Henrike came as a WWOOFer in December 2012 while on a road trip up the coast with her son. She stayed for a month, thriving in the peaceful and balanced atmosphere and the healthy organic environment. She moved to Murwillumbah in April 2013 and has since taken charge of the administrative side of the Krishna Village: finances, bookings, public relations, marketing, and so on. Her main focus is her life coaching practice. She holds a Diploma in Life Coaching, a master practitioner of NLP and, apart from coaching clients in her private practice, acts as a mentor for new life coaches for TCI.
Madreya is the founder and head manager of the Krishna Village. He came to the Krishna farm in 2010, taking over the farm gardens to produce fruit and vegetables for the temple. Having managed big events like the Sydney Yoga Expo and the highly successful Govinda Valley retreat previously, he soon developed a vision beyond the gardening side of things and founded the Krishna Village, building additional accommodation, an outdoors kitchen, and other facilities. His main interest these days revolves around raw food, detox, and optimum health, so healthy nutrition is one of the main areas.
