Gerjan Schoemaker started teaching Vipassana meditation by Dingeman Boot. In addition, Gerjan has studied various other meditation techniques, including breathwork and active meditations. Before that, he followed various educations, training courses, courses and retreats. Buddhism remains his common thread and all meditations and trainings that Gerjan offers are approached from a Buddhist perspective. Gerjan focuses in particular on Theravada Buddhism, but interprets it mainly from a secular perspective and carries it out in this way. Gerjan has been head teacher of a meditation teacher training in Amsterdam and Almere from 2016 to 2020. From now on he focuses entirely on his own Meditation Institute Vihara.
