Originally from Trier, Germany, Rainer now lives in Austria with the rural Obenaus Community he co-founded, where people connect with their inner and outer nature. He initiated and co-hosts the Next-Stage.World gathering for organization re-inventors, consults with leadership and project teams and develops internet matches that align the developmental context of individuals and organizations. Before that, he worked in Brussels with the European Commission from 1994 to 2012, where he founded and led an in-house consulting service. In his work, Rainer combines Art of Hosting practices, Systemic Constellation Work, Action Learning, and process consultation along with his own process innovations. He presented recently at the Integral European Conference and will be co-leading self-organizing processes for this conference again, this year.
