Weekend Course with Gaby Volenko

We are very happy to invite you for a weekend of lectures with veteran Diamond Way teacher Gaby Volenko!
Gabriele Wohlfahrtstätter-Volenko was born 1954 in Düsseldorf, Germany. In 1972 she moved to Wuppertal to study music at the conservatory and then worked as a music teacher for children as well as an educator for students of music.

In 1979, on a trip to Copenhagen, she visited the Buddhist center of the Karma Kagyu lineage, met with Tenga Rinpoche and Hannah Nydahl and took refuge. One year later she became Lama Ole and Hannah’s student, and since then has been helping them in their work as much as she can in every way.

In 1979 together with friends, she started the Diamond Way Buddhist Center in Wuppertal, where she lived and worked for 25 years. Between 1990 and 1995 Lama Ole Nydahl sent her to help build up the Diamond Way Buddhist centers in Russia and Ukraine. Today, besides teaching Dharma in Diamond Way centers worldwide Gabi is running her “Institute for Deep Relaxation” in Wuppertal.
