Originally trained as an architect in Germany, I have lived many lives: musician, artist, creator of the Yantra Deck (a spiritual card game), body worker (I run seminars on a special type of breathing that enhances wellness). Throughout my life I have traveled to India many times. These days I go back and forth to Europe where my 101 year old mother still lives. And to Mexico where I am working with friends to put together a retreat center. I spend my summers kayaking down various Northwest rivers: Skagit River, Black River, Deschuttes, Nisqually, Chehalis, Yakima. I built both houses on my property, lovingly laying each stone tile and nailing each piece of wood. My property is my life's work as an artist, architect, and person in tune with nature.
