"Born and raised bilingually (English/German) in London, I have spent most of my life in Switzerland, with a short stint in Holland in between. For a living I work as a language teacher, translator and interpreter. I am a qualified meditation teacher and spiritual director at home in both Christian and Eastern traditions. My approach is trans-religious, encompassing all that is good and beneficial in spiritual and secular insights and that can be put to use in our practical, day-to-day life."
