Arne Schelling studied Western and Chinese medicine in Germany and China and now works as a physician in Berlin. From 1995 to 2001 he worked to develop the Kagyu Centers Theksum Tashi Chöling in Hamburg and Kamalashila-Institute in Langenfeld, Germany. He frequently translates (from English to German) for masters of all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions, in Germany and Switzerland.
From 2001-2012 Arne served as president of Siddhartha’s Intent Europe, and he later became a country representative for Khyentse Foundation in Germany. Since 2002 he has directed the film project “Heart Advice,” which aims to preserve the essence of the teachings of Tibetan masters. He also gives instruction at several Buddhist centers in Germany.
“There are only a handful of KF representatives for all of Europe, so we are hoping to work more closely together to bring the European community together through Rinpoche’s work. I encourage people from European countries to contact me with any suggestions or requests.”
