In the teenage years a profound curiosity awakened for knowledge and led me to the teachings of the Buddha and Padmasambhava. I had the immense fortune to learn the wisdom tradition from many living Buddhist masters. My main teachers are the great Dzogchen master Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and his son Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche. Their teachings enabled me to translate lectures and original scriptures.


In 2010 Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche appointed me with the task of teaching the Dharma. During meditation retreats I emphasize the discovery of a simple and natural presence to help people to know their mind and the freedom it brings. This simple way of being allows for unfolding the noble qualities of compassion, love and insight.

Today my main activity is through books, lectures, meditation retreats and private guidance. I am also editor for LEVEKUNST art of lifeEssays on various topics.
