We are Sarah and Gerald, the initiators of Evano. A couple since 2004 and entrepreneurs for over 10 years. We have university backgrounds in psychology, architecture, and computer science, as well as further education in personal & mindfulness coaching, meditation and Zen.
In our mid-20s we suffered from a generalized anxiety disorder and sometimes we only left the apartment to do the weekly grocery shopping.
Only thanks to daily meditation, yoga and the constant reminder to come into the present moment and be with ourselves, we found our way out of the hole and more than that, we learned about (re)finding inner contentment.
In 2018 we decided to find like-minded people to connect, exchange, empower and learn from each other to live a life full of contentment and Evano was born.
The name Evano has a history in the Latin word 'evado' which means to evolve, to grow - a sanctuary for everybody to grow up to one's highest self.
From the first gatherings in Berlin the community grew to thousands of inspiring individuals globally.
