The Art of Letting Go

How to let go? How to Detach from the Outcome and Let the Universe Do Her Thing

Did you ever…

Find yourself stressing of an outcome?, Get stuck in your thoughts?, Spiral down into the rabbit hole of thoughts?, Find yourself repeating the same vicious cycle of trying to control everything?


If your answer is “Yes” to all the questions, don’t worry, it happens to all of us.

When this happens, you need to ask yourself…


· How frequently and how long do we get stuck?

· How can we get out of it?

· How to detach?

· How to surrender and let it go?

· How to let go of thoughts?


In this video we explore the balance between detachment and surrender that allows us to go beyond the limitations of our limited mindset, stop worrying about the past or the future and open ourselves to living in the present to truly enjoy the beauty of life.

“Philosophy means Love of Wisdom."

I am captivated by the great wisdom traditions – especially the Yogic philosophies of India. It is my passion to share the practical relevance of these ancient ideas in modern life. My aspiration is the integration of science & spirituality, and a unified understanding of Eastern & Western philosophies. 



I graduated with a Master’s degree in Critical Psychology from the Free University of Berlin, where I studied Education & Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory. In parallel to my academic interests, I began in 2001 to explore the practical side of spirituality by traveling to the roots of Yoga in India. 

Since 2007 I am living year-round in Asia, where I dedicated more than 5000 hours to the study of yogic practices: 

The journey began with a truly thorough exploration of classical Hatha & Kundalini Yoga.  My practice of mindful meditation started in the Buddhist Vipassana style, learning from Ajaan Tong Sirimangalo and other masters in Thailand. 

With my meditation teachers Sahajananda & Mooji, I discovered the Oneness teachings of Advaita Vedanta. Hareesh Christopher Wallis allowed me to deepen my understanding of non-dual Kashmiri Shaivism. 

I understood how to unify these profound wisdom traditions in a simple breath-based asana practice, following the lineage of Krishnamacharya. 

Over the years, I joined more than two dozen 10-day silent meditation retreats, concluded a 49-day solitary meditation retreat in the jungle of Thailand, and immersed my Self in various darkroom Kayakalpa retreats.”
