ABOUT OUR TEACHER...
Some time ago, after exploring various forms of artistic expression,
Paul Heussenstamm, recognized himself as uniquely sensitive to the
spirit of others, and the mandala is uniquely expressive of the qualities
of those spirits. After using this intuitive capacity to remove veils
of the superficial, he is able to produce a "map" of the
psyche. By studying this "map", you can see further into
your own life,
your relationship, and your motivations.
Paul Heussenstamm is more than an artist. He is an artist, a teacher
and a healer.
