Daniel´s life has been full of changes, deep transformations and personal teachings in my private and profession life.
Daniel was born into a family in which spirituality and medicine has been a daily experience. He has been always in touch with the belief in the Go(o)d and with a tremendous curiousity. Extensive travel experiences, especially through South America lead him to discover the realms of Shamanism, Alternative Medicine and mystical experiences. Personal relationships and the destiny of live gave him some hard teaching about life and death which empowered his quest of creating meaning in live even more and arise a few times from the ashes. Daniel´s professional teachings have been in research and educational institutions related to system science, consciousness research, anthropology, holistic and cross-cultural medicine, consultancy and management, coaching and sexual pedagogy.
Basically, his interests have been to make sense about his extraordinary experiences and to help others to move to a meaningful and healthy life.
Daniel loves life, humans and meaningful of co-living. This led him to explore various cultures, different spiritual paths, and some holistic healing techniques as well as ways of the exploration of consciousness, such as intuition, meditation and trance. He explored Buddhist mediations and traditions, like Zen and Vipassana, Vajrayana, Mindfulness, and different kinds of shamanism and guided meditative practices, he loves to read sacred or mythological texts like the bible, the Daodejing … and is as well trained up to a Reiki Master.
