Arne Schaefer, JDPSN, began practicing in the Tibetan Kagyu Tradition — Diamond Way — in 1990. But in 1992, he sat a two-day retreat with Zen Master Seung Sahn in Berlin and has practiced with the Kwan Um School ever since. In April 2010, Arne received Inka, or permission to teach, from Zen Master Wu Bong. And today he serves as the guiding teacher of the Zen Centers in Dresden, Bad Bramstedt and in Hamburg. Together with his wife, Arne created Lotus Consult, a coaching and consulting business that integrates Buddhist insight with psychological frameworks to help small to medium-sized companies. In 2010, Arne also started mindsweets, a small confectioner specializing in organic sweets.
