Sandesh Heinicke and Anando Kirsch



Registered Naturopath & medical Herbalist (MNZAMH)

Intuitive Healer,

Organic Chef, visual Artist , Meditation facilitator


Sandesh has been involved with food most of her life. 

In Germany she lived and worked in a Retreat centre cooking for more than 100 people delicious and healthy vegetarian food.

Cooking for spiritual groups brought her to Aotearoa in 1995.

For a while she was involved in creating and running PIZZAMIA,  an iconic small and much loved Restaurant in Grey Lynn with award winning organic woodfired Pizzas.

That's why Mana Soulfood also started with food. (Lunch Catering and organic Sweets in Health food shops and on Festivals.)


Her personal journey as Meditator and Artist 

followed by different  trainings with other Herbalists  opened up a whole new dimension.

Since then Mana Soulfood is about healing with food in a much wider sense.

It's herbs and nutrition, energy medicine, shamanism, beauty , aromas and more.

It is food for the senses. 

Food for the Soul.


Holistic Life Coach, Sacred Pipe carrier, Water pourer, Shamanic Healer, Herbalist , Tree connection facilitator, Permaculture Gardener, Compost Master and Enthusiast

Anando is  a Natural with plants and has a deep understanding of the interconnectedness in life.

He has a Shamanic background, is a sacred pipe carrier and has done training in Permaculture design.

Back in Germany he created and facilitated workshops helping people to tune into trees and receive their messages.

His teaching involves Archetypes, which he understands in a specific way as primary elements of Source, and therefore able to re-ignite healing energy based on the cell memories  in each of us.


Sharing this journey is a Blessing for both of us and a beautiful path filled with creativity and love.

The beauty of the opposites coming together to enrich each other,

is one of the aspects of this Dance of our Life.
