Educator, Philosopher, and counsellor in Pretoria, South Africa
Welcome to my landing page, my name is Andreas, I am a contemplative educational philosopher and counsellor.
My professional practice has predominantly been in online and distance lecturing of pre-service teachers in the field of Humanities with an emphasis on Philosophy of Education, Religious Studies, and other arts.
In the public sphere, I aspire to facilitate the incorporation of practical and depth wisdom into the lived experience. Hence I offer guidance, counselling, facilitation, mediation and consultation to individuals and groups with a focus on discovering meaning, creating purpose, pathworking, and fruition in their life paths. I adopt three pillars in my offering, these are:
1) wisdom orientation
- educational mentorship,
- philosophical inquiry,
- metaphysical counselling.
2) contemplative practice
- meditative observation,
- yoga practice and instruction.
3) intuitive culture
- critical and creative discernment,
- initiation and rite-of-passage work,
- mythography and archetypal inquiry,
- artefact creation
- sacred gamification
In my personal space, I have 20 years of experience in Buddhist practice, with direct teaching from the Lin Ji tradition as well as the Shan Tao tradition of Pure Land teaching. I also have experience with all major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, with a focus on the Madhyamaka tradition, Mahamudra tradition, and ultimately the Dzogchen tradition.
I also explore and engage in seemingly eclectic avenues of Process Psychology, Therapeutic Art modalities, Shamanic and primal intuitive therapies, and the Occult, Esoteric, Hermetic, magickal and philosophical traditions of the world.
If any of these meanderings resonate with you and you wish to explore your these offerings further then I welcome you to contact me and/or book a consultation.
