What is an underlying question that gives form to your work or interest in this field?

How can I fullfill my unique role in the play of conscious evolution?

What is your personal experience of collective wisdom in groups?

• As an entrepreneur: Discovering and renewing the vision of our company within all the 150 employees of our company and realizing that the result was an inspiring and powerful magnet for coherent thinking, feeling and acting within the company.

• As a facilitator of conscious development in institutions: Placing meaning and purpose in the center as the attractor for a coherent collective vision

• As a facilitator of individual unfoldment: Working with many so-called past-life experiences as resonance to collective fields such as family, ethnic group, nation, humanity and beyond.

• At the edge of conscious evolution: Exploring into the collective shadow as the dark side of One-ness, with an aim for a deeper understanding of its true nature, its overwhelming power and the human potential of entering dialogue with and integrating the humanity's unconscious dimension.

What is it about the work in this field that excites you and connects you to your own deepest self?

The apparently endless unfoldment of ever new dimensions and potentials.

Please provide a brief storyline or snapshot of what brought you to this work. Feel free to mention important work experience, transformational experiences, theoretical frameworks, mentors, or schools of thought, etc.

• Born (1938) into a family business with MUSIC as the central theme
• Performing up to traditional expections in family and business and a successful singer's carreer of my wife Elisabeth
• Conventional thinking falling apart with the questions "This can't be all?" and "Why are we here?" with both Elisabeth and myself
• A Jungian therapy turning into a path of individuation (from 1970)
• Leaving the church provokes the question "Is God real?"
• Yearlong experiences (since 1978) with each of Zen-meditation, Taoistic energy work, Past-life work, Siddha Yoga and Kashmir Shivaism, Craniosacral work, Open Space work
• Practical application of new insights in our family business, experimenting with change of priorities: "Whenever purpose and meaning of a company express themselves as true service to society, profit will follow as a bye-product"
• While still being active as an entrepreneur, start of a new activity as a facilitator for conscious evolution, first with individuals and later in business and society. Move from the city of Zürich to Autigny, a country village in the french part of Switzerland; establishment in a traditional 17th century house with a large room for concerts, courses and meditation (1996).
• Selling our family business (2000) and fully engaging into my second vocation.
• Publication of A new Spirit in Business. From Need and Fear to Love and Abundance (iUniverse, 2005) )

How would you like to be available to others in this field? What would be a meaningful connection?

• Through lectures, seminars, facilitation of individual and institutional processes of conscious evolution
• By shared exploration at the edge of consciousness
