HERE YOU WILL FIND ALL THE IMPORTANT INNOVATIONS OF THE TIME!
MY WORK AS AUTHOR AND TRANSLATOR:
2009 I started with the transcription of „The Secret of the Golden Flower“ the meditation manual from ancient China, which was translated from the original Chinese to English and commented by the renowned American sinologist Thomas Cleary in 1991. Thomas Cleary did an outstanding job with his profound comments. My English transcription puts now the comments of Thomas Cleary from the second part of his book directly as a footnote under each respective section of the original text, because the text passages can be only understood in their immediate historical and conceptual context. Simultaneously I began with a German translation.
2013 I completed the Transcription »Golden Flower Meditation« in German and English and as a supplement I also translated into German the important treatise about the bodily alchemy „Cultivating the Energy of Life“ from Eva Wong, which is also mentioned as a reference in the „Secret of the Golden Flower“. Since then an authentic and understandable basis for this meditation technique is given.
Since my translation of the extremely important treatise on longevity and immortality, „Cultivating of the Energy of Life“ who are related directly to the „Golden Flower“, more and more it opens up to me all Indian, Buddhist and Taoist texts in unexpected clarity and freshness.
2014 I also translated another new and easy-to-understand English translation into German: «Wang Chongyang – The Secret of the Golden Flower: a Manual for Taoist Inner Alchemy» which has been published 2013 by Ancient Publications from Andras Nagy.
2015 I also completed a French Transcription based on the sold-out French edition «Le Secret de la Fleur d’Or» by Thomas Cleary’s „The Secret of the Golden Flower“.
The French Translation of „Cultivating the Energy of Life“ from Eva Wong is still available under the title «Cultiver L’Energie de La Vie» in the publishing house „Les Éditions de l’Éveil“.
In 2015 I completed the transcription of the Italian edition of Thomas Cleary’s „The Secret of the Golden Flower“. The transcription of the Spanish edition I completed in 2019.
So there are 5 complete transcriptions of Thomas Cleary’s „The Secret of the Golden Flower“ (with footnotes after each section) in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
2016 I also translated my Meditation Instruction in French and Italian. The Spanish Translation of my Meditation Instruction (in the version of 12.04.2018) was completed in March 2018 by Margarita Meyer-Guerrero.
The masterful translation of Thomas Cleary „The Secret of the Golden Flower“ (Das Geheimnis der Goldenen Blüte) is also available in Spanish: „El Secreto de la Flor de Oro“ published by „Arca de Sabiduria – EDAF – Madrid, 1995, 8 ed. 2012“, and in Italian: „Il Segreto del Fiore d ‚Oro“ published by „Ubaldini Editore – Roma, 1993“.
2018 I started to translate „Cultivating Stillness“ by Eva Wong from English into German. This work is a key text of the Taoist canon and a direct deepening of the Secret of the Golden Flower.
For more than 30 years I have been occupied with the text of the „Golden Flower“ and the associated knowledge and I still see no end to further possibilities of interpretation and application. The heavenly Masters accompany and motivate me on this path with increasing support. I regularly receive new insights into the functions and capabilities of a mind „liberated from the constraints of thinking“.
In the meantime I completed two more translations of the Golden Flower: The 18th lineage holder of the Dragon Gate School Wang Li Ping explains the „Tai Yi Jin Hua Zhong Zhi“ (Golden Flower) translated by Richard Liao from Chinese into English and „Golden Flower and Kundalini“ written by JJ Semple a comparative study of Golden Flower Meditation and the knowledge about Kundalini Shakti and both translated from English into German from end of 2018 to February 2019.
To expand and deepen this knowledge, I also intensively study since 2019 the few written fundamentals that provide exact information about „Kundalini Shakti“ and describe its release and effect in detail, therefore I have also translated the most comprehensive masterpiece: „Kundalini Vidya“ The Science of Spiritual Transformation: A comprehensive system for understanding and guiding spiritual development“ by Joan Shivarpita Harrigan into German.
For meditation teachers, these text versions are of inestimable value because so far
no working basis was presented in a practical and readable form.
For some time I am writing on a »book project« MEDITATION – THE CULTIVATION OF INNER SILENCE, based on my own practice and teaching and on authentic traditions. Continually updated and published on this website since 2022 as a „work in progress“, it will later be launched in book form contribute to a better understanding of meditation and yoga in the West.
A large part of the knowledge that you can find on this website, is based on these scriptures. Anyone interested in this work is welcome to contact me. If you are interested in the private use of individual translations or transcripts, you can request them as a »PDF« against your complete address and contact details.
After 7 years of intense teaching my teaching activities have changed:
As of May 2019, after one more year of group lessons
in Uster, I no longer offer group lessons at my home either!
I now only offer individual Introduction, Advice and Support.
This form of transmission should help students to make real progress.
