He has been a bhikkhu in the Theravada tradition since 1990. In 1993 he returned to the West and gained experience in various other Buddhist traditions. He lived for several years in monasteries of the Ajahn Chah tradition in England and at Dhammapala monastery. In 2005 he got to know Insight Dialogue (after Gregory Kramer) and teaches it worldwide. From late 2016 to early 2020, he headed the Kalyana Mitta Vihara – House of Noble Friendship in his home-town. He is visiting Dhammapala Monastery for several months since June 2020.
