About the Author

I was born in West Germany where I received my basic education. I obtained my Bachelor(of Science) degree at the Sorbonne, my Masters and Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. I have lived in Mexico and Guatemala for a year. In the summer of 1975 I met the Indian philosopher J. Krishnamurti and the physicist David Bohm in Saanen Switzerland.

We soon became friends, and in 1977 I accepted an invitation by J. Krishnamurti to come to the United States, to establish an Educational Center for Krishnamurti in Ojai California, the seat of the Krishnamurti Foundation of America. Before that, in 1977, I had the privilege of accompanying Krishnamurti on a four months visit to India. During the subsequent years I studied German and

Indian philosophy on my own (Hegel, Kant, Schelling, Jaspers, Heidegger, Zimmer, Evans Wentz (Tibetan Philosophy)) and held seminars at the Krishnamurti Foundation. In many respects David Bohm was my teacher during that time. In 1980 I left the Foundation and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Here I have been a physics professor at Diablo Valley College since 1986. I have taught a few courses on Krishnamurti at John F. Kennedy University and a course on Karl Jaspers at the Center for Integral International Studies in San Francisco. For the last two years I have been using parts of Dancing With Maya with my students. Their response has often been enthusiastic.

In 1982 1 published a book together with my wife Margrete Heising, an artist painter, called "Next Step." It expresses through my wife's linoleum cuts and my poetry some of the basic ideas which I explore more explicitly in Dancing With Maya. In the paperback edition of David Peats biography of David Bohm Infinite Potential there is an afterword added by the author describing David Bohms and my criticism of Krishnamurti quoting some of our correspondence. The seed of Dancing With Maya is contained in that correspondence between David Bohm and myself.
