Martin has been meditating for more than 30 years. 14 years ago he came across this particular form of Vipassana meditation and it was a life changing experience.
He subsequently spent years practicing in Northern Thailand often going straight from one retreat into another.
Soon he was asked to assist in leading retreats by revered teacher Thanat in Chom Thong in Thailand and Phra Ofer in Isreal under the authority of the venerable Ajarn Tong Sirimangalo coming from the Mahasi lineage.
In 2008 martin was asked by his teacher to set up a Vipassana meditation centre in the mountainous region of Pai.
His years of experience in leading retreats show especially during the ‘report times’ (private daily talks between the teacher and the retreat participants) where he helps the students through their challenges with his compassion, characteristic humour and deep understanding of the processes they are going through.
In the last years Martin has also organised and taught retreats in Northern Italy, England, Wales, Israel, France and Austria.
