Originally I founded Holistika in 2007 as a second publishing house as spiritual books did not fit into the program of my first publishing house with books about pet keeping. With Holistika books, I want to make holistic thinking accessible to a broad public in my belief in a development of consciousness that seeks a different way of dealing with people among themselves and with their environment.
First, in 2008, I published “Es begann in Babylon” of my teacher of reincarnation techniques, Dr. Jan Erik Sigdell, before my book “The Indian Secret” about palm leaf libraries was published in 2011. While researching the phenomenon of individual fortune telling for today’s visitors altough recorded thousands of years ago, I myself received several palm leaf readings in several countries. Among other things, it was predicted in 2008 and 2010 that I would learn healing techniques and not only write but also translate books.
In late summer 2017, I published my translation of the book “Iyashino Gendai Reiki Hō” after completing my training in the Gendai Reiki methods with the Gokuikaiden teacher level in Japan with Hiroshi Doi Sensei. A few months later followed another book project, “Gendai Reiki Hō” which translated from Japanese into German for me. Gendai Reiki is a Reiki style from Japan that combines practices of the Western-developed Reiki and traditional Japanese techniques.
In the summer of 2018, the next publication “Reiki – Praktischer Bild-Leitfaden” by the author and Reiki master Frank Glatzer was published. Unique among the books about Reiki, the Japanese origin method of healing by laying on hands, this practice-oriented guide is illustrated with more than 50 colour photographs mainly by hand positions. At the beginning of 2019, my German translation of “Das Herz des Reiki-Systems” written by the internationally renowned Reiki teacher Frans Stiene was published. It is the first Reiki book to look at the inner essence of the spiritual teachings of the Reikik system.
For autumn 2020 a book written by Jürgen Bongard on the secrets of the Cathedral of Chartres is planned. Jürgen is an instructor at the DGH (Umbrella association of spiritual healing), runs with his wife Conny the Institute for Spiritual Healing Art in Rheinbach and has studied archaeology before.
In addition to books, Holistika also offers trips with it´s authors: in recent years with me, author Oliver Drewes (book “The Indian Secret”) to the Palm Leaf Libraries to India or Sri Lanka. In 2018 and 2019 I accompanied the trips of the author Jürgen Bongard to the Cathedral of Chartres. In 2019 and 2021 next time with author Frans Stiene (book “The Heart of the Reiki System”) and me as a tour operator/translator to Japan. There is also the possibility to participate in a meeting with the author Hiroshi Doi (books “Gendai Reiki Ho” and Iyashino Gendai Reiki Ho).
