MSC Trained Teacher (California), MBSR Teacher (Germany / Switzerland), teacher of the Mindful Schools Curriculum Training (California).
I am very interested in Council Practice (Mindful Dialogue) as a way to communicate in groups. I hold a M.A. in International Cultural and Business Studies (Germany) and a M.A. in Development Cooperation & NGO Management (Spain). For 15 years, I have worked as a consultant and project manager in development cooperation in different parts of this world, mostly in Central / South America and Africa.
To date, I am involved with the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion (CMSC) in San Diego as International Affairs Assistant and Professional Trainig Assistant (for German and Spanish trainees), and I also work for a publisher of mindfulness and compassion related books (Arbor Verlag) , as well as for their seminar part, Arbor Seminare (Germany).
Since 2012, I have taken over a variety of responsibilities in the coordination team of the European Network for Grateful Living, in support of the teachings of Brother David Steindl-Rast and the support of local gratitude groups. Currently, I am finishing my yoga teacher degree and the "Time to Tink"-Partnership course in coaching out of silence.
In my understanding, mindfulness and mindful self-compassion practices are paths to explore our connection with ourselves and with the miracle of everything that is, nourishing our trust in life, which is so needed now.
Being also a mother of three children in a binational relationship, I feel that education, health, sustainable livelihood and the way we interact in our daily lifes deserve a very intentional focus. My intention is to integrate these timeless teachings into settings with socially and culturally diverse target groups and to cooperate with teachers from other focus areas.
An important inspiration to me personally is Thich Nhat Hanh's practice: "Peace in oneself, peace in the world.“
We can start right here where we are to contribute to more peace.
Supporting each other in local communities, where we can experience living together beyond beliefs and traditions as human beings, seems to be crucial for me in these times. I joyfully invite you to co-teach with me in different settings and other countries, where my language skills (German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese) are supportive to building bridges and where we can share our knowldge and experiences with each other - aware that we are all ONE.
