Beyond Mindfulness

Explore my work, discover the warmth of your heart and connect with your deepest potential. In brief: experience awakening through mindfulness, meditation, and self-inquiry.

My work aims at creating opportunities for people to embark on what Jung called the tremendous experiment of becoming conscious and the Buddha called awakening. My courses are experimental and focus on the personal and spiritual growth of the participants. You have the opportunity to gain deeper insight into yourself as well as into your relationships.

My assumption is that you have everything available to be complete at this moment, that you are already free. It is just a matter to recognize and trust that. The end of seeking is very close, too close and too simple.

The major methods at the core of my approach are working with  Radiant Mind, Mindfulness, Meditation, gradual and sudden methods of awakening from the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition. My work is based on a foundation of Buddhist and Western psychology, psychodynamic understanding and mindful communication.

Feel welcome just as you are

The journey of awakening heals your mind, body, and spirit. It creates harmony and union between:

  • meditation and the practical concerns of daily living
  • yourself and others
  • your mind and body
  • thoughts and emotions

I believe that each of us can contribute to a kinder, more peaceful world by embarking on the project of awakening and making peace with ourselves.
