Born in Switzerland, Beatrice (Bea) has had the gift of mediumship since childhood with access to the spiritual world (ancestors, angels, spirit guides, spiritual helpers). She painted her first mandala at the age of 7 on a stone, but at that time she did not know what this meant for her or where this would lead her. In later life, Bea was able to combine spirituality and painting, and so today her mandalas (healing pictures) come into being in connection with the spirit world. A few years after her training as a medium/healer she decided to spend 1 year in England to deepen her knowledge. Here, she attended various further education courses at Arthur Findley College and has become self-employed as a medium and artist, accompanying people on their way. This experience has touched her deeply and shown her that this is her true calling.
Bea works in a spiritually-process-oriented way to support people with life counselling, energy work, guided meditations, personal mandala healing pictures and various painting courses.
Bea often travels to India and works from there as a base. This has helped her to develop a deeper spiritual awareness and strength which has further refined and enhanced her consultations and courses.
Bea says –
“It is my wish that you find clarity, healing and fulfillment in your life. Blockages and entanglements can be solved, questions clarified and pain alleviated so that holistic healing can happen, self-love and self-esteem can be strengthened, and you can master your everyday life powerfully and with joy.” You can read more about Bea on her website at – www.healing-mandala.com

Thank you so much for introducing me to India. It has been a wonderful experience in so many ways – the countryside, the temples, the food, the company of like-minded travellers. Your care and spirituality allowed me to open up to it all.

Thank you for making my trip to India such an enjoyable one. The tours that you run are wonderful and it is comforting to have such a caring person run them. I had an experience of a lifetime and will never forget my time in the South of India with you and your group. Everything about the trip educated me, helped me grow and taught me what really matters in life. Thank you again.

I really want to thank Touch of Spirit Tours for making my trip to India so memorable and such a wonderful experience. I had my apprehensions about coping and really being out of my ‘comfort zone.’ I had visions of getting seriously ill or being mugged. Instead I found the Indian people were truly lovely, always smiling and willing to help. We had so many adventures in such a short time and you went out of your way to make sure that we were happy and enjoying ourselves. Nothing was any trouble and I personally appreciate the attention which was given to every detail.
