I live with my family in Austria.
I have worked as a schoolteacher for 35 years and retired in 2016.
I have been student of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu since 1977. In 2000 I became the director of the Shang Shung Institute Austria and in 2017 the president of the Shang Shung Foundation.
I became an authorized instructor for Yantra Yoga 1st level in 2002 and an authorized instructor for Santi Maha Sangha Base Level in 2010.
