About Johanna Schuh

Naikan guide since 2000, foundation 2005 and since then director of Insightvoice Naikan Training Vienna

Practicing Naikan creates clearness, understanding and peace in my inner world. Guiding Naikan makes me feel deep respect for each human being, gratitude and joy.

The Naikan method has touched me deeply when I attended my first Naikan retreat. It meant so much more to me than a one week training of self-reflection. Since then Naikan became a solid ground to my way of life.

I guide Naikan in the following languages: German, English, French.
