A Magical Year // Courses
Do you experience overwhelm, stress or anxiety and don’t really know how to change that? Then you’re not alone.
We live in challenging times and 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.
Often we simply don’t know how to create the necessary and usually simple changes it takes to balance our lives. But no worries, you can learn all of that in A MAGICAL YEAR.
This programme is designed with people like you, activists, changemakers, innovators and creatives in mind: Busy & smart people who believe in making this world a better place.
If you want to learn what it takes to start taking really good care of yourself so you don’t burn out and can continue to create the changes we all need with ease, joy and in your full power, then this is for you.
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 staring at 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.

Who am I?
I’m Verena and I was born in the 80s in Hamburg, Germany, where I also grew up.
I’m now a coach, author, speaker, explorer, artist, house renovator, dog and plant mum, friend, cook and many other things.
I live in Germany, but also spent some time in the US and lived in Ukraine for two years.
I used to be a DJ with a weekly radio show at a local German radio station, and deejayed in bars, clubs and at festivals and bigger events.
I have organized and hosted many events myself, including exhibitions, festivals, film nights in Germany and Europe and ran an LGBTIQ NGO for more than ten years, while also working as a web designer, helping people relocate to Germany for work and supporting people in an assisted living community.
While that might have looked like a happy, successful and fulfilled life from the outside and while I very much tried to make it seem that way and tried to believe that it was – that didn’t make it so.
I kept up a facade, did what, I thought, was expected of me and secretly dealt with addictions, fear, anger, depression and a lot of confusion and frustration.
Then this magical day came, where I simply said, no more, and I feel very lucky that my body didn’t give up, before I gave up that lifestyle.
As I said above, 60% of today’s physical illness is caused by lifestyle choices and I’m quite sure it would have only been a matter of time for me to develop a severe physical disease as well.
On that magical day I quit drinking, smoking and late nights and began to learn about healthy living.
As a result, a new life, maybe less glamorous, but much more authentic, happy and joyful started to unfold.
For me, it all began with changing what I eat. I then, bit by bit, realized that I had to look at every aspect of my life to find balance, grounding, love and energy as all parts are interconnected.
This course, the accompanying book and my work as a coach in general are the results of three years of intensive research, an Inner MBA, the Heroic Coaching programme and built on the foundation of me being trained as an anthropologist, a lifelong interest in human development and lots of newly found love for this world and for you.
You will learn more about my life’s story in the course, as every part requires some introspection, and I will share mine with you as well, wherever it is useful.
Generally, there are a couple of presumptions that I base my work on, which you will become more familiar with during the programme:
- We are our own best friend and 100% responsible for our own lives.
- Every person is acting the best way they can in any given moment and deserves to be met with love.
- The choices we make when it comes to food, sleep, exercise and self-talk have an effect on our physical and mental well-being.
- Most of us don’t know what it means to live healthy lives, that are good for ourselves and the planet – but we can all learn everything we need to do so (and this course will provide you with all the necessary basics).
- When we start seeing our lives as our souls having a body experience, we can reduce a lot of pressure and start to see life as a wonderful experiment not for us to endure, but to explore, direct and enjoy.
With this being said, I’m very much looking forward to spending the next twelve months with you and I’m certain that this will be as life-altering for you, as the last years have been for me.
YOU ARE UNIQUE. YOU ARE PERFECT. YOU ARE A GIFT.
And I can’t wait to meet you.
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?
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 which I’m hoping to present you new ideas and tools to bring more ease and joy and love into your life.
And I love taking courses and learning new things, and reading and new research – there’s nothing at all wrong with that.
What’s wrong is how we react to it, and that is what I want to help you change with this course.
As I said above (in the about me part), we have to become our own best friend, which is why we have to learn that our well-being comes first.
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 can also be difficult. 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 be part of your new practice.
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 it and create the space to find balance in your life in your own ways.
In A MAGICAL YEAR, you can 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
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
