Some life stations
After studying psychology and philosophy at UCC-Cork, I became aware of the limitations of conventional studies and felt a deep need to explore and experience alternative methods of personal growth and inner transformation – ultimately connecting the scientific with the intuitive.
Inspiring were in the early 70’s seminars with Stanley Krippner, which helped me to more clarity. Moshe Feldenkrais made me aware in 1976 that I have a body – and how this joy can be translated into dance. Frank Hatch gave me my 1st Rolfing session in 1976. Jack Painter showed me what a free and at the same time long breath is.
Intensive experiences with bodywork over the last 38 years. During over 12-year stays in India and Taiwan I had deep experiences and insights.
Training in bodywork, such as Rolfing (Pre-Training with Robert Schleip), Rebalancing, Milton Trager Work and Craniosacral Bodywork. Intensive work in ARUN Conscious Touch with Anubuddha.
Individual acupuncture training in the Tung tradition with Master Netra Chou in Taiwan. He taught me in a ‘One to One’ training and taught me the dance of the needle.
1 year training in Spiritual Coaching with Dr. Klaus Peter Horn.
For over 20 years of intensive practice, training and management of the “Awareness Intensive” (Who Am I ?) process. This Koan practice represents the core of my self-reflection, and has a special influence on the quality of my touch, which is present and unintentional.
bodywork in the USA, Sun Valley Idaho, with Demi Moore, Donna Karan and others; intensive acupuncture practice in the slums of Yerwada, Pune. Further travels and invitations in Switzerland, Italy, Ireland, Taiwan, Sweden, and since 2005 active in Germany.
Intensive cooperation with Paul J. Kohtes in “Zen for Leadership” seminars at Benediktushof and Düsseldorf.
Don’t look for God in the sky;
look within your own body.
Awareness gives us the freedom to
make a choice.
Movement is life.
The quality of a person’s movement
also describes the quality of his life.
You are the sky.
Everything else –
it is just the weather.
Acceptance is transcendence.
The first thing is the body. The body is your base, it is your ground, it is where you are grounded.
To make you antagonistic towards the body is to destroy you, is to make you schizophrenic, is to make you miserable, is to create hell.
You are the body. Of course you are more than the body, but that ‘more’ will follow later on. First, you are the body.
The body is your basic truth, so never be against the body. Whenever you are against the body, you are going against God. Whenever you are disrespectful to your body you are losing contact with reality, because your body is your contact, your body is your bridge.
Your body is your temple.
