For twenty years, meditation has been my main passion. In that time, I have studied, evaluated and practiced dozens of meditation techniques.

Beginning with guided visualization, self-hypnosis and biofeedback in my teens, I progressed in seated Zen. I followed the practice of zazen and shikentaza. I also learned Mindfulness and Vipassana. Building upon that foundation I started a devoted and regular practice of Taoist meditation. I practiced two approaches known in some circles as the Fire Path and Water Method.

It was while practicing the Inner Dissolving process of the Water Method in retreat, that I experienced a profound meditation awakening that finally healed my soul and set me free from my suffering. I have been practicing the Water Method and Taoist Alchemy practices for almost fifteen years.
