I initially studied business administration and, after completing my studies, worked for many years in a large bank in various departments and positions until I became very ill.
It was a time in my life when I presumably had everything I had ever wanted in terms of material things or experiences I had dreamed of. My illness was an impulse for me to deal with myself for the first time in my life. Who am I?
All these years I have been always running and running and had gained so much distance from myself that I didn’t even know what I was really enjoying. I started looking for myself and so I came to yoga. Yoga helped me incredibly to develop an awareness for my own body. Later I also did a training as yoga teacher.
By a ”coincidence” I came across the topic of meditation. The practice of meditation fascinated me immediately and I tried many different techniques. Especially the Active Meditations™ of OSHO® had an unbelievable impact on myself and consequently also in my environment. Life has taken on a completely different quality for me. Unexpected abilities began to develop. A lot of creativity was released in me.
Motivated by the experiences and developments, I went deeper and deeper into meditation. I have done various Meditative Therapies (OSHO Meditative Therapies™). Today I facilitate some of these processes myself.
I decided to leave the bank and started to study philosophy again with a minor in culture/language/literature. During my studies I intensively dealt with Asian cultures. I also worked in a start-up company, mainly in marketing and conducting workshops for clients. My personal journey took me to India, where I spent significant amount of time in a meditation resort.
Even today meditation is an integral part of my everyday life. Meditation and work are not contradictory for me – quite the reverse. Meditation gives my work a completely new quality. It ”costs” me no time, but gives me so much energy that I can work in a completely different way. For me it’s not about following a certain philosophy or world view, but to make my own experiences & to discover for myself what’s inside of me – to go my own, individual way.
