Claudia was born in 1956 in Germany, and first studied sociology at the University of Frankfurt. In 1981 she met the Buddhist master Lama Thubten Yeshe, who made such a big impression on her that she decided to study Buddhist Philosophy at Nalanda Monastery in France. Claudia is an accredited facilitator for The a.r.t. of Fulfilment Level 1 and Building Balanced Empathy delivering courses in English, German and Italian.

Since 1987 she has been working as a teacher of Buddhist philosophy and meditation and as an editor/publisher. Because of her keen interest in bridging Western and Eastern approaches to inner development in 1993 she started training in compassion-based psychotherapy and since 2001 works as a Tara Rokpa therapist, mainly with groups.

Since the idea of Universal Education was conceived by Lama Thubten Yeshe Claudia has observed its development and in 2016 when there was a chance to train as a facilitator for The a.r.t of Fulfilment she took the chance.
