Since 1990 Buddhist in the Diamond Way of the Tibetan-Buddhist Karma Kagyu School and student of Lama Ole Nydahl


I have the exceptional opportunity to bring meditation into all aspects of my life.

Since 1994, at the request of my teacher, Lama Ole Nydahl, I have been using my free time to teach Diamond Way Buddhist Meditation worldwide.

In my scientific work I explore the psychological and neurophysiological effects of meditation and am engaged in applying meditation and mindfulness in different secular contexts. Together with colleagues and co-workers I developed several meditation/mindfulness programmes, including for organisational contexts (Mindfulness@Work), Mindful Eating and Mindful Ageing.

In my first book “Flourishing: Welches Glück hätten Sie gern?” (currently only in German) I demonstrate the connections between Positive Psychology, Neuroscience and Buddhist Meditation. In my blog www.meditation-research.org.uk you can read about the latest developments in meditation research.

With establishing our Timeless Impact Academy, my long-cherished wish comes true: to bring more depth into secular meditations offered around the world and to ensure that people interested in meditation are guided by well-qualified experts, firmly rooted in their own experience with meditation.
