Birgit Baader grew up in the Black Forest, surrounded by natural power places and energy portals that had been honoured and nurtured by many human traditions. From her mother she learned a lot about herbal medicine, her father shared his deep connection and love for "basic universal things" such as gardening, conservation and star-gazing with her. Reconnecting with her Celtic heritage, Birgit learned from ancient stone and forest beings as well as from other teachers in the lineage of Wyrd and has been walking with spirit since she can remember. She currently has her base in Aotearoa (New Zealand), in Kina/Tasman. Birgit is an internationally operating author, speaker and seminar leader (women & youth work, holistic health, conscious birth, spiritual business), co-founder of Ako-A-Rongo Charitable Trust (holistic education), and brings 30 years of experience in assisting people in the education and health sector. She currently teaches and works from her own clinic in the Tasman region as well as internationally. One of her main intentions is to assist others to (re)connect with their inner power center and their innate "dream power" to find balance and inner peace and to feel the interconnectedness of all life. http://www.birgitbaader.com/ http://www.moemoea-dreamspace.com/ http://www.power-tools-for-power-kids.com/
"In times when children and teenagers are increasingly challenged, showing increasing symptoms of trauma and distress, Birgit Baader provides a hands-on practical guide for parents and teachers to strengthen their intuition and overall resilience." "This book speaks to the kid in all hearts. It is not only for children, but for anyone who would like to remember how to connect more deeply with themselves and their surroundings. It encourages us to explore our feelings with an innocent curiosity, to trust and listen to our own innate wisdom and above all to play and dance in life with childlike wonder. Each page is encoded with magic and between each word there is a soft, gentleness guiding us home. Birgit's commitment and passion to empower others is clearly evident in this book and I know Power Tools for Power Kids will be treasured by many."
