Already early in life I came to the conclusion that an all-loving God would not have any need for exclusivity and would welcome anyone with a sincere heart.

After completion of my studies in Germany I was led to come to Victoria, BC, Canada, where I have lived since 1978.

For many years I studied Metaphysics and Practical Philosophy leading me to found the International Metaphysical Academy in 2009. Its mission is to "provide advanced metaphysical education for consciousness expansion through critical thinking, applied knowledge, personal responsibility and love."

Prior to acquiring a PhD in Metaphysical Science and a PhD in Holistic Life Coaching I had become a Clinical Counsellor in private practice and a Master Certified Coach (MCC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF). Later I became an ordained Metaphysical Minister with the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry (CIMM). Recently, I became certified as Spiritual Intelligence Coach for the Self-assessment tool SQ 21.

I have dedicated my life to help any individual who is sincerely seeking spiritual guidance. My overall goal is to help fill the Universe with human Souls that are pure to co-create a Universe that is ruled by peace, freedom and harmony, and governed by love and intelligence.

The Academy has become the vehicle through which to share new knowledge with anyone who feels a deep yearning to learn more.

My book Spiritually-Based Leadership may serve as a possible guide to assist the reader in accelerating personal and career advancement, as it attempts to integrate divine principals and laws as well as universal ethics that are rooted within most religious and spiritual traditions.
