Nora Eckert:

Marlaine Mädger:
Uwe Marlaine Mädger is my name, the first names deliberately without a hyphen as I see myself as non-binary between the genders. I grew up in Berlin, studied agriculture in Göttingen and worked as an urban ecologist in Bremen for 27 years. I moved back to Berlin 9 years ago and started supporting TrIQ 6 years ago. Not being stuck in any of the binary patterns has the advantage of being able to empathize and mediate with all people, so I mediate between genders and generations when asked. I also support people to move their Qi to become / stay healthy, I have been a taiqi person for over 30 years. How is it for me to take responsibility for my health, my age and my death. So I am organized with 2000 other people at artabana as an alternative to health insurance and with the idea of finding ourselves differently in old age, for example in communities.
