Laural Virtues Wauters is a visionary artist, facilitator and mentor who creates safe spaces for personal healing and inner transformation. She is a compassionate guide who gently encourages us to connect with our personal and collective history by seeing the past, present and future as one healing story. Her life experience and background in psychology, art, and business, along with her training in the healing arts of the mandala and shamanic energy medicine makes her a truly unique spiritual guide.
As a child in her native Germany, Laural experienced a series of encounters with a tree spirit that inspired a lifetime of wonder. When Laural discovered that she was adopted her inquisitive nature opened the door for an epic journey of self-discovery and reconnection. On the morning after 9/11, she was once again inspired by the tree spirit to untangle the shared roots of world belief. Laural researched their origins within each continent from 40,000 BCE to present day. She saw how the illusion of separation between the self and the soul coincided with man’s disconnection from nature. Laural studied the mythical Tree of Life, as well as the mystical path of the soul. Intrigued by the work of psychologist Carl Jung, she understood why he saw trees as the archetype of the human psyche and mandalas as the archetype of wholeness.
Soon she became fascinated by the reoccurring theme found within the number 7, and its impact on world order and the collective mind. This led her into the ancient teachings of Plato, Empedocles, Phythagorus etc..as well as contemporary theories on astro physics and quantum mechanics. When she realized the profound synchronicity between sacred geometry and the seven chakras the concept for Mandala Chakra was born.
On 7/7/7, Laural left her 25-year career in advertising as agency president/creative director to pursue her soul’s calling. She traveled back to Frankfurt Germany, for the first time since she was 7, to begin her personal healing. She became a shamanic practitioner after graduating from the Four Winds – Healing the Light Body School of Shamanic Energy Medicine. She is a misa carrier in the Andean tradition. Laural is also certified by Dr. Judith Cornell (Rajita Sivananda), the author of Mandala – Luminous Symbols for Healing, as a mandala facilitator.
Laural kept a promise to her birth mother Karin, to write the true story of how they were torn apart during Cold War Germany. In 2015, Laural finished her autobiography: The Guardian Tree – the true story of Carmen Sylvia.
Laural adeptly weaves art, history, science and spirituality together to awaken and rewrite our personal and collective stories. She believes that by reconnecting with the inner wisdom of our true nature we awaken the One within all.
