I was born in Steyr/Upper Austria in 1956. Part of my study (German Philology and Art History) I spent in Oslo. And I continued to travel to Scandinavia over all the years. I feel especially drawn to Northern Norway with its wild nature, where the sun never descends during summer, and where the Northern lights appear on the sky during the time of the polar night.
I am mother of a son, and until my retirement in 2015 I worked as a journalist for an Austrian business magazine. During my occupational career I have been engaged in trade union work - as employees' representative and for several years also as negotiator for the wage negotiations in our business area.
In 2003 I was initiated in the Inayati Order. From 2005 until 2009 I attended a four years' course at Suluk Academy, the spiritual school of our order in the state of New York/USA. From 2008 until 2015 I was responsible for the Zira'at activities (=one of the five branches of our order) in Austria. 2012 initiated as retreat guide, 2013 diploma in spiritual dreamwork, 2016 initiated as a leader.
But I am also interested in other spiritual traditions, especially in Tibetan Bön Buddhism and the path of the "Great Perfection" (Dzogchen), which I am trying to study during the last years.
