    "Achtsam Sein erhält unsere kindliche Offenheit und Freude, nährt erwachsene Weisheit und Verantwortung und ermöglicht uns glücklich zu sein auf unserem Planeten."

    I currently work as a mind-body therapist at the Clinic for Natural and Integrative Medicine at the University of Essen, Germany. My work is in research and in teaching aspects of mindful pedagogy, personality development and health at the University of Duisburg-Essen and at Harvard University.


    I am a graduate of the MBSR Professional Internship Programme at the Center for Mindfulness, University of Massachusetts. I have intensive experience in Zen and Vipassana meditation, Hatha Yoga and Chi Kung. I am also a co-author of Incorporating Qigong in Schools (in German) and author of Mindfulness and Health (in German).
