Miksang Teacher Günther Burghardt

I discovered Miksang when I got in contact with the Shambhala Buddhist Lineage in 2011. The images I saw were so peaceful, clear and straight to the heart, that I immediately fell in love with them. They did not want to sell anything – they were just there, present in that very moment, nothing missing, nothing to be added. 

I wanted to learn more about this practice. So I started taking workshops with my teacher Hiltrud Enders in Düsseldorf/Germany and in 2016 with Michael Wood and Julie DuBose of the Miksang Institute in a workshop in Kyoto/Japan. It is because of their constant advice and guidance that I was able to develop on my path.

I regard Miksang as my daily practice and personal journey of seeing the world in a fresh and clear way, with a calm mind as foundation. It brings me joy and contentment, which I would like to share with others.

Since January 2021 I am authorized to teach “Making Contact” on behalf of the Miksang Institute.

I live in Bochum/Germany and I am available to teach in Europe in both English and German.
