Introductory Description: 

I grew up as one of 6 children in a rather traditional  German family, but my father happened to be a devotee of Ananda Mayee Ma. I met her in my early teens and found myself on an inner journey that let me to the Diamond Approach 20 years later. In between my search brought me to ecology and philosophy. After studying forestry, I worked for some years as a consultant for soil ecology and organic agriculture. Together with my beloved wife Jutta, I live on a farm in Bavaria and we are blessed with three kids, who are grown up by now.

What have you learned as a result of studying the Diamond Approach?: 

That becoming fully human is a lifelong journey.

That not-knowing is the boundless ocean, which gently embraces the tiny island of human knowledge.

What would you like your potential students to know about you as a teacher of the Diamond Approach?: 

nothing special

What attracted you to the Diamond Approach?: 

In the early nineties a friend gave me Hameed's book "Void", and it took me straight into the first DA group in Europe, which at that time was taught by Karen Johnson, Alia Johnson, Jessica Britt and Duncan Scribner.  Karen still leads it. Finally, I had found a place, where my crazy questions make sense.

What is most important for people to understand about the Diamond Approach?: 

there is no general rule since the Diamond Approach values the individual as much as the universal.
