“Despite the many things he has to say, he knows how to listen.”
Books are not everything. By Julian Hans. DIE ZEIT 2009
“Modesty is the lowest of the virtues, and is a real confession of the deficiency it indicates. He who undervalues himself is justly undervalued by others.”
William Hazlitt. On the Knowledge of Character
“Yes, in the eyes of others I might have done some courageous things and do intend to continue as long as I breathe and hopefully beyond through what I am creating - yet the credit for that has to go to every soul that has trusted or encouraged me and courageously showed vulnerability to me in this process. I now carry the responsibility to share what I have learned: The depth of the soul is the ultimate source of all that we can ever know about who we truly are. Human nature is the only dogma, caring for where there is pain the highest purpose.”
Matthias Behrends. Message from the Founder
Starting in 2009, until today MB has conducted 200+ trainings/seminars/talks, held 500+ hrs of supervision, and 4k+ hrs of individual sessions, a good share of it spent listening.
