a magical year - courageously creating change

Would you like to feel content, at ease, joyful and generous in your life right now and for the rest of your life?

Would like to discover, explore and develop your magical powers to find clarity, confidence and a deep sense of connection?

Then you are invited to join A MAGICAL YEAR, a 12-month transformational journey to release the real you and come back to inner wealth, freedom and joy.

We live in challenging times – over 60% of our physical diseases are caused by our lifestyle, in other words, by us not knowing how to regulate, find grounding and the perspectives we need to calm down and centre ourselves.

But we change that – each and every one of us, for ourselves, and to support those we love.

You can learn how if you join A MAGICAL YEAR.

A Magical Year consists of a short video introduction for each part and weekly tasks, ideas, materials and exercises delivered in text and audio format – because we all spend too much time looking at our screens already.

You are also invited to attend a monthly live Q&A and to join the Generous Life community to meet other changemakers, innovators & creatives working on similar goals and topics, and to meet, learn and grow together.

Why A Magical Year?

If you are like me, you want change fast and you want it to last.

I’ve created the content for A MAGICAL YEAR so that you can learn things once and then benefit from them for the rest of your life.

The knowledge of how to live a well-balanced, happy life has been around forever, but it has not been taught in schools, and it’s not common practice yet.

To research and try it out yourself takes more time than many of us have.

I’ve spent the last three years researching what it is we need to know, to be healthy, enjoy our lives, support others and be part of the solution and not the problem, when it comes to solving the problems our world faces today.

Which really are the problems each of us faces every day.

I’ve been studying with mindfulness and wisdom teachers, leading researchers in neuroscience and biology, as well as business leaders who are already creating the changes we need.

I’ve learned somatic, meditation and breathing practices, I’ve studied nutrition, and countless studies to learn what we can do to naturally enhance our well-being, without the need of fancy tools, which don’t ever make our lives easier, but keep us in a state of dependency.

And most importantly, I’ve put everything to practice myself and I’m successfully sharing this with my coaching clients.

But change takes time, and lasting change takes practice.

Few people can afford enough 1:1 coaching to really implement all the necessary changes in their lives.

Which is why I created A MAGICAL YEAR.

I want every person, no matter what their circumstances, to be able to learn how to live a happy, healthy, relaxed and fulfilled life.

I want this for YOU too. Especially if you are as invested in making this world a more peaceful and loving place, as I am.

Now here’s a question:

Have you taken shorter courses or classes before, but were disappointed with the outcome because the changes just didn’t last?

I see this happening again and again and I understand the frustration.

This has nothing to do with the course content not being good, but with the fact that change takes time and needs repetition.

Also, to make changes last, we need to make them in ALL AREAS OF OUR LIVES because everything is connected.

If one area of our lives is not in balance, it will constantly boycott the changes we try to make in other areas.

The last years have affected many of us. And to continue as before, is barely an option.

A MAGICAL YEAR invites you to get a restart, to question once and deeply, let go of what doesn’t serve you any more and playfully and joyfully add new elements to your life that will support you in your growth and give you the clarity, stability and calm we all need so desperately right now.

Why join A Magical Year?

Because you know that you want this change.

You want to live confidently, knowing what is good for you and how to come back to yourself in difficult situations.

You want to live a joyful and meaningful life, in which you are successful, create the changes we need and can also allow yourself to just be you.

You want to relax, feel loved and be free to create.

And I am just like you.

Let me show you how.

A Magical Year – Programme Outline

I know that you are a curious being, so I’m happy to give you some insights into what it is exactly that we will be looking at.

Each course/month consists of 8 lessons delivered as text files with exercises /pictures/ worksheets, and audio files, which are a little more personal and good to listen to on a walk, if you don’t want to read.

You will also have the opportunity to join an online-community and attend monthly live Q&As (or submit your questions beforehand, if you know you can’t make it). I recommend planning for an hour or so a week, sometimes a bit more, sometimes less, to get the best out of the programme.

And there’s really no risk, if you sign up and decide it’s not the right thing for you, you will get a refund, no questions asked.

The goal of this course and all my work is to make you fiercely interdependent.

PART I // Body // HOME

a magical year - courageously creating change


We all need a place to restore and resource ourselves.  And there is no better place than our homes for that.
In this part of A Magical Year, we will look at hidden assumptions and unacknowledged hopes when it comes to our homes and make sure to find out how we can fulfil them and turn our homes into sanctuaries.

Living sustainably, while not having to give up on what makes our lives joyful, or take up extra time or resources, will play a big role in this and every part of A Magical Year as well.

If you would like to future-proof your life, and make it more mindful, joyful, healthy, generous, loving and meaningful – this is for you.

PART II // MIND // Mindfulness

a magical year - courageously creating change


If there was one person in the whole wide world, that should matter to you the most, it would be you. Yet somehow we seem to be three – our body, mind and soul.
In this part of A Magical Year, we will look at how we can become great stewards of our minds so that it won’t bother us all the time, but instead can support our physical well-being and our soul-expression so that we grow into becoming our coherent best selves.

Learning new skills to bring your body, minds and souls in balance and practising those skills continuously, will change your life. While it might seem like you have to invest time for this in the beginning, you will soon see, that you are actually gaining time because you become clearer on your goals and can focus much better.

If this is something you are looking for, then this is for you.

PART III // SOUL // Connection

a magical year - courageously creating change


Once we’ve created stability in our homes, and learned how to direct our minds to support us, it’s time to anchor ourselves.
In this part of A Magical Year, we will experiment with finding or deepening our connection to the universe/God/life energy/Allah or however you might want to call it – in our homes, at work, and in nature.

We will start to create a compass of our inner needs, longings, desires, joys and values, and start practising connecting to them alone and with others.

If you are looking to get better at centring yourself, and strengthening your connection with your soul, your guidance your well-intentioned inner voice and all life – then this is for you.

PART IV // Body // SLEEP

a magical year - courageously creating change

How to rest & recover well

If we want to achieve great things and feel energized to enjoy what we do, we need to give our bodies enough time to rest and restore.

In this part of A Magical Year, we will look at why sleep is so important, find out how much sleep we really need and how to make sure we get it.

Again, this might seem like a time investment in the beginning, but you will soon see, that you are actually gaining time because you become more effective, energized and focused.

If you are looking to build a routine that supports your dreams and allows you to reach your goals – health, work or love wise, then this is for you.

PART V // MIND // Self-Talk

a magical year - courageously creating change

Become a kind & gentle steward of your mind

Now that we’ve already familiarized ourselves with guiding our minds, we can start to dive in deeper.

Self-love is a big topic and something we all struggle with on different levels. Yet, the practice remains the same wherever we are on our self-love journey. The more we practice, the deeper we get. In this part of A Magical Year, we will try different approaches to strengthen our self-love.

If we want to experience love and trust that others love us and care for us, we have to practice loving ourselves.

If you are looking to build a more loving, kind and generous relationship with yourself, if you are willing to let go of some of the prejudices you have for yourself and limitations you set for yourself, then this is for you.

PART VI // SOUL // Relationships

a magical year - courageously creating change

Build & Strengthen lasting & nourishing relationships

We are in a relationship with ourselves, with our partners, friends and family – each relationship has its own benefits, troubles and joys.

In this part of A Magical Year, we will explore our assumptions, wishes and realities when it comes to relationships of all sorts and take practical steps towards building the relationships we wish for.

Often it is as easy as giving what we are looking for to receive it as well. But past experiences can make this difficult, and making the first move can be scary.

If you are looking to get better at being vulnerable with others to build stronger connections, become better at finding the right words to communicate your boundaries, needs and wishes and to resolve and not shy away from conflicts – then this is for you.

PART VII // Body // FOOD

a magical year - courageously creating change

Growing, Eating and Sharing food

Food is our medicine and preparing, consuming and sharing food really is what can bring us together and help us to create meaningful relationships – with ourselves, nature and other people.

In this part of A Magical Year, we will look at mindful eating, simple food rules for health and well-being and how we can integrate food in our lives so that it nourishes, heals, supports and connects us.

Healthy eating doesn’t have to take up more time or cost more if you know how to do it right.

If you are looking to build a healthy eating routine to support your personal well-being goals – in a judgement free zone – then this is for you.

PS: This can be a very sensitive topic for many, which makes it even more important. I’ve overcome an eating disorder myself, and now love to share ways to fill this area of our lives with extra care, joy and love.

PART VIII // MIND // Purpose

a magical year - courageously creating change

Living generously and with purpose

As our journey continues, and we gain more control over our minds and spiral deeper into our connection with our souls – we can start investigating and living our values and our purpose more.

In this part of A Magical Year, we will work on our own unique compass that can guide us to live our own unique lives.

We will define our values and our purpose, and see how we can align our actions with them. We will think about the things we would like to achieve in our lifetime and start taking the steps to reach those goals

If you are looking to build a reliable guidance system that is uniquely yours to support you on your life’s journey and start living purposefully and with an actionable plan to reach your goals – then this is for you.

PART IX // SOUL // Family

a magical year - courageously creating change

Family as a resource & place to grow

Families can take many different forms and shapes these days. We can have our biological and our chosen families, core and extended families. No matter what we prefer and live, it’s important to have support systems in our lives that go deeper than friendships.

In this part of A Magical Year, we will take stock of what we have and think about what we would like to create when it comes to our families.

And from there we will see which practical steps it will take to get what we wish for.

If you are looking to strengthen your connection to existing family members, find ways to resolve conflicts or find the courage to create the family you are longing to have –  then this is for you.

Life is motion – being in the flow of life

When we look at our lives, it’s barely a straight line. It’s much more like a waltz, or a cha cha cha, or maybe it’s completely improvised.

In this part of A Magical Year, we will look at how we move through life. How much exercise do we need on a daily basis, what are our well-being goals when it comes to fitness and flexibility, and how can we move through life with joy and ease?

Life is motion and to stay alive, to be part of the flow of life we have to stay in motion as well.

If you are looking to build a healthy movement routine to support your personal well-being goals – in a judgement free zone – then this is for you.


1. Life is a Dance

PART XI // MIND // Growth

a magical year - courageously creating change

free, grounded, loving & joyful living

As our magical year comes to an end, it is time to put all of what we’ve learned together and start imaging a future that builds on our newly found clarity and greater wisdom.

In this part of A Magical Year, we will create an actionable plan of what it is that we want to achieve in our lives.

This includes preparing ourselves for dealing with unexpected situations, remembering how to resource ourselves even in difficult times and becoming directive when it comes to our life choices.

If you are looking to create a present and future that is built on growth, balance, joy, love and allows you to live a generous life true to yourself and in service of this world – then this is for you.

PART XII // SOUL // community

a magical year - courageously creating change

Strengthening our sense of belonging, means enriching our communities, means supporting the whole world

It is time to take what we’ve learned and to share it with the world. Or with our family and friends, and the people we work and interact with.

In this part of A Magical Year, we will take a good look at our role and responsibilities, and how we can develop a feeling of belonging.

What do we need to feel seen and met, and how can we let others feel the same way? What can we do to create the changes we want to see? And how can we do that in a way that brings us joy, that generates love, and that lights us and others up?

If you are looking to implement the changes you would like to see in this world and to work on them with love, joy and full resourced –  then this is for you.

I’m Verena, and I will guide you through A MAGICAL YEAR.


In the hasty day-to-day business, it can be difficult to take a moment and to use all our senses.

They are such a great support system, though, and can help us to fully experience the present moment.

The same is true for our feelings, they are here to guide us, but in order to do that they need to be heard.

We will practice both during the programme, so sensing and feeling your feelings can become part of your routine and take some of the responsibility away from your mind.

For more ease and peace of mind.


The things that bother and limit us the most are the ones we’re not looking at.

Or maybe we are looking at them and dislike them, but don’t ask them why they are there.

Usually, they have all the reason to be there, and once we find the reason and hear them out, they disappear.

Journaling is a wonderful exercise for that and something we will be practising regularly during the programme.

When we understand that even the most difficult things are here to help us, life becomes much more joyful.


Children learn what we model, not what we teach – and so do we.

When we read about something, think we’ve understood it, but don’t practice it, it remains a rumour.

The same is true when we share what we’ve learned, but not what we practice with others: We spread rumours.

The same will be true for this programme.

If you only consume the information, but don’t put it into practice, you will only accumulate more rumours. You won’t know for yourself if it works.

But you have the chance to find out, all you have to do is try.


Where in your body do you feel pain? What does it feel like when somebody is disappointed with you? Or when you are really happy?

We will put what we learn into action and start listening to our bodies more.

With practical exercises and experiments, we will learn to navigate our worlds and lives with much more ease and joy.

Nature can help us with this, and so can dance and movement of all sorts.

It’s going to be an exciting year!

Let’s get started.


How Can We Overcome Stress?

I believe that one of the main reasons why we find it hard to focus on what’s important and good for us, is because we’ve learned to silence our inner voices and instincts.

We are bombarded with new trends and ideas, things to do and not to do, and research will continue to come up with new and better ways to ‘improve’- but the question is:

What do we really need? And how can we know?

I believe the only way to know, is to try.


Many of us think that we only need one more course, or one more article, or one more workout to finally have it all figured out.

And I’m well aware that I’m offering you a course with that same promise.

But I also found out that I needed to take all the courses and learn and experience all the new things, until someday I didn’t any more.

At first, we collect, to find new examples of what our new lives, lives that suit us more and are better for us, might look like.

And only through that can we find out what we want and don’t want, and then start making it our own.

Which is why I invite you to come into my world, dive into deep experiencing and find out what works for you and what doesn’t.

You can keep what you like and share it with others, and disregard what doesn’t fit your own growth journey and situational needs.

But it’s only when we try that we can find out whether it’s right for us or not. And that always helps us to grow and to get clearer on what it is that we need.

This journey focuses especially on learning how to take good care of yourself, how to meet yourself, how to get to know yourself better.

Because if we are not stable and grounded, we can’t provide stability and ground for anyone else. If we’re not happy, we won’t find happiness in someone or something else.

Whatever it is we are looking for, we have to find it in ourselves first.

I believe that we have the opportunity to break with generational patterns of making do, self-loathing and blaming others for the situation we are in, or a lack of opportunity.

And while it seems challenging to do this work, it is also extremely rewarding.

If we don’t start to be good to ourselves, to relearn to listen to ourselves and what our body needs and our soul longs for, our children will grow up to be just like us, not knowing how to regulate and be still, and we will leave the work to break with generational trauma to them.

By looking at how we live, how to be mindful, how to hear what our soul has to say, by finding connection to ourselves and all life around us, by finding belonging in ourselves and community, by bit by bit starting to live according to our values and needs, we can find stability and a sense of calm that can get us out of feeling stressed and overwhelmed by the world and all that is going on around us.

This is what this programme is about.

It’s a bit of an antidote of a course maybe because it’s not going to present you with quick fixes or fancy new technology to solve problems for you (which as far as I know does not work), but instead I will ask you to slow down and listen to yourself.

A MAGICAL YEAR will provide you with opportunities to explore your desires and wishes, and to look at where you come from, the story you’ve been living, the present you’ve created and experience, and then to imagine what it would feel like if all your needs would be met.

I will then show you how you can take the steps, to create an actionable plan, to make what you long for your new reality.

It’s simple really, but it will also be challenging. Because you will have to look at things you’ve been avoiding and actually practice being with them and yourself with kindness.

To get the best out of the programme, you should be ready to invest an hour or two per week.

If that seems like a lot, that is OK, and to allow for it anyway will be the first achievement of this programme.

Because you deserve to spend at least two hours a week to be with yourself and to get to know yourself better. This will become an integral part of your new practice and life.

We all need this time to reflect, to decompress and to renew. Not only you yourself, but everyone around you will benefit from that. You’ll see.

If you want to live with more ease, love, joy and freedom, you will have to allow for and create the space to find balance in your life in your own ways.

During A MAGICAL YEAR, you have a safe container and support to learn and practice how that may work.


You are invited to join a private Facebook community to meet other participants, get your questions answered, and to dive deeper into related topics. This is an offer, if you’re not on Facebook, join the Q&As.


Participants will be invited to an intimate Q&A via Zoom once a month and have the opportunity to send in their questions beforehand. Recordings will be made available for those who can’t join in person.

„I had a virtual meeting with Verena, and I felt really safe and comfortable opening up about my struggles with Verena.
She is such a good listener and she shared with me a list of practical and efficient tools/solutions to change my mindset and the way I talk to myself. It was eye-opening. I totally recommend talking to her - her expertise can be a precious resource for everyone!“ - Francesco

I am at a stage in my life where I can (and want to) make a shift, but struggle envisioning the right direction to take and the action needed. Verena helped me to focus on my desires and what is keeping me stuck. Her approach is sympathetic, calm and down-to earth. It felt like she truly wanted to work with me towards my goals and my wellbeing, through small, concrete steps and kindness. She made me feel more confident, and now the change seems more approachable. – Elena

Verena holds compassion for herself and for me, listens and allows space and treats me as an equal.
She shows up with curiosity & presence, reminds me to listen to what's important to me, suggests simple, manageable practices, giving me concrete things to work with, all in one 60-minute call. Thank you again for this gift! – em

I always admired Verena's ability to bring together people of very diverse backgrounds and give others the space and the freedom to be who they are and to express themselves. It was amazing to watch her transform her life and herself and become much happier in the process. – Corinna

I’m so thankful for the email you sent yesterday about being a conscious digital citizen. 🙂 It really sparked my day and I must have agreed with every word you said […] maybe even more as I am opening up to start presenting my thoughts and work online to wider audiences, it is so important to be concise about adequate behaviour in the digital world and lead by example 😉 Thank you for reminding me of that! 🙂 😉 – Luisa
