What's your way to happiness?

There is no way to happiness - happiness is the way.
Hello. My name is Volker Winkler. I've been practicing buddhist meditation for 15 years now (Zen / Vipassana / Thich Nhat Hanh) and I've been teaching it for more than 10 years. In 2014 I wrote and published the book "Gehmeditation im Alltag" (Walking Meditation In Everyday Life) in German which was published in 2015 also in Italian. I'm currently working on an English translation.

I live and work in Ticino/Switzerland and in Italy teaching meditation and transformation in courses, seminars and individual therapy-sessions live and online. I am a "transformational therapist according to Robert Betz" and I offer this kind of therapy in English, Italian and German in my hometown of Lugano/Switzerland or on the phone or by Skype/Facetime to everybody who's interested.

I deeply believe in the transformational therapy by Robert Betz because I experienced its effectiveness on myself and saw impressive changes in many of my clients. I therefore also added this component of emotional and energetic transformation to my buddhist meditation practice and teaching by the use of guided visualized meditations. I called this combination of buddhist meditation with emotional transformation TALO: "Transformation through Awareness and Love".

You cand find out more about TALO on this website and you can learn sistematically how to practice it for yourself in the TALO-Meditation Academy. You can book transformational therapy-sessions here and get information about the ancient budhist practice of walking meditation in everydaylife-situations.

I hope you enjoy all this and I thank you in advance for any kind of feedback.
