaceForGrace. He is also the creator of the weTransform Leadership Training and head of the Integral Roadshow, an infotainment show about the integral model of Ken Wilber. Martin is the father of two adult children and lives in Berlin.
