Mathias Fritzen

»You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.« What Morpheus said in the Matrix felt true for me for as long as I can remember. When I was about six years of age I prayed God, please let me see things clearly. Let me see the Truth. The world didn’t make sense to me.

I was seeking in religion and philosophy, martial arts and parkour, ~2 million hands of poker, fancy clients and shiny awards in digital design, love and marriage, 726 episodes and 12 movies of Star Trek… nothing would do it. I should have been happy by then, but the splinter in my mind was still there.

It was only when I burned down everything I thougth I was that I opened up to coaching, meditation and self-inquiry. I was finally desparate enough to surrender for good. Turns out Rumi was right when he said: »I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I’ve been knocking from the inside.« What I was looking for is who I am.

I’ve been trained in/working with Energy Leadership Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Self-Inquiry, The Work, Integral-Theory, Shaolin Kung Fu, Le Parkour, Intuitive Archery, Rinzai-Zen, Inner Engineering, Mindfulness Training, Family Constellation Work, Positive Intelligence, Compassionate Inquiry and other approaches. I don’t, however, follow any system in particular.

I designed the coaching app Pharos and wrote the books Applied Spirituality and 99 Doodles for Life. I facilitate workshops and lead retreats around personal development and self-realization. I guest-lecture at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund. I support outstanding individuals with solving problems and reaching goals. Some call this Coaching.

Whether it comes in the form of an app, a book, a workshop, retreat, lecture or through coaching – my work is about raising consciousness and becoming more of who we authentically are here and now.

Mathias’ analytical skills stand out above anyone I know. He helps you to get clear and focused on your objective by asking the right questions.
