Schamanin Andrea Kalff Portrait

Born and raised in Chiemgau, Andrea was far removed from her spiritual path, or rather her life calling, until the age of 32. In 2006, when she was diagnosed with cancer, her life changed abruptly. It was at a Shamanic Congress in Mondsee, Austria, where she was discovered by the South Korean shaman Kim Keum Hwa. She was initiated into Korean shamanism as the first European that same year. In South Korea, she underwent a Naerim Gut ritual (initiation ritual).

Living as a shaman for her means more than just serving as an interpreter and mediator between people and the powers behind the veil of nature, spirits, deities, etc. No, it means much more: It is a path of the heart, of service, of humility, of sacrifice, of responsibility, and of acceptance in the IT IS.

Andrea emphasizes repeatedly: "I am a tool of the spirits, in service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year."

Today, Andrea travels worldwide, primarily in Europe, Korea, Mexico, and Hawaii, to help and support people in difficult life situations, both mental and physical illnesses, and more.

She sees herself as a bridge between life and death. She collaborates with various doctors, psychologists, and therapists worldwide.

Andrea says: My being is the encounter of the heart, love, touching - which is not always synonymous with harmony. Often there is unrest until a person is at peace themselves. An encounter from soul to soul can indeed mean illness or stress - and yet it can still occur as a pure encounter in essence.

"If you search for a shaman or a mystic and you find one, don`t expect they will take you towards magical places or entertain you with magical tricks. Their art is to provacate your demons; those, which you are so well protecting, justifying, denying and hiding ... If you search for a shaman, be prepared ... They will undress you with their words, make you angry with their silence, stay alert when they frustrate you with their brutal honesty. Be prepared for the battle ..., the worst battle: with yourself. The one who has MAGIC doesn`t need any tricks." (Author unknown)
