About me

Learned craft, exploratory spirit and silence

Personal

 

Growing up close to nature in the Tyrolean mountains has shaped me a lot and was a healthy framework for the sensitivity I was born with. I started practicing Zen meditation when I was in my early twenties. When I walked the Camino de Santiago in 2005, I experienced a deep anchoring in movement - also in the sense of the moment-by-moment practice, which has been an important part of my mediation practice ever since. For me, life is meditation, every moment and every other person are my teachers and sitting still is also an aspect of it.

 

In 2010 my son was born, who gave my life a new form of grounding, especially in relation to my surroundings. Since then, my "main exercise" has been to be with people and yet practice self-contact at the same time. And to be with what is even under challenging circumstances. 

 

Being gentle, and staing curious with my mistakes helps me a lot. All my life I am learning.  Being able to relax into my own inability brings ease and freedom.

 

Gratitude and bowing to life: a practice that always makes it exciting, as I repeatedly come up against the limits of my ability to love. This is the core of my work: where heaven touches earth, where one person touches another, where love touches pain. I love being human and I love life, even if it sometimes demands a lot from me. I'm here.

 

Being anchored on site and still feeling connected over a great distance: I have been intensively dedicated to this practice since 2014. This is how I manage to combine my parenting and my work. I live in nature with my son and yet I am connected via the Internet to study and work. From my base camp I like to travel further distances to also work in personal contact.
