MANEREIA is a bhakti yogi and a mystic who channels strong energies of love from the universe that transform both him and the surroundings. Manereia loves to sit in front of an altar singing mantras or meditate. The nature is his best altar. When Manereia does not work as an engineer, he is often out camping in the wilderness or inspires others by performing different spiritual activities.
Manereia mainly teaches intuitively when he shares his knowledge and insights. His teaching is not only verbally but also energetically transferred. His daily practice is to connect to the life force and natural wisdom found in nature and from there expand and merge with the universal life force that he often names God.
In his awakening process the arising of the kundalini has played a major roll and he has developed experiences and methods of how to integrate the strong kundalini process into his everyday life and how to effectively use it for healing.
Manereia has been trekking and camping in the forests and mountains since 1979 and is a very good and trustworthy nature guide. He has spent lot of time on his own in this particular area that now will be visited and has become very well connected to the forces and spirits in this very special area.
Manereia as a person and his teaching is at the same time powerful, caring and respectful. Full of wisdom and knowledge from his own experience and from different ancient traditions. I also appreciate his connection both to the mystic side of life as well as everyday family-life.
Manereia teaches from a very deep and profound love that is rare to find and his energy transmissions are beautiful, strong, and healing is so many ways.
