Rainer Pervöltz grew up in Berlin. After finishing his studies in German and French literature he was invited to California and discovered there his true profession: he found several teachers, who taught him forms of Gestalt- and Bodytherapy, particularly Jack Lee Rosenberg and Eric Marcus. Here he also got in contact for the first time with different Buddhist and Taoist schools. Andrew DaPassano become his first spiritual teacher.
In London he studied Biodynamic Psychotherapy with Gerda Boyesen; for several years he worked as trainer for the Biodynamic Institute and founded later with friends the Chiron Centre, a place for psychotherapy and training. He lived in England for twelve years. Then he felt drawn back to Germany. Freiburg became his chosen hometown. Here too, he developed with friends a psychotherapy school, the Transpersonal School for Psychology and Psychotherapy.
He learned much from Mantak Chia in the framework of Taoist energywork, and Arnold Mindell became one of his most important teachers in the large field of the dreambody.
As therapist, supervisor, and teacher he works in Germany and other European countries.
