Reimar was raised in Germany. Growing up, he loved high intensity sports and holds a Taekwondo Black-Belt. Through these he first experienced states of high clarity, flow and presence.
At 18 he moved to Australia to study and work in Economics & Finance. Stress, anxiety and a lifelong struggle with eczema led him to discover Vipassana Meditation. Feeling early benefits, he dedicated himself to the practice alongside his full time job.
He sits multiple Vipassana retreats every year and practices avidly on and off the cushion. He draws mainly from Burmese and Thai Theravada Buddhist teachings. Influential teachers include Culadasa, S.N. Goenka, Mahasi Sayadaw & Sam Harris.
Since COVID, he lives in Thailand, exploring Vipassana meditation and how it applies in other practices such as contact improvisation dance and freediving. Since August he is staying at Wat Sopharam as a student of Ajahn Phra Puttar.
He believes in a balanced and integrated approach that calls for a full engagement in life. First, your practice happens within your life, then, your life happens within your practice.
Inspired to share the benefits of Vipassana, he founded vipassanathome.org in September 2021.
