My professional career has been largely in economic development trying to make living conditions better for the poor. My vision is a world which is more equal, more just, healthier and happier for everyone - not only a select few.
However, through my own path in Theravada Buddhism and yoga, I learned that a big part of journey towards contentment takes place within. So I started teaching yoga and immersing myself into ancient wisdom. Due to my background in research, I am also closely following the emerging (neuro-)scientific insights into yoga, meditation and spirituality - trying to solve some of the contradiction between science and spirituality.
In my writing and teaching, I blend my own contemplative insights with the emerging scientific research, I add some "researchy" thoughts on bigger picture questions, ultimately hoping to inspire personal and social change.
