Holger Brandt

Since childhood Holger has been a passionate gardener and musician (HOLYG).

While studying for his bachelor degree in Horticulture Science at Humboldt-University, he was driven to make intensive studies in the field of Holistic Life Sciences venturing into the field of Vedic Science.

Inspired by Dr. Ulrich Mohr MD, he tapped into the science of simplicity and mind-body-medicine.

In addition, he finished his Master studies in organic agricultural management at the University of Sustainable Development Eberswalde, while developing his entrepreneurial skills in the field of organic food.

Through his life experiences he gradually became more and more uncomfortable with his role in society.

As a consequence of this he has been flowing naturally toward a more authentic and simple way of living. 

Now he is living on a small-holding farm where he is able to apply his knowledge about organic horticulture, while being a father and mind-body-medicine-coach (LifeScience & Spiritual Coaching).
