My book



This is the tale of a woman’s journey from classical music to reading coffee grounds. Sharing her insights on the mysterious inner pulse that weaves magic into each of our steps, it also offers helpful experiments for those readers who wish to experience this in their own lives, focusing on images as a useful tool for communicating with universal intelligence.

As a teenager, Tessa Richter gets high on classical music. Even smoking hash cannot equal this experience. Studying music to become a professional musician, noone speaks of this. It is all about the right technique, intonation and dexterity. This launches her quest for inspiration, spirit and meaning in a modern world, and takes her to India, Nepal and the Native Americans, where she experiences how culture and cult are linked together. All the while exploring other states of consciousness, such as meditation and shamanisitc trance, both in in the West and the East. She learns about modern physics as a basis for another view of the world, and starts a career as an artist, where she discovers the power of images, colours and symbols. Starting out originally in search of inspiration in music, she finds that spirit is everywhere, not just in art.

If we invite it into our lives, it will guide us, inspire us and make our lives worthwhile... Tessa Richter now lives in Switzerland, near Zurich. She has been featured on national and local Swiss TV and radio, and on German TV. Besides doing coffee ground and tea leaves readings for events, privately and on skype, she also gives courses, works as an artist and as a coach.
