Interview with Padma
The Deepening of the Capacity of Being Here Now
This interview was done by Ralf Mazen in June 2008 in London.
Nothing really given in Satsang, the offer to discover true peace, seeing through all the illusions, the benefit from therapy methods, no prerequisites for enlightenment, the roll of a guide, the search for happiness and love, crying every Sunday in the church for a year, the identity of being the sufferer, happiness and peace as a depending of the nothingness, moments of total acceptance in the life of everybody, the willingness to welcome everything with an open heart, the deepening of the capacity of being here
The use of a teacher in form of a alive person, the joy in supporting people in discovering truth, no more interest in amusements, to stop trying to get anything from live, relaxing back into what is naturally there, finding out the truth of the situation and the courage to see that truth, the death of all our self images, the willingness to see who we really truly are

Padma Wolff met her teachers from the lineage of the East-Indian sage Sri Ramana Maharishi, in particular: Isaac, Sri Poonjaji, Gangaji and Eli Jaxon-Bear, in the mid-nineties. Inspired by these encounters, she thoroughly investigated the controversial interface between psychotherapy and spirituality, as part of her studies in psychology. In particular through Eli Jaxon-Bear and the “Leela Therapy” he developed, she experienced how useful and potent the combination of psychotherapeutic and spiritual means can serve to support the discovery of our true Self – that has always been and will always be whole and intact, everything true healing could aim at. Accordingly Padma understands psychotherapy in the etymologically original and literal sense of the word as accompanying the soul back to its origin – and back into its original state.
Padma is available for Leela-Therapy and Enneagram classes based on the work of Eli Jaxon-Bear and for Satsang, including Satsangs given together with her long-term partner Torsten Brügge. Meetings with Padma are characterized by her sincere openness and warmth, as well as by her lively and clear intellect. In her Satsang, including those meetings held together with Torsten, the intensive connection with Gangaji and Eli throughout many years is clearly felt.
Padma and Torsten both have professional experience in psychological fields of activity. In their "private practice for meditation and self-inquiry" in Hamburg, Germany, in addition to Satsang, Retreats and Enneagram classes, they also offer supervision groups for people in the helping professions.
