The course instructor is Dr. Thomas Pressel, he is a specialist physician in orthopedics. He has undergone training as a meditation teacher, which he uses particularly for medical purposes (medical mindfulness).

Meditation training

Dr. Pressel has been involved with meditation for many years and has experienced the positive effects himself. He got to know different meditation techniques and has been practicing meditation every day for several years. He is a student of Zen Master Julian Daizan Skinner, a teacher of the Rinzai school of Zen and founder of Zenways. Julian Daizan Skinner has over 30 years of experience as a teacher and course leader in mindfulness meditation and Zen, which is reflected in the well-structured course design, which is tailored to the needs of the participants.

Qualification as a meditation teacher

Like his teacher, Pressel is very interested in enabling many people to learn about meditation techniques. That’s why Dr. Pressel completed further training as a “Mindfulness Meditation Teacher” in order to be able to teach qualified meditation in his courses. In addition, Dr. Pressel draws on his long experience as a Zen student for those participants who want to delve deeper into Zen Buddhism.

In order to make meditation techniques easily accessible to as many people as possible, he offers Courses online as a video conference, but also partly on site in Bingen am Rhein.
