Guide: Andrea Azize Guvenç
I was born in Essen, Germany in 1957 and grew up there.
I am an occupational therapist and worked for many years in Germany and Austria in different institutions and my own practice.
In 1994 I met Dr. Güvenç with the Ancient Oriental Music & Movement Therapy (AOM), which was embedded in an open, far-thinking and practicing Sufism. Both impressed me so much that I did the AOM training and turned to spiritual practices.
In 1999, Dr. Güvenς and I went to Turkey. From then on we lived, worked and traveled together until my husband’s death in July 2017.
For the group Tümata (Turkish music in research and presentation) I work internationally as an organizer, singer and dancer.
