KIRSTEN KRATZ has practised Buddhist meditation in Asia and the West since 1993. She started teaching in 2006. Since 2015 she has been  supporting those on personal and work retreat in Gaia House. 

Her love and understanding of Dharma has been strongly influenced by, among others, the teachings of her friend and teacher colleague Rob Burbea.

Kirsten is co-initiator of the “Dharma Action Network for Climate Engagement” and supporting teacher of  Freely Given Retreats. One of her particular passions is exploring how wisdom teachings can foster appropriate responses to the challenges of our time and  Kirsten sees her activism as an important expression of her practice.
