Reimar grew up in Germany, experiencing his mind mainly through movement. Taekwondo, snowboarding, rock-climbing and teaching himself backflips in his garden was the norm in his youth.
Unconsciously, he was searching for a peaceful and fully immersed mind.
Parallel to studying Economics & Finance and working in Investment Management in Australia, he discovered Vipassana meditation. Feeling early benefits, he became a committed practitioner alongside his full time job and teaching Yoga.
Since starting, he sits two to three 10-15 day silent meditation retreats per year and practices 1-2 hours daily, cultivating mindfulness in all facets of his life.
He practices mainly in the Burmese and Thai Theravada Buddhist tradition. Teachers who influenced him most include Culadasa, S.N. Goenka, Ajahn Tong & Sam Harris.
Reimar is currently in Thailand exploring body and mind through Contact Improvisation dance and Vipassana meditation.
While a formal meditation is crucial, he believes in a balanced and integrated practice, that calls for experiencing and engaging in life fully, off the cushion.
Inspired to share and introduce people to the benefits of a Vipassana practice, he started teaching in 2021.
