About Marc-Henri Sandoz Paradella M.A.

IMG_6446.jpeg

Born in 1963, Marc-Henri studied Protestant theology at the University of Geneva to become a pastor. He exercised this profession as a life mission for fifteen years. A deep questioning led him to resign: he realized the narrowness and the fears that were at the heart of his faith, and the personal and family sufferings that were hidden behind them.

Little by little he faced his own shadows, he began an intense therapeutic work. He went through a period of ten years of doubts, uncertainties, personal upheavals, professional retraining, divorce. It was a difficult and dark time, but very rich and of great value to him.

Then he discovered meditation and yoga thanks to Evelise, the exceptional woman to whom he is now married. He trained in mindfulness meditation, then in Yoga Nidra, and then in Yoga. He taught meditation and Yoga Nidra for several years in Geneva, while working full time as an advisor in the public administration.

Following serious health problems, he discovered the immense therapeutic potential of meditation. He had no idea how essential this was going to be to get him through what was happening to him. This has really resulted in a new balance for him at all levels. It was around this time that he discovered how much he needed his intuition to be able to cope as best as possible with all these difficulties he encountered. This is what made him decide to deepen his study of tarot.

 

Everything he had learned and practiced found its place like pieces of a puzzle to introduce him into a more awakened and more aware phase of his existence, with a vital impetus and energy that he never had. had never known.

 

He has now decided to share with you the valuable lessons he has learned on this rich journey through existence.

He talks about this whole journey in his book "Toxic Jesus," published in California.
