We talk about death, parting and what remains
by Laura Letschert and Julia Felicitas Allmann

The certainty that our life is not infinite can cause fear or let us feel that our time is precious for that reason. In this book, individuals share their diverse farewell stories openly and honestly through personal interviews. They invite us to encounter death in a loving way and without any stigmas. These conversations are simultaneously life stories that offer solace and strength and make us realise that our existence is beautiful in all facets. 

While reading this book you will be touched and feel empathy. You will pause for a moment, discover new things and question them. But you will also laugh, be thankful and get to know yourself better. This inspired the authors to share their own thoughts with you between the interviews: small impulses that remind you again and again and reaffirm anew to live this one life right now.

Herbarium of Feelings
An accompanying handbook for mentally strained mothers

by Anna Aptus


Mothers are often expected to be completely absorbed in their role and a “perfect mom”. However, the fact that motherhood can be very draining and even lead to mental illness is still stigmatised and rarely discussed. The author, Anna Aptus, wants to counteract that by sharing her personal and mixed impressions as a mother. She invites readers to approach their own psychological stress honestly and critically. With “Herbarium of Feelings” she offers empathetic and direct support to mothers and caregivers on the question “ Is that normal or do I need therapy?” by listing common symptoms of psychological stress and suggesting self-assessment. 

A special highlight of the book: The symptoms of mental illnesses are illustrated as plants in the form of a herbarium, lovingly created by illustrator Rebecca Carmen.

The prefaces to the book were written by the association Schatten & Licht e.V. and the psychological psychotherapist Alina Steinberg.

Just as Good!
New Impulses about being a woman, societal expectations and your own timing at 30

by Jennifer Klinge


“A homestead, a wedding, a successful career, children - and all in your thirties, please!”. This is the heteronormative template for the good life. Especially if women diverge from this path, they are bombarded with stories about trains leaving the station, ticking clocks and missed opportunities. In short: They are being told to hurry up on all levels.

Jennifer Klinge has experienced first-hand how these expectations can pressure you and your mental health. In “Just as Good!” Jennifer Klinge talks about her journey full of hurdles and successful strategies, to free herself from expectations with interesting facts about constructed images of womanhood in patriarchy and interviews with women who lead exciting lives far from the blueprint and are fabulously inspiring.

A fully honest and personal book showing that setting your own milestones and following your own timing can be just as good!

When light conquers darkness
Living with bipolar disorder, positively shaping family and relationships

by Nora Hille


A mental illness does not mean the end of the world, on the contrary: if diagnosed and treated, it can lead to the beginning of a new life. 

After the traumatic birth of a long-desired child, a young mother finds herself in a state of mental emergency, is unable to sleep at night and is overwhelmed with the task of caring for the baby. She has to go to a psychiatric clinic. The diagnosis: bipolar disorder. Will there ever be a normal, happy family life for her, her husband and their little son? 

In many touching, relentlessly open and encouraging episodes, the author describes her journey to become a more confident woman, who fearlessly confronts old traumas, liberates herself, and grows more and more into the role of a mother. The focus is not only on the person affected but also on the situation of the entire family and the family of origin.

Verified facts about bipolar disorder complement the book, as well as tried and tested strategies for dealing with the illness and positive impulses of the people affected.

An encouraging book about how to live a good and rich life despite bipolar disorder - and the enormous challenge it poses to the inner balance of those affected on a daily basis.

Thinking about work
Establishing self-reflection and mindfulness within your company
by Sandra Hofmann and Katharina Gleß


The year 2020 was intensive in many ways. Some companies have lost their livelihood through the pandemic. Others were forced to find new structures as well as redefine their true identity and their values. Others managed to take some positive aspects out of this new situation. What unites them all, is the search for what makes them unique and stable in a crisis. They are all looking for their core, which makes them strong. To define this core one has to know its values and abilities and to be able to use them as resources.

This book helps you to find these resources - through self-reflection. It contains ten interviews with entrepreneurs from various divisions and forms of businesses in the area of Berlin, Leipzig and Halle - starting from the medical field in a hospital, following coaching and consulting agencies and even so called "traditional startups". Through the eyes of the entrepreneurs we find out what it is like to live self-reflection and mindfulness on a daily basis in a company.
