What does it mean to be an AUTHENTIC HUMAN BEING?
One of our deepest longings is “to be seen as I am”, powerful and vulnerable, joyous and fearful, shy and courageous, searching, finding, loosing, gaining…We will guide you closer to yourself, to your heart, to your soul and dreams.


For more than 30 years Ina Meyer-Stoll and Achim Ecker have lived, loved and worked at the intentional community of ZEGG. They have been deeply involved in the development of Forum, a special mode of communication to build community. Both have trained and supervised groups at ZEGG and in Europe, South America and the USA. They are united by their deep care and compassion for people and for our planet.They see themselves as constantly learning to be more authentic in their lives and in their teachings. Living in a community with a strong focus on love, partnership and transformation gives them a special awareness of these issues. They have been living in a committed and polyamorous partnership for more than 17 years.

Ina and Achim are “hands down” the best group process (ZEGG Forum) facilitators I have ever seen or even heard of. There are simply the “best in the world.” If you want to witness Masters at work, watch as they penetrate through the layers of ego/persona of individual participants and into depths of “who we really are” as loving erotic beings. They are Pioneers of Peace and Partnership, living in a Peace Building Community (The ZEGG community in Germany), giving us all hope for “Peace on Earth”. Their level of maturity and consciousness around Love, Eros, true peace activism and community is the highest I have seen.
I am forever grateful to Ina and Achim for lovingly confronting me and challenging me to look through my own phony personality armor into my authentic self.
