Participant testimonials

Saša Starovojtov

Aikido instructor, Slovenia

After 20 years of focus in martial arts my body started to demand something different and the path brought me to the Archetype embodiment workshop where I was enabled for the first time to listen to myself and start journey inward. Thanks to Sandra's guidance and warmheartedness I had an amazing experience in beautiful Slovenian countryside. Looking forward to continue working with Archetypes and dance my head off.

Thank you Sandra and all lovely participants!

I am very impressed how you analyzed my character and all my life in the astro interpretation. When I read the interpretation, I meet myself again and again. Yes this is exactly me and to face up with me in such a charming, very well defined summary, is a great value for me to describe and transform my energy within this conciousness. We sometimes feel lost in the daily life and your interpretation remind me who am I. I just close my eyes, realize that I'm in present feeling myself in the light of your interpretation.

Thank you Sandra!

I realized a new dimension of personal perception of this sacred world around us. It was the first time I systematically went into exploring my personality traits in a very useful way and I think I now have an immediate“soul” map that I can turn to in the moment when I need orientation. For the most part, I find that the greatest value of your program lies in the use of dance that really comes across archetypes. In this way, everything has touched me in more and more personal way. A unique and easier way to internalize and remember than if you just stuck your head in the paper.

Dear Sandra, I acknowledge you to be an inspiration to me , my practice and my life. In your classes, in your lessons, you guided me back to the core of Dance, Love and Beauty of movement. Thank you for being a power to re- awaken. A rebirth. I love you, I love life!

Thank you, Sandra! Very nice feelings and smiles when looking at the photos :) The archetypes have actually come to life through our movement! Wow! And thanks for the interesting interpretations. For me, they are all true! In the 5th house, I had 2 archetypes: a healer and a liberator, which all belong to me. But I danced the liberator. One patient once told me that I am not healing but liberating. ;)

Dancer & Artist, Norway

I was not fully present all the time, not necessarily in a peak with my imagination and ability to share it. However, in the end, I learned a lot. For me personally it turned out to be a great gift. Especially the last few days, twisting my ancle, having the experiences in the little village, my perspective changed. I re-remembered my love for dancing. I re-experienced the moment. Coming back to Copenhagen, I have been thinking a lot about how we structure our lives, what makes sense and not. I also came back to a Copenhagen with a newly elected blue blue government. Neo-liberalism is taking over, even here in Scandinavia. It makes me question very basic things, and in a way it is confusing. What is the point if there is not the will to share/support? And many other questions and reflections, to go into them would make the e-mail many pages long. However, my point was that I believe very much that our society has a need for people like you who work hard to bring things back to basics and share that. Thank you for that.

I recommend an archetypal astrological analysis to anyone who finds himself in a situation that is unpleasant and does not know how to cope with it. In the certain period of life, I have experienced a number of difficult situations. I didn’t understand their meaning and I did not know how to handle it. Then, I turned to Sandra. Her excellent interpretation clarified certain areas of my life, that I didn’t pay much attention before. I began to understand the situation that was happening to me and everything became much easier. I started to work on areas that helped me in my personal growth and made my life happy.
