“As an attorney, I have experienced – and overcome – tremendous stress and burnout and I’ve witnessed many of my colleagues struggling with similar issues. For me, the real benefits of meditation come in the 23½ hours of the day that I’m not ‘sitting on the cushion.’ I am much more peaceful inside, more loving and compassionate with myself and others, and more focused on what is present in my life. And, when stressful things do come up, I’m better able to remain centered and respond to the situation instead of reacting.”
Daniel studied in various fields of the human potential movement and received years of training in such varied fields as group dynamics, art therapy, socio-cultural animation and energy healing. At the center of his teaching is conscious breathing as a direct path to wholeness and the conscious, deliberate experience of oneness. He also pursued a career as a musician, studied and played north Indian tabla for more than 30 years and also loves the djembe, congas, and most recently, the didgeridoo. He teaches drumming as a mindfulness practice to connect with one's self and others.
“This is the time for us to co-create a new earth that is in harmony with the inner working of our true nature.”
Originally from Germany, Daniel also lived in Vienna and has resided in Phoenix since 1992. In addition to being a passionate drummer, he is also a long-time practitioner and teacher of conscious breathing.
“When we allow ourselves to release and let go, we return to who we are at the core and we are then able to get a taste of the inner peacefulness that is always there. The more that I practice mindfulness and tap into this inner beauty, the more I want to be in that state throughout my days."
