THIS IS US
I used to be a manager in the energy sector. After some stress related issues, I found my way into spirituality and alternative healing methods. Seeing the tremendous effects of my energy work, I started Into the Now - helping others to get out of their own rat race and getting back their vitality.
I strive to do the things I love most and to spend the major part of my time with my precious ones: my family. I love being in the nature, doing outdoor sports, skiing whenever possible and doing yoga for my inner wellbeing.
Being free in every way and supporting others to become free is my purpose. This is what the name of my company stands for: freiräumen. I started off disliking changes, like reorganizing my girl's room or living somewhere else than in Bern, my beloved home town. Discovering my true self, I slowly lost my fears and attachments. My biggest teachers in this were - and are - my husband and children.
I love every aspect of language - how we use it, what it reveals about us and how we steer our reality with it. I am in constant awe of nature and its endless colours and wonders. I am filled with a deep gratitude for all that is.
If you want something new to enter your life, you first have to make space for it.
With his unlimited creativity and imagination, Luca transforms everything into something to play with. He loves to create the most adventurous vehicles with lego, do handicrafts or play soccer with his friends. Playing inside, he does not want to go outside. Once outside, he does not want to come back inside. Out there, water and mud are his preferred elements.
Luca combines a strong will with a soft, empathic and sensitive manner.
Lou is the youngest member of our family. She enjoys playing with her brother and winning in Memory. She loves to ride her bike, to ski and to wake up early - joining her father in his yoga sessions.
Just like her brother, Lou has a strong will and is very sensitive at the same time. She recently decided not to eat meat anymore as she can't follow the logic of raising animals just for killing and eating them.
This is IMportant to us
LEARNING BY EXPERIENCE
Today, it is common knowledge that children - and adults - only learn when they are joyful and inspired. Every child wants to learn. The way most of our school systems work today, however, does not let them decide when, how and what they learn, thus often taking away their joy in learning.
At the same time, the world is changing. Most of today's jobs will be managed by algorithms in the near future. We believe that our children need a different kind of knowledge to be prepared for this future. We are going to support our kids in their learning joyfully through experience and expressing their innate wisdom.

LEADING A MEANINGFUL LIFE
While traveling, we - Karin and Marian - will continue to work online. We want to inspire people to have a fulfilling, meaningful working life.
- Karin supports (german speaking) managers and parents in communicating in an appreciative and effective way. Our language is a powerful tool if we use it consciously. It not only reveals a lot about our upbringing and mindset, it also steers our reality. The way we talk is the way we experience life.
- Marian supports his clients to get out of the fight and flight modus, to create a joyful life model and to step into a vital life. He combines coaching methods with his experience in creating sustainable business models.
"Work is only worthwhile if it touches lives.”
EXPERIENCING LIFE TO ITS FULLEST
We want to experience life to its fullest. We want to see the most beautiful and powerful places around the world. We want to have daily adventures with our family or alone in nature.
Marian wants to follow his passion: outdoor sports, especially skiing. He's keen on riding some of the most beautiful lines in the mountains of New Zealand, Iceland, South-East-Europe and Japan.
LIVING IN LINE WITH NATURE
The environment, or better our earth, matters a lot to us. We want our kids to be able to breathe fresh air, drink clean water and eat fresh natural food as long as they live. We will show our followers tremendous signs of environmental change and raise consciousness about the fact that we can neither drink, eat nor breathe money.
We will see to it that all our travel arrangements fit into this philosophy.
this is how it started
Marian was the first to say: I want to build a mobile home for us and travel the world as a family. Inside of me, Karin, there were a thousand alarm bells going off. Fears in the disguise of questions came up inside of me: How is this possible? What about my work? And what about the children? Can we take them out of school and out of their habitual environment? Are we capable of teaching them ourselves? Can I leave my mother alone for months? How the heck do we finance this journey? And: What about my personal space? Will I go crazy spending such a lot of time close together with my family, with little possibilities to be alone and do my own thing?
But I also knew that these questions were created in my mind in order to stop me from taking a step into the unknown. So the only answer to them was YES. Yes, I can! Yes, we can. Because it is always possible to fulfill our dreams. It does not need to be a journey. It can be herding sheep on a Greek island. It can be resigning your job before you have a new one and taking a long time-out. Or it can be living in harmony with your neighbour. Whatever it is: You can do it. You can break out of the social and mental system you are so used to - and that so often keeps you in a golden cage, at least in rich countries like Switzerland. The more we have, the less courageous we become. But in fact, the only cage is the limitations we put upon ourselves. So live your dream! Not sound asleep, but wide awake.
