She sees life as a process and Karmapfad as a pioneer action, with which she would like to show companies, travellers and whoever is looking for something meaningful , what is possible to realize and how we can re-create harmony between man and nature with simple acts .
The interaction of mind, soul and body can create great things – if we want. Where there is a will there is a way – even if it is rocky, it is still a way. Being an organizational talent, Mandy plans and directs the school project step by step, from the depths of the foundations in the ground to the heights of the roof, tie up in the Himalayas. Mandy has already conceived and launched numerous social projects around the world in the past. These were almost local and served, in a way, as a kind of warm-up for the bigger Karmapfad project.
Karmapfad is the first major, sustainable project, Mandy is guiding and directing worldwide. For this reason, she does it with a big heart but also with mindfulness and steady steps. Since she always wishes to work on behalf of light and in harmony with the cosmic laws, she is constantly worried that everything she does serves to enrich the big picture. Mandy opens with this quote the first page of her children’s yoga book and offers with Karmapfad a model for future similar projects:.
We are the future. Our actions invariably affect everything.
With her projects, Mandy wants to create consciousness: after all, we are all in the same boat.
